‘Supergirl‘ is really upping the ante in the upcoming fourth season! After The Elseworlds crossover introduces the world to Lois Lane, we’re going to also get an inclusion of Lex Luther on The CW. Luthor appears after the crossover episodes, so there is no mention if we’ll see him going toe to toe with the Man of Steel and Lois or just Supergirl and his sister.
I’m betting that he isn’t going to be one that deals with sibling rivalry too well when they bring this iteration to the small screen.
According to Executive Producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller:
“We’re beyond excited to introduce… Lex Luthor to Supergirl and to weave him into our story this season. 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.”
We know from previous conversations that Lex is now the ex-CEO of Luthor Corp and has been incarcerated for various crimes and was once close friends with Superman. At this time it isn’t clear how Lex will go free but if he is going “toe to toe with not only Supergirl but his sister Lena Luthor” you can expect that he’ll be on the loose and likely trying to regain control of his company. Having to serve multiple life sentences it almost feels like the character may have escaped instead of having been set free. On the flip side, there is a strong anti-alien influence being felt through the country in ‘Supergirl’ and this might lead to a pardoning of his crimes.
