Supergirl star hints that Lex Luthor won’t be defeated after all as bosses forced to rewrite season 5 finale – The Sun

SUPERGIRL super-villian Lex Luthor might not have met his match after all, in a thrilling plot twist teased by actor Jon Cryer.

The star has let slip key detail of the final episode of the current series, which has had to be re-written due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

The airborne virus, which has killed millions across the world, ironically could have proved the saviour for Superman's arch nemesis.

Originally, Jon's gritty character was due to be defeated in the final episode of season five – yet a huge U-turn is in store.

Join told publication Couch Surfing: “The Supergirl folks have talked to me because we couldn't shoot our last episode.

"We had shot some of the last episode, and they're gonna use some of that footage, but they're writing a whole bunch of new stuff around it.

“Which is interesting because the way my character was thwarted now doesn't happen anymore.

"So I was like, 'Oh, did I not get defeated? Wait a minute, I like this!'”

Adding yet more fuel to speculation his role will survive, he added: "Supervillains, we relish our chance to actually not be defeated every now and then."

The show is based on the DC Comics character Supergirl, who is Superman’s cousin and one of the last surviving residents of Krypton.

It is set in the same universe as other popular characters such as The Flash and Arrow.

Meanwhile Supergirl protagonist actress Melissa Benoist, 31, started the year with some very happy news of her own.

The star, who was previously a victim of domestic abuse, has now revealed she is expecting her first child with husband Chris Wood.

Melissa wrote alongside photos of the couple with their dogs: “A non-canine child is coming to our family very soon!!! @christophrwood has always been an old dad by nature but now he’s going to be a real one.”
