During his Q&A panel at the Supanova convention in Sydney, Australia late last month, “Supergirl” actor David Harewood admitted that he didn’t like playing Cyborg Superman, criticizing how the character was written and portrayed visually.
“I don’t like playing Cyborg Superman,” Harewood said. “It’s boring. They didn’t really flesh it out, they didn’t really write for the character. They just gave me this rather cheap-looking mask and no costume, and said ‘Okay, you’re Cyborg Superman.’ But it didn’t really pan out – they didn’t really go into why he was a cyborg, how he became a cyborg, what his powers were… it was just kind of randomly calling him ‘Cyborg Superman.’ I was very excited about it at first, but then I very quickly realized that there wasn’t really much to it so, it’s kind of boring. Whenever I’m walking to my trailer and I see that costume, I just switch off. Because I know it’s going to be a really boring day.”
Harewood will return for Season 3 of “Supergirl”, which will premiere on The CW on Monday, October 9 at 8.00pm.
