The kids love their “Smallville”, currently chugging along toward its series finale (who knew it would last ten seasons when it first started?) so they’ll probably be saving up some money to by this: Warner Home Video has put out the cover art and specs for their upcoming “Smallville: The Complete Season” DVD box set. (I guess they’re saving the Blu-ray release for a future date.) Check them out below. After 10 incredible seasons, Smallville: The Complete Series will arrive on DVD this fall. This ultimate collector’s set for the ultimate fan features over 192 hours of content – including all 218 episodes, over five hours of newly added special features such as an unaired, never-before-seen Superboy pilot from 1961, a 90-minute series retrospective with all new interviews, the 2010 final Comic-Con panel and more!

Hey, kids, look whose heading down the aisle in the May 13 series finale of the CW’s long-running “Smallville”! Yup, it looks like ol Clark Kent (Tom Welling) and Lois Lane (Eric Durance) tie the know in the two-hour finale airing next month. Plus, Clark shows off the ice fortress to Lois. Bet she’s already claiming the biggest rooms for her shoes. Check out some promo images from the show below. According to TVGuide, the finale will also feature human punching bag Green Arrow aka Ollie (Justin Hartley) as the best man and Chloe (Allison Mack) as the matron of honor. click to enlarge
Some people on the Interwebs are concluding that this latest poster for “Smallville” means Tom Welling’s Superman will eventually put away that snazzy trenchcoat of his and finally slip on the familiar blue and red tights with the big ol “S” on his chest. Me, I think they just put this thing together cause it’s, you know, shiny and whatnot. By the way, “Destiny is Now”? Sounds like a bad Japanese translation. “Smallville” is currently in its 10th and final season. Catch it on the CW before it flies off into that great blue sky called cancellation. click on the pic to enlarge
Hey, remember when the CW tried to make a “Smallville” version of Robin from Batman and Robin fame called “The Graysons”? Yeah, that didn’t go very well, and was dumped because the suits didn’t want it to tarnish what Christopher Nolan was doing over at his “Batman Begins” corner of the DC-verse. So, with “Smallville” in its tenth and final season (Superman doesn’t age, but Tom Welling does), what will the CW do to hold onto their superhero/teen demo brought in by “Smallville”? How about a new TV series based on the half-human, half-demon character Raven of the Teen Titans fame? Variety reports that that’s exactly what the CW and DC are planning as a replacement show once “Smallville” flies off into the sunset in his shiny blue and red suit. The CW is looking to adapt “Raven,” a half-demon also known as Rachel Roth, into a series. Diego Gutierrez, who most recently served as co-exec VP on “V,” is… Continue Reading »
Promo images from the 8th episode of “Smallville’s” 10th and final season, called “Abandoned”, which features the introduction of Granny Goodness (who is decidedly not so good) and her Female Furies into the Clark-verse. Can Darkseid be far behind? Probably not. Via Splashpage. TERI HATCHER GUEST STARS AS ELLA LANE; DC COMICS’ CHARACTERS GRANNY GOODNESS (CHRISTINE WILLES) AND HARRIET (GUEST STAR LINDSAY HARTLEY) APPEAR — Lois (Erica Durance) finds a video made for her by her mother, Ella Lane (Hatcher), before she died. After watching the tape, Lois makes a drastic decision about her relationship with Clark (Tom Welling) that takes her to the Fortress, where she comes face to face with Jor-El and Lara. Meanwhile, Tess has a nightmare involving herself as a child and a music box. Upon awakening, she finds the music box in Luthor mansion and sets out to find out who planted it there. Clark accompanies her to an orphanage run by Granny Goodness (guest… Continue Reading »
Like Supergirl? Like actress Laura Vandervoort as Supergirl? Then you should dig these promo images from “Smallville’s” upcoming third episode of its 10th and final season, titled, appropriately enough, “Supergirl”. This week’s episode is “Shield”, which if you’re a comic book fan, will introduce Cat Grant and super assassin Deadshot to the “Smallville” universe. Carter Hall aka Hawkman (a guest spot by Michael Shanks) also returns. “Supergirl” airs next week, October 8, 2010. But who can wait? Get a load of Laura Vandervoort in “disguise” with dark hair, then in almost the full Supergirl outfit.
Two preview clips from this week’s upcoming “Smallville” Season 10 premiere episode, “Lazarus”. The season premiere picks up where the finale left off. Lois finds Clark’s lifeless body and removes the blue kryptonite enabling him to heal himself. However, Lois sneaks away before Clark fully awakens in order to protect his secret. Meanwhile, Chloe is desperate to find Oliver, so she turns to an unlikely source for answers. Jonathan returns to the Kent Farm with a message for Clark, and Tess awakens in a LuthorCorp lab. “Lazarus” airs this Friday.
