Supergirl Battles Lena Luthor in First Season 5 Trailer

The first look at the fifth season of The CW's Supergirl was unveiled Saturday at Comic-Con International in San Diego.

"One of our big bads this season is Leviathan, so we're bringing that into our canon this year... This season is going to be about how technology effects us," executive producer Robert Rovner explained. "We'll be seeing how our villains this season use technology against us and how our heroes bring us back."
