WATCH: Supergirl teaser features Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor… and is Superman in the episode?

March 10th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Lex Luthor arrives on the small screen.

In next week’s episode of Supergirl, called O Brother, Where Art Thou? Three-and-a-half men star Jon Cryer makes his debut as Luthor and the trailer is below.

Now, two things.

Firstly, he looks pretty great in the role. Threatening and prepared to do whatever it takes to ruin Superman.


We don’t think Superman is in the episode, depsite the trailer focusing on him.

Tyler Hoechlin, who plays the Man of Steel in Supergirl, isn’t listed as appearing and all the clips in the trailer seem to be lifted form previous episodes.

We hope he IS in it – Lex and Superman belong opposite each other – but if he isn’t, it’s a bit underhanded to have him in the teaser so much.


Supergirl 4×15 “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” Season 4 Episode 15 Trailer


Secretly furloughed from prison due to failing health, Lex Luthor (guest star Jon Cryer) visits his sister, Lena (Katie McGrath), to seek her help finding a cure. Savvy as ever, Lena is suspicious of Lex’s motives but when she’s faced with a life and death situation, she must decide how she truly feels about her brother.

Meanwhile, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and J’onn (David Harewood) face off against Manchester Black (guest star David Ajala). James’ sister Kelly (guest star Azie Tesfai) comes to town.

Tawnia Mckiernan directed the episode written by Derek Simon & Nicki Holcomb (#415). Original airdate 3/17/2019.

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….
