MERLIN Star Katie McGrath To Play Lena Luthor In SUPERGIRL Season 2; New Details On Lex Revealed

While Superman is currently kicking butt in Metropolis, the cast of Supergirl season two continues to grow! The latest addition is Katie McGrath as Lex Luthor's sister, so hit the jump for further details.

TV Line has revealed that Merlin and Dracula star Katie McGrath will play Lena Luthor in the upcoming second season of Supergirl. Lex Luthor's younger sister will have a recurring role in the series, and a detailed character description sheds some light on both Lena and what's going on with her brother.

"Beautiful, powerful, and enigmatic, Lena arrives in National City on the heels of brother Lex’s incarceration hoping for a fresh start," the site reveals. "Lena has taken over as CEO of her family’s billion-dollar-tech company, Luthor Corp, which has been tarnished by Lex’s evil infamy. Her goal? To re-brand the empire as a force for good. Lena wants to be seen as her own person, separate from her brother. Kara is drawn into Lena’s sphere and must determine if she is friend or foe." Intriguing, eh?

It sounds very much like Lena and LuthorCorp will replace Maxwell Lord in the series, a character who never really took off during the show's first year as he constantly flipped between being good and bad. The fact that Lex is behind bars obviously keeps him out of Supergirl for the foreseeable future, though it's interesting that his imprisonment is recent. Will we see that play out in Metropolis? Time will tell.
