Supergirl Toyman Henry Czerny

Supergirl Nabs Revenge's Henry Czerny to Play the Villainous Toyman

A former Hamptonite is booking a play date in Metropolis.

Henry Czerny, a three-season life ruiner on ABC’s Revenge, will appear in an upcoming episode of CBS’ Supergirl as Winslow Schott (aka iconic D.C. villain the Toyman), according to ComicBook.com and Supergirl.TV.

If you’re wondering why Czerny’s character shares a name with Jeremy Jordan’s Winn Schott, the answer is simple: He’s Winn’s estranged father! (Hey, I said the answer was simple, not the relationship.)

The Toyman has appeared in a number of different forms on television, both animated and live-action; he first showed up on The New Adventures of Superman in 1966, then went on to appear in episodes of Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman (1994), Superman: The Animated Series (1996), Justice League (2003) and Smallville (2004–2011).

Following his run on Revenge, Czerny guest-starred in the Season 1 finale of USA Network’s Satisfaction.

    He’s a great fit to play the villainous Toyman. So excited for tonight’s premiere.

    Didn’t Toyman kill Cat Grant’s son?

  3. Still no characters from the actual Supergirl comics…

    • Wordsmith says:

      Are there any that you would actually want to see?

      • Buzz and Wally The God Boy would be cool, but that would require they use a better version of Supergirl.

        From the Kara comics, I’m partial to Satan Girl. I would like to see a better version of Selena from the movie. She could be to Supergirl what Lex is to Superman (using Lex’s sister would be a rip off).

    Pretty interesting, I wouldn’t mind having him return and playing the big bad of the first season!

    So is he going to be her coworkers father?

    Is Supergirl also set in Metropolis?
