J'Onn J'Onzz the Martian Manhunter won't be the only Martian on Earth for long.
David Harewood's character will soon be joined by Sharon Leal as M'gann M'orzz, better known as Miss Martian.
The character, a major player in Geoff Johns's run on Teen Titans, is probably best known to TV audiences from her appearances on the animated cult hit Young Justice.
Leal has a number of notable credits to her name, including multi-episode arcs on Private Practice, Hellcats, and Grimm.
M'gann is actually a White Martian who decided to become "good" and elected to look like a Green Martian instead. The concept of White Martians was introduced in the eleventh episode of Supergirl's first season, when Martian Manhunter had to face one down.
There had been some speculation that due to the on-again, off-again Titans series that Warner Bros. Television was trying to develop, Miss Martian may have been off the table for Supergirl. At this point, that show looks like it won't happen.
The announcement, made today at the Television Critics Association upfronts, didn't come with any details about what the character might do in her live-action debut.
Supergirl hasn't been shy about drawing from Teen Titans and other fairly recent material like the "World of New Krypton" arc in the Superman titles from about ten years ago, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Miss Martian first show up as an operative for the White Martians before being turned. Whether she'll become a recurring or regular character isn't yet clear.
