I’ll be starting with Supergirl. First, Kara will be returning to journalism in season 4 for storylines that mirror our current reality. While spending more time at CatCo, Kara will be taking a new transgender character, Nia Nal (Nicole Maines) under her wing. For more on Nia and other new characters please watch the trailers and the full panel below.

Next, there’s Black Lightning. The newest CW offering gave viewers a recap trailer and massive amounts of camaraderie. In addition, TV Line reports that Jordan Calloway (Khalil) has become a series regular.
“I’m thrilled to have Jordan upped as a series regular,” showrunner Salim Akil said on Saturday at Black Lightning‘s San Diego Comic-Con panel. “He was a great asset to our show… during Season 1, and now that he has evolved into Painkiller, I can’t wait for you all to see him in Season 2.”

As with youngest sibling series, Black Lightning, there’s no panel footage for Arrow. Courtesy of TV Line, however, we know they’ve cast The Longbow Hunters, as well as brought back some former foes.
Red Dart| She’s described by the network as “a ruthless and precise killer” and will be played by Holly Elissa, who’s credits include guest spots on Supernatural and Fringe.
Silencer| Her description is perhaps appropriately enigmatic — she’s “a master of stealth” and will be played by The Magicians vet Miranda Edwards.
Kodiak| He’s said to be “a beast of a man with brute force” — and judging from that look on the face of his portrayer, Van Helsing alum Michael Jonsson, who could doubt it?
As if they weren’t enough to contend with, while Oliver is behind bars, he’ll be, er, “reunited” with a Who’s Who of the foes he’s sent to the slammer. Set to recur are Michael Jai White as Bronze Tiger, Cody Runnels as Derek Sampson and Vinnie Jones as Danny “Brick” Brickwell.

Second and most sad, the Legends will not be participating in the crossover this year. I really wanted Kara to interact with Constantine.
