After years of boring some with stories of a faux Man of Steel and enthralling others with Gossip Girl-styled drama involving some of DC Comics fabled characters, The CW will announce tomorrow that it’s long running superhero show Smallville will finally hang up it’s red, blue and yellow spand — oops, I forgot, Tom Welling’s Clark never got to wear Superman’s iconic costume!
The news comes as the show ends its ninth, and reportedly best, season. Welling spilled the beans to Hollywood Life at a party honoring the release of power producer Jerry Weintraub’s new book, “When I Stop Talking You’ll Know I’m Dead” at Barneys New York in Beverly Hills, Calif. May 18.
The news doesn’t come a day too soon. Smallville is a mockery of the World’s Greatest Hero and the DC Universe in general – and it always has been. The fact that Clark Kent has recently been running around dressed like Neo and calling himself The Blur is offensive to die-hard fans of the Last Son of Krypton and of the long running film series, as has every other element of the show, from teenagers running the Daily Planet to the non-existent character of Chloe (Alison Mack) – a figure created for the express purpose of soaping up the story of Superman. Good Riddance!
