The DC Comics adaptation”Arrow” got special treatment as the first promo shown to the audience, even before network President Mark Pedowitz began the customary rundown of the new fall line-up.
Starring Stephen Amell (“Private Practice,” “Hung”) as millionaire bad boy Oliver Queen and his superhero alter ego Green Arrow, the Greg Berlanti-produced series appears to have a tone and look very close to Christopher Nolan’s Batman. Dark, brooding and filled with exciting action.
In other words, it could reach beyond a fanboy base to appeal to viewers who found WB/CW’s long-running comicbook hit “Smallville” a little corny.
Smallville Season Ten ended as it always should have done. Clark Kent ripping the glasses from his face, pulling at his shirt, about to take flight from the top of the Daily Planet.
And that was that – aside from a bedtime story from Chloe to her son.
What happened next?
Bryan Miller, story editor and writer for the series, is to write a new novel, tellling the story of what happened to the Smallville cast after the end of the TV series in continuity. With Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season Eight and Nine doing so well in comic book form, this seems a rather natural move.
Whether there will be more novels, who else will write them, and whether or not they will appear in comic book form as well, guess we’ll wait until the official announcement to find out.
Somebody save me. We all remember Smallville, right? I mean it only ended not that long ago and was on the air for 10 years. Point is, ever wonder what Lois Lane looked like topless? Yea, me neither. I always wondered what Lana Lang looked like topless more than Lois, but, either way, wonder no more.
Erica Durance get topless on the set of her upcoming movie, House of the Dead. Enjoy:
Rumor has it a “Hawkman” movie is in development by producers Adrian Askarieh, Gregory Novack and production executive Will Hackner. The info comes courtesy of It’sOnTheGrid, a members-only site for tracking Hollywood project seedlings.
“Part INDIANA JONES/DA VINCI CODE, part GHOST tentpole about the fictional superhero that appears in D.C. Comic books. He used archaic weaponry and large, artificial wings attached to a harness made of the Nth metal that allows flight. Most incarnations of Hawkman work closely with a partner/romantic interest named Hawkgirl or Hawkwoman in his fight against supervillains. Based on the DC comic.”
If nothing else, comparisons to films like those of the “Indiana Jones” and “Da Vinci Code” franchises point toward the likelihood of this storyline exploring the character’s original origin, in which American archeologist Carter Hall discovers he’s a reincarnated ancient Egyptian prince, rather than origins involving the planet Thanagar. Of course, this is all still rumor at this point.
Is it possible the world didn’t end because Macho Man Randy Savage stopped Jesus from starting the rapture? Just a thought. On today’s show, doomsday prophet ‘flabbergasted’ world didn’t end, Arnold Schwarzenegger update with an introduction to the hotness that is Katherine Schwarzenegger. Also, Demi Lovato takes on cyber bullies then tweets unattractive picture of herself, Michael questions if Pippa Middleton’s apple ass is overrated and a listener e-mails an upskirt picture of Vanessa Hudgens. Then, Rebecca Black confirms she is not pregnant and an update of comics big three: Wonder Woman, Batman, Superman.
Heard on the Show:
Ten years of Smallville has been building up to this one final moment. From the first episode we all knew the final scene of the final episode would be of Clark Kent finally embrasing his destiny, doning his red and blue super gear and flying into the sunset to the music of John Williams. Even though we knew it was coming, it was still just as satisfying.
More screencaps from the Smallville series finale have been released. A few suspicious I had have been confirmed, at least one WTF moment came up and I have one more theory.
There you have it. I was right. The series finale of Smallville has the wedding of Clark Kent and Lois Lane. Clark does not look very happy in this picture. But then again, what man is 100% happy on his wedding day?
Martha Kent makes her return just in time for the wedding. With Annette O’Toole and Michael Rosenbaum returning for the finale, it’s nice to see the original cast togther. To bad Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk) couldn’t return. I do have to admit I’ve always had a crush on her. Speaking of the original cast, do you remember Clark’s best friend Pete Ross? Yea, I didn’t think you would. Google him. What ever happened to him?
WTF? Is that Pa Kent? I thought he was dead. How can a dead man attend a wedding?
And finally, is the red glare a boom tube opening up? Do you know what comes out from boom tubes? Darkseid. This Darkseid vs. Superman rumble better deliver.
