SDCC Superhero Saturday: Wynonna Earp Renewed for Season 4, Supergirl casts first Transgender Superhero and more!

If you’ve been on our Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, then you probably saw that there was A LOT going on today with Superhero Saturday at San Diego Comic Con. I have the low down with all of the big news, but we’ll start with the two panels in the title.

Wynonna Earp

HUGE news came at the end of the day from Room 6DE. The panel opened with a montage video paying tribute to its fans: The Earpers. It didn’t stop there. We got an announcement that in 2019, Funko is releasing their line of pop vinyl figures. The video kept playing and SEASON 4 WAS ANNOUNCED! You can watch the video below and read the release from SYFY here

 

 

 

 

 

 

A special thanks to Patricia Ogura for taking over our Instagram Feed for the day and who captured this amazing moment for us all.

Supergirl

Ok. You all know I LOVE Supergirl, despite the fact it went off the rails a bit last season, but next season is going to be AMAZING! Check out the trailer below:

Not only did the trailer drop, but we got some pretty special casting news. We shared a tweet at the end of the season for an open casting call for transgender actors to play the role of Nia Nal. During the panel today, a special guest turned up. None other than Nicole Maines who has been cast in the role! We cannot wait to see what you get up to as TV’s first Transgender Superhero as Dreamer! You can read the full release here from The Hollywood Reporter.


Welcome to the Super Friends, Nicole!
