Supergirl is currently airing on CBS, but while Smallville was still going strong on The CW eight years ago, there were talks of spinning off Kara Zor-El into her own show.
The thought of who could potentially play Superman on Supergirl is an intriguing one. One option could be bringing back Tom Welling, who played Clark Kent for a decade on Smallville, but is this even feasible?
After his stint on Smallville ended when the show did in 2011, Welling slowed down and stuck with movies, only popping up in a few projects over the last several years, including Parkland and Draft Day. Now, it looks as if the actor wants to return to television in another starring role.
Here, we’re shining a spotlight on ten of the worst offenders when it comes to great TV shows that got increasingly more frustrating as time went by. The shows that started off fantastic and eventually got lost in the smokescreen of their own wheel-spinning.
The Smallville faithful can rejoice as their beloved Allison Mack aka techie Chloe Sullivan from the long running drama is returning to prime time. And the move is not to any of the superhero shows that are flooding the networks. Mack is instead returning to the very dark FOX drama The Following starring Kevin Bacon.
Superheroes aren’t the only comic book characters on TV who can get horrible costumes. Villains are also frequent victims of poor costume design. These are the supervillains whose looks should have been reevaluated immediately.
Next year, Supergirl will air on CBS, and whoever is chosen to play Kara Zor-El will have a lot riding on her. Fortunately, Laura Vandervoort, who played Kara on Smallville from 2007-2011, has some advice for the next actress to wear the cape and 'S' shield, including acting tips and suggestions on footwear.
In the comics, the reason Supergirl is named Supergirl is because she was only a teenager when she met and trained with Superman to hone her special powers given to her by Earth’s yellow sun. Basically, her title is meant to be an indication of her young age (and, of course, to differentiate her from any characters named “Superwoman”).
While we'll never get to see Tom Welling soaring the skies above Metropolis on the small screen, we will be getting a nice consolation prize. Clark's early adventures as Superman will be continuing in the upcoming comic-book series Smallville Season 11.
Fans of Allison Mack may spot her in what’s sure to be the gloriously gory Piranha 3DD. The former Smallville star is credited for a role in the upcoming horror sequel, due to hit theaters this June. And now it looks like we’ll also be seeing her in Wilfred’s second season. The FX comedy series also happens to be returning in June.
The CW is no stranger to superheroes. The network’s long-running superhero drama, Smallville, only finished its tenure last spring. Now, the CW is working out a deal to get another superhero property on the network. For Smallville fans, the network's new superhero may actually be a familiar name. The deal the CW is brokering is to get Green Arrow on air.
Based on how things turned out with the "Big Bads" of Seasons 9 and 10 of Smallville, perhaps they should have been switched. General Zod proved to be a very compelling and effective villain in making Clark think hard about his Kryptonian side, while providing a nemesis worthy of Superman. Darkseid was more of an inconvenience throughout the season, and as a "big bad" he and his minions were little more than afterthoughts to Clark's personal demons.
With Smallville ending this year, there are going to be a lot of unemployed, good-looking young actors on the prowl for another job and, case-in-point, yesterday we announced that cast member Cassidy Freeman is going to work at The Playboy Club. Well, it seems that Lois Lane, Erica Durance, has also found herself a guest spot on a brand new series.
Smallville actress Cassidy Freeman has put her time mingling with metahumans behind her and set her sights on the future. That future, it turns out, will include hanging out with hot girls wearing bunny ears. TVLine is reporting that Freeman, who played the loyalty-switching Tess Mercer/Luthor on Smallville, will play a recurring character on NBC's upcoming The Playboy Club.
Warner Bros. announced today that they’re throwing a key party at comic con. Those are their words, not mine, however before your mind starts drifting to things you’ve heard about the ‘70’s, this event is actually a fun, promotional strategy involving hotel room keys.
