Supergirl's POTUS might need to tap into Lynda Carter's Wonder Woman past sooner rather than later. The leader of the free world is under fire, and we're taking that term literally, folks.
Lynda Carter will take on the role of President during Supergirl's second season, and the actress was spotted filming at Vancouver's Queen Elizabeth Park on Thursday. Bystanders caught a glimpse of the character as she hopped behind a podium, presumably heading up some form of rally.
The star-spangled event didn't last long, however. An explosion quickly scattered the crowd, of which Alex (Chyler Leigh) was a member. YRVShoots was on hand to snap a few pics, which you can check out here. Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) will clearly swoop in to save the day, and Benoist celebrated her first day with Carter on Instagram.

It's unclear exactly how the President will become entangled with the National City crew, but the Supergirl powers that be are particularly excited about the new character.
"My personal hope is that it's a good foretelling of things to come with our own presidency," executive producer Sarah Schechter told /Film at San Diego Comic-Con. "Lynda Carter is amazing and her role as Wonder Woman was, for a long time, the only female hero that a generation of people had to look to. We want to honor that even as we expand the idea of what a female superhero can be. I think there's going to be some very surprising turns. I think people are going to be really excited. She has some fun stuff to do."
Meanwhile, check out the summary below to find out what we do know about the heroine's sophomore run.
"Now, in season 2, Kara has left the safety of being Cat Grant's assistant in order to figure out what she really wants to do, while as Supergirl she continues to work at the DEO, protecting the citizens of National City and searching for Jeremiah and Cadmus," The CW teased. "Along the way, she will team up with Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) to battle new villains, as she strives to balance her personal life with her life as a superhero."
