It has finally happened! After months of speculation and when all hope was almost gone, Michael Rosenbaun has confirmed to TV Line that he will be returning one last time as Lex Luthor for the series finale of Smallville.
“I’m delighted to return for the series finale,” he said. “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.”
It is not a surprise how happy producers are with Rosenbaum´s return after he has eluded the show since he left at the end of season seven, in May 2008:
“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.”
