One of the most disheartening points for me in the recent wave of high-profile suspensions and firings of male Hollywood executives and creatives was learning that Andrew Kreisberg, co-creator and Executive Producer on multiple DCTV shows on The CW, including Supergirl, was suspended after a long history of sexually inappropriate behavior.

While Berlanti isn't naming names, he did confirm that there will be a character currently on one of the series--not someone joining the show as a new cast member--who will come out as gay this season.

And now we have our Veronica!
