Oh come on, who thought David Anders, aka Takezo Kensei, was down for the count when Hiro teleported the immortal troublemaker into, literally, an early grave? Anders said as much while attending an Eclipse event in the United Kingdom. Not only will Adam Monroe return for
the first six episodes one of the first six episodes of Season 3, but Anders feels that, because of Monroe’s status as a villain, he would fit in perfectly with the rest of Season 3′s theme — i.e. “Villains”.
“I believe so, yeah. I hope so. I know I’m going to be in one of the first six so … .” Anders told SyFy Portal’s Alan Stanley Blair at this weekend’s Eclipse event in the United Kingdom. “But after that, it’s called ‘Villains,’ and I am an uber-villain.”
In the third volume of the series, the villains of the show will get a chance to show just how bad they can be. Among them are Adam, Angela Petrelli (Christine Rose), 12 new characters still to be revealed and also someone that Anders feels he would struggle to live up to: the infamous power-snatching Sylar (Zachary Quinto).
“Sylar is hard to beat. Sylar’s eyebrows alone … ,” he added with a laugh. “Adam is just misunderstood. ‘When God wasn’t happy with what he’d created he made it rain for 40 days and 40 nights. He just washed it all away.’ I love my lines.”
Interesting that he mentions Angela Petrelli as one of the “villains” of Season 3. I guess we always thought of her as not very nice, but as an out-and-out villain? That’s something new.
What do you think about Adam Monroe’s return?
