The ‘Two and a Half Men’ actor, Jon Cryer, will portray Superman’s arch-nemesis, Lex Luthor, on The CW’s Supergirl show in the latter half of the current season. It wasannounced back in October that Lex Luthor would make an appearance, with the casting being confirmed in November.
Now we finally have our first look at one of Comic books most well known villains.
The role will be recurring and he will make his debut in the latter half of the season, in 2019.
“We’re beyond excited to introduce iconic villain, Lex Luthor, to Supergirl and to weave him into our story this season,” stated executive Producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller back when the casting announcement was made. “We’ve talked about having Lex on the show since its inception and we’re excited to have him finally arrive. We can’t wait for him to shake things up in National City and watch him go toe to toe with not only Supergirl, but his sister Lena Luthor.”
Supergirl stars Melissa Benoist as Kara Danvers/Supergirl, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, Mehcad Brooks as Jimmy Olsen, David Harewood as Martian Manhunter, Katie McGrath as Lena Luthor and Jesse Rath as Brainiac 5.
