Warner Bros. has unleashed a first look at Supergirl’s Red Tornado over the weekend. And it’s ... well, see for yourselves.
The first official pic of Salem actor Iddo Goldberg all dressed up as Red Tornado is out, and I have to say: It’s not looking so hot. Although his overall look is somewhat similar to the DC Comics character, it reaaaalllly doesn’t translate well here. At all. In fact, he looks like a very cheap version of Marvel’s other sentient android, Vision. Hopefully he'll look better when we see him in action on our TV screens.
Guys, I understand superhero TV productions don’t have as much money to spend on lavish costumes as their big-screen counterparts, but just look at The CW’s The Flash and at how awesome the Scarlet Speedster's suit turned out to be! It can be done. Although one could argue Flash is a main character that appears episode after episode and Red Tornado is not.
CBS describes Red Tornado as "the most advanced android the world has ever seen. Designed by scientist T.O. Morrow for the U.S. Army as the ultimate superweapon, he soon becomes sentient, posing a grave danger to National City — including the people Supergirl cares about most."
