Smallville Welcomes Deadshot and Hawkgirl

In the flesh!

 Is that you, Hawkgirl?

The wings are going to flap and the bullets are going to fly in this upcoming season of SMALLVILLE as both Hawkgirl and Deadshot’s appearances have been confirmed by Splash Page. Respectively, the characters will be played by Iranian-Canadian beauty queen Sahar Biniaz and former-OC regular Bradley Stryker. Seeing the characters mentioned together like this really makes me think that their pairing would make for a truly bizarre issue of THE BRAVE & THE BOLD.

These final seasons of SMALLVILLE are really starting to remind me of JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED, as it’s looking like the producers had to keep everything relatively understated at the beginning, but now that they know they’re finishing, so they’re pulling out every DCU character they’ve ever wanted to use. In addition to these two, viewers will also see Darkseid, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle and the return of both Hawkman and Supergirl.  I still think it’s strange how this throng of costumed characters will appear in this show’s continuity before Superman’s debut, but what do I know? == TEASER ==

It’s funny that Deadshot’s finally getting his… well… shot at on screen, this way. I still say that the character ought to be one of the villains featured in BATMAN 3. Out of all the baddies in Batman’s rogues gallery, he’s one of the handful that could work in the movies’ realistic, understated milieu while still keeping enough of his gimmick to make him interesting. Who knows? Tom Welling may never get to play Superman in the movies, but Stryker (who, by the way, has to have the most role-appropriate name ever) could wind up squaring off against Christian Bale in the theater.

Awesome!

I'm guessing that Hawkman will be searching for her in this season and I'm guessing somewhere in the Middle East from what I saw in the promos and the actress they chose. As for why the producers are putting all these characters in the last season, I think they are trying to find a potential spin-off. I wouldn't mind seeing a spin-off about the Hawks.

Love the choice for Hawkgirl especially her being part persian :D  
 
Not crazy about the actor they got for Deadshot. Doesn't really look like him to me. 
 
It's great Blue Beetle and Booster will be in it. Though I think it should have not just the new Blue Beetle but the old Blue Beetle (Ted Kord) as well. Show the friendship between him and Booster. 
 
Still not crazy on how they're gonna do Darkseid though. With him not really being like the Darkseid in the comics from what they said. If he's gonna look like Voldemont (I'm guessing) , however you spell  his name. They really screwed the pooch on that one.

@Bruce Vain:  Darkseid's been in human bodies before. It'll be interesting to see how they pull it off. It'll be better than Galactus from the Fantastic 4 Movie...that's for sure.

Wow, they really are trying to raise the final season to the heavens with all these appearances. Now I'm just curious about the suits those characters will and if appear with. Especially about Booster Gold and now Deadshot. Cause we know how Hawkgirl is gonna look like,since we had her "mate" in the show before, and I doubt if we get much of Darkseid, maybe a little in the end. 
About Blue Beetle though. Is he supposed to be Ted Kord or not? Assuming he's appearing together with Booster. Cause I remember someone mentioned in the Smallville board that Geoff is gonna use the version of Beetle's suit as seen in that live action teaser?

"Miss Tourism Queen International"? Wow, they have pageants for everything. There needs to be a Comic Vine Pageant!......not really.
 
I haven't watched this show in a loooong time. It could be interesting to see how they would do Darkseid's Omega Beams.

@Nick-SV(ril): From what I know he will use the Jaime Reyes version but I don't know if he will use the suit from the teaser.

              I heard they were gonna use both Jaime Reyes and Ted Kord as the Blue Beetle.

@Nick-SV(ril): @NightFang: I think they are gonna hint about Ted's existence.

             I think they'll show Ted in flashbacks with Booster Gold.

             Indeed it would be.

Really looking forward to this season. I hate when shows that have been on forever just fade away, at least Smallville is going out with a bang.

i cant wait...i really wanna see Booster Gold. Deadshot will be awesome as well. And then with Darkseid coming at the end....this season is gonna be great

Posted by Eyz

Well, I hope Hawkgirl on screen will look great~
I'm a big fan of the Hawks! (specially since Geoff Johns reboot)

I really hope it's Ted. I think the Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle is one of the best new characters in years, but given that he's paired with Booster it has to be Ted.

