‘Supergirl’ Season 3 Trailer Mourns Mon-El, Adds Adrian Pasdar and More
Supergirl Season 2 had Kara hoping to define her human life, but Season 3’s first trailer isn’t quite so understanding. See for yourself, as Comic-Con 2017 reveals a jaded Girl of Steel in the Season 3 trailer, also adding Smallville star Erica Durance, S.H.I.E.L.D. alum Adrian Pasdar and a familiar Martian Manhunter.
Comic-Con 2017 saw the early release of Supergirl Season 3’s first trailer, as Kara grows cold in the wake of saying goodbye to Mon-El (Chris Wood). Mind you, the panel cemented that Mon-El would be back in some form, while the official announcements teased at least four major new figures:
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 (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 (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 (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.
Elsewhere of Supergirl Season 3, we know that Odette Annable will play “World-Killer” big-bad Reign, while Katie McGrath’s Lena Luthor has been elevated to series regular and Floriana Lima’s Maggie Sawyer has been downgraded to recurring. Calista Flockhart will return in a brief capacity, though no word on Tyler Hoechlin’s Superman. Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner have also been elevated to co-showrunners with co-creator Andrew Kreisberg.
Supergirl will return this October, so stay tuned for new Season 3 details.
