Some interesting news regarding Supergirl was released late yesterday evening. It seems that James Olson is not going to just be a photographer anymore. Now he is going to be suiting up as, ‘The Guardian‘. For more details on this interesting move, check out the details below and share your thoughts AFTER THE JUMP. Supergirl airs Monday’s at 7pm Central on the CW.
Andrew Kreisberg revealed James Olson — played by Mehcad Brooks on The CW program — will soon be bit by the hero bug and become The Guardian.
“James will decide he can no longer sit back and be a sidekick,” the producer said. “[It] will cause massive problem in his relationship with Kara because he has decided not to tell her.”
With Kara unwilling to support vigilantes, there will be a “push-pull” between Supergirl and the Guardian.
Calling the development an “interesting career trajectory,” Kreisberg revealed James will also recruit Winn (Jeremy Jordan) into his new crusade. “Winn is his man in the van. Putting Winn and James together is like comedy gold.” Winn will also keep his involvement secret from the DEO and have to explain “why he walks in exhausted, and why he has a black eye.”
