Lex Luthor’s name has often been mentioned in the first few seasons of Supergirl, but Superman’s arch-nemesis has never been seen on The CW’s hit super-series…until now. Kara will officially come face-to-face with her cousin’s most famous foe this season — although he won’t be appearing in the highly-anticipated “Elseworlds” crossover event.
A little bit of a good news / eyebrow-raising news situation here, as Warner Bros. and DC Films are reportedly plotting a Supergirl movie (yay!) from the writer of The Cloverfield Paradox (hmm…). It’s still early days, however, and given the number of writers typically involved in your average blockbuster, it seems likely that this iteration of the script will be one of many.
Black Lightning got fan hopes up when it started namedropping Supergirl and Arrow characters, but don’t expect Jefferson Pierce or his daughters to fight aliens just yet. Producers are walking back the potential for crossover with other CW shows, save one notable caveat.
It’s getting to be that time of year, and The CW is going all-in with its formal renewals. Good news has arrived for fans of Black Lightning, Arrow, Flash, Riverdale, Supernatural and more, but who got left in the post-apocalyptic cold?
