Details have emerged from today’s presentation by The CW at the Television Critics Association’s annual Summer Press Tour, with information about Season 2 of “Supergirl” revealing that the series will not only crossover with “The Flash”, “Arrow” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” in a 4-way saga, but that the Maid of Might and the Scarlet Speedster are set to feature in a two-part “musical crossover”.
Fans of Young Justice and Teen Titans may be excited to learn that Miss Martian will be showing up on Supergirl next season, played by Grimm‘s Sharon Leal. Considering we’ve only met one other White Martian on Supergirl so far and he was downright terrifying, it’ll be interesting to see what sort of relationship Leal’s character will have with Martian Manhunter.
Also appearing this season on Supergirl will be Mon-El, played by actor Chris Wood (Containment). Mon-El will first show up in Supergirl‘s season premiere and traditionally has powers very similar to Supergirl and Superman’s, despite hailing from a different planet. Wood’s been cast as a series regular, so we know Mon-El will be a significant presence when Supergirl returns in the fall. Whether the show will make any nods to the Legion of Super-Heroes, however, remains to be seen.
Finally, the producers also announced that Kevin Smith will be directing an episode of Supergirl in Season 2. Smith, of course, also directed a well-regarded episode of The Flash last season (and will be back to direct another episode in Flash Season 3).
