Smallville: Is It Going Feature-Length? - Featured

Smallville will just never let up, won't it?


Then again, this bit of news is pretty different--much more different from recent talk about a jumping Metallo, a British Zod and another one of those possible spin-offs. This bit is a rumor, and while this is perhaps one of the sketchiest ones I've encountered in this life so far, there's a weird feeling that this might happen.


The folks at AICN have speculated that Smallville might be getting a television movie that will supplement the series' ninth season. Their source--a person they identify as "Yoda's Bitch", one who they call an "untested" source--spotted possible proof that this will happen, through some signage being prepared for The CW series' upcoming panel at the Comic-Con.


The signage says this: "Metropolis, Christmas 2010." It's written out in the same type that the Smallville logo uses, and behind it is a watermark of the Superman logo. The sign the source spotted also promotes the Smallville panel at the very bottom.


Again, AICN is just speculating all this. Consider that Smallville is reportedly ending its run in 2010, not after it's moved to Friday nights this coming fall. But they also have a pretty significant point: it's pretty hard to create a television movie in 18 months, considering that they'll still be shooting the ninth season of the show. But with recent news of Smallville casting a couple of villains, I'm imagining that they're going towards that direction, and maybe this alleged Metropolis project will finally see Tom Welling as Superman, costume and all.


Of course, nobody's officially confirming it. Maybe there'll be a big announcement this month. Who knows?

I think tv movie is a little bit of a misnomer. It could simply be as simple as a two hour episode that will serve as the series finale. In which case that would not be difficult to do. However, they could also do it be ending the series as usual and then do a small jump ahead in the timeline that would show clark actually becoming superman to wrap everything up nicely, in which case they dont have to end production then start it all up again just for the tv movie, it can be shot all together during the shooting of the season itself. As long as they end it right then I am all for whatever they want to do.

From what I remember reading is that Smallville was agreed to have a "no flight, no tights" policy. Meaning Clark would never be seen flying or wearing the classic tights on Smallville. They used the whole Kal-El flying because he was in control, not Clark, and they handled the matter of a costume reasonably well with the Red-Blue Blur thing, since only his blur is seen, his blue shirt and red jacket are fine.

I think a movie would be a good idea if they could end itwell and not just be a 2 hour long episode. i think they should start a spinoff with him becoming superman properly, learning to fly, getting his costume, they could call it something like 'Metropilis' to carry on a city name.
