It looks like Supergirl will be facing off against another extra-terrestrial threat in its third season.
That Hashtag Show recently uncovered a new Supergirl casting call, which hints at the appearance of at least one member of the Tormocks.
"[TORMOCK] Female, 20s-40s, open ethnicity. A warrior of Amazonian stature, jacked, tough and brutal, she is a fierce alien prisoner. Dangerous and angry, she gets into a violent fight…GUEST STAR"
It's unknown exactly what role the Tormocks could have in Supergirl, but there's a chance they could bring in a whole new corner of the DC Comics cosmos. The Tormocks have a rather colorful comic background, and are able shapeshift with inanimate objects.
The race of monstrous, fascistic aliens first debuted in Guy Gardner: Warrior. The series chronicled the Tormocks' ongoing fued with the Vuldarians. When Guy Gardner realized that he was one of the last Vuldarians, he did away with his Lantern ties and adopted his Warrior heritage. The Tormocks then came for Guy, but were cast out by the hero and various other cosmic heroes.
It's too early to tell exactly when this Tormock character, who will probably have an actual name within the world of Supergirl, will debut. And it's unknown if other members of the Tormocks will follow behind them, or if the Vuldarian conflict will make its way into the show. Either way, their presence will certainly bring a unique foe for the Girl of Steel.
Supergirl airs Mondays at 8/7c on The CW.
