Re: Smallville Season 11, it"s happening...
I've never understood DC forbidding them from using characters in Smallville. IMO it's different enough from the other DC stuff that I don't think there would be any confusion about the Smallville version, or a movie version. I think overall people are smart enough to that they would have been able to tell that Smallville's Batman, and Nolan's Batman are not the same person.
Over the course of many encounters and many years, I have successfully developed a standard operating procedure for dealing with big, nasty monsters. Run away. Me and Monty Python.
