Smallville, Lois and ClarkWe posted a preview of the all new episode earlier in the week, but I wanted to post a TV Tonight also to remind everyone that tonight Teri Hatcher makes an brief appearance on the final season of Smallville. The once Lois Lane will now be stepping into the role of Ella Lane, Lois’ mother who passed away many years ago from cancer, in a series of videos that Lois finds when she moves in with Clark.

In addition to Hatcher’s appearance, we have a lot of reasons to look forward to the new episode of Smallville; Jor-El and Lara (Julian Sands and Helen Slater) will be making appearances as will the Fortress (will we see the costume again?) along with  DC comics villains Granny Goodness and Harriet.  The show has gotten really good at expanding the DC Comics Universe and I can’t wait until they introduce Booster Gold and Blue Beetle later in the season (and of course the return of Aquaman next week).

What else is on tonight?

This Friday, my personal favorite Lois Lane, Teri Hatcher, guests stars on the newest episode of Smallville. Hatcher will be portraying Lois’ mother, who passed away while Lois was just a child. Also guest starring in the episode is Julian Sands and the big screen Supergirl Helen Slater as Jor-El and Lara, Clark’s parents from Krypton. This is the first time we will see Jor-El and Lara together and the first time we will see the Jor-El from the Fortress and not just hear his voice. What change causes this to happen? You’ll have to watch the new episode on the CW this Friday to find out. Below is the episode’s preview.

Okay, so we still don’t have news about a new live action Superman film, but thankfully we still has a ton of Superman adaptations, some of which have been awesome lately!  I really enjoyed the last Superman animated film I saw, Batman/Superman: Public Enemies, and I can’t wait to see Batman/Superman: Apocalypse, which features Supergirl and Darkseid. Well, they just announced the latest Superman flick…

The new flick is based on the very Silver Age inspired All Star Superman limited series, which was written by Grant Morrison with art by Frank Quitely. In the series, Superman gets accidentally supercharged after a rescue mission takes him too close to the sun. His overpowered cells begin to poison him and he knows that he is dying. The story showcases what he chooses to do when he knows that he doesn’t have much time left. James Denton from Desperate Housewives lends his voice to Superman, while the lovely Christina Hendricks from Mad Men voices Lois Lane. Other cast members include Anthony LaPaglia, Ed Asner, Frances Conroy, Linda Cardellini, Arnold Vosloo, and Matthew Gray Gubler. If done right, this could be a very special Superman flick.

Smallville's Final Season

How badass is this still from the season premiere of Smallville‘s final season? Lois Lane is stuck in a position Clark Kent knew all to well in the series’ pilot.  Does this mean we’ll get the return of the villainous Jeremy Creek, the show’s first “meteor freak”.  The preview for the new season is a lot of fun and I can’t wait to see Clark finally become Superman. I absolutely hate the name the red and blue blur and the black suit that Clark is currently wearing. I hope that they have him become Superman mid-season and we actually see him as Superman for a bit of the final season, but I seriously doubt that will happen. We shall have to wait and see. The season premiere is next week, Friday September 24th.

Smallville

The final season of Smallville is almost upon us! Here is some of the latest news about the end of the long running “young Superman” drama:

  • John Schneider will return as Jonathan Kent in the premiere and will guest star in a number of episodes throughout the season.
  • James Marsters will return as Braniac in the 200th episode. Rumors are saying that he might not be the evil Braniac that we know and love, but a different version of the character.
  • Laura Vandervoort will return as Kara/Supergirl for at least one episode, maybe more? I hope so.
  • The Superman suit appeared in the Comic Con trailer. It was the actual suit worn by Brandon Routh in Superman Returns.  I hope if this is the suit Clark wears, they they replace the maroon with red. The Returns suit was a bit of a disappointment.
  • Cat Grant will become a recurring character with Keri Lynn Pratt replacing Emilie Ullerup. She will become Clark’s new partner at the Daily Planet. Where does that leave Lois?
  • Michael Shanks will return as Hawkman. He appeared in the Smallville: Absolute Justice TV Movie that featured the JSA.
  • Sahar Biniaz has been cast as Hawkgirl, and I think we can all assume that she’ll be in the same episode of Hawkman.
  • Bradley Stryker has been cast as Deadshot, a member of the Suicide Squad.
  • Blue Beetle and Booster Gold will appear in an episode. Both are long running DC Comic characters.
  • Justin Hartley, aka Oliver Queen/Green Arrow, will direct an episode.

