I'm just waiting for Perry White to come back to the show. I seriously expect to see a casting announcement for him, but it'll be Perry White jr, the son of Perry White sr seen in season 3. That way he'll be young and sexy enough to appeal to the teen girl fanbase.

Not likely.

SOMEONE at DC or Time Warner sure put their foot down about Jimmy Olsen being too old for the traditional character. (He's supposed to be what? Ten years younger than Clark and Lois?) What do we get at the end of season eight? The Jimmy we've come to know and like gets MURDERED and BURIED (and from the reports we've heard, that's not going to be changed by time travel...Ashmore is GONE from the cast), despite the wedding vows it seems James wasn't his first name, and from the looks of things his LITTLE BROTHER may end up as THE Jimmy Olsen.

With such a drastic change, seemingly based on "correcting an error", I doubt we'll end up seeing a young guy as Perry White. He's supposed to be a lot older than Clark and Lois. With the Jimmy situation, I doubt they'll go for an age-inaccurate character again.

I'm just waiting for Mxyzptlk to come back and turn out to actually be from a parallel universe, only now discovering the extent of his powers.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

metamorpho would be an entirely difficult and expensive cgi character to... i wonder what he would look like as stop motion claymation walking along side everyone else in real life?

But mason is a batman character more than a super man charcter. so they'd only tap him if they accidentally chanced upon a superb SFX likeness of his abilities.

fingers crossed

It's neither confirmed for 2 more nor as ending with season 9.

Welling is signed for a 10th IF THERE IS ONE. All we know for sure is that there'll be a 9th.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

ah! so the actors (or just welling) signed on for 2 more, but whether 10th season will happen will depend on 9. ok.

They haven't been advertising it as their final season, but it is a wait and see if SV goes to 10.

I could see CW dragging it out just for bragging rights (which I kinda wonder if that is what happened with SG-1).

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

yes Rex Mason does seem like he would be expensive to do, still he would fit into the show quite well, accident down at a Luthor Corp planet etc etc,

as for Jimmy, its nice that DC are showing an interest, but I think there are other things about Smallville that require the attention of DC, like doing something to get rid of ALL of the Kypronite.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

If Mason does turn out to be Metamorpho they could handle the CGI like they did with Doomsday and just show occasional shots of the character. The fact that Smallville has moved to Friday night's isn't encouraging but I wonder what it is going to take for CW to axe the series? Not that I want it to be cancelled, I just want a satisfied ending (which I'm probably not going to get).

HA! Metamorpho's power actually do come from meteor exposure!!!

Add a little ancient Egyptian mysticism, but it was a glowing rock from space.

I'm having a hard time thinking of three episodes in the entire run where that wasn't true.

Chloe dancing with Jimmy the spy ifs the first one that comes to mind.

To be fair Kristen Kreuk said the same thing and remained an additional season (she admitted later she did it to renegotiate her contract).

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

Forgive me for those that really like this show, but I think they are beating a dead horse now. They are driving this show into the ground, and not in a good way. It is impossible to believe that Clark would not be superman by now, let alone not being able to fly, and that there would still be such strong ties to Smallville. You can't keep him a teenager forever. I think this series is going to fizzle out. One or two more seasons is really pushing it. Charmed also suffered from this, the CW extended it way past its prime, and it ended with a whimper. I think Smallville will share the same fate.
