Do we already have The Martian Manhunter in the DC Cinematic Universe?

Have we seen The Martian Manhunter in the DCEU?

According to a social media exchange involving director Zack Snyder (below) we may have.

Snyder was asked if General Swanwick was the Martian Manhunter in the DC Movies and Snyder replied that he loved the idea:

Of course this has been a fan favourite theory for a long time – ever since Man of Steel, really – and we actually love the idea ourselves as we’ve been fans of actor Harry Lennix for a very long time and we’ve always hoped that General Swanwick would turn out to be J’onn J’onzz, The Martian Manhunter, in the DC Cinematic Universe, especially given how the character is portrayed in The CW’s Supergirl series… Swanwick would be a perfect J’onzz; so here’s hoping.

And, if he DID turn out to be the Manhunter, would that put Justice League’s original tagline of Unite The Seven in a different light?
