Re: Official Smallville Season Eight Spoiler Thread

I'm pretty amazed considering all the shit they gave the Legion cartoon over the use of the Superman brand in the Final days that they had to dump the man of yesterday and replace Kal-El with a clone.

But then I guess Smallville has more money to throw around, but it's still hypocrisy... Oh! That's hilarious "i had an idea and I pitched it" ... That's ridiculous. The legion coming to Smallville must have been pitched a million times and suppressed and rejected all those times because... Johns had the same idea as every one else and for soem reason he wasn't smited. Smote?

Re: Official Smallville Season Eight Spoiler Thread

It appears that some of the legalities surrounding Superboy have been resolved. Dan Didio revealed recently that Superboy Prime who was renamed Superman Prime can be called Superboy Prime again! I was hoping that some kind of announcement would be made about the Superboy legal issues at Comic Con. But perhaps the Legion appearing on Smallville is another sign.

Re: Official Smallville Season Eight Spoiler Thread

That huge news aside, the panel has to have been one of the single best hours of the four-day Comic-Con extravaganza. With a jocular cast and recurring jokes with the audience, the laughter was non-stop — and so were the spoilers. Here are the highlights:

• As reported previously, Season 8 is all about Clark's destiny as Superman. He joins the "Daily Planet" and uses his new gig as a way to find people in need. He also starts to realize that he may need a double identity to truly evolve into Superman.

To that end, exec producer Brian Peterson says that the show will hold to its original "no tights" rule, but he would not comment on the "no flights" restriction.

• Behind-the-scenes changes are to come, too: Comic writer Geoff Johns will be writing a Legion of Superheroes episode of the show, and Allison Mack may have just shaken on a deal to direct an episode. When pressed about her plans, Mack started off with a diplomatic answer, but one of the panelists said, "Why don't we make it official?" Kidding or not, it would be hard to back out of the public pact.

• Justin Hartley says that the Green Arrow will be struggling with why he's doing what he's doing, while the show will be exploring the origin of the Green Arrow.

• Mack's Chloe will also be doing some struggling of her own, and there's trouble in paradise ahead for her relationship with Jimmy. Mack says that Chloe will be finding some independence this season, though, and she'll maybe even have some new powers to show off — but no details on those yet!

• And might new Smallville arrival Tess Mercer share a smooch with any of the resident studs? Cassidy Freeman titillated the audience by saying she'd like to see her character kiss Chloe.

• Finally, of course, there was a long preview of scenes from the new season. With the introduction of at least two more heroes from DC Comics, the action is ratcheted up, especially as Clark starts to come into his own. In short, expect love, loss, mega-action and more of the Superman mythology to unfold.

"Clark comes into his own"?

He's been out of his own for the last 7 years?

Re: Official Smallville Season Eight Spoiler Thread

so any guesses as to who the "two more heroes from DC Comics," will be? unless they are counting guys & girls from the Legion (which seems like it could be expensive to do in live action)

Re: Official Smallville Season Eight Spoiler Thread

The original 3 legionaries that met Superboy had telepathic, magnetic and electrical superpowers. That's well with in the budget. Although, if they're going to bring back laura for anything , then it has to be to fall in love with that green bastard Brainiac V.

Would it be too much to ask for Green Lantern and Hawkman?

though green lanterns Cabal needs more girls.

The thing I like about Hawkman is that his primary super power is to hit people int he face with a huge spikey ball of metal as large as those heads and send their teeth flying for hundreds of feet.

Okay, that got my attention as well.

Despite some early reservations, I'm holding off passing any judgement on Season 8 until I actually see some of it.

Re: Official Smallville Season Eight Spoiler Thread

Well, I do recall that "the Flash" had come here from the Future to seduce Chloe... And "Bart" was an honorary legionary... Then of course in another book Impulse jumped off a roof thinking that the "Flash" (Costume changer) ring he had just been presented with was a Legionary Flight Ring.
