Deadline Hollywood is reporting that Michael Rosenbaum will reprise his role as “Lex Luthor” on the “Smallville” series finale. This news will certainly please long time fans of the series. Many feel the series lost much of its impact after Rosenbaum left. The actor claims he’s doing it for just these people:
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 badass he’s destined to be.
Is it just us or is there a hint of the sinister Lex in that statement?
