There are no plans for a spinoff now...not that I am aware of...I thought Blue Beetle would have been cool or even a whole Teen Titans series...CW was exploring a Raven series...but I guess that didn't pan out...not to say we won't see something fall 2012.
Teen Titans and Blue Beetle with the teen angst treatment? We've seen enough of that, I think.

Teen angst is what CW does. If you don't like it don't watch the channel.

Says the network executive. I hear ya, but I would also prefer my DC heroes not be a bunch of brooding, emotional 90210 wannabes.

Yeah I would prefer my heroes to be the way they are in the comics, unfortunately that isn't always the case, and if you are going to have your shows on the CW you can expect a level of angst with them.

totally agree with you on that, they kept smallville with in the realms of comics these last few seasons. and especially with jsa movie which was fantastic and done really well. I watch only hand full of shows on cw and smallville was my all time favorite show. espcially after season 5. the only thing I would've like to have seen was a batman or a young bruce wyane but oh well.

Not sure of anyone here reads TWOP, or the recaps they do/did for Smallville but here's their recap for "Finale."

I know they tried a spinoff with Aquaman and they also considered one called The Graysons.

Kind of makes me glad that they never used Bruce...because they would have turned him into a depressed wuss who would begin to question if "the mission" was the right path for him to follow.
Hasn't that been a plot point for nearly every Batman movie, though, including The Dark Knight?

Remember when Batman cried like a little bitch in The Dark Knight?

"Sniff, Sniff. She was going to wait for me, Alfred."

Yeah, for about 2 minutes. Then he got his shit together and kicked some arse.

True, but it was the capstone scene from the rest of the movie that had Bruce angsting over Rachael.

And yet that final quarter of the film still contained a good 99.9% less angst than your average Smallville episode.

Nolan angst and CW angst are two different kinds of angst Broc. One is tolerable, the other is not
