Default Smallville Season 9

From Newsarama: Tom Welling Flying into Smallville Season 9?

Now, the possibility of a ninth season was in heavy doubt earlier this year, but with a return to the Superman mythos, including new exploration by Clark, the coming of Doomsday and soon The Legion of Superheroes, and of course, the best ratings the show has seen in the last few years, it appears season 9 is a go, and Tom Welling is ready to stay with the show.

The bigger question now is, where do they go from here? With the coming of The Legion, Clark will know with absolute certainty of his destiny as Superman. He’s now been in Metropolis primarily for a couple of years, and several characters from the DCU, including other heroes of the Justice League have already shown up (Green Arrow was even made a main character this season). And, of course, Tom Welling is himself over 30 now. The logical step would be to have him actively becoming Superman, as has been hinted this season, but would change the fundamental premise of the show and go against the show creators’ “No Tights, No Flights” credo. With their departure at the end of last season, however, it seems like the show may well be on its way to presenting a live action Superman on TV for the first time since 1997.

From AICN:
UPDATED!! Comic Con: No Cape For SMALLVILLE’s Superman Costume??
Confirming to you the Superman outfit for "Smallville" is real, there is a mad dash to a bunch of Warner reps happening right now.

But your previous report is slightly off --the suit makes its on-screen debut in the Season Nine premiere, which is called "Superman".

Does look good tho and is very much in line with smallville costumes. I kinda imagine it looking like superboys (kon-el) second custume.

* Season 9's theme is "Clark's darkest hour."

* Look for a season-long love triangle with Clark, Lois, and Red-Blue Blur.

* Chloe, still grieving over Jimmy's death, will immerse herself in all things Watchtowerish. Peterson also hinted at some tension for Chlark when she realizes she's no longer content just being his sidekick.

* We'll find out why Clark isn't flying in a scene with him and Jor-El (the returning Terence Stamp) in the season premiere.

* Footage of Brian Austin Green as Metallo will be unveiled at tomorrow's Con panel. As of now, he's on board for two episodes, but Peterson says they're hopeful he'll do more.

* The episode they're currently shooting (either 9.02 or 9.03) focuses on Oliver's downward spiral.

* Battlestar Galactica's Alessandro Juliani will reprise his role as Dr. Emil Hamilton for several episodes this season.

* Story-wise, Peterson is not approaching this season as Smallville's last.

* I saved the best for last: Peterson recently had dinner with Michael Rosenbaum. Interpret as you like.

From Newsarama:
SDCC 09 - SMALLVILLE Screening & Q&A LIVE!
Introducing an "exclusive, made for Comic-Con sneak peek" of season nine footage.

Superman "S" logo kicks off the footage.

Ends with shot of Clark in a costume wtih an "S" logo. Looked dark, but it was a dark setting for the scene. Almost looked black with a black coat, and a dark blue Superman "S" shield.

Posted this in the JSA section, but this was a comment Geoff made on the panel.

"I'm going to be writing another episode," Johns says. "Thanks, all the feedback on 'Legion' was great. This year it's going to be Justice Society of America."

I really hope he wasn't kidding.

I think he was being straight up.
From CBR:
CCI: Johns Brings JSA to “Smallville”


From IGN:
SDCC 09: The Smallville Cast Discuss Season Nine

The audience was shown a clip of upcoming scenes from the ninth season, including the all-important last clip of Clark standing on a building wearing a big "S" on his chest. However, his "pseudo-suit" is not the famed red-and-blue costume that we all know and love, but rather a dark one with a black cape and insignia. The producers explained that, just as the show has been a slow build towards Clark fully realizing his powers, it would seem out of character to have him wear the final version of Superman's famous costume. That said, look for answers about the suit and Clark's flying ability in the season premiere.
