CW DCTV SDCC 2018 News

Here are the announcements from today's DCTV panels at San Diego Comic Con. This post will be updated as the panels continue.
  • Supergirl season 4 will focus more on Kara's career as a journalist
  • Brainy will "butt heads" with some people, including Alex
  • Three new characters will join Supergirl
    • Nia Nal (Nicole Maines) is the newest addition to the CatCo reporting team. A soulful young transgender woman with a fierce drive to protect others, Nia’s journey this season means fulfilling her destiny as the superhero Dreamer (much like Kara came into her own as Supergirl).
    • Hardline career military woman Colonel Haley (April Parker Jones) lives and dies by the orders of her commanding officers. Dedicated to her country, she always acts in its best interest — even if it’s not her own.
    • Based on the iconic DC character, Manchester Black (David Ajala) is the type of guy who brings a knife to a gunfight and still walks away the winner. With a dark past, he easily deflects the brutality of his mission with his charm and sense of humor.
  • Lynda Carter will return as President Olivia Marsdin
  • There's nothing heroic about Oliver in season 7 
  • Oliver will face some old bad guys during his time in prison, including Ben Turner, Derek Sampson, and Danny Brickwell
  • The Longbow Hunters will show up this season after being recruited by Ricardo Diaz, they are
    • Red Dart (Holly Elissa – Whistler), a ruthless and precise killer
    • Kodiak (Michael Jonsson – Van Helsing), a beast of a man with brute force
    • Silencer (Miranda Edwards – The Magicians, Orphan Black), a master of stealth
  • The Legends will visit Woodstock
  • Two new characters are joining Legends of Tomorrow
    • Ramona Young (Blockers, Santa Clarita Diet) joins the cast in the series regular role of Mona Yu. A typical twentysomething easily swept up by romantic notions and fantasy novels, she’s something of an expert in the world of the magical creatures that the Legends encounter in season four. In the company of the Legends, she soon learns to get her head out of the clouds to become a kickass superhero. 
    • Tom Wilson (The Informant, Back to the Future, The Mayor) will recur as Nate’s (Nick Zano) father, Hank Heywood. With a lifetime in the military and Dept. of Defense, Hank is part of a long line of Heywoods to serve the country. Charming and charismatic, he’s left big shoes for Nate to fill — and it doesn’t help that Nate can’t tell him he’s secretly a Legend!
  • Beebo's back 
  • Maisie Richardson-Sellers will be playing a different character from before, a magical trickster named Charlie
  • Chris Klein will play main villain Cicada on The Flash
  • Nora is clingy with Barry and distant with Iris
