Mon-El actor Chris Wood recollects the foolish "stunt" that resulted in him breaking his jaw while filming& Supergirl. The Arrowverse collection has enjoyed a long term, however it is going to be coming to an finish very soon.& Supergirl, which stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, started out on CBS before shifting to The CW for season 2. Through the present's 6-season run, Supergirl has faced countless enemies and teamed up with fellow Arrowverse heroes like The Flash (Grant Gustin) and Batwoman (Ruby Rose). The sixth and last season is at present airing and will conclude in November.

Supergirl has featured a wide and eclectic group of characters through the years, but some are extra memorable than others. One of the crucial controversial is probably Mon-El, a Daxamite prince who joined the collection in its second season. Mon-El initially hid his royal heritage from Kara, however after they shaped a romantic relationship, he got here clean. Wood remained a collection regular on& Supergirl& for two seasons before departing, though he's come back a number of occasions as a visitor star. He'll even be among these returning for the collection finale, together with Jeremy Jordan (Winn Schott) and Mehcad Brooks (Jimmy Olsen).

During this weekend's DC FanDome occasion,& Supergirl acquired a particular farewell panel featuring the whole forged.& When wanting back on a number of the wildest stunts from the show, Wooden talked about a scene from season 2 when he needed to chew into 10 pancakes directly. His castmates have been quick to giggle, but Wooden identified that it wasn't all that funny as a result of "my jaw kind of dislocated just a little bit." The& Supergirl forged also teased him for deeming it a stunt, but he defended the qualification. "It was an enormous stack of pancakes and I used to be like, 'Oh, this is gonna be so funny,' and then my jaw went like," Wooden stated before demonstrating the painful moment.

Injuries on the set of a superhero production aren't uncommon, and the Arrowverse itself is not any stranger to those sorts of incidents. Before departing& Batwoman, Rose needed to get emergency surgery after sustaining a neck damage on set. When considering that instance, Wood's& Supergirl expertise is not as drastic. Nevertheless, a dislocated jaw is way from enjoyable, and to have it happen throughout an innocuous kitchen scene in all probability came as fairly a shock.

Whereas& Supergirl's finish is bittersweet for the fans and people who worked on the show, there are some causes as to why this is the right time to conclude it. Kara has been on quite the journey over these past 6 seasons, and hopefully she'll go out on a excessive notice. For her half, Benoist admitted in the course of the DC FanDome panel that she is going to miss enjoying a superhero, although she'd stated before that she won't be sorry to go away& Supergirl's flying scenes behind. This forged has endured loads of bumps and bruises, but now they will rest and& content themselves with a job properly finished.
