This should make Smallville fans happy!
Michael Rosenbaum will reprise his role of Lex Luthor for Smallville's two-hour season finale airing May 13.
After a year of speculation, Rosenbaum and producers finally came to an agreement that the actor appear on the finale of the show's 10th season.
"I'm delighted to return for the series finale. I'm simply doing it for all of the fans out there who made Smallville the great success it is. I appreciate all of their passion, their relentlessness, and even their threats. Ha ha.
I can’t wait to hug the old crew back in Vancouver one last time and see all of my old friends once again. Oh, and for Lex to become the bad-ass he’s destined to be."
Everyone on the show is super happy that he's on board and have expressed their excitement. Executive producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson say:
"It feels like the stars are aligning, literally. We couldn’t be more excited. And as far as the way he returns… there’ll be no doubt about how Lex becomes the great rival in Clark Kent’s life. He is the villain of the story."
And with the character of Clark transitioning into Superman, this is the best news Smallville and comic fans could ask for.
So, are U excited for the return of Lex Luthor?
