Smallville “Booster”

Synopsis: After everything that happened with the VRA, Lois (Erica Durance) tells Clark (Tom Welling) it’s best to make Clark Kent forgettable and awkward so people don’t suspect he’s The Blur. However, the two are stunned when a fame-hungry superhero from the future, Booster Gold (guest star Eric Martsolf), sweeps into town and begins making saves and posing for press ops, completely winning over the city of Metropolis. Booster begins his campaign to take The Blur’s place as the ‘World’s Greatest Superhero’ and tries to charm Lois into writing a story about him, but she’s not having his antics and begins her own campaign for The Blur. During one of Booster’s saves, an alien weapon in the form of a scarab falls from a truck and fuses itself to a boy named Jaime Reyes (guest star Jaden Brandt Bartlett), turning him into the Blue Beetle. Unfortunately, Jaime is unable to control the suit and Blue Beetle starts attacking Metropolis.

The episode was written by Geoff Johns and was directed by Welling.

Smallville Just May Get a Season 10

 

“I think creatively, we’ve been happy with the show. And it’s gotten to the point where Friday nights have improved for us, so it looks good. But we don’t know, because it’s really too early. It’s January and we don’t have to make these decisions until May. But it’s increased our adult 18-34 and it certainly has increased our men 18-34 on Friday nights. Creatively, I think it’s been in a good place. I think Tom [Welling]’s still having a good time with it. I think he’s enthusiastic about it. So, we’ll see where we are a few months from now.”

 

She went to say: “Clearly, we’re going to have a great season finale, as we would for any year, and whether or not it will be a show finale, we don’t know yet. We haven’t really talked about it, because they’re not that far along yet in the storylines, but I think it will be a good season finale for sure. And if the show doesn’t come back, I think it will be a sort of really last minute decision, because either development [for new series] was great or the show wasn’t doing as well on Friday nights. But we still have a whole half a season to go before we have to determine that.”

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.

Stargirl and Hawkman Heading to Smallville

 

But the news doesn't stop there, guess who is portraying Hawkman? None other than Stargate SG1's Michael Shanks. Go ahead and scream you Shanks fans, I know you want too! And yes that is Shanks in the photo. Anywho Dr. Fate will be played by Brent Stait, and Stargirl will be played by Britt Irvin. Also more Justice Society characters are expected to appear in the episodes.

Johns last season's "Legions" episode that featured members of DC Comics "Legion of Super-Heroes" is so far one of the best episodes ever of Smallville's 9 year run. John's script was heavy on the inside jokes and comic references, and all the actors did a fantastic job portraying some of DC's more obscure heroes.

So make sure to tune in as I am sure you won't be disappointed.
