[WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS!!]
After what seems like an eternity of teasing the true identity of Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), it was revealed last night that he is in fact none other than J’Onn J’Onzz – better known as the Martian Manhunter!
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said “It’s the secret of Supergirl: within the body of the series of Supergirl, there is a Martian Manhunter series rolling throughout it. It’s the thing that makes us giggle the most.”
Executive producer Ali Adler added that J’Onn’s abilities will blow Kara’s out of the water. “He’s got such tremendous powers. We really want to show off what he can do, and we’re definitely going to do that in upcoming episodes.”
Harewood added “There’s a lot of fun to be had. He’s a shape-shifter so he can be whoever he wants to be. So you’ll find me being other members of the cast at some various points of the story.”
So what do we think about the addition of Martian Manhunter to our television screens, and are there any other characters you’d like to see make their small screen debut?
Supergirl airs Monday nights on CBS
