According to, actor Thomas Lennon has been cast in the role of Mr. Mxyzptlk for Season 5 of the “Supergirl” TV series.

Fans may recall that back in Season 2 Peter Gadiot played the role of the magical imp from the 5th Dimension who attempted to win the affections of Kara Danvers in the episodes titled “Luthors” and “Mr. & Mrs. Mxyzptlk”. Now, in Season 5, Mxy will be back… with a different face.

Um why? Excuse me for not really caring about this right now. I’m still processing my thoughts about tonight’s episode.

Sorry Superman Homepage if my previous comments were negative. I’m still trying to process what happened on last night’s crossover. I’m sorry

Yeah, I’m sure that he’s a great actor and all but I’m just not feeling this news right now.

I’d say he’s a reasonably good pick. You kinda need someone with comedic chops to be Mxy.

After taking some time to think about what had happened earlier this month on the crossover and move past it, I can now share my thoughts on this casting. I have seen him in some other roles and I can definitely see him as Mr.Mxyzptlk. He does have that humorous quality about him to fit the part.
