Supergirl Season 4 Trailer Reveals New Transgender Superhero And Agent Liberty

Supergirl will return to the airwaves on a brand new night next month, and the Season 3 finale guarantees that things will be different for the Girl of Steel in her next batch of episodes. Her new villain will be formidable in a way Kara hasn't had to face before, but the good news is that a new superhero will enter the scene to lend a hand. A new trailer has officially debuted to reveal a look at the villainous Agent Liberty and the transgender superhero Nia Nal. Check it out!

This trailer provides a good look at Nia Nal, a.k.a. the transgender CatCo employee destined to become the superhero known as Dreamer. Played by transgender activist Nicole Maines, Nia Nal won't be a superhero right off the bat. Rather, she'll start out as a reporter at CatCo, driven by her desire to protect others. The new footage for Supergirl Season 4 shows Nia Nal in her reporter capacity, and it looks like she'll be inspired by Kara while they work together. Kara does sure have a knack for inspiring people to fight the good fight, and Nia Nal could be a fantastic addition to the series. The footage of her in the trailer is undoubtedly only a taste of what's to come.

Less of new villain Agent Liberty can be seen in the new trailer, which is a shame given that he's one of the most promising of the new Arrow-verse characters this fall. DC TV vet Sam Witwer is on board Supergirl to play the new baddie known as Agent Liberty. In the quick trailer shot, Agent Liberty can be seen with a bloody hole in his shirt, and possibly a bandage across his chest beneath the shirt. Agent Liberty was only heard via voiceover in the first Season 4 trailer, and his words gave the distinct impression that he'd be very effective in his quest to promote a humans-first way of life on Earth. He leads a hate group known as the Children of Liberty, but he hides his dark side under his appearance as a family man. Take a look:

Unsurprisingly, the trailer doesn't deliver any Winn, although there is a quick shot of his replacement in the background. Kara has a new suit for Season 4 with a mask and no skirt, although it's possible that somebody else is in the suit, pretending to be Supergirl. What isn't possible when Supergirl is flying around with her face uncovered and hair flying free can be possible with her face obscured. Could another person be doubling as Supergirl?

Superman is reportedly going to appear in an early episode of Season 4; if so, the show didn't spoil any of the circumstances by including him in the trailer. We do know that he'll return for the Arrow-verse crossover that introduces none other than Batwoman, and he'll be bringing somebody along with him. All things considered, there's a lot to look forward to with Supergirl's return to The CW. It should be interesting to see how it fares as part of the network's new Sunday night lineup on television this fall.
