Look out Supergirl — Lex Luthor is finally on his way to National City. Supergirl producers confirmed Thursday that the iconic villain will make his first appearance on The CW
series in its fourth season, which got underway last weekend as the show moved to its new Sunday night 8/7pm time slot.
“We’re beyond excited to introduce iconic villain, Lex Luthor, to Supergirl and to weave him into our story this season,” executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller
said in a joint statement.
Who will portray the evil genius who has more on-screen history than any other DC Comics
villain? Time will tell. Casting will “begin shortly,” according to The CW and Warner Bros. TV.
Luthor has been a major presence — in name and through influence — since the Supergirl
series first took flight October 2015. The menace from Metropolis
casts a long shadow even if he’s yet to meet the local Kryptonian.
