Luthor Returns To Smallville
The wait is over! Now we know – Luthor will be returning to Smallville this November (schedule willing) for at least two episodes in its tenth and final season.had
Ummm… To be fair, that’s Lionel Luthor. We haven’t heard about his depilated-pated kid Lex yet, who might be surprised to learn that neither of them are still dead. When last seen, Lex pushed his daddy out a window to his death.
According to Entertainment Weekly (owned by Time Warner, which owns Warner Bros, which owns DC Comics and produces Smallville), Lionel, played by John Glover, will be joining a slew of Smallville ex-expatriates, including Laura Vandervoort as Supergirl, James Marsters as Brainiac, and
Michael Shanks as Hawkman. And he won’t be the only returning dead daddy, either: Pa Kent himself will be back, again, still in the capable hands of John Schneider.
Some of Smallville‘s finest moments were between Glover and Michael Rosenbaum, who played his upwardly-mobile son Lex. There’s no word on Lex’s return to the series; my guess is that we will see him back for at least the final two episodes – the latter of which concluding with Clark Kent putting on his cape and big red S and flying off into the sunset.
