FIRST LOOK: Jon Cryer brings the menacing as Supergirl’s Lex Luthor

January 25th, 2019 by Marc Comments

We found out in November (here) that the unlikely choice of Two And A Half Men’s Jon Cryer had been cast as Supergirl’s Lex Luthor…

And, while we haven’t seen him in action, the first look image above certainly makes him look menacing.

In the Supergirl universeLex has been in a maximum security prison ( as seen above) since the series began, but now Lex is prepared to get out an cause Melissa Benoist’s Supergirl all sorts of hassle… it has to be her as we learned Superman and Lois Lane have left earth to start a family.

Cryer will debut on St Patrick’s Day, March 17th in an episode called O’ Brother Where Art Thou.

The show itself has been a marked improvement this season with Sam Witwer’s awesome turn as the villainous Agent Liberty, so hopefully the show can maintain its current trajectory with the new cast addition.

In the episode “Lex Luthor reaches out from prison to enlist Lena (Katie McGrath) into one of his plans and will stop at nothing to get her on board, even if that means leveraging the life of one of her friends.”

We’ll always be excited when a big comic character makes his or her debut… and they don’t come much bigger than Lex.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
