“Smallville” Season 8, Episode 6, “Prey”


         
   

Here’s the synopsis from the CW for the next new episode of "Smallville":

Clark (Tom Welling) looks into a recent attack in a theater that may be the work of a serial killer. Suspecting it could be someone who is meteor-infected, he demands that Chloe (Allison Mack) release the names of the people she is counseling at the Isis Foundation, which causes a rift between the friends.

Davis (Sam Witwer) fears that his blackouts could mean that he is the serial killer and collects evidence that may implicate him. Fearing the worst, he confesses his suspicions to Chloe.

Erica Durance, Aaron Ashmore and Cassidy Freeman also star.

Michael Rohl directed the episode written by Brian Peterson & Kelly Souders.

 

   
   

 
   
         
         

“Smallville”, Season 8, Episode 4, “Instinct”

   

 

   
   

Here’s the CW’s official description of the episode:

DC COMICS CHARACTER MAXIMA SETS HER SIGHTS ON CLARK(—-wooowooo!)

Tess (Cassidy Freeman) and her team perform tests on Clark’s (Tom Welling) crystal that she had retrieved from the arctic, causing it to send a beam of light into the universe. This triggers the arrival of Maxima (guest star Charlotte Sullivan), a queen from the planet Almerac, who is searching for her soulmate, who she believes sent the signal.

 
   

 

Unfortunately, Maxima’s power is too great for mortal men and her kiss kills them. The seductive Maxima arrives in Metropolis and begins her search, starting with Jimmy (Aaron Ashmore).

Allison Mack and Erica Durance also star. James Conway directed the episode written by Turi Meyer & Al Septien. 

         
   

 

   

“So, Jimmy..What’s Happenin?”

   

 

Aaron Ashmore talks to BuddyTV about his character this season on "Smallville"

   
         
   

 
   
         
   

Aaron decribes how he and Jimmy have a few characteristics in common and also how they differ. At the end of the clip, Aaron also sends a message out to his twin brother Shawn (who plays Iceman in the X-Men movies). Go DC!

 

   

Erica Durance (Lois Lane) talking about this season of Smallville

         
   

In a recent interview, Erica Durance talks Superman mythology and the direction of Smallvile this season. Also, a petition to get Tom Welling in tights…um..ok..we’ll see I suppose. So will he fly this season? More importantly will the season fly with the audience…again we’ll see.

 

   
   

 
   
         
         

Will Superman ever “fly” again??!

   

 

James Marsden, who played Cyclops in the X-Men movies and the boyfriend of Lois Lane in Superman Returns, explains why he thinks Superman didn’t fly with the next generation of movie goers.

   
         
   

 
   
         
   

He basically believes Superman’s fundamental flaw is that he’s too wholesome and too "whitebread" compared to Batman or Wolverine (whose characters are agreeably edgyer and darker than Superman.)

 

If you ask me, and I know you didn’t, Superman just needs to face some enemies who truly challenge him physically and mentally. What ever they plan to do with the franchise, I hope they don’t try to change the character too much to appeal to this so-called next generation of movie goers. All they need is a great story line, lots of action, and not to stray too far from the original mythology. I still am worried about where they’ll take the next installment.

 

Tell us what you think about Superman Returns and the future of the franchise..Is he going to "fly" again??

 

Put your two cents in here!

   

“Smallville”, Season 8, Episode 2, “Plastique”

               
 
 
 
 
 
 
               

DC COMICS CHARACTER PLASTIQUE BLASTS INTO Metropolis; DAVIS BLOOME ARRIVES IN SMALLVILLE — It’s Clark’s (Tom Welling) first day at the Daily Planet with Lois (Erica Durance), and the pair are immediately thrown together on a story when a bus explodes outside the office. Clark rescues Bette (guest star Jessica Parker Kennedy), a young girl who bonds with Chloe (Allison Mack) over their shared meteor abilities, but Bette is hiding a big secret. Paramedic Davis Bloom (Sam Witwer) arrives in Metropolis and is drawn to Chloe.

Superman Reboot?! (More like a ‘boot’ in the collective asses of Superman fans)


 

 

Well, If you haven’t heard by now they’re probably going to reboot Superman. I hadn’t reported it until now because I was in a state of denial, but it looks like it’s really going to happen. This means a new cast of characters (most likely) and an even farther release date. (*sigh*)

 

However, in an interview with Fresh Ink’s Blair Butler, comic book author Mark Millar said he’d like to make a trilogy of films for this re-booted Superman series, and it might happen. Millar’s vision for a new Superman:

 

"I’ve had this plan for like 10 years for a big three-picture Superman thing, like a Lord of the Rings epic, starting over from scratch again with a seven-hour Superman story. One to be released each year." Millar said.

 

Millar says there’s nothing firm yet, but he hopes to get word over the next few weeks. The might start shooting next Summer!
