Jon Cryer was officially released as Lex Luthor Supergirl. The news follows the announcement last month of programmers Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner that Lex would be presenting in the meat during the fourth season of the program.
Lex released a long shadow Supergirl Since season 2, when her sister Lena (Katie McGrath) has become a recurring player in the series. Although Lena is as brilliant as her brother, she tried to leave the criminal legacy of the Luthor family behind, re-editing her company (Luther Corp) as L-Corp and lending Supergirl in a friendly way, after Lex was arrested and sent to prison They serve no less than 32 life sentences in a row. However, this was easier said than done, between the mother of Lena Lillian (Brenda Strong) who led the Cadmus antialchism project in recent times and Lex, potentially, causing problems in the everyday world from the rear.

Lex will eventually appear in the flesh Supergirl season 4, episode 15, according to a new report from TVLine. Queller and Rovner have confirmed that Cryer will give life to the character and will issue the following statement along with the announcement:
"We are huge fans of Jon Cryer, and it was instantly our dream actor to play the iconic role of Lex Luthor. Jon is a super talent, and the fact that he played Lenny Luthor in Superman IV brings an additional layer of legacy to his Casting. We're pleased to welcome Jon to the Supergirl family. "
Nowadays, Cryer is best known for his role as Alan Harper in all twelve seasons of the popular CBS comedy Two and a half men. He will be the first actor to portray Luthor in live action on the small screen since Michael Rosebaum brought the devilish brain to mind Smallville Back in the 2000s, as well as the first live action Lex Luthor since Jesse Eisenberg briefly repressed his Batman V Superman paper as Mr. Luthor during League of Justiceafter last year. There was a boost of fans Smallville veteran Tom Welling to play Lex Supergirl Recently, but the creativity of the Arrowverse series ended with a very different selection from Superman's legacy casting.
As for the role of Lex in the program: some fans speculated that Lex manipulated the events Supergirl Since the series began and perhaps he has taken steps to land in prison, so he could continue taking the ropes in groups such as Cadmus without Superman or Supergirl knowing or being able to stop it. It is certainly not outside the realm of possibility that Lex be responsible for the current increase of anti-alien sentiment through the United States in Supergirl season 4; or, failing that, you may have incubated a plan to use the growing chaos in your favor. In any case, it seems that it is about to make Lena's life and Kara Danvers much more complicated.
