Smallville - Rosenbaum out, Doomsday in

We knew it was coming. At the end of February 2007,Smallville actor,Michael Rosenbaum,announced his intentions of leaving the show at the end of the 2007-2008 season in order to tackle new projects. For the past year, fans (I include myself here) hoped that the actor would change his mind. How can Smallville be, well, Smallville without Lex Luthor? Things looked grim when the actor reminded us last February that he was done with the show, come the Season 7 finale. And today, fans around the world must come to the realization that Rosenbaum wasn't joking: he really is leaving the show "to start the next chapter of my life and career," he says in a joint statement with The CW.

In his letter to Smallville fans, Rosenbaum thanks them for their support and making the show a success. He hopes that fans will follow his "career through [his] hair growth period and beyond." The actor, who is excited about the future, also takes time to thank the people involved with making the show.

In the joint statement, The CW, along with the executive producers, thanks the actor for his great work in the past season. The network also reveals what's in store villain-wise for next season.

Season 8 will introduce two new villains. One is the famous Doomsday, the only DC Comics character to have killed Superman. The second one is an unnamed female villain who is said, in the statement, to "be familiar to many fans." The statement also says that she "will set her sights on Clark in ways Lex never could." Could she be the person who'll win Clark's heart since Lana will be gone (Kristin Kreuk is said to appear in very few episodes next season)?

Michael Rosenbaum fans must watch the next two episodes as they will be Lex-heavy. The May 15 finale will be very important in Lex's quest to find The Traveler. Let's just hint that Lex will be traveling to the Arctic.
