It has been referenced several times throughout Supergirl that the President is a woman.

I'm wondering who is the President of the US is, and whether there's a particular reason for this aspect being different from Earth-1 (if you consider Barry Allen's Flash on The Flash as Earth-1)?

Who is she and is there any indication that she'll play a more important role in later episodes?


Jokingly, the film's showrunners indicated in an interview that Lynda Carter (of 1975 "Wonder Woman" fame) will be the President of the USA in the Supergirl-verse

“We had the perfect role for Lynda Carter,” Berlanti said of the Wonder Woman alum. “We couldn’t work out her schedule. Next year.”

Interjected Kreisberg: “We’re going to do it, we’ll just do it next year,” which prompted Berlanti to reveal her potential role: “All right, she’s the female president of the United States.”

They refused to be drawn on whether she'll simply be cameoing or reprising her role as Wonder Woman.
