Even More Smallville: Absolute Justice Clips

In case you're having trouble waiting until Friday...

I have to admit that the last thing I want to do is get excited over Smallville.  I don't have anything against the show but, as I've mentioned several times, the quality of the show fluctuates.  Some episodes are pretty good then sometimes we get clunkers.  I do like the idea of the upcoming Absolute Justice episode.  I like that we're going to see more actual "heroes" in the Smallville universe.  Then if you throw in the fact that Geoff Johns is writing...how can there not be any anticipation?   
 The two hour episode will be airing this Friday, February 5, on the CW.  We've seen some promos and images.  A couple more have popped up.  This first one isn't anything too spectacular featuring Chloe and Ollie
  

   
Nothing remarkable, right?  Now watch this second one featuring Clark, Hawkman and his...friend, Kent Nelson
  
   
I can't put my finger on it but that second clip is getting me a bit more excited.  What do you think?

Hawkman rules!!

Last year's Johns episode with the Legion of Super-Heroes was great. I expect Johns to give the JSA the same treatment. Can't wait for Friday!

Anywho, this looks sick! How can you NOT be excited about this?

Could someone enlighten me to where Batman figures (or not) in all this?

Posted by lostlantern13
@Omega Ray Jay: 

From the Smallville Wikia:

"Due to Batman's restarted film franchise, Bruce Wayne has not appeared on Smallville because the film division of Warner Bros (DC's parent company) is working with the character. When planning for a hopeful appearance in the early seasons, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar saw Bruce as a rival for Lana's affections, but when they were disallowed the use of the character, Bruce was replaced with Adam Knight. The creators of Smallville were actually thinking of making a Bruce Wayne TV series before the idea of a Superman-oriented show ever came about, but it was never realized. Alfred Gough recently said that an appearance of Bruce Wayne on the show is unlikely."

I'm entitled to my own opinion, as are you. 
As to being NOT excited - 'Chuck' has more action per episode than this. Fail. Maybe the fact Geoff Johns wrote the script will make it more tolerable.

Nice cant wait

This series has already lost his path long ago. And it gets worse over time. 
Please do not destroy more characters.

The Dr.Fate helmet knew that Clark was looking in the bag. The helmet looked like it was going to come out and zap Clark or something

             I think it did, making Clark look away from it or something.

AWESOME!

@vuki, of course we all have our own opinions but the positives heavily outweigh the negatives in here. And to judge the "action" and episode yet nobody here has seen it=fail. My opinon.

I don't think smallville has destroyed any characters. I think the show actually brings a lot to giving a realistic portrayal of many DC characters. Some characters may not have been perfect but they were not destroyed. And characters like Aquaman, the Wonder Twins, and Green Arrow, have only been enhanced. At least in my opinion...

I agree ^, if anything we see a more "reastic" perspective of the characters...instead of overly powered, ridiculous comicbook translations. I know some people want to see that but sometimes it's just too tough and no TV show has the budget to do those ridiculous elements that would be required if they did that.... 
 
Movies? Different story since they have higher budgets, but TV? No...they have a limit...that's what some fans have to realize. So I think you make a great point comic ^
