'Stargirl' And 'Hawkman' Coming to 'Smallville'!

The Justice Society of America characters have been confirmed to appear on the show!

The Justice Society of America characters have been confirmed to appear on the show!

 
One really cool thing about 'Smallville' is the variety of DC characters that so frequently appear on the show. Not only that, but the fact that they are occasionally written by guest writer Geoff Johns is pretty cool in itself. As you may already know, appearances by Justice Society of America characters will be made on the 'Smallville' television series! Brace
yourselves, ' Stargirl' and ' Hawkman' fans, because you'll be catching cameo appearances by these two superheroes very soon! According to a report by IGN, both the characters will be appearing on the hit television series in January. Actress Britt Irvin (Aliens In America) will be playing 'Stargirl' and Michael Shanks (Stargate SG-1) will be playing the winged hero, 'Hawkman.' Additionally. we will also be seeing Doctor Fate played by actor Brent Stait (Stargate SG-1). 
 
 Are you looking forward to seeing these characters appear on 'Smallville'? Maybe now that Johns has made the effort to bring 'Hawkman' to television, we will be seeing ' Shayera' soon? You know, since he killed them both off in ' Blackest Night'! If you could choose any additional characters to appear on the television series, who would you like to see?

I'd like to see Bruce Wayne in the show. I stopped following sometime after season eight and they could have done some awesome episodes with him. He'd have to be played right. Like the Nolan movies character or Jeph Loeb's version. I think that would be awesome.

I was kinda thinking that this would be low-tech as far as special effects, but Dr. Fate, Hawkman and Stargirl. Johns is goin' big. I guess we probably won't see Jay Garrick (or will we since Bart used his alias?). I'm wondering if we will see Alan Scott, Ted Grant, or Wesley Dodds. Should be a cool episode...

Billy Batson before he becomes Captain Marvel

As cool as Stargirl is it slightly bothers me because Robin is the first young superhero. I guess in the Smallville Universe Batman shows up much later ( which bothers me). Should have used Jesse Quick.

Crap, now I have to suffer through another episode of Smallville.

I was really hoping to see Alan Scott and Jay Garrick.

I was kinda hoping for Vixen to show up but Stargirl and Hawkman are a good start.

So Hawkman (bet my right ball he wont show any wings)  and Stargirl...oh and DR Fate too... 
 
and where are Hal Jordan and Bruce Wayne? oh, that's right... NOWHERE!!!  Too bad...i think Bruce, Hal and Barry deserve a Cameo MORE than any other DC Character... but thats WARNER for ya! =)

This is really cool but I still want Batman on the show.

Wow this is great news. Hawkman and Dr.Fate are personal favorites of mine. Shame that Alan Scott and Jay Garrick won't be in it though. Though I kind of find Shanks to be a bit small to play Hawkman. Kevin Sorbo was always a personal choice for me to be Hawkman. 
 
I was just thinking today that Captain Marvel would be such a nice idea to bring him on a guest spot on the show. Maybe help boast the movie a little bit faster into production.

Batman and Captain Marvel should definitely show up on Smallville.

There is a bat embargo and a Green lantern Embargo that forbids Smallville and CW to use there characters. Same goes for Wonder Woman since they are already movies about them taking place. I have no idea why DC/WB won't allow them to use it. But it is what it is at this point.. ANything GL, Anything in the batman family, and wonder woman stories are not allowed in Smallville. There allowed to make small mentions of Gotham City but can never actually travel there either. (on camera)  
 
But this news Ecxcites me :) Dr. Fate, Hawkman (I am sure it will be the carter version) and stargirl :D

Two SG-1 actors cameoing in the same show? Fantastic! I'll be sure to tune in! 
 
Daniel Jackson playing Hawkman? Love it!!

Woooo!
I'd love to see Stargirl   :)
 
the actress looks good and thank god they're keeping her blonde

I would love to see Bruce come on the show but alas it wont happen thanks to warner bros stupid policies.

Posted by Satyrquaze

Michael Shanks! Awesome.
Posted by RedK

This will be cool to bad that theirs no Alan Scott, would of been cool to see Clark metion that his dad was a fan of his like in the comic.

Posted by Darkhawk77

I'm excited.
Posted by Koeil

Shanks will be Hawkman BADASS

Posted by 04nbod

I've come to the conclusion that even if DC lift the embargo Batman should not appear. He's too big for the show.

yea i follow it closely and all though i dont expect to ever see him, i think it would bee cool (since they already are talking about a season 10) if he came in they way they first met in Superman: Animated Adventures but with out the full blown all out batman suit. He can have an out fit but i think it should be him from batman begins before he gets taken in by Ra's Al Ghul, just fighting street thugs and taking on gangs. 
 
Even if they dont have him, they could have shipping containers, boxes and maybe even Lucia Fox pass through. Just something they represents him in the show in at least one episode, kinda like they way most boxes you see have Luthorcorp or Star labs on it even though those characters might not be in that episode.

i think they should of had Jay garrick and Allen Scott in the show at least but i understand why, i bet the green figures coming from the ring would look to fake (LIKE THE HORRIBLE INTURPRITATION OF DOOMSDAY) and they have already had a flash character so its understandable to me why they wouldnt have either
Posted by Watch Dog

 I'm very excited about the Hawkman episode I will defiantly be watching this and I hope he has some wings but I doubt it.

Lord knows I hate Hawkman. So emo! Hawk Girl was way better.

Smallville is the greatest show ever created, and they should have the  Green Lantern or his alter ego appear on  Smallville.

Black Lightning. Wanna see him, since he is a Metropolis resident.

I would rather see the comic book version instead.
