WB is confirming what anyone who read last week's Ask Ausiello already knew: The network is developing a Smallville spin-off based on the classic DC Comics character Aquaman. Little is known about the offshoot, but sources confirm that Alan Ritchson who played Aqua on Smallville last month will not be back in the title role. However, if WB ever gives Absman his own show, Ritchson will be the first one they call.
