Freedom Fighters: The Ray – Melissa Benoist will play Overgirl in the animated series
Interviewed by TV Insider, Marc Guggenheim, executive producer of the tv series in the Arrowverse, stated that Melissa Benoist will lend the voice for Overgirl, the doppelganger of Supergirl on Earth-X, in the animated series Freedom Fighters: The Ray: “Melissa is very sweet and so is his interpretation of Supergirl. It was fun to hear his voice in the version so wicked. I think it is fun to interpret the bad.”
“It's called Freedom Fighters: The Ray for a specific reason. I wanted to lay the groundwork for the Freedom Fighters and Ground-to-X. In the Multiversity, Grant Morrison had an idea that we liked very much. The Freedom Fighters are composed of minorities persecuted by the nazis: women, homosexuals, jews. We wanted to pay homage to this idea. It is a story of the origin on iteration of The Ray of Earth-1.”
