PRESS RELEASE
 
DC CHARACTERS TO VISIT NATIONAL CITY FOR SEASON THREE OF SUPERGIRL
 
Executive Producers and Cast Introduce New Characters at Saturday’s Comic-Con Panel
 
Adrian Pasdar (Heroes), Carl Lumbly (Alias), Yael Grobglas (Jane the Virgin) and Emma Tremblay (Elysium) Join for Season 3
 
BURBANK, Calif. (July 22, 2017) — “A Martian, two villains and a young lady walk into a bar in National City…” Although it sounds like the setup for a Comic-Con–inspired joke, it’s actually the latest casting news from Supergirl’s panel Saturday, July 22. Fans not only learned more about the emerging threat from DC Worldkiller Reign (Odette Annable), but also were introduced to a few more characters poised to cross paths with Supergirl in season three.

Adrian Pasdar (Heroes, Colony, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) will play the charismatic capitalist Morgan Edge, a ruthless real estate developer who will stop at nothing to get what he wants (and what he feels he deserves). The DC villain’s big plans for National City instantly put him at odds with Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath).
 
Carl Lumbly (top) will play M'yrnn J'onzz. Art copyright DC Entertainment Inc.
Carl Lumbly (Alias, Southland, The Cure for Wellness) embodies the classic DC character M’yrnn J’onzz, the father of J’onn J’onnz, the Martian Manhunter (David Harewood). A pacifist religious leader on Mars, M’yrn pushes his son in unexpected ways. Actor Lumbly is no stranger to the J’onzz family, as he’s voiced the Martian Manhunter on the Justice League animated series.
 
Yael Grobglas
Yael Grobglas (Jane the Virgin, Reign) portrays DC character Psi, a psychic villain who uses people’s own minds against them. Psi’s agenda puts her on Supergirl’s radar, and their meeting will affect the Girl of Steel in surprising ways.
 
Emma Tremblay
Emma Tremblay (Elysium, The Judge, The Giver, Wayward Pines) plays Ruby, a smart, independently minded National City kid who’s fascinated by Supergirl and ends up in jeopardy because of it.
 
Supergirl returns for its third season Monday, October 9, at 8/7c on The CW. Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Sarah Schechter, Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. Supergirl is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

Saturn Girl is coming to Supergirl Season 31

Bollywood actress (and brunette) Amy Jackson will essay the role. HERE'S the EW story.

First Mon-El, now Imra Ardeen. Can the Legion really be far behind?

Supergirl returns Oct. 9.

I'm over the moon about Saturn Girl!

What a coincidence, since she is from one of Saturn's moons! You must be psychic!  photo whistling.gif

Two Trump digs in the season opener.

... and one of them is insanely timely!

Looking forward to it. Kathy's away this week, so I'm holding off watching until she's home.

Was that spaceship under water supposed to be Mon-El's?

Isn't that the third ship that was shown rocketing away from Krypton in last season's finale?

OK, so that's the ship with the villain Reign.

Supergirl killed those White Martians in last night's episode.

Where's the outrage?

I haven't seen it yet, but I'm guessing J'onn J'onzz loses every fight he's in.

He's pretty much oh-for-the-series, whether physical or mental. 

I kind of liked the parallel stories of J'Onn and Maggie seeking acceptance from their fathers. One receives it, and one doesn't.

It still bothers the heck out of me that they plainly have Renee Montoya on screen but are caling her "Maggie Sawyer." bang head photo banghead.gif
