Michael Rosenbaum reveals that he will not be in Crisis on Infinite Earths… and why

September 25th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Well, I cannot lie to you all, this is disappointing.

With the confirmation a few days ago that Tom Welling and Erica Durance would be returning to their roles of Clark Kent and Lois Lane for The CW’s upcoming mega Arrowverse crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths, it felt like a done deal that Michael Rosenbaum, who played Lex Luthor in the series, would be back too.

In all honesty, I assumed it was a sure as eggs is eggs that he would be back but, alas, it seems it’s not to be.

The actor has taken to twitter (below) to share with the fans that he won’t be the crossover… and also why.

Have a read of the post below and ask yourself… is he telling the truth? There’s still a few who believe he’s not but honestly, I think this might be pretty cut and dry.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
