Quick hits from Smallville panel at Comic-Con
Tom Welling’s first appearance at Comic-Con was a hit, as a very full room cheered for the stars of Smallville at today’s Smallville panel at Comic-Con, moderated by Jeph Loeb. Callum Blue, Cassidy Freeman, Allison Mack, Justin Hartley, Erica Durance joined Welling on the panel, as did Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson.
Here are a few quick notes and impressions from the Smallville panel:
* Clark is finally in some version of a Superman suit, with a black shirt bearing the S-shield and a flowing black overcoat, in preview footage shown at the panel.
* Geoff Johns will write a Justice Society episode.
* Season premiere will touch on the flight issue.
* Green Arrow will be in more episodes this season, as will Lois Lane. Lois will be in 18 episodes.
* Lex is absolutely not dead.
* Tom Welling is directing two episodes this season; Allison Mack will also direct.
* A possible Green Arrow sidekick story is being explored.
* In the first eight episodes this season, we’ll see Green Arrow hit “rock bottom.”
* Smallville is moving to Fridays this fall, debuting Sept. 25. The DVD and Blu-ray of Season 8 hits Aug. 25.
