Rumor says fans pulled aside to view Superman's suit - Comic-Con Report

Will Superman get a shiny new suit in the new season of Smallville? Comic-Con folks say so.A persistent rumor around the Comic-Con International floor says a major television network is abducting random innocent people and forcing them to look at a man's intimate garments.

It seems CW's Smallville series will finally go full-on Superman this year and knock off all of this Clark Kent adolescent, romantic angst nonsense. And Superman needs a super suit to match his new gig. CW reps are reportedly pulling random faces out of the crowd to go behind the scenes and get a glimpse of the mythical outfit.

The trouble is they're more likely to pick a young lady or a bright-eyed kid out of the crowd to see the cool stuff -- not a 6'3", 250 lb. lummox with a press badge. I asked around the Warner Bros. and CW floor presentations and got the playful brush-off.

If this rumor pans out, it's a clever kind of on-site viral marketing -- a way to get fans talking about a show that's been on the air for nine years as if it's fresh, breaking news.

The big Smallville panel and press conference isn't until Sunday. So, confirmation of all this might have to wait until then.
