Michael Rosenbaum (Lex) Returning For The Final Episode Of Smallville!

Only mere days after the internet was awash with confirmation that Michael Rosenbaum wouldn't be returning to Smallville's final 10th season in any way or form because he'd "moved on" TV Line grabbed a scoop through Michael Ausiello directly from the horses mouth that he was in fact coming back to play Lex Luthor for the final double episode finale. Speculation and mass misdirection has been rife on the internet since the end of season 9, even before that, and everything had pointed to Michael not wanting to return, no matter what the incentive, but luckily for fans it looks like that was wrong.

Here's what Rosenbaum told Ausiello:

“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.”

“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.”

Executive producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson say of Rosenbaum’s encore, “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.”
