Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman star has been tapped for a multi-episode arc on The CW’s SUPERGIRL. While Hatcher will play a major villain in the back half of season two, further details on the role are being kept under wraps.

Hatcher is not the first character from Lois & Clark to join the CW-DC universe. Dean Cain who played Superman occasionally makes guest appearances on the series as Kara Zor-El’s adoptive father, Jeremiah Danvers.

Danvers is currently being held captive at Project Cadmus. Once Kara discovered this, she quickly made it her mission to save her father and bring Project Cadmus down. Considering the previous relationship between Hatcher and Cain on screen as Lois Lane and Clark Kent, it would be a great moment for the show to bring the pair together as part of this growing story arc.

The series has repeatedly used meta-casting in just its first two seasons. In addition to Hatcher and Cain, the series has also cast previous Supergirl incarnation, Helen Slater, as Kara’s adoptive mother, and Wonder Woman‘s Lynda Carter has guest starred as the President of the United States.

Hatcher has also appeared with Supergirl star Mehcad Brooks during her time on ABC’s Desperate Housewives. Brooks currently plays Jimmy Olsen/the Guardian. Hatcher most recently appeared in a recurring role opposite Matthew Perry on CBS’s The Odd Couple.