These pictures from “Finale” look amazing and get me so excited for the series finale of Smallville. I can’t wait.
When Michael Rosenbaum was on Smallville he shaved his head to play ol’ crome dome Lex. However, when Michael returned to the set for the series finale, he came with a full head of hair which called for a bald cap. His head looks oddly shaped here.
Notice Lex’s right hand. Gloved in liveless. In the comic series, Lex Luthor had a robotic right hand. For years he wore a Kryptonite ring as protection from Superman. As time went on, the low levels of radition coming from the Kryptonite, resulted in Lex losing his hand. Wonder what the Smallville twist will be?
Lex and Clark together again. The shit will hit the fan, for sure. All Clark needs is a tie and jacket to complete his wedding garb. Form the looks of this picture, there will be a Lois and Clark wedding in the series finale.
Watch the the two-hour series finale of Smallville on May 13.
In case you have been living under a rock: Osama Bin Laden, the World Hide and Go Seek Champion 10 years trailing, has been shot in the eye. GO, AMERICA!!!!! Michael gives his thoughts on the death of Osama Bin Laden, reveals who holds the top spot in celebrity online searches (hint: vagina) and some geek talk: Avengers movie script leak, Smallville finale and the Green Lantern movie. Plus, Miley Cyrus twitpic: something big is coming.
Heard on the Show:
With one more Smallville episode until the series finale, I am still crossing my fingers the final will deliver. In the “Prophecy” episode promo, is that Secret Society of Super-Villians? Wow. If it is…wow. I cannot wait.
Let me try my best to figure out who these bad guys are: (clockwise) Solomon Grundy, Black Manta, Captain Cold, Roulette, I have no clue who that guy is, Dark Archer and Granny Goodness on the screen in the middle.
In the comic version, the most recent Secret Society was lead by Lex Luther. With Luthor returning in the finale, maybe Smallville will go the same route.
UPDATE: According to MTV news, the mysterious character I could not name is reported to be Metallo, played by Brian Austin Green. In addition, Toyman is also appearing in this episode.
Just another typical lonely Monday night at the casa de Michael: laundry, cat piss and another exciting installment of The Michael Show. On today’s show, Rebecca Black gets involved in a satanic, chicken eating, gang fight and hear what a Rebecca Black/Justin Beiber-wanna-sniff-his-finger-cause-of-Selenas-beaver-Beiber duet song might sound like. Also, Superman reboot confirmed cast members and Booster Gold rushes into Smallville.
First it was the Legion of Super-Heroes. Then it was the Justice Society. And now, DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns is introducing Booster Gold and Blue Beetle into the Smallville’s canon – and TV Guide has debuted the first image of the pair.
“The one thing Booster does prove to Clark is that people want to look up to this guy,” Johns told the magazine of the debut of the character being played by actor Eric Martsolf in April 22′s “Booster.” “They want to be inspired, and no one’s doing it for them.”
How teenage Blue Beetle Jaime Reyes fits into the picture is still under wraps, however Johns explained the for Booster’s part, the hero will be in line with the way the scribe wrote him in his own ongoing series as well as “52.” “This guy always shows up at the last second to make a dramatic rescue, which is really suspect…Sometimes you laugh with Booster, sometimes you laugh at him.”

This should make Smallville fans happy! Michael Rosenbaum will reprise his role of Lex Luthor for Smallville’s two-hour season finale airing May 13. After a year of speculation, Rosenbaum and producers finally came to an agreement that the actor appear on the finale of the show’s 10th season.
“I’m delighted to return for the series finale. I’m simply doing it for all of the fans out there who made Smallville the great success it is. I appreciate all of their passion, their relentlessness, and even their threats. Ha ha.
I can’t wait to hug the old crew back in Vancouver one last time and see all of my old friends once again. Oh, and for Lex to become the bad-ass he’s destined to be.”
Everyone on the show is super happy that he’s on board and have expressed their excitement. Executive producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson say:
“It feels like the stars are aligning, literally. We couldn’t be more excited. And as far as the way he returns… there’ll be no doubt about how Lex becomes the great rival in Clark Kent’s life. He is the villain of the story.”
And with the character of Clark transitioning into Superman, this is the best news Smallville and comic fans could ask for.
