Sorbo & Hatcher Roles Revealed?

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kevin Sorbo talked about his new role on Supergirl. As you can imagine, at this stage he isn't allowed to say much but what he did say might have been enough for us to put the pieces together. We've had to make some assumptions here based on what he said but we think you'll agree with our analysis. Here's what Kevin had to say:

I leave next week! I'm heading up to Vancouver, and I'll be doing a three-show arc, and Teri Hatcher's playing my wife. I'm from another planet that's an arch-rival planet of Krypton. Which is now of course destroyed.

First and foremost, this easily confirms that both Kevin Sorbo and Teri Hatcher's new big bad villains are going to be related, they are husband and wife! Secondly, Kevin confirms he is not from Earth but "an arch-rival planet of Krypton". Well in the Supergirl canon we know of only one arch-rival planet that was destroyed when Krypton was and that is Daxam! So who would be roughly the age of Teri and Kevin and from Daxam? Mon-El's Parents. Now here's the big leap, if the rumors are true that perhaps Mon-El is a Prince, then that would make them, The King and Queen of Daxam.

Furthermore, Sorbo and Hatcher will be making their Supergirl debut in episode 217 which is the first episode after the musical crossover with the Flash! Episode 217 is of note as well because Kevin Smith is returning to the director's chair! Both Kevin Smith and Kevin Sorbo confirmed (via his podcast and ET interview respectively) that filming on episode 217 starts next week!

For a supposed Prince bodyguard, one might have supposed that Mon-El would already have known something about hand to hand combat; in particular, he might have known more than Kara does. Of course, his duties may have been different from conventional budyguards, such as procuring drink, bailing the Prince out of jail, and summoning beautiful young women, but not lowering himself to the indignity of personal combat.

You just don't know how excited I am for this ARC...!!

I'f Mon-el gained powers, they will experience some change as well!!

What if they gain the ability to fly as well?!!?!?

THE TENSION WHEN THEY MEET KARA. This is going to be epic.

Well done to you Kelly, while you were right I was completely wrong as I thought they might be associated with Cadmus.

Anyways it will be good to see them together and where the story goes.

Kevin Sorbo has stated he's got a 3 episode arc so it will be interesting if that's episodes 17,18 and 19 and perhaps we get the Cadmus story-line to finish the season or could it be something like episodes 17,20 and 22 which will then form a big part of the end of the season.

I think you got it right. This promises to be an awesome episode. What if there the King and Queen of Daxam and Mon-El was actually the Prince's body guard and there after him for escaping while the prince died.Thats a pretty good reason to seek revenge.

Smith and Sorbo of course. So now we can assume that Teri and Kevin S. will be playing two people from Daxam...and that spells disaster for Mon-El.

As for Kevin Smith, this is the episode he has earned IMHO after his fine "Supergirl Lives."

Very interesting. The arch rival planet might be Daxam or another one altogether that has not yet been fully revealed. We'll just have to wait and see. 8)
