Earlier today we learned that the next trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will make its debut at the upcoming Star Wars Celebration in California.

Turns out, you’ll get your chance much sooner than you realize.

Super, if not-particularly surprising news, everyone! CBS forthcoming Supergirl series has followed The Flash’s lead in returning past franchise stars to the new edition, recruiting Lois & Clark star Dean Cain and original cinematic Supergirl Helen Slater for “top-secret” roles. Might the former Superman and Supergirl’s characters be so easy to identify in CBS’ rendition, however?
