A casting call has been shared, looking for the new face of a familiar foe in the Super lore.
The CW has announced that they’re looking for the new face of Lex Luthor as he’s set to have a recurring role in the network’s Supergirl, as said by executive producers Robert L. Rovner and Jessica Queller said in a joint statement Thursday.
“We’re beyond excited to introduce iconic villain Lex Luthor to Supergirl and to weave him into our story this season. We’ve talked about having Lex on the show since its 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 (Katie McGrath).”
Lex Luthor will be joining Supergirl — now airing as part of The CW’s Sunday night scripted originals — as the show is bringing back their Superman (Tyler Hoechlin) as well as introducing Lois Lane (Elizabeth “Bitsie” Tulloch) for the annual Arrow-verse crossover. However, Lex will not be included in the annual event.