I can't wait for this season to start, just love it.

I got to say it like this as long the lady ain't all T&A & can actually act I'm good

The kid from The O.C. you say? Intriguing

Okay, is it just me or does anyone else think that Batman's about to show up on Smallville?! I mean first they have an episode called "Lazarus"; which makes me think of Lazarus Pits (which would explain how Jonathan Kent comes back....and Lazarus Pits are of course something that Ra's al Ghul uses. And NOW, Deadshot's about to be on the show too?! COME ON! Let's get that World's Finest team-up on Smallville!!

Posted by Son_of_Magnus
@The Avenging Angel: Lazarus has more meanings than Lazarus Pits, Lazarus is based off the man Lazarus who Jesus resurrected from the dead in The Gospel of John it refers to rebirth and renewal.

              Yeah but it would be cooler if it was both of them.

I'm surprised at Darkseid showing up. He's the only character so far that seems blatantly outside of the Smallville norm. 
 
Also worth mentioning, Michael Shanks who played Daniel Jackson in all the Stargate movies and TV shows is gonna be Hawkman. I'm pretty excited:D

Edited by caesarsghost

Remind me to watch the Darkseid episode- I want to see how they handle the best villain ever. I know speaking in superlatives is often discouraged, but come on, Darkseid is amazing.  
 
And the Reyes Blue Beetle should be good... dont get me wrong, Kord was great, but I was introduced to the Beetle mainly as Reyes.

Deadshot was already in Batman: Gotham Knight. It'd be pointless to be in Batman 3.

Posted by RedK

how can Hawk girl appear shes supposed to dead, unless this is another reincarnation and she can only remember some stuff, wonder if BB and Booster are going to in the same episode or if booster has traveled back to supermans past. all in all this looks like it's going to be an awesome season

Edited by darkking

i like deadshot  but   what   about cyborg superman also parasite and riot  , forgot one more alan scott .
Posted by ForbushBug

Looking at a few other Sahar pics, I think she'd make a pretty good Wonder Woman if that ever gets out of developmental hell.

Smallville's last season strategy:  pull in as many DCU characters and see which one sticks.  Develop new show about that character.  End transmission. 
 
I stopped watching Smallville around season 7 or so....whichever one was before Doomsday showed up on the show.  Sorry, but that killed it for me, no matter how well they worked him into the show or not.

Wait, what? So because a character was used in a Batman book, it can't be used in the movies?

@Pizza Time: Sorry I meant Batman: Gotham Knight. The animated movie that served as the story in between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

I don't know dude - I was at the panel and from what they were saying didn't sound all that enticing to me. It sounded more like he's gonna be more like a dark entity then being a ruler of another planet. Especially from when I watched the trailer they played. I had high hopes they were gonna make look like Darkseid from the comics like they did with Doomsday.
Posted by goldenkey

I can't wait to see how they do Darkseid they did such a bad job with Doomsday.

cool

Posted by Bats

Been waiting for Deadshot to make an appearance.
He's one of the coolest, most interesting DC characters out there.
Definitely can't wait.

First Brainiac 5, New Gods (Granny Goodness, Dessad, Glorious Godfrey, and Darkseid), Rick Flag, Booster Gold, Ted and Jaime/Blue Beetle, now DEADSHOT AND HAWKGIRL? Wow. I guess that the show will end will a uch bigger bang than I thought.

Posted by LP

IT'S A BIG ONE! Can't wait, It's gonna work. The only thing I'm wondering now is how Hawkgirl will be involved if she was stated as being killed in action back in the Society's days during the JLA episode.

Posted by SpiderMew

A beauty queen? Really? Does she have any acting exprence or did she get the job for her tits?
Posted by roxamilli

This show has been on for such a long (since i was in elementary school and now i'm a sophmore) time! but it's kind of cool for these characters to be introduced even though it's ending. But it's not like we don't know that Clark and Lois will get married or something and he'll finally put on the Superman costume.
