Smallville tells the tale of a teenage Clark Kent in the days before he was Superman. It is the town where he came from where very strange things started happening with his arrival in a spaceship in the midst of a meteor storm of green rocks. Clark must deal with a variety of individuals given powers by the green rocks, keep his powers a secret, cope with his friendship with a young Lex Luthor, and balance the two girls in his life, Chloe and Lana. The show also shows us how Lex Luthor develops from a friend of Clark's and kinda-okay guy to (presumably) the villain who will plague Superman in his later years.
Former The Dukes of Hazzard star John Schneider can breathe easy knowing that Pa Kent won't be featured, as far as we know, in the upcoming Man of Steel follow-up Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. The actor portrayed Clark Kent's adoptive father Jonathan on Smallville. Having some ownership over the iconic DC character, he doesn't mind saying his is the best version yet, and possibly ever.
Man of Steel was released June 14th, 2013.Read More
The new Man of Steel trailer landed late Tuesday afternoon with a sonic boom that caused a seismic shift in fan anticipation. Though eagerly awaited, many have remained skeptical, and somewhat uneasy, about this so-called 'reboot' from director Zack Snyder. He did, after all, make what some call the most disappointing comic book adaptation of all time with 2009's Watchmen. And Warner Bros., the studio behind Man of Steel, royally whiffed it with their more recent DC Comics adaptation Green Lantern. Not to mention, there's still the mild stench of Superman Returns wafting through the air like a patchouli fart, causing fear that we could be in store for another snooze fest that fails at showing exactly what Kal-El is capable of on planet earth.
This latest look at Man of Steel puts all fears to rest, and even turned this mild mannered superhero movie into the must-see event of the summer. The great thing about the trailer is that it doesn't completely show its hand. It hints at awesomeness in a powerful way, and does what any good piece of marketing should do. It has made us salivate and clamor for that coveted IMAX midnight ticket.Read More
