Ever since we saw the crash of the mysterious pod in the Season 1 finale of Supergirl, fans have been wondering who is inside the pod and while we learned at Comic-Con that Christopher Wood was inside of it, we still didn’t know who he is playing other than that he had been cast as a mysterious “big DC Comics hero”.
Well it looks like we don’t have to wonder any more as it was revealed today during The CW’s Superhero Hour panel at the Television Critics Association Summer Press Tour that Wood is playing the DC Comics character, Mon-El! This news broke during the same panel that also revealed that Sharon Leal will be playing Miss Martian in Season 2.
“Now, in Season Two, Kara has left the safety of being Cat Grant’s assistant in order to figure out what she really wants to do, while as Supergirl she continues to work at the DEO., protecting the citizens of National City and searching for Jeremiah and Cadmus. Along the way, she will team up with Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) to battle new villains, as she strives to balance her personal life with her life as a superhero.”
Supergirl Season 2 begins on Monday, October 10 at 8/7c at its new home, The CW.
