Well, first we got Superman in Supergirl (sounds a bit rude – here) and now the Luthor family is there too…

Yes, it’s been confirmed that Irish (yay!) actress Katie McGrath – of Merlin and Jurassic World fame – will play Lena Luthor, younger sister to Lex Luthor.

In the continuity of The CW DC TV Universe Lex is in prison – and no, we doubt it’s tied to the universe of Batman V Superman – and Lena is running Luthor Corp: Beautiful, powerful, and enigmatic, Lena arrives in National City on the heels of brother Lex’s incarceration hoping for a fresh start. Lena has taken over as  CEO of her family’s billion-dollar-tech company, Luthor Corp, which has been tarnished by Lex’s evil infamy. Her goal? To re-brand the empire as a force for good. Lena wants to be seen as her own person, separate from her brother. Kara is drawn into Lena’s sphere and must determine if she is friend or foe.

The Supergirl Universe is growing considerably this season with Superman, Metropolis and more… here’s some of the best images culled from sharp-eyed fans and posted on Twiiter, including a Metropolis Police Car and Fire Engine as well as Tyler Hoechlin doing the iconic opening of the shirt to reveal the Man of Steel’s suit beneath.

Check them out below and, as always, share your thoughts…

Supergirl Season 2 returns on October 10th.

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….
