Following the news that Supergirl season 4 will include classic DC villain Lex Luthor, fans are asking Michael Rosenbaum to repeat the role he played for seven seasons in Smallville. We already met a younger Lex on the show, in a flashback of the second childhood season of his stepsister Lena Luthor. However, Arrowverse's version of Lex has been solidly defeated by Superman and she is currently being held in prison, where she is supposed to stay in theory for the rest of her life.
This season of Supergirl in fact, it will return to the city of Smallville, the stage for the program of young Superman that was developed during ten seasons in The WB and The CW, in the next crossing of Elseworlds. The release of the Lex Luthor role is scheduled to begin soon, so you can probably expect to see it debut in the second half of season 4, early in 2019.

After the news of Lex's arrival at Arrowverse, Smallville fans have been asking Rosenbaum to return to The CW and play the bald supervillain one more time. Rosenbaum himself responded to one of these suggestions, and although he did not indicate in any way whether he would be interested in returning to the role, he agreed jokingly that his Lex Luthor was "underestimated."
Definitely underestimated. LOL

This would not be the first time that an actor from a previous Superman show joins the cast of Supergirl. Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher, the two protagonists of Lois and Clark: the new adventures of Superman, played Kara's adoptive father, Jeremiah Danvers and Mon-El's mother, Rhea, respectively. Helen Slater, who played Supergirl in the 1984 film, plays Kara's adoptive mother on the show, while Wonder Woman actress Lynda Carter plays the president of the United States. And while it may seem a bit of an exaggeration to recover the Lex Luthor from Rosenbaum, despite Smallville not being officially part of the Arrowverse, it would definitely fit with SupergirlThe love of fun and service to the fans.
The other question, of course, is whether Rosenbaum would be willing and able to join the show in a recurring role. This summer the actor started a podcast, Inside you with Michael Rosenbaum, where a famous guest actor stars in each episode (the episode debuted SmallvilleClark Kent, Tom Welling, and another episode presented Arrow actor Stephen Amell). However, he does not seem to have any major commitment to television or the movie that might clash with Supergirl season 4. Could fans really make this happen?
