I really like Michael Rosenbaum to play Lex tho, but I understand they don't want to cause confusion between Smallville and Supergirl universe…Michael is my fav Lex!

Michael Rosenbaum and IMO it’s not even close! He played Lex absolutely beautifully,creating such a psychologically complex version. I still refer to Smallville S3’s episode Shattered as some of the finest acting on TV @michaelrosenbum
