This newest season of Supergirl has introduced a bundle of new characters, most notably Miss Martian (Sharon Leal), the much loved member of Young Justice. She and Martian Manhunter are known for their lovable relationship, but in the show, have gotten a bit of a rocky start. Thankfully, this latter half of the season seems to be heralding a friendlier dynamic between the two.
In Entertainment Weekly’s episode of Spoiler Room, Natalie Abrams revealed a statement from show-runner and executive producer Andrew Kreisberg to answer a fan’s question on the topic of Miss Martian and Martian Manhunter.4
“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.”
What do you think about them romantically attached? Do you think it’ll be weird, because of them being niece and uncle in the animated show, or does that not bother you too much? (Keep in mind that their relationship is completely different in Supergirl than in Young Justice. Let us know what you think!
