david harewood Supergirl. cbs. dc comics. the action pixel. @theactionpixelDigital Spy recently caught up with actor Homeland David Harewood, who is set to play DEO (Department of Extra-Normal Operations) agent Hank Henshaw in the upcoming CBS series Supergirl.

Harewood definitely know his comics, and touches on his ‘indestructible’ character who he teases will become Cyborg Superman:

He’s a bit of a supervillain. He seems pretty indestructible. Which I kind of like because I keep getting blown up in these things. I’m kind of looking forward to being indestructible.

David Harewood is cyborg superman . supergirl. the action pixel. @theactionpixelHarewood also spoke to length about how things translate differently when representing a comic book character on film, as well as what to expect from the series and Melissa Benoist as Supergirl.

We think DC will probably go with Hank Henshaws more recent reimagining of his origin story, where Hank is an astronaut whose crew and himself become befallen by tragedy to which he blames Supes. Ends up dying, but not before transferring his mind and consciousness in a ‘birthing matrix’, ie how all Kryptonian are born, and becomes Cyborg Superman. Yeah, some far out sh*t.
