Michael Rosenbaum portrayed Lex Luthor for seven seasons on Smallville, with a guest appearance in the series finale in season ten. He took to Twitter this week to explain that he was approached to appear in The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, which features various portrayals of DC characters, but ultimately turned it down.
Rosenbaum explains that he was called and told that there was no script and no time frame when he would film his appearance, in addition to not being paid much. And he had to commit right then. So he passed.
But Lex Luthor fans shouldn’t be too let down, as Duckie will be reprising his version of the role as seen on Supergirl.
The event will begin in December and will conclude in January.
