Last night’s episode of Supergirl featured the departures of both Superman and Cat Grant. While the latter will return sporadically throughout the show’s second season, the Man of Steel’s future on The CW is unknown. Regardless, this trailer for next week’s instalment makes it clear that Kara Danvers is going to have plenty to keep her busy.
In it, we get a first look at Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman) as the President of the United States. The actress coming to Supergirl is something which has been receiving a lot of mainstream media coverage, which has no doubt made Warner Bros. very happy seeing as they’re looking to ensure that viewers have followed the series from CBS.
For more on what to expect from the next episode of Supergirl – titled “Welcome to Earth” – here’s the official synopsis.
An attack is made on the President (guest star Lynda Carter) as hot-button, alien vs. human rights issues heat up in National City. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and the DEO are assigned to protect the President and bring in the responsible party. Alex (Chyler Leigh) teams up with Detective Maggie Sawyer (Floriana Lima) to investigate the case while Kara searches for a recently escaped Mon-El (Chris Wood), who she fears may be the alien behind the assault. Rachel Talalay directed the episode written by Jessica Queller and Derek Simon.
The promo features a first look at a number of different alien menaces, but could the character at the end possibly be Sharon Beal as Miss Martian? It’s hard to say for sure, but with her set to partner up with Martian Manhunter this season, it’s entirely possible that the network is teasing the hero’s arrival here.
We’ll have to wait and see on that, but things are looking good for Supergirl on The CW so far. The show seems to really be finding its feet over there and this trailer certainly points to that continuing to be the case.