Season 10 of the CW’s “Smallville” kicks off later this week on Friday, September 24 with the episode “Lazarus”. As you can see from the promo pics below, the episode finds Clark Kent (Tom Welling) back at the farm, where he gets a visit from a familiar face; meanwhile, that wacky journalist Lois Lane is up to her fashionable pants in trouble again. Oh, Lois, you wacky journalist, you. The season premiere picks up where the finale left off. Lois finds Clark’s lifeless body and removes the blue kryptonite enabling him to heal himself. However, Lois sneaks away before Clark fully awakens in order to protect his secret. Meanwhile, Chloe is desperate to find Oliver, so she turns to an unlikely source for answers.

Check out a new, nearly 2 minutes long promo for “Smallville’s” 10th and final season, which chronicles the adventures of Clark Kent and his many loves throughout the previous 9 seasons, leading to the upcoming 10th season. Who knew Clark got so much tail? I guess saving the day over and over again has its benefits. And oh yeah, the promo also gives you a brief, 1-second look at the classic Superman suit, which I guess means he’ll finally wear the darn thing by the time the season is up. “Smallville” returns Friday, September 24, 2010. The suit:
POTENTIAL SPOILERS AHOY! The CW has released the official description for “Smallville” season 10 for those of you still watching this aging dinosaur. Will he finally put on the cape? Will Lois Lane finally figure out Clark is the same guy running around town saving her ass? Will Green Arrow finally stop acting like a glorified human punching bag? So many questions, so little time… The end of the beginning starts here. Taking flight in its tenth and final season, this modern retelling of a hero’s legendary origins continues to blend realism, action, heart and humor as Clark Kent (Tom Welling) soars toward claiming his birthright. Clark has emerged from his darkest hour, only to find the path to his destiny blocked by ghosts from the past – shadows in the present tempting Clark toward the darkness at every turn. Despite insurmountable odds, is Clark strong enough to step into the light and claim his rightful place as Earth’s mightiest… Continue Reading »
Here’s your first look at the lovely Laura Vandervoort, back on the set of “Smallville’s” upcoming 10th season as Kara aka Supergirl from TV Guide. It looks like Supergirl is in her mild-mannered disguise in this pic with Tom Welling’s Clark Kent. And oh yeah, you’ll see her in the “full costume” (or close to it), too. Says Vandervoort about her short but sweet return to “Smallville”: When I found out this could be my last episode, I thought it would be great to see a quick glimpse of her in the uniform before she takes off. You can get a glimpse of that from the pics below (via Spoiler TV).
The CW has released the “Smallville” Season 10 teaser trailer that they showed recently over at Comic Con. It teases the return of Supergirl (Laura Vandervoort, yow) and Superman finally becoming Superman. Plus, more boring Lois Lane junk, cause kids seem to love that, plus the Justice League ala Hawkman and his funky, “Oh come on, it doesn’t look like he can move in that thing AT ALL” costume show up for a laugh or two. The tenth (and mercifully final) season of “Smallville” commences on the CW Friday, September 24, 2010.
Sunday is usually the “slow” day at the Comic Con, but one of the shows that usually does their thing on Sundays is the CW’s “Smallville” and “Supernatural”. Both shows were on hand today, and from the “Smallville” panel, we learned that the 10th (and final) season will feature the arrival of Darkseid as the season’s main villain. Also, Justin Hartley, who plays the human punching bag on the show aka Green Arrow, will also return for at least 17 episodes. Meanwhile, TVGuide tweeted that “Chloe gives herself up in exchange for Ollie’s freedom”, whatever that means. It will apparently involve the fate of Dr. Fate, if you will. I haven’t really been keeping up with “Smallville”, so maybe that will mean something to you loyal fans out there. But the big news, of course, is the reveal that Darkseid will be visiting Metropolis before the show’s final season is over. Let’s hope the writers handle it much better than… Continue Reading »
With the end fast approaching, it looks like the producers of the CW’s aging superhero show “Smallville” is bringing back some fan favorites to close out the show in grand style. Among the old castmembers expected back for the show’s 10th (and probably final) season is Laura Vandervoort, who played Supergirl on the show, and can currently be seen sliming it up something hot in the new “V”. Unfortunately Vandervoort’s hot in hot pants superhero will only show up for one measly episode, tentatively scheduled for around October. She’ll be joining John Schneider, Clark Kent’s papa, who will also be returning for a couple of episodes. Let’s just hope Superman finally gets his shit together before Season 10 wraps. Honestly, watching him still running around trying to decide if he should wear a cape or not is getting a tad tedious.
If you’re one of those people wondering how it is that “Smallville” can keep going and going and going and never seem to get anywhere, apparently the CW kinda feels the same way: the network has made it prett much official that “Smallville’s” upcoming 10th season (yes, this show has been on for ten years, go figure) will also be its last. Fans of “Smallville” needn’t be so glum. Ten years is a hell of a run for any show, much less genre shows, which never really seem to get a lot of respect from the networks. “Smallville” will remain in its Friday night time slot, where it has thrived despite Friday generally being known as the Graveyard Shift to many TV viewers. Come this fall, “Smallville” will also find itself with a new dance partner in “Supernatural”, which the CW will be moving to Fridays for its sixth (and possibly final) season. The network will slot their new action-adventure… Continue Reading »
