Warner Bros. and The CW announced earlier this afternoon that Two and a Half Men’s Jon Cryer will be making his debut this season on Supergirl in the iconic role of Superman villain Lex Luthor.
Naturally, fans have a lot to say about Cryer joining the series, with reactions ranging all across the board. Cryer himself is no stranger to comic book properties or even the Luthor family as the actor previously played Lenny Luthor, Lex Luthor’s nephew in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace.
The series was confirmed to introduce Superman’s iconic arch-nemesis Lex Luthor in the fourth season as a recurring character earlier this year by executive producers Robert Rovner and Jessica Queller. You can check out the reaction from fans below!

Jon Cryer wouldn't be in my top 25 list to play Lex Luthor..or ever.
But it's pretty cool he got to work with Gene Hackman and Christopher Reeve . pic.twitter.com/7nNY2E9rn2

Everyone who thinks Jon Cryer is bad casting for Lex Luthor is wrong. And that's all I have to say about that.

I already like Jon Cryer more as Lex Luther than Jessie Eisenberg

I love the Superman IV connection in casting Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor. He'll do great in that role. pic.twitter.com/d3Q0waX1On

With Jon Cryer confirmed as Lex Luthor, how hard would it be to get him to look like Lenny? pic.twitter.com/erIUvjnb4F
