DC revealed that the Supergirl series’ showrunners are looking to cast a transgender character for the upcoming season in what looks to be a major role.
The character Nia Nal is said to be a transgender woman in her early 20’s and is being cast with open ethnicity, meaning that they do not have a specific ethnic background in mind. She may be positioned to take over the newsroom, as she comes in with a strong journalism background and is described as a young Cat Grant type.
With the addition of Nia, who looks to be playing a large role in CatCo, it can be assumed that Kara will return her focus to her journalism career in the fourth season.
The synopsis of Catwoman #2, which will be going on shelves on 1 August, is as follows:
Gotham’s a toxic litter box for Selina Kyle of late, so she hits the road looking to clear the air, change her look and clear her name, too—there’s a copycat burglar swiping her M.O. who needs sorting out. In her hometown, Catwoman runs afoul of a crime boss who’s also hunting this impostor. Can the two declare a truce to hunt a mutual enemy, or will Selina end up just more roadkill?
