    Since most of the talk in the season 4 thread is now about season 5, and there's bound to be more news and even maybe a short teaser trailer for the upcoming season at today's SDCC panel I'd say it's time for a new thread.

    To recap the news from the last few days: there's a new suit, Winn will be back for a few episodes, James will be leaving in the first half of the season, and Eve and Kelly are promoted to season regulars.

    (Did I miss anyhting?)

    ^^As soon as Lena said, "Kara..." who else thinks Supergirl thought to herself, "Alex was right. These bangs were a dead giveaway." :whistle:

    ETA: SDCC 2019

    I do love that Supergirl gave Lex a power suit. (I know it's been seen before)

    Her new costume looks fantastic!

    It's an okay variant, but the original was one of the most perfect superhero costumes I've ever seen in live action. I don't like it that they're adopting the weird cape-buckle shoulder things from Earth-38 Superman's costume.

    Me neither, and the high boots and her hair looks bad, but for the rest it looks great

    The hair looks okay, and the boots don't look very different from the previous version.

    I never liked the boots and hoped they would shorter them, not that it's that big a deal

    One of the reasons given was because Vancouver can get really freakin cold when shooting.

    It could do with a bit more colour, but it looks a lot better there than it did in first picture we go.

    Not a fan of the drab suit; her original costume was superior to this, but I do like the new, more mature hair style. Hopefully, it mirrors the character's journey in the season.

    I have to say that it's disappointing that the writers are apparently turning Lena into "just another Luthor" for the most shallow of reasons.

    ^ Nah, they've described the situation as a "battle for Lena's soul." It's a battle Supergirl will eventually win. I don't think they're going to turn her full-on villain.

    Watch the Season Trailer; she's already fully at odds with Kara, at least based on what we were shown, in the very first episode (since that is the only episode they have filmed thus far), which is disappointing to me.

    ^ I've watched it. That's why it's a "battle." Lena will go to a darker and more antagonistic place for a while, but she's not going to become Lex, and she'll eventually be brought back into the fold. Just my prediction. I think they've invested too much time and care into the character, and worked too hard to establish her dynamic with Kara, to throw it all away.

    And that's what's disappointing to me.

    Okey-doke. Me, I think they can get some interesting character play out if it. And I laughed out loud when she slugged Kara in the face in the trailer.
