Geoff Johns' Smallville Episodes Combined Into Movie 'Event'
Ever since it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con that Geoff Johns was returning to write two episodes of Smallville, we've all been eagerly waiting. According to Michael Ausiello at EW, those two episodes, "Society" and "Legends" will not be airing separately. The CW is planning on packaging the Justice Society episodes as a two-hour movie event on January 29. The episodes are set to feature Hawkman, Stargirl and Dr. Fate.
The CW execs felt they could "get more mileage out of combining them." That does make some sense. It feels a little gimmicky but by pumping this up as an "event," they're more likely to attract more viewers. I'm sure we can expect to see some major promos for it as it approaches. There's also the option of releasing this on DVD or Blu-ray the week after it airs (like FOX recently did with the two-hour event for 24 last November).
Do you like the idea of a Smallville 'event'? Are you looking forward to Geoff Johns' two episodes?
I always like the idea of bringing in characters from the DC universe, seeing how they translate into live action so I would love to see this...but to be honest I still haven't started watching Season 9...I own all the first eight seasons but I need to watch Season 8 first to refresh my memory on what's going on...it's all so different now
Great! This is all the Smallville I was going to watch anyway and now they bundled it all up in one easy to watch package.I know Micheal Shanks is Hawkman but does anyone know the actors for Stargirl and Dr. Fate?
Their names are Brittney Irvin (Stargirl) and Brent Stait (Dr. Fate)
