Ever since James (Mehcad Brooks) became Guardian on “Supergirl,” a lot of fans have begun to wonder whether his sidekick Winn (Jeremy Jordan) will also get an alias and a super suit of his own at some point in the season.
These fan concerns were addressed by Jordan during a recent chat with TVLine, and based on his comments, it seems that the CW series has no immediate plans for Winn to either adopt a codename or put on his own super suit. “At this point, they’re just calling him ‘the man in the van,’ which is equal parts hilarious and creepy,” Jordan said. “I think we’ll stick with that for now. It has yet to be determined, at least in Winn’s mind, whether this Guardian thing will be able to sustain himself.”
While it appears that Winn won’t be getting a cooler vigilante moniker anytime soon, Jordan revealed on Twitter that he has already thought of one in case the show’s writers ask him for suggestions.
Although it also seems that fans aren’t going to see Winn sporting a super suit in future episodes, Jordan said that it won’t be out of Winn’s character if he ends up designing a suit for himself. “I doubt Winn would be against building a suit for himself,” the 32-year-old actor said. “Maybe [it’s going to be] a big bubble that no one would break into.”
When a fan tweeted Jordan that she thinks Winn has already made a super suit for himself in secret, Jordan replied, “He’s made many.”
