Is Smallville getting Green Lantern and Sandman?

 

We already knew that the Justice Society of America storyline will be airing in February as a two hour TV-Movie Special called “Absolute Justice” and it would would introduce Hawkman, Doctor Fate and Stargirl – and we knew more characters would be appearing. Well we now know thanks to the trailer that Sandman – the original, yes that gas mask wearing Wesley Dodds. But the real kicker that has us all at the edge of our seats was a glimpse (the kind you miss if you blink) of a man’s hand wearing a very familiar unforgettable green ring.

Green Lantern, Sandman, Doctor Fate

 

Even though Smallville producers have noted over and over that they can’t use several characters currently in the pipeline for movies, and yes that has included none other than Green Lantern. The Green Lantern movie is about to go into production, and will be starring Ryan Reynolds as Hal Jordan. But it seems that the powers that be at DC and Warner Bros. have eased their restrictions just a bit, as it is very obvious that the ring shown belongs to the original Green Lantern who just so happens to be Alan Scott a Justice Society of America member.

 

Given that we’ve only heard about Hawkman, Doctor Fate and Stargirl meeting Clark Kent, it seems more than likely that Sandman and Green Lantern will only be appearing in flashbacks, and at this junction that maybe all we see of Alan Scott and Wesley Dodds. Still just their appearance in any fashion is notable for any DC Comics fans, and continues to rise Smallville’s status on the growing television version of the DC Universe.
