Breaking images of Mehcad Brooks‘ James Olsen as the fully suited up Guardian on Supergirl have been revealed! The costume looks interesting if nothing else. It’s not as colorful as its blue and gold comic book counterpart, but I’m sure that the costume designers wanted the character to stand out on its own visually and not clash with Supergirl’s costume.
“James has a pretty big turn coming up. These next few episodes are going to make him realize that being a photographer…is not enough for him, so he’s going to go on a pretty exciting career trajectory that we’re pretty pumped by,” revealed executive producer Andrew Kreisberg. “James is going to decide that he can no longer sit back and be a sidekick, so he’s going to become a vigilante. He’s going to become Guardian, complete with the shield, which is going to cause a massive problem in his relationship with Kara, becuase he’s not going to tell her.”
James and Winn will be working as a team with Winn as his “man in the van,” so Winn will now be on both team Supergirl and team Guardian, all the while trying to keep James’ “moonlighting” on the down low from Supergirl and the DEO.
