Smallville Finale First Look: The Wedding of Clark Kent and Lois Lane

Tom Welling and Erica Durance

The May 13 series finale of Smallville promises major changes for Clark Kent, and not just his transformation into Superman. As seen in this exclusive photo, Clark (Tom Welling) and Lois Lane (Erica Durance) head to the chapel — but there's drama along the way. "It's a very, very long walk down that aisle," teases executive producer Kelly Souders. "There are some good moments, some heart-wrenching moments and some surprising moments at their wedding."

Eric Marstolf Steps Into the Smallville Spotlight as Booster Gold

Eric Martsolf

He's "the greatest hero you've never heard of." Unless you're a fan of DC Comics mythos, you probably aren't familiar with Booster Gold, a secondary character whose popularity is mainly confined to fanboy (and girl) circles. But after this week's episode of Smallville, non-comics fans are likely to be joining the Gold rush. Played with charming enthusiasm by guest star Eric Martsolf, Booster Gold is a fame-seeking pretty boy who seems as interested in publicity and corporate sponsorships as he is fighting crime. His mysterious arrival in Metropolis coincides with Clark (Tom Welling) struggling to adopt a more mild-mannered personality when not on superhero duty. TV Guide Magazine talked to Martsolf — currently steaming up afternoon TV as boozy, screwed up Brady Black on the NBC soap Days of Our Lives — about... read more

Waiting for Superman: Tom Welling Reflects on Smallville's 10-Year Odyssey

Tom Welling

On a visit to the Smallville set in Burnaby, British Columbia, last month, there was little indication that the 10-year-old series was in the last days of production. Though the final hour of the show (airing May 13) had already been filmed a few weeks earlier, it was business as usual for the cast and crew as they still had to shoot a couple of earlier episodes. But there was one clue that Clark Kent's long-awaited transformation into Superman was approaching. As series star Tom Welling filmed a scene in the Phantom Zone with Justin Hartley (aka Oliver Queen, aka Green Arrow), the camera zoomed in on Welling's chiseled face, revealing a well-placed wisp of hair forming what looked a lot like pop culture's most iconic spit curl. (The episode, directed by Hartley, airs April 29. New episodes return tonight at 8/7c on The CW.) A few hours later, wearing a royal blue t-shirt, black jeans and black boots, a relaxed Welling took a break from filming to talk to TV Guide Magazine about his decade-long odyssey as the man who would be Super.

Welcome Back, Chloe: Allison Mack Talks About Returning to Smallville One Last Time

Allison Mack

Smallville's passionate fans aren't the only ones having a hard time saying goodbye to the series, which ends its 10-year run on Friday, May 13. Allison Mack, who plays Chloe Sullivan, Clark Kent's longtime-friend-turned-superhero-computer-whiz, decided she couldn't walk away without one final appearance. A series regular for the show's first nine years, Mack signed on for just five episodes this season and had wrapped up that commitment in February. Now in New York City, where she recently finished a run in the Off Broadway play Apple Cove, Mack talked to TV Guide Magazine about her decision to go back one last time, her fervent fans and the next chapter in her life... read more

Smallville Exclusive: Up, Up and Away!

Tom Welling and Erica Durance

It's fitting that when a visitor arrives to the Burnaby, British Columbia, set of Smallville, he's quickly escorted to the Phantom Zone. The extra-dimensional prison created for planet Krypton's worst criminals is known for being nearly impossible to escape — a perfect metaphor for the show's desire to prevent leaks about the plot of the upcoming series finale. After 10 years on the air, there is, to put it mildly, intense anticipation for Clark Kent's final journey toward becoming Superman, set for May 13. (The last batch of new episodes begins Friday, April 15.) The big question, of course, is "Will he or won't he?" Will he put on the iconic costume of the comic-book legend? Will he finally learn how to fly? Will he be called Superman?

First Look: Booster Gold Rushes Into the Smallville Spotlight

Smallville

Get ready, Clark Kent, there's a new golden boy in town. On April 22, Smallville introduces Booster Gold, "a glory-seeking showboat from the future," says Days of Our Lives star Eric Martsolf, who plays the DC Comics cult favorite. "The episode takes place in Booster's very early stages where he's at his conceited best, where he believes he can do whatever he wants. He's gonna stay for the photo op and bask in the glory of his heroic efforts."

Booster's behavior shocks Clark ... read more

Cartoon Network and DC Comics Team-Up for Superhero Adventures

DC Nation

"If you're a DC Comics fan this is the best news of all time," says Geoff Johns, chief creative officer for DC Entertainment, with only a slight hint of hyperbole. Johns was on hand at Cartoon Network's upfront presentation in New York City on Wednesday morning to talk about "DC Nation," a programming initiative that will showcase DC's expansive library of characters. Set to debut in 2012, DC Nation will include shows like Green Lantern: The Animated Series, a CGI show coming this fall (springboarding off this summer's Ryan Reynolds film) and Young Justice: Invasion, a 10-episode miniseries spinning out of the original Young Justice... read more

First Look: Superman Soars Onto Batman: The Brave and the Bold

Batman and Superman

It's the superhero smackdown that will have comic-book fans salivating: Superman vs. Batman. When Batman: The Brave and the Bold returns with new episodes this Friday (March 25, 6:30/5:30c on Cartoon Network), the Caped Crusader heads to Metropolis to help the Man of Steel take down Lex Luthor in a team-up of the so-called "world's finest" heroes. But when Superman gets mysteriously infected with red kryptonite he becomes a power-hungry egomaniac. It's up to Batman — with an assist from Krypto the Superdog! — to subdue Superman until the red-k wears off.
