Why This Smallville Actor Declined An Offer To Join Crisis On Infinite Earths


With The CW getting ready to roll out their new seasons, many are waiting in anticipation for how all the shows will lead to the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event.  The events are usually on a grand scale previously being the first of its kind to have such a crossover on TV, but also the formatting spanning across multiple shows as well as being used as a catalyst for introducing new characters.  This year the crossover event will signal the end of the series that started it all on The CW, Arrow.  We already know that Black Lightning will be joining the fold as well as Tom Welling from Smallville, and there has been other whispering of possible characters set to appear, or make a cameo.  One individual fans had been hoping for was Smallville‘s Lex Luther, Michael Rosenbaum who took to Twitter to let the world know that he in fact turned down the offer, and why:

Many fans are torn over Rosenbaum’s decision.  For some, it seems legit that maybe The CW doesn’t have a full game plan at this point and may just be pulling ideas out of the air.  We have somewhat seen similar writing in certain seasons of Arrow and The Flash.  Others are questioning the validity of his comments because they do not see how The CW could be shooting the crossover and not yet have a completed script.  Either way, it would have been nice dose of nostalgia to see Smallville‘s Lex make an appearance in the crossover event.

What are your thoughts?  Do you think The CW doesn’t actually have a game plan yet, or could there be other reasons Rosenbaum chose to decline the offer?  What other characters would you like to see in the crossover event?  I would love to see John Wesley Shipp back in the role of the 1990’s Flash (what can I say, I’m a sucker for nostalgia). Heck, throw in Dean Cain as Superman while they’re at it! Also, could the Crisis possibly right the ship for some shows that maybe did not end the way fans wanted or should they leave older shows as they stand?  Leave your thoughts in the usual spot, and thanks for reading!
