Supergirl Casts Brit Morgan as Livewire

Supergirl has cast Brit Morgan as the DC Comics villain Livewire for its upcoming premier season.

Appearing in a guest-starring role, Morgan will bring the famed Superman character to life as a “abrasive and funny shock-jock,” Variety reports. But when her later ego, Leslie Willis, endures a freak accident that transforms her into the electricity-based supervillain Livewire, Melissa Benoist's Supergirl must stop her shocking crime spree.

Morgan's former television credits include Trueblood, Criminal Minds, and The Mentalist. She joins Supergirl's growing DC Comics cast, which includes Red Tornado, Maxwell Lord, and the Kryptonian outlaw Non.

Supergirl premiers October 26 at 8:30 on CBS. Are you excited to see Livewire on the small screen? Let us know in the comments!
