Supergirl: Peter Gadiot as Mr. Mxyzptlk Seen on Set

More Supergirl news? Yeesh! Well, now it’s dealing with the fourth live action appearance of Mr. Mxyzptlk (making appearances in Superboy, Lois and Clark, and Smallville before this). If you don’t know who he is, he is a magical imp (called a Zrfffian) from the fifth dimension and one of the more obscure enemies of the Superman rogue gallery. However, he is a fan favorite. He almost got his big screen appearance in 1983 in Superman III but was written out. This time, another generic CW pretty boy is playing the part of Mxy, Peter Gadiot. From what we see of him on set, he looks like a normal guy. This could be a disguise of some sort, or maybe in this PC world, they figured having an actual little person play the part might be too offensive or something. I don’t know but I’m hoping for the former. However, in previous incarnations he’s showed to be played by a normal guy, so maybe they will show him in the trademark orange suit and bowler hat later in the episode. I hope they get the character at least somewhat correct this time, but the actor isn’t doing much for me.

Supergirl will be airing ‘Supergirl Lives’, Monday, January 23rd.
