Revenge's Henry Czerny To Battle Supergirl As The Toyman

henry-czerny-5Ever since Jeremy Jordan was cast as a character called "Winn Schott" in Supergirl, which premieres tonight, many assumed he would eventually turn out to be Winslow Schott, The Toyman of Superman lore. But according to comicbook.com, Revenge's Henry Czerny has been cast as Winslow Schott, described as Win's estranged father.

The character has gone through many interpretations over the years, from the cackling Joker proxy in Superfriends to a grim ripper-esque take in the comics of the 1990s. The new Schott will weaponize his toys, but attempt reconciliation with his son.

Currently, Czerny will appear in one episode, but it unclear when it will air.
