J’onn J’onzz is the one who recruited me, promoted me, and taught me everything that I know. He’s my family. And he is the best director this organization has ever seen.
“I felt like we should’ve been eating apple pie and waving American flags. It was such Americana, and there were pickup trucks and Lois Lane had a toolbox and was working on a car. […] That iconic relationship of Lois and Clark, [Tyler and Elizabeth] have just totally embraced it,” says Melissa Benoist (Kara).
Benoist promises that fans won’t be disappointed by Tulloch’s portrayal of Lois. “She is such a force to be reckoned with, and Elizabeth is perfect for it…. The way they’ve written her in this world, she’s a firebolt and really sassy and awesome. I think people will really respond to her.”
“When we were talking about the story we wanted to send Clark on in the crossover, we were talking about different elements and that’s when we started talking about Lois,” according to Supergirl co-showrunner Robert Rovner. “We’ve always wanted to bring Lois onto the show. She’s such a great character and we were just excited to be able to have her and she organically fits into the story we were telling in the crossover.”
Superman’s place in the story is directly related to Supergirl‘s eighth episode of the season. “Kara is coming out of the midseason finale at a crossroads, and the journey that she’s on is kind of helped by Clark, who is returning from Argo kind of on his own journey,” says Rovner, adding that the Supergirl writers pitched using the Smallville farm because “it kind of seemed like the organic place for them to meet” given where the Kryptonians’ heads are at when the crossover begins.
“We are enormous fans of Jon Cryer, and he was instantly our dream actor to play the iconic role of Lex Luthor. Jon is a super-talent, and the fact that he played Lenny Luthor in Superman IV brings an added layer of legacy to his casting. We’re beyond thrilled to welcome Jon to the Supergirl family,” Executive Producers Jessica Queller and Robert Rovner said in a statement.
A star of many well-loved movies of decades past, Jon Cryer is known best to modern audiences for his role in the long-running CBS series Two and a Half Men.
“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 it’s 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 (Katie McGrath),” the producers said.
“I absolutely have no idea the parameters of how he’s going to come into the world,” Melissa Benoist told us earlier this week when we asked her about Lex coming to the show. “But I’m so excited that he is. I think most of his story, I would guess, would be with Lena. But of course he’s going to interact with Supergirl too. It would only be fitting. I can’t say who it … no. It’s really cool. It’s a very cool person who I think they’ve got to play him,” she teased.
Cryer’s role is set to be recurring and he will first appear in the 15th episode of the season, which will air in 2019.
