A new addition is heading for Riverdale in season 2: Betty Cooper’s long-lost brother Chic Cooper.
TVLine reports that The CW show is currently casting for the role of Betty’s brother. Fans will recall that at the end of season 1, Betty learned that her mother had gotten pregnant in high school and gave the child up for adoption. It is expected that we will finally be introduced to this long-lost sibling around the midpoint of season 2.
Chic Cooper will be a recurring guest role on the show. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood as we learn more about the casting process!

6 Superheroes Who Deserve Animated Shows
One of the greatest tools in the craft of filmmaking is the often overlooked art of animation. Animation is a tool that can bring any drawable creation to life in vibrant ways without the limitations of a budget or having to find a way to pull something off in real life. Animation can be as far out and unhinged as it wants to be.
The art of the comic book is very similar to that of animation. Comics often show heroes doing things that could never happen in the real world. As much as live action can capture a lot of these moments, animation allows for much more freedom. Animated superhero shows have been popular for quite some time now, and some have even received critical acclaim for their depiction of comic book characters and honoring the source material.
With all this in mind, I decided to write about 6 heroes who deserve their own animated shows. Click Next to get started!
