Default Smallville Update and Beyond!

Hey, everyone!

So as most of you know, I'm writing an episode of Smallville this year. I've already begun working with the Smallville executive producers and head writers - Todd, Darren, Kelly and Brian - and some of the staff - Bryan, Turi, Al and Caroline. They all rock. They've been super nice, super genuine people and they've welcomed me into their clubhouse with open arms. Working on Smallville has been some of the most fun I've ever had in my career.

I can tell you with confidence, the season they have planned is easily the most ambitious to date. There are so many twists and turns. And episode 10. Episode 10 is INSANE. My episode is now 11, so it's going to be a hard act to follow, but I'll give it my all. I have to say too, that if they pull off where they're taking Doomsday...I mean, I didn't understand where they were going when they announced that Doomsday had a human alter ego. But it's freaking cool. As hell. And fans of the comics are going to be blown away when everything is actually revealed. It's really pretty spectacular.

Also, the Legion? They are absolutely, 100% on point with the Legionnaires and their relationship with Clark Kent. I can say you'll see an appearance by one of the Legion's better known enemies, but I can't reveal who just yet. More information to come when I can talk about it.

Meanwhile, The Flash: Rebirth is well underway (Ethan is kicking ass - again!). Legion of 3 Worlds is turning out beyond my already insanely high expectations. I'm extremely happy with Action, Green Lantern and Justice Society...this has been an amazing time, especially the last couple of months. Still, there are some pretty insane things brewing. More on that later so stay tuned!

Thanks for the support and thanks for making all of this possible.

Here's to Wednesdays!

Geoff

I still blame you for making me read comics every week. I'll be checking out Smallville after a long hiatus away just to see the Legion episode, I'm actually excited for a show that I never used to think twice about.

Do they give Clark a "Legion" flight ring at the end of the episode?



Smallville rules! (can't wait to add season 7 to my DVD shelf...)

Hey, if I wired $2k, would you and Geoff rope and gag Tom Welling for me?

THAT IS MY FINAL OFFER!!!

Geoff, we need pics of you and the cast on your MySpace page!

So when this is done, will Geoff be submitting a pitch for a Flash movie????

I don't think it would be asking for too much if you could reveal how far into production these projects are. How complete is LO3W? How far is George? How much of Flash: Rebirth have you written? How much has Ethan drawn?

It's always nice to hear a creator in the business happy and Geoff sounds quite happy there so that can only bode well and help make sure quality work is done.

This all sounds pretty sweet!

Any hints on casting choices for the Legion in Smallville?

Geoff,

do you know if Green Lantern is going to be on Smallville, with everyone else (Maxima, The Legion, Doomsday, with the Justice League too.) I'm so waiting to see Hal on it.
