Could have existed in the history of the series starring Tom Welling, especially for the villain, Lex Luthor, in fact, the actor Michael Rosenbaum spoke of plans for her character in ‘Smallville’.
The actor is best known for having played the villain most famous in the Superman series during 154 episodes and since then he has not had the opportunity to repeat his character since he left the series after the seventh season, outside of an appearance as a guest at the end of the series in 2011.
Not so long ago that the series returned to the news that Tom Welling and Erica Durance, who played Clark Kent and Lois Lane returned to the crossover, “Crisis on Infinite Earths’ which became The CW.
Rosenbaum did not return, and the role of Lex Luthor was played by Jon Cryer, who has played in the Arrowverse.
It may not be the first time that Rosenbaum misses the opportunity to go back to being Lex Luthor. In an interview the actor stated that Alfred Gough and miles Millar, the creators of the series, had a new and interesting vision of the character.
The actor stated that Warner decided not to develop that idea without giving a reason for the rejection; nor is it clear if he was referring to a potential pilot of a television or any other form of content.
“What Interpretarías to Lex again?” I’m sure, like The Thousands who created Smallville, we had an idea and it was brilliant, but for some crazy reason, the study was not interested in that, which was a little crazy, I will not say what it is, but it was a madness, it was bright, it was as if there was no way this could not happen, and especially with them because they are brilliant writers and creators, and it was the perfect team, but it didn’t happen” said the actor.
Michael Rosenbaum spoke of plans for her character in ‘Smallville’, though he left the series in 2008, as well as Gough and Millar. The two creators actually ended up in years of litigation with Warner Bros. in terms of the amount of benefits they were receiving from the study.
That suit was resolved in private, without revealing the details of the agreement. The relationship between the studio and the creators of Smallville may not have been strong enough to pursue future projects together.
In his interview, Rosenbaum expressed his interest in returning to play Lex Luthor in the future.
