I had been busy with my con prep and the convention itself so didn't comment on the casting of Reactron announced last week.
Here is Entertainment Weekly's article: http://www.ew.com/article/2015/07/29/supergirl-reactron-chris-browning
And here is a blurb that I found interesting!
Unfortunately, being the cousin of the Man of Steel comes with its drawbacks. Since Krull has never been able to defeat his rival, he’ll venture to National City to get revenge on Superman by trying to kill Supergirl.
I don't know much about Chris Browning despite having seen a number of movies he has been in. Maybe they were smaller roles? He looks to have a rugged enough look to be Reactron.
But the big news is that he is a Superman villain on the show and is looking to get revenge. I love the fact that Superman will be something of a presence (even if physically absent) on the show. And how great will it be when Supergirl defeats him, again having her grow as a hero and maybe stepping out a bit from Superman's shadow by defeating one of his villains.
And you already know how much I love Reactron. I am really happy that he is appearing here because he is truly a Supergirl villain, one of her few pure rogues.
