Arrowverse's Martian Manhunter spin-off from 'Supergirl' reportedly in the works and could be part of HBO Max's streaming service
There has been no word on the official title of the show or the other characters slated to appear in the series yet
The Arrowverse is all set to add a new show to its list and this time it will be the Martian Manhunter who will be getting his standalone series. Previously, it was announced that 'Arrow' will continue in a female-led spinoff.
According to We Got This Covered, the new series will see David Harewood return as J'onn J'onzz if it goes ahead. The site confirmed that this news came from their source — the same one that confirmed Tom Welling returning to 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' and that The CW was developing an Arrow spinoff for Katherine McNamara back in March.
The site also added that the show may not be a part of The CW Wagon, rather it may apparently be part of the HBO MAX streaming. The Martian Manhunter has been an integral part of 'Supergirl' since the beginning.
He Initially impersonated Hank Henshaw, who fans knew better as Cyborg Superman before his true form was revealed. In season four, J'onn is a private investigator and has been involved in scrimmages with his evil brother, Malefic.
There has been no word on the official title of the show or the other characters slated to appear in the series yet. Details about the plotline too are scarce.
With the 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' looming in the distance, it is yet to be seen how the spin-off may start off J'onn's story considering Team Supergirl will most likely play a key role in the multiverse-shattering battle.
The Martian Manhunter has a rich storyline in the comics and has been a key member of the Justice League. Created by writer Joseph Samachson and designed by artist Joe Certa, the character first appeared in the story 'The Manhunter from Mars' in Detective Comics #225.
Until we know more about the show, we can catch a lot more of Harewood's Martian Manhunter on The CW's 'Supergirl'.
