Titans: Supergirl’s Jon Cryer Would Reprise Lex Luthor Role In The Series

The previous night saw Jon Cryer’s final appearance as Lex Luthor, a role that he played since the last three years on Supergirl. Cryer, who has starred in Two and a Half Men was barely the safe choice for the role when he took over – after all, his very first role in DC was in Superman IV: The Quest for Peace as Lenny Luthor, a movie that isn’t really loved by DC fans. However, the audience seemed to have liked him though, and the end of Supergirl has all Arrowverse fans thinking that he turns up on Superman & Lois, or perhaps, somewhere else in the shared universe of DC TV that airs on The CW.

Jon Cryer Might Even Appear In Superman & Lois

As revealed by Cryer, he would be up for it, but he doesn’t just want to limit himself to Superman & Lois. The star also went on to praise DC TV’s efforts in general with their shared universe. He also told Comicbook.com that he would be up for a trip to Titans or The Flash if they come up with a fine story for Lex Luthor, and want him to play the role.

“I had been feeling like [this would be the end], but I also want to honor this version of the character,” Cryer said. “I like the Arrowverse. I think they do a great job with it. I think Superman & Lois is fantastic. I think Doom Patrol is fantastic, and Titans is pretty great. And Stargirl, I’ve only seen one episode, but it seems like fun. I thought Black Lightning was terrific. So I want to honor Lex in the Arrowverse verse. So if they’ve got a great arc for him on Superman & Lois, or The Flash, or Titans or whatever, I’m happy to find a way to come back and be a part of that.”

What happened To Lex In Supergirl Finale?

The series finale of Supergirl saw Lex’s love interest Nyxly and Lex and a powerful fifth-dimensional imp, thwarted in a definitive way, however, the character is not dead. This could be saying something in the context of the Arrowverser, where dead characters have shown again before through multiversal doppelgangers and the magic of time travel.

While it might take some creative writing to have Lex out of the pickle he’s in, it seems far from impossible.

The fact that Cryer also appeared in Crisis on Infinite Earths story, going on to wield the Book of Destiny and moving through space and time at will. This also opens up a lot of possibilities for stories to be told in the future.
