Smallville Bummer!

| Filed under: TV News

As the long running CW show starts wrapping up its final season, fans are eagerly awaiting to see how it will all end for Superman on Smallville.

Yes, we know, there are tons of movies and comics out there to give them an idea, but really, the show has created its own Super-universe, so perhaps the creators have a twist Man of Steel fans aren't expecting.

One thing all Smallville fans have been hoping for in the end is a guest appearance by Michael Rosenbaum. Michael, who originated the role of Lex in the first few seasons, left the show a few years ago to pursue other creative avenues.

But honestly, how is the show supposed to end without a Lex vs. Clark Kent showdown?

Sadly, it seems like it might.

Source close to the show say producers have been practically BEGGING him to return for an episode, but he's outright refused. One knowledgeable source explains:

“He has put the show behind him and moved on. He’s pursuing his other creative outlet [writing]. By all indications, he is not going to be involved.”

Boo! You know, we hate when actors don't have loyalty to their roots. Would it really have killed him to head up to Vancouver for a few days as a favor for some old friends?

Whatever! Tom Welling is hotter anyway!

    Yes!! Lex was the whole reason I STOPPED watching Smallville!

    That is very lame. Maybe there are $$ issues.

    I get it…but I don't understand why Michael can't just making one special finanle appearance..do it for the fans..I don't think anyone thought Smallville would last 10 years…I think it is pretty awesome, and for him not to finish the season with them, is a slap in the face to the cast and to us. His fame arose from Smallville..I went to Seattle every year for the RMHC to meet him! to support him! I went to LA for the Dodgers all star game to cheer him on! I feel that I made sacrafices to support him and this is what he does in return?
    BOO

    He's being a douche.

    "Loyalty"? Heaven forbid the man might want to do something other than being known as TV's Lex Luthor for the rest of his life. And given how awful Smallville has gotten, I don't blame him.

    He's definitely being a douche. It's not like he left and became George Clooney. He's been in sadsack unfunny "comedy" movies playing the exact same role he's been playing in them for years. He's got loyal fans who contribute to his charities and go to his celebrity hockey games and support him no matter what crap he's in BECAUSE he's their Lex. Going to do one or two episodes to say goodbye to a show he was on for so long is the least he can do for his fans. Though, why you marked out Kristen too, I don't get. Not that the fans WANT Lana back. It'd be a nice goodbye, but honestly they should've killed her years ago. lol

    Just curious if you posted a retraction to this? Michael Rosenbaum agreed to return to do the finale and the deal was announced Friday night.
