According to Kryptonsite, Sahar Biniaz (pictured) will guest star as Shayera (aka Hawkgirl) in an episode called “Shield.” Bradley Stryker will also appear in the episode as the infamous assassin “Deadshot,” best known for his appearances in the “Suicide Squad” and “Secret Six” comics.
Unsurprisingly, Michael Shanks (“Stargate: SG1”) will also reprise his role as Hawkman in the episode, following his debut during the previous season in the “Justice Society” episode by Geoff Johns.
Biniaz has actually appeared on “Smallville” three times before in minor roles and played Sabine in “Blade: The Series.” Biniaz also played a foreign reporter in “Watchmen” and recently guest starred on “Sanctuary” and on “Blue Mountain State” opposite former “Smallville” star, Sam Jones III.
Stryker has made recent guest appearances on “Psych,” “Stargate Universe” and “Supernatural.” Prior to that, he appeared in “Over There,” “Cold Case,” “Arrested Development” and “CSI: New York.”
Last month, it was confirmed that John Schneider will return in the first episode of the season as Jonathan Kent, with potentially another appearance to follow. Laura Vandervoort will also reprise her role as Kara (aka Supergirl) early in the season.
During the “Smallville” panel at Comic-Con, it was confirmed that Booster Gold and the Blue Beetle will also appear this season. It was also revealed that Darkseid will be the main villain for the year.
“Smallville” will return on Friday, September 24.
