Luthor has previously been mentioned on the show - a young Lex Luthor appeared in Supergirl's second season, and the modern, adult character is said to be incarnerated with 32 consecutive life sentences after being caught by Superman. That's about to change. The CW announced Thursday that the show's now airing fourth season will soon introduce the most iconic nemesis in the entire Superman family: Lex Luthor, the megalomaniacal genius, businessman, and occasional world leader who's been battling the Man of Steel and his allies for decades. It will be a recurring role, and casting is expected to begin soon.

In a joint statement, Supergirl EPs Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller said, "We're beyond excited to introduce... We can't wait for him to shake things up in National City and watch him go toe to toe with not only Supergirl (Melissa Benoist), but his sister Lena Luthor (Katie McGrath)".

EW has learned that the CW superhero drama will finally introduce Superman's iconic archnemesis Lex Luthor in season 4.

This is enough to make Kara's hair stand on end: Lex Luthor is bringing his one-man creep show to National City!

Speaking of Rosenbaum, the Smallville alum recently maintained on his podcast (with guest Stephen Amell) that he "couldn't" play Lex Luthor on a full-time basis now because he's older and the intense schedule would prove untenable. She's Lex and Lena's mother, though she's not Lena's biological mother, and she ran the wicked Project Cadmus alien experimentation program before being defeated by Kara and her friends.

It remains to be seen what exactly Lex will get up to on Supergirl, but presumably he'll be coming home to reclaim his company from his sister, which will lead to big-time conflict. He will not be part of the Arrowverse crossover though and will just be sticking to Supergirl for now.
