First Look: Jon Cryer Is Lex Luthor In “Supergirl”

First Look Jon Cryer Is Lex Luthor In Supergirl

The CW has released the first official look at Emmy winner Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor in the currently airing fourth season of “Supergirl”.

Superman’s mortal enemy is scheduled to arrive at National City in this season’s fifteenth episode which should air sometime in March. The series returned from a mid-season hiatus on January 20th.

Though he played the nephew of Lex Luthor (Gene Hackman) in the fourth “Superman” film, Cryer’s casting remains a bit of an unexpected one as the actor is around seventeen years older than his on-screen sister Lena (Katie McGrath) and only five years younger than his onscreen mother Dr. Lillian Luthor (Brenda Strong).
