Jon Cryer’s Lex Luthor Really Hates Superman In New Supergirl Promo

Supergirl Lex Luthor Jon Cryer Superman

Jon Cryer’s Lex Luthor steals the show in the latest Supergirl trailer and he’s definitely not a big fan of Superman.

The days are numbered for the arrival of Jon Cryer’s Lex Luthor and a new Supergirl trailer has given fans a sneak peek at what the nefarious villain’s presence will bring. Tyler Loechlin debuted as Superman in the show’s second season and now his most iconic villain is on his way.

The CW’s Supergirl has introduced many villains but Lex Luthor has yet to be one of them. Check out the latest trailer for the upcoming fifteenth episode of Supergirl season four below, which teases Jon Cryer’s highly-anticipated debut.

Jon Cryer’s Lex Luthor sends a subtle chill down the spine doesn’t he? The last time fans saw the character in live action was in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and then again in a small cameo in 2017’s Justice League.

Jon Cryer comes off as a Lex Luthor that has lost everything and blames Superman for his misfortune. Since defeating the Man of Steel is almost near impossible, Luthor looks to be willing to do almost anything to bring him down and nothing is more dangerous than a man with nothing to lose.

We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Supergirl as soon as more information becomes available. Jon Cryer will join the series in episode fifteen of season four, titled “O Brother, Where Art Though?”. The CW has officially released the first synopsis for the highly-anticipated episode, which will debut on March 17th. Check out the new details about Lex Luthor’s arrival below.


Secretly furloughed from prison due to failing health, Lex Luthor (guest star Jon Cryer) visits his sister, Lena (Katie McGrath), to seek her help finding a cure. Savvy as ever, Lena is suspicious of Lex’s motives but when she’s faced with a life and death situation, she must decide how she truly feels about her brother.

Meanwhile, Supergirl (Melissa Benoist) and J’onn (David Harewood) face off against Manchester Black (guest star David Ajala). James’ sister Kelly (guest star Azie Tesfai) comes to town.”

Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’

Previous1 of 7Next

Batman Ben Affleck Matt ReevesBen Affleck is officially out as Batman and it's a pretty sad day.

Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he's no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.

Three years have quickly sped by and we're officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves' The Batman and now everyone's attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that's around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.

In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.

Michael Fassbender

Michael Fassbender X-Men

Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.

Ben Barnes

The Punisher Ben Barnes Billy Russo Jigsaw Marvel

Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.

Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling Blade Runner 2049

I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.

Jon Hamm

Jon Hamm Mad Men

Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.

Armie Hammer

Armie Hammer The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.

Richard Madden

Richard Madden Bodyguard

Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
