Comic-Con: Smallville panel report

by Julia Ward, posted Jul 28th 2007 10:56PM

The Smallville panel was a hot Comic-Con ticket for one reason and one reason only - Supergirl. We got our first glimpse of Supergirl in action with some preview scenes from Smallville's upcoming season. She was blonde, hot and had the gift of flight.

Phil Morris (aka Martian Manhunter), who will be back next season along with old and new Justice League members, officially distinguished himself as both a comics fan and easily the most articulate panelist of the Comic-Con. He should get a special benevolent actor award.

Green Arrow will be back next season, but not until mid-season. The first of next season's arcs belongs to Supergirl and Bizarro Clark. And, round about episode four, you can expect to see Lois & Clark's Dean Cain as a baddie.

The one other tidbit of news to come out of the panel, aside from some action figure prototypes, was the sad news for fanboys and girls that Bruce Wayne will not be written into the show. It's "never going to happen." Never. Warner Bros. put the kibosh on that idea. Wonder Woman isn't likely to put in an appearance either, but they've promised to keep trying. Seriously, though, forget Wonder Woman and Batman, where are the Wonder Twins and Gleek?

I know it was a joke, but I'm thinking about the Wonder Twins and Gleek will appear on "Smallville." I thought it would be hard to do -- the new characters created for the "Superfriends" appear to be controlled (or accessible) by Hanna Barbara. That's why only original Superfriends (like the Wonder Twins and Apache Chief) appear on Adult Swim shows like "Harvey Birdman." "Robot Chicken" gets a pass in using any character it wants because it's satire.

However, both DC Comics and Hanna Barbara are owned by Time Warner. The rules between how these sibling subsidiaries cooperate are a little confusing.

I don't watch Smallville (anymore, I stopped a long time ago) but I always worried they might show Bruce Wayne some day. I'm glad they won't. If anyone's wondering why, I just don't want to imagine what they would do the character's image.

As for this Supergirl. Can any of the viewers tell me? In the show is the Supergirl character actually older than Clark? Because the actress seems to look older than Tom Welling.
