We’ve seen the President on Supergirl before – President Marsdin is played by OG Wonder Woman Linda Carter. Now we will see her Vice President in the form of Star Trek: The Next Generation‘s Brent Spiner.
The intriguing part is the description that comes with his character, Vice President Baker though. Says TVLine:
Described as “adept and politically minded,” Baker proves himself to be an “unlikely leader [who] steps up in a big way when his country needs him most.”
That last part stuck out, because it sounds like the President will be incapacitated in some way. Whether she was kidnapped, sick, or something worse, it sounds like the Vice President will have something huge to contribute to the season. Spiner will be a recurring role throughout the season.
This comes after the news out of San Diego Comic Con, where they announced that the first transgender superhero called Nia Nal/Dreamer will be a series regular, played by Nicole Maines. The season’s “big bad” will be Agent Liberty, played by Star Wars: Clone Wars star Sam Witwer. Witwer will also be a series regular. Both Maines and Witwer will fill the spots left by departing cast members Jeremy Jordan and Chris Wood.

Season three saw Supergirl stop Reign and the other Worldkillers’ threat to humanity and our planet, and in the process, Kara was shocked to find her mother Alura alive and living in a salvaged Argo City that survived the destruction of Krypton. Reconnecting with her past caused Kara to realize that her true home is now here on Earth, where big changes are taking place for her and all of her friends in National City – and also, it appears, for a doppelganger in Russia! Season four promises to be full of surprises, action, adventure and lots of big revelations for Supergirl, Alex, James, J’onn, Lena and Brainy.
