The CW announced Thursday that the show will be adding the character this season in a recurring role, though he will not appear in the network’s upcoming “Elseworlds” crossover between “Supergirl,” “Arrow” and “The Flash.” Casting will begin shortly for the role.
“We’re beyond excited to introduce iconic villain, Lex Luthor, to ‘Supergirl’ and to weave him into our story this season,” said executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. “We’ve talked about having Lex on the show since it’s inception and we’re excited to have him finally arrive. We can’t wait for him to shake things up in National City and watch him go toe to toe with not only Supergirl, but his sister Lena Luthor.”
