Will Superboy Replace Smallville?

Filed under: TV News

superboy may be smallville spinoff

Exciting/bittersweet times for Smallville fans!

Last week, we learned that Michael Rosenbaum will be returning as Lex Luthor for the series finale of Smallville.

Now, it looks there MAY be life after Smallville for fans of the series…in the form of Superboy.

Along with Lex, Superboy will be introduced to the world in the show's series finale, which is likely to pave the way for the character's own spin-off series.

We're not 100% sure how we feel about this. Spin-off series have certainly worked before, like Frasier, but there have also been some that have NOT worked so well. Cough…Joey…Cough.

What do U think about the possibility of a Superboy-themed Smallville spin-off? Would U watch?

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.

Rosenbaum says:

"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?

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!