Are you excited for Smallville‘s final season? What news do you want to hear?

Smallville, Lois and Clark

We all expected it, but now the CW has confirmed it! Smallville‘s 10th season will be its last!  Here is an official press release by the network:

Entering its explosive tenth season, Smallville culminates in the epic rise of the world’s ultimate hero — Superman. Finally working alongside the intrepid Lois Lane at the Daily Planet, Clark Kent had accepted his destiny as the guardian of Metropolis when General Zod arrived, challenging Clark’s authority and power.

Just when the romance between Clark and Lois began to bloom, Clark was called into duty by the legendary Justice Society and his own burgeoning league of heroes to fight the gathering dark forces. As season nine drew to a close, Clark sacrificed himself to save the world from Zod. Season ten promises the classic reuniting of the timeless romance between Clark and Lois, and brings Clark face to face with his destiny as he overcomes his final trials and forges the iconic identity that will be known for all time.

The series stars Tom Welling as Clark Kent, Erica Durance as Lois Lane, Justin Hartley as Oliver Queen and Cassidy Freeman as Tess Mercer

Noticeably absent from the cast list is Allison Mack who has portrayed Chloe Sullivan since the beginning of the show (the last remaining original cast member besides Welling). Rumor has it that she will continue in a limited role through guest appearances.  Hopefully the series will be able to convince Michael Rosenbaum to reprise Lex Luthor before the end of its run. What better way to end the series than having all of the pieces in place for the Superman mythology?

Smallville: The New Adventures of Lois and Clark?

Smallville, Lois and Clark

It is official, Smallville will return to the CW for its 10th season! And maybe, just maybe we’ll be seeing Clark wear the familiar red and blue costume that is beloved by millions. Here is an official press release from the network:

“SMALLVILLE” TO RETURN FOR A TENTH SEASON ON THE CW

March 4, 2010 ( Burbank , California ) ? The CW Network has announced that its hit series “Smallville” will return in the fall of 2010 for a momentous tenth season.

“Smallville,” a modern retelling of the Superman legend, stars Tom Welling as Clark Kent . The series moved to Friday nights this season, where it currently ranks as network television’s #1 show in its time period among men 18-34 and men 18-49. Additionally, “Smallville” has dramatically improved The CW’s ratings performance in its Friday 8:00-9:00p.m.time period by 67% among adults 18-34 (1.5/6), 200% in men 18-34 (1.8/7), 75% in adults 18-49 (1.4/5), 183% in men 18-49 (1.7/6) and 74% in total viewers (3.12million).

“Smallville” joins the five previously announced series – “The Vampire Diaries,” “Gossip Girl,” “90210,” “Supernatural” and “ America ’s Next Top Model” – which will all return for another season on The CW.

“Smallville” was developed for television by Alfred Gough & Miles Millar (“Shanghai Noon,” “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor”), based on the DC Comics characters. Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson serve as executive producers, along with James Marshall, Mike Tollin, Brian Robbins and Joe Davola. The series is produced by Tollin/Robbins Productions, Millar/Gough Ink and Warner Bros. Television. SUPERMAN was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster.

The show has really begun to utilize its DC Comics roots and I hope that continues into the new season. I’d love to see more of the JSA, the L.E.G.I.O.N., Impulse, Cyborg, etc and I hope they continue using real comic villains, how cool Metallo earlier in the season? And who doesn’t love Zod?

Are you excited about Smallville getting a new season? Or did you give up on the show a long time ago?

Smallville, Lois and ClarkTonight’s Smallville looks like it is going to be a big one, with flashbacks to Lois’ time in the future. A future where where Metropolis is under the ruling thumb of Zod, and Clark has been left powerless due to a red sun.

This season of Smallville has been really interesting, with a nice mix of characters from the comic and a season spanning storyline.

The new episode airs tonight at 8pm on the CW. It is Friday, so there isn’t much on. What? You are going out? Well, haven’t you heard of TIVO? Or you could always check out the episode on the CW’s site.
