FIrst Look at Lex Luthor

Ever since Superman was created and defined what a "Superhero" was, there has been his antithesis, Lex Luthor. He is possibly the most well known villain in comic book history! We know he is coming to Supergirl and will be played by Jon Cryer, but now we get to see him in the flesh! On top of that we know now when he'll be debuting and the episode title that he'll debut in! Look to see Lex on episode 415 titled, "O' Brother, Where Art Thou" which will air March 17th, 2019. Check out the man himself below:

If you get the reference, you grew up watching WWE.

Or Celebrity Deathmatch!

Is the reason Lex Luther is coming to Supergirl S4 because of the Red Daughter storyline? Does this mirror the comics with the Red Superman?

Jon looks good. Certainly a lot of expectations for his performance but I'm sure he'll be great.

Quoting Alex:
Just one opinion but I’m not that excited about his character being added.


My reservations about Lex Luthor coming onto the show is he's the sort of character who can dominate proceedings, just be another character that could take focus off Kara/Supergirl. I'd be happy if his was just a prison story-line and only take up maximum 8 minutes (20%) of each episode.

Looks like he's captured the attitude! But that really should be a double or triple door. Looking forward to seeing him interacting with Lena, should be electric.

He's got the scheming and up to no good look on his face which is good for the show. I wonder if the title has anything to do with the lovely Lena. Looking forward to that interaction. Now all we need is the crazy mother to join in.

Quoting RobertAnthony:
Cryer sure has the look down, though I have seen Luthor totally clean shaven...no mustache like of course Gene Hackman in that last scene in Superman I and Lyle Talbot in the Columbia serial Atom Man Vs. Superman...and in various cartoon roles

I did like John Shea's portrayal on Lois and Clark...a bit of charisma and charm...and of course Michael Rosenbaum on Smallville who should've gotten the role in my opinion.

But...what role if any does Luthor have in this season and this storyline though politcally charged it may be?

And by the way...3/17...happens to be St. Patrick's Day. But I don't expect any pre-emptions. Besides I think NYC might hold its parade the next day. But growing up as I have near NYC, Supergirl's affiliate WPIX 11 back in the day used to air the famed parade with their kids host "Captain" Jack McCarthy hosting and the station airing the film "The Quiet Man" with John Wayne and Maureen O'Hara...ah memories. I was in college at UCONN in 1996 when Captain Jack sailed off into eternity if you will.


Jack McCarthy would be adorned with Kelly Green. I remember him and Chuck McCann when they would air the 3 Stooges every afternoon after school. Christ! I'm glad those days are over. lol
