Michael Rosenbaum comments on returning to Smallville



Last time we saw Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor in an episode of Smallville was three years ago.

We learned the actor will be coming back to portray the archnemis to Tom Welling's Superman on the two hour last episode of Smallville which airs on May 13th.

Rosenbaum, speaking with his stepfather at the  CourierPress, tells us that he "felt it was the right thing to do":

“I felt the fans created the show and they followed me at such a level that I couldn’t say no. I was starting to hear voices. I felt after 160 episodes, that was it. But the fans didn’t think so. I’m doing it for them. I’ve got to make the fans happy. Lex is an integral part of the show. No one expects a show to last 10 years. I gave them seven years and I thought it was pretty commendable. Now it’s been on three more years. Clark is starting to look like he’s in his 30s.”

What can we expect to see when the two finally meet?

“Obviously there’s unfinished business between Clark and Lex that have got to get resolved,” said Rosenbaum, “Our future is depending on it.”

Smallville airs on the CW Friday nights at 8pm Eastern/7pm Central.
