Supergirl season 4 trailer reveals first look at Nicole Maines' Dreamer — TV’s first transgender superhero

The CW has released its first promotional trailer for season four of Supergirl and it provides us our first glimpse of TV’s first transgender superhero — The Dreamer.

The upcoming season will chronicle how Nia Nal (played by Nicole Maines), with help and guidance from Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist), turns from a young reporter at CatCo into the superhero we know as Dreamer.

“Fear. No matter how much we believe in ourselves, that never really goes away," Kara tells Nia in the trailer. "I think I’m not afraid of anything and then something chases me back down the rabbit hole. But once we catch ourselves, we have to jump right back out there.”
