First Villain Revealed in Pilot

Whoa, Supergirl is going to fight ... The Lumberjack in the Pilot?! is reporting that the show runners are looking for someone like, Game of Thrones alumni, Rory McCann (The Hound) to play the Lumberjack who is tasked with fighting with Kara to ascertain her real power levels on behalf of an unknown villain.

Kara Danvers née Zor-El will have her work cut out for her from the get-go, seeing as her adversary in the series pilot will be the DC Comics baddie Lumberjack. To that end, the CBS freshman is seeking a hulk akin to “Rory McCann, the 6-foot-6 actor from Game of Thrones” (pictured above) to play this “big, burly monster of a man, who has battled Kara’s cousin” — that’d be you-know-who — “in the past” and shows up to ascertain her level of power, on behalf of an unseen superior.

Hmmm, did you hear that, sounds like the Lumberjack has fought Superman before too.  More evidence that Superman will be in the show in some context too.

There are some HUGE DC fans here in the office and none of us have heard of the Lumberjack. Not really a grade A first villain but its better than Kryptonite-freak-of-the-week. What do you think, is this a good villain?  Let us know below!
