Lex WILL Return to Smallville


Despite numerous claims to the contrary, Michael Rosenbaum will be returning as Lex Luthor for Smallville’s two-hour series finale on May 13th. TVLine.com got the exclusive on the news and confirmed that Rosenbaum has signed on for Lex, and even got quotes from him:

“I’m delighted to return for the series finale,” Rosenbaum tells TVLine exclusively. “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.”

The actor continues, “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.”

Although Lex has been absent from Smallville for a while (along with quality storytelling), the end of the series just wouldn’t be the same without Clark’s arch-nemesis. This news makes the series finale, along with Clark finally donning THE SUIT, much more tempting to watch.
