    Do ur research mate michael wasnt avtually joking hes said alot of times in comicon conventions he wants to be lex luthor again and the end of smallville was clark turning into superman so obvs he can be superman 20 years later or something u make zero sense on why both tom and michael could come bk as older versions of their self besides the new dc movies are shit so id be happy for them to reboot superman and lex as the smallville follow ons thats the superman that did brilliant and was way more believable if dc want to do good again then them two actors need to reprise their roles and there both up for it so i dont no why ur saying the source u found was a joke when they have both said they would do it again they just wont be able to do smallville because they would need alot of money from dc and warner bros to do so

    "You were right about me all along Mr Eisenberg. I am the villain of the story."
    Rosenbaum was an actual Lex Luthor. Eisenberg was doing a bad impression of The Joker.

    If we can get Michael as Lex and Tom as Clark, that would be nice, and we can even keep Amy Adams as long as we can write her better. I know she can pull off Lois, but like I said, she's been written the wrong way. Also, she knows Tom and Michael from Smallville too, as she was in an episode, so there is no reason not to

    Jesse eisinberg was awful as lex luthor i would go as far as to say the worst ever. Michael rosenbaum was brilliant in smallville 1 of the best ever if not thee best ever. Get him back on board n save me😂😂.

    i disagree with john. just because he played lex in smallville doesn't mean he can't play lex in the dceu. we don't know how he's going to play it. we can't just assume that he's going to bring the smallville lex to the big screen. so saying "this isn't smallville the movie? this is a superman movie" is not really a good point to why michael shouldn't be able to play lex.

    Micheal was the best live action Lex hands down. I have no idea why they didn’t think to do an elevated version of his Lex for the movie. His background and his obsession and the way he held himself was just a great villain all around. Micheal was amazing.

    Kashod Felder 25 days ago +1

    I have to disagree I believe he would make a great Lex Luthor. His experience in Smallville will help him be the Lex he is suppose to be playing. Tom Welling would be excellent as Superman. Smallville was different but either Superman believe justice and doing what's right, protecting that is the same with Superman/Clark Kent of both worlds so it can work. The DCU needs to be saved and take time to build characters b4 you throw them together in another movie.

  • WystenDraco
    WystenDraco 25 days ago +2

    LOL! Even thought Michael Rosenbaum was joking, I'll be honest, he's still the best Lex Luthor I've ever seen. Elseworld or not, I love Smallville, it was great to see a show about a Clark Kent on a journey toward becoming Superman. I saw the first previews years ago and I knew I would be hooked from start to finish, and from the moment I watched the Series Premiere, I imagined what the Series Finale would be like at the very end, and YAY, ten years later, the very end was everything I imagine it would be and so much more. Anyway, Michael Rosenbaum voiced Wally West/Flash in the DCAU, so I don't see why they couldn't caste him as some other character in an other DC film. Smallville did a lot of things contradictory to the DC lore of the time, but that's why I loved it, it was different, and in those ten years of my life, having something that radically different was something I needed in a superhero story, as opposed to the regular stuff also around at the time. I disagreed with plenty of Smallville Universe's stuff, but overall I still love it, and will jump into the mudhole to defend it against purists, haters, and others whatever they call themselves who crap on Smallville either in non-constructive ways or do it just to be pricks. As for Tom Welling, yeah he was a great Clark Kent in growing up to eventually become Superman and I agree he was great in Lucifer, he played a great Cain, and I loved the twist on how Abel was as much of an ass as his brotherly murderer. I'd like to see them cast as at least others in a new Superman film. If they cast Erica Durance, who was Lois Lane in Smallvilel as Ulura Zor-El in Supergirl, I don't see why Michael Rosenbaum could be cast in some guest roles or even recurring ones where whoever he's cast as shows up every now and then. They even cast Brandon Routh from Superman Returns as Ray Palmer/Atom. I don't see what Michael Rosenbaum and Tom Welling couldn't be cast as different characters in a DC movie or as guest or recurring characters in Arrow, Flash, Legends, or Supergirl. Laura Vandervort was Kara Zor-El in Smallville and she was in a few eps of Supergirl as Indigo, so it's not like Smallville cast members haven't already been recast for other roles in hero media.

    darkashtar 25 days ago

    Just reminding people Rosenbaum was also the voice of the Flash in the Justice League animated series which means he did supply the voice of Lex in the great brain robbery episode where the Flash and Lex end up switching bodies. If you've never seen the Justice League cartoon, watch it. (Hell the entire Diniverse of animated DC shows is excellent).

