‘Supergirl’ EP Teases What’s Next For Martian Manhunter & Miss Martian

Supergirl Miss Martian Martian ManhunterSeason two of Supergirl introduced a very beloved DC Comics character as M’gann M’orzz a.k.a. Miss Martian (Sharon Leal) entered the live-action DC TV Universe. While she and J’onn J’onzz a.k.a. the Martian Manhunter (David Harewood) has had it challenging in their dynamic so far, it looks like things are going to start get better for the two martians in the second half of the season.

In Entertainment Weekly’s recent edition of Spoiler Room, a fan asked for what’s coming up for J’onn now that he is no longer turning into a White Martian. Natalie Abrams revealed the following statement from show-runner and executive producer Andrew Kreisberg who teased that some great things are coming up for both J’onn and M’gann.

“His relationship with M’gann is an important one over this next batch of episodes. There is some really great stuff for David [Harewood] and Sharon [Leal] that we are really excited about. We love Sharon’s performance and we love seeing David and Sharon together, it’s some of our favorite stuff this season. We’ve been really lucky with our romantic pairings this season and we really think that J’onn and M’gann have a great storyline coming up.”

KEVIN SMITH DIRECTS; ROULETTE RETURNS — Kara (Melissa Benoist) is moved by the story of a missing woman named Izzy (guest star Harley Quinn Smith) and decides to investigate despite Snapper Carr’s (guest star Ian Gomez) order to leave it alone. Kara takes Mon-El (Chris Wood) with her to the last place Izzy was seen and the duo find themselves thrust through a portal to another planet, Slaver’s Moon, where the downtrodden are sold as slaves. The leader of the trafficking ring is none other than Roulette (guest star Dichen Lachman). To make matters worse, Slaver’s Moon has a red sun, which means Kara and Mon-El are stripped of their powers and stuck on the planet with no way home. Meanwhile, back on Earth, Alex (Chyler Leigh) blames herself for Kara’s disappearance, fearing she’s become too focused on her new relationship with Maggie (guest star Floriana Lima) and too complacent in watching out for her sister. Kevin Smith directed the episode with story by Andrew Kreisberg and teleplay by Eric Carrasco & Jess Kardos (#209). Original airdate 1/23/2017.”

Supergirl Season 2 returns with new episodes on Monday, January 23 at 8/7c on The CW. Make sure to check back at Heroic Hollywood after every single episode of Season 2 for our weekly reviews.

    Can’t wait to see how this interaction develops. It’s a different take on the Martian Manhunter/Miss Martian relationship, but I like where it’s gone thus far.

  • Barbara White

    I’m excited for this pairing. This show, however, is a tease as far as pairings are concerned. Why should we trust anything they do, especially after Kara and James? I’m not putting any faith in these pairings, especially Alex and Maggie. These things are temporary on these shows. It’s disheartening and sad.
