Melissa Benoist (The CW’s Supergirl) will voice the character of Overgirl in CW Seed’s upcoming animated show Freedom Fighters: The Ray. Overgirl is the evil, Earth-X version of Kara Zor El and CW Seed are the digital arm of The CW channel.
Taking place on an alternate Earth-X – a world where the Nazis won World War II – Freedom Fighters: The Ray is about Ray and his friends fighting against Nazi-aligned versions of popular Arrowverse Heroes including Green Arrow, Flash and Kara Zor El, for the freedom of the world.
Executive Marc Guggenheim told TV Insider:
“Melissa is so sweet, and so is her interpretation of Supergirl. It was fun to hear her voice records and see she’s capable of a darkness. I think she really enjoyed playing the bad guy for a bit!”
Overgirl appears in the trailer for the animated show. She doesn’t speak a word in the trailer, but she does grunt in way that clearly reveals it’s Melissa. You can watch that trailer here:
Some of the other Arrow-verse characters to appear will be Cisco Ramon, Mister Terrific and Vixen. This is also nothing new for the Arrow-verse actors – many of them reprised their live-action roles in Vixen; the other The CW Arrow-verse TV show.
