Post-Smallville, Will The CW Adapt More DC Characters?

When Smallville was coming to an end last year, The CW's former president Dawn Ostroff said they were looking at other potential DC Comics characters to adapt to TV – and word leaked about one character specifically they were working on, The Teen Titans' Raven .   We hadn't heard anything about Raven since though, and so I asked the CW's new president, Mark Pedowitz, about the potential for DC characters on the network when he spoke at the TCA (Television Critics Association) press tour today. When I brought up the Raven project, Pedowitz laughed that I knew more than him, as he was so new to the job.   Read More... http://tv.ign.com/articles/118/1186134p1.html?RSSwhen2011-08-04_112100&RSSid=1186134&utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+ignfeeds%2Ftv+%28IGN+TV%29

Clark Finally Dons the Superman Costume in the 'Smallville' Series Finale (VIDEO)

Fans of 'Smallville' (Fri., 8PM ET on The CW) have waited ten years for Clark Kent to don the classic blue-and-red costume. The creators had promised that their version of Clark would never fly, or wear the costume. But, perhaps when they said that they didn't expect the show to run for a decade. Nevertheless, Clark finally got over his insecurities and learned to embrace both sides of his heritage. As such, Jor-El presented him with the classic Superman costume while Darkseid helped him realize his ability to fly. http://www.tvsquad.com/2011/05/16/clark-superman-costume-smallville-series-finale-video/

We won't be offended!"Smallville" fans have been anticipating Lois and Clark's wedding for most of the final season -- but we never actually saw them say "I do" in Friday night's season-ending television event, titled simply, "Finale." Unfortunately, when you're a superhero, saving the world trumps even your own wedding.Luckily, we did get the chance to hear both Lois (Erica Durance) and Clark (Tom Welling) say their vows, which was incredibly special, particularly because without those vows, our destined duo may never have actually made it to the altar.
