Sharon Leal’s White Martian M’gann M’orzz/Miss Martian will soon be appearing alongside fellow Martian J’Onn J’Onzz/Martian Manhunter played by David Harewood though the character’s backstory etc. wasn’t revealed at the press tour. The character has appeared in the comics, particularly Teen Titans, and will be well known to television audiences who caught animated series Young Justice. M’gann was sent to Earth at a young age from Mars, which is a story that runs parallel with Supergirl’s though whether or not the show will run with that remains to be seen.
Sarah Leal joins a host of newcomers that include original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter as President of the United States, Ian Gomez as CatCo editor-in-chief Snapper Carr, Floriana Lima as gay Metropolis Special Crimes Unit captain Maggie Sawyer, Tyler Hoechlin as Superman and Chris Wood has just been revealed to play Mon-El and Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor.
