I know Time Warner owns DC & Smallville but for some reason I heard this rumor that DC willing not release the names of certain characters onto Smallville. For example we might not ever see Batman or BRUCE WAYNE on the series. The idea of Wayne Enterprises coming into the picture or being teased about it would be a great way to hype up fan in the DC Universe.
Another example is THE FLASH, I heard that is the reason why they call him "IMPULSE" on the series right now. Smallville doesn't have the rights to those names? If its a code name thing then I would love to suggest "Vigilante" for Batman.
What do you fans think about it so far?????
