Supergirl Promo Introduces New, Spider-Themed Supervillain

Supergirl finds herself in a tangled web of villainy in a new promo for next week's episode, titled "Blurred Lines," which pits the Girl of Steel against a new enemy with spider powers.

As the promo begins, a spider emerges from the villain's shoulder as she and a man passionately kiss. This is followed by James telling Kara they have a murder to solve. Later, as Kara examines the aforementioned man's corpse with her x-ray vision, she sees a tattoo of a spider that's somehow inside his heart.

As the promo continues, Supergirl and Guardian encounter the villain, who sends Guardian flying with a single punch and fires a web from her hand that sticks Supergirl to a wall, while text pops up that reads, "A villain that weaves a deadly web." The clip then ends with Supergirl and her unnamed enemy battling one another right before the series' title card appears.

Airing Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen and Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers.
