Warner Bros. Television presented the plates for its CW superhero dramas "Arrow", "Supergirl", "Legends of Tomorrow" and "The Flash" at Comic-Con.
New "Arrow" star Beth Schwartz added The show will be screened at Comic-Con and promises to hold the show in season seven.
"I've been on the show since season one," said Schwartz, who rose in the ranks from author to executive producer and showrunner. "It's been a long time, so it's not a completely different show, but I'll focus on it."
Colton Haynes returns to "Arrow" in his seventh season in his role as Roy Harper, praising Schwartz. "It's the best show ever on the show since the show started," he said.
Haynes also talked about the story of his role in this season.
"Good is Roy's coming back," Haynes said. "He is not the same person." He added, "Beth, it's a genius, and she wrote me a version of the character that is so special, it's going to be hard for me, but I'm so excited to do it."
During the podium for "Supergirl" the transgender actress Nicole Maines joined the cast and executive producers of the show on stage. Maines, who starred in HBO's The Trans List, will join the cast of the CW action drama in season four as "Nia Nal alias Dreamer." It is believed that the character is the first transgender superhero of television.
"It feels crazy, to be honest," Maines said of her casting Saturday. "I've just done a lot of auditions lately, because many shows were very eager to tell the stories of transgender people and especially transgender teens because it's such an important topic."
"Nicole auditioned for us, we were blown away," said executive producer Jessica Queller. She described Maines' character, who joins CatCo as the new reporter, adding, "She is so wide that she is glad to be there, she has this insane urge to protect people and defend herself against discrimination.
The Flash panel announces that star Danielle Panabaker will conduct an episode this season – making her the first female actress (19659002) "Frankly, I'm so excited," Panabaker said. "It's such a rarity to be in a series that has 100 episodes, so I'm just so thankful."
