Today, The CW shared our first image of Azie Tesfai as National City’s newest Guardian. Tesfai plays Kelly Olsen on the show, and Guardian, of course, was a mantle first taken up by her brother, James. And it turns out Tesfai looks every bit the hero as her super-minded sibling.
Tesfai will make her Guardian debut in this season’s 12th episode, which is entitled “Blind Spots” and will air on September 21, 2021. Along with playing a prominent role in the episode, Tesfai also co-wrote it along with co-producer J. Holtham, and will be taking on themes of racial inequality within it.
The episode was directed by someone who will be greatly familiar to “Arrow” fans — David Ramsey, who will also make an appearance as John Diggle.
“Supergirl’s” mid-season finale airs next Tuesday, May 11, before the series goes on hiatus for a few months, returning later this summer on Aug. 24 for what will be the series’ final run of episodes.
