Lots happening at Television Critics Association Summer Tour on Monday morning. During the Supergirl panel, Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed that there will be a bunch of characters appearing in the first nine episodes of the first season of Supergirl.

First, previously announced Lucy Lane, being played by Jenna Dewan Tatum, will be showing up in the series. However, her father, General Sam Lane, will also be showing up and he has quite the agenda coming onto the show. In addition, Livewire would be making her way into the show as well, most likely as another villain for Kara to square-off against. Finally, Red Tornado will also be making his way into the series as well, but no news yet on casting or what role he will play.

There was also mention of whether or not Superman will be showing up on the series. DC Comics Exec Geoff Johns spoke about that.

"He will be a factor in her life but you won't see him exactly on screen; he'll be in the background but he does play a part in her evolution."
