The CW has announced that Lex Luthor will make an appearance in the current season of “Supergirl”.
Executive Producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller said, “We’re beyond excited to introduce iconic villain, Lex Luthor, to Supergirl and to weave him into our story this season. 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.”
Lex Luthor will not be appearing in the “Elseworlds” crossover event which will introduce Lois Lane for the first time on The CW.
Currently in prison, Lex has been mentioned many times on “Supergirl”, and his eventual appearance will no doubt cause plenty of trouble for both Supergirl and his adopted sister Lena.
The role will be a recurring one, with casting to begin soon.
