Rosenbaum Turns Down Return to "Smallville"

EW.com are reporting that Michael Rosenbaum will not return to the 10th and final season of "Smallville" to reprise his role of Lex Luthor.

EW has learned that actor Michael Rosenbaum has repeatedly rebuffed attempts by producers this season to get him back on The CW's show to reprise his role as Luthor in the finale.

"He has put the show behind him and moved on," says a knowledgeable source. "He's pursuing his other creative outlet [writing]. By all indications, he is not going to be involved."

There's still a small window of opportunity for Michael to change his mind, with the show wrapping production within the next two months, but it doesn't look likely.

Ilya Salkind Company Issues Press Release Regarding Ilya's Condition

By Barry Freiman (Associate Editor of Superman Homepage & Dc Comics Expert)

Glenn Weisberger, Senior Executive of the Ilya Salkind Company, today provided the Superman Homepage with a Press Release regarding Ilya Salkind's visit to Mexico and released some of the details of the accident that resulted in his hospitalization on Monday:

Q: Why was he in Mexico?

A: Mr. Salkind has an estate in Mexico that he visits from time to time in a charming little village near Mexico City. It's a quaint quiet location where he can go to think. He had some business to conduct there so he went down to complete the business and take a little vacation. The most important part of the business was to get away from the frenetic hustle and bustle of Hollywood so that he could work on his next blockbuster
film, THE ABOMINABLE SNOWMAN. This big budget project is in the financing phase and we plan to be in production later this year.

Q:What happened?
A: He was taking an stroll and had an accident. He was taken to a hospital and unfortunately he didn't have his cell phone with him and
communication lapsed. Mr. Salkind's condition is stable and we hope to
have more information from his doctors shortly. He is expected to return to his home in Los Angeles soon.
