Jessica Meraz (Major Crimes, Chasing Life) has been cast in Supergirl, according to Deadline. Meraz will play Pamela Ferrer, aka Menagerie, an “iconic DC villain and a member of Manchesters Black’s ‘Elite.'”
Pamela Ferrer first appeared in Action Comics #775 in March 2001. In the comics, she is recruited to be a member of the Elite who try to “free the Earth of scum.” The group has dealings with Lex Luthor.
For Supergirl Season 4, Jesse Rath was upped to a regular as the Legion of Super Heroes’ Brainiac-5. This season’s new cast members include: Sam Witwer (Smallville) as Agent Liberty; transgender activist Nicole Maines (Royal Pains, The Trans List, Becoming Nicole book) as Nia Nal, aka Dreamer; April Parker Jones (Jericho, The Last Ship) as Colonel Haley; and David Ajala (Dr. Who, Nightflyers, The Dark Knight) as Manchester Black.
In Season Three, Kara (Melissa Benoist) grappled with the sacrifices she’s made and deciding if she should give up her human identity altogether. Being human and vulnerable is hard. Maybe she’s better off embracing her alien DNA and only being the “Girl of Steel.” As Kara struggled with her path forward, she continued to work with the DEO to battle all threats to National City, including new villains Morgan Edge (Adrian Pasdar), and the “Worldkiller,” known as Reign (Odette Annable).
Based on the DC characters created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, the series is executive produced by Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schechter, Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. Supergirl is produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
