While Lex Luthor's sister and mother have appeared frequently in the Supergirl TV show, he himself has yet to physically appear on the show. This is because the character is still in prison thanks to Superman.

Well now it has been announced by DC Comics that Lex Luthor himself will be in the Supergirl TV show later this season as a recurring character.

It's possible his character is released from prison and he may want to go back to his evil ways.

The CW has yet to cast an actor for the role, but fans are hoping that Smallville's Michael Rosenbaum is called back.

After all, his rendition of Lex Luthor is arguably the best one of all time. He's far better at playing the character than Jesse Eisenberg was in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.

Executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller released an official statement about Lex Luthor. You can read their comments posted down below.

"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".

Lex Luthor will not be appearing in the "Elseworlds" crossover special, but he should be appearing on the show later on in the season. Hopefully The CW chooses an actor that fits the role perfectly.