    I think too many fans live out their fantasies way too much, In our fantasies we would all love to see a Smallville version of Superman, but there is probably just as much a chance for these guys to get any attention by WB a there is that Welling can fly...

  • VRIceblast
    VRIceblast 25 days ago

    Michael Rosenbaum is the best Lex Luthor. Honestly though, if they do another Superman movie, they should avoid using Lex. He's been done to death, and there are much better stories they can make without using the same old same old.
    How about a more uplifting Superman movie, not so dark version. Fun, entertaining, and exhilarating. The real world is dark enough everyday, let's have our movies be brighter!

    Dr. Dragon 26 days ago +1

    I'll say it Smallvilles main cast is better than nearly every other Superman lure casts of all times. As much as I love them all I know the show had it's flaws and Hollywood would never be ballsy enough to bring anyone from that cast to play an equivalent role on the big screen.

    KILLAKINGD0M 26 days ago +1

    That’s like asking if Bruce can play Batman. He’s easily the best interpretation Of Lex by any actor. That is better than Kevin spacey and better than Gene Hackman, and your argument is Smallville wasn’t Superman? He can play this role with his eyes closed, if that involves tweaking things or undoing smallville lore I don’t see that is the least bit problematic for him.

    SMF and Reviews 26 days ago

    Yes! And Tom Welling should play Supes. Marvel kept the same actors in their movies, DC should've done the same. That's why their universe doesn't feel as connected as Marvel, they keep switching up actors.

  • Chris Topher
    Chris Topher 26 days ago

    I don't think he's kidding. I hope not. On his podcast he mentioned how he would crush the audition. I agree. His Lex could easily be adapted to the movies since there hasn't been a decent Lex out side of the cartoons or Smallville. Yes I include Hackman in there as well. Didn't care for him.

    Well they can do a Smallville Movie to Reboot the Superman DCEU franchise. I would rather have that then the Black Superman. Coming from a black guy. We are not ready for a SuperMan earth 32 just get. Smallville Superman yes. Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbum, yes.

  • Dan Campbell
    Dan Campbell 26 days ago

    No idea, whether there's a chance or not.
    But the reasons given here, are not reasons. So what if 'Smallville is not Superman'? That doesn't preclude them from using a TV character in a motion picture.
    It doesn't seem likely, but the fact is we all love Michael Rosenbaum. That's at least one reason for it to happen.

    You are 100% right. No chance. He made an awesome Luthor, and I would love to see him and Welling in a Superman after Smallville movie, but no chance. That being said, Snyder's Superman movies ALSO do a whole lot of stuff that contradicts Superman lore, so does that make them Elseworlds? I SURE HOPE SO.

    Also it would be seriously cool if Michael Rosenbuam had a cameo or small guest appearance on the show Supergirl.

  • pat theman
    pat theman 27 days ago

    I was always of the opinion that the two genres should be separate. Keep Rosenbaum as TV Lex, of course. There's no question about that in my mind. But as for a movie version of Lex, I actually think that John Glover (who played Lionel Luthor on Smallville)could pull it off, He has the cinematic acting chops and a decent portfolio behind him. And if he dies his hair Fiery red, he looks like the comic version of Lex during the Doomsday Saga. So there's a pick for me. Eisenburg just ruined that movie for me. His delivery, his quirk choices, his little ticks. I was sure I was watching Ed Nigma have a nervous breakdown. Lex is supposed to be stone face serious, not a bumbling child.

  • William Grayson
    William Grayson 27 days ago

    Tom Welling was a good Clark, but he would not have worked as Superman. Rosenbaum is now a bit older, is could be possible, but I don't think WB will make him Lex again. Maybe If, when they do the Flashpoint movie and Barry screws up time and they use that to recast Batman, Superman, Lex and maybe other characters and if this would lead to crisis on infinite earths we could see Rosenbaum and Welling again, if both are up for it.
