And of course.. older recent news:

Spoiler:
Supergirl Lands in Smallville
WEDNESDAY JULY 11, 2007 06:00 PM EDT
By Cynthia Wang

Supergirl is coming to the CW's Smallville. Canadian actress Laura Vandervoort just got the call Wednesday that she has been cast and will start shooting with Tom Welling, Michael Rosenbaum and Aaron Ashmore next week in Vancouver.

"She's a combination of beauty, intelligence, a certain warmth, and great attitude," Smallville co-creator Al Gough tells PEOPLE. "We've wanted a character to shake things up. She may be Clark Kent's cousin, but that doesn't mean she's going to be the obedient one!"

Since mid-May, when DC Comics approved of introducing Supergirl to the Smallville series, creators Gough and Miles Millar have seen hundreds of actresses for the part but found perfection in Vandervoort, 22, of Toronto, who may be known to fans of the cable series Instant Star as Sadie Harrison. "She was speechless but she was very excited," Gough says of Vandervoort's reaction to the news.




Supergirl will be introduced to viewers as Kara, Clark's cousin, who was born on Krypton and has all of Clark's powers plus the ability to fly. Watch for her to spark romance with Jimmy Olsen (Ashmore) as well.

Will supergirl be a regular or just a guest spot. It would be ok to have her as a guest or recurring character, but as a regular it would be too much.

This looks like a ploy for a spinoff series once Smallville ends next season.

That's been discussed on kryptonsite.com.

Although, there may be TWO more seasons of Smallville...

Wow. That's who is playing her? How bland.

But, hey! She'll fit in with the show perfectly..

How can she be her Aunt?
So what other Stunt Casting can they do?
Faye Dunaway?
Marc McClure?
Don't think they will get Teri Hatcher.

Stunt casting? How about Ben Affleck playing George Reeves playing a character?

From Variety:

SMALLVILLE

Variety has confirmed it -- actress Helen Slater, known for playing Supergirl in the ill-fated cinematic film of the same name, will be playing the role of Clark Kent's Kryptonian birth mother in this season of the hit CW series.

This season sounds like it's almost going to have too much. Supergirl, Clark's mother, Bizarro, JLA, Green Arrow, Manhunter, etc.

Sounds good to me. Less chance of filler.

Skip season 4. Season 5 got the show back on track and season 6 was even better.

OR one complete season sans all the filler episodes. I like this show well enough (I will finally be caught up via DVDs and repeats of S6 by the time the show starts in the fall), but I really want Clark to bust out and become Superman. I realize that defies the "no flights, no tights" rule, but that would be how I'd want it to wrap up. They've pretty much done everything there is to do with this show - they just need one deep-reaching, season-long story arc that kicks ass.

They should have made him portray an alternate universe, wimpy Superman. Or maybe Bizarro.

I finally got around to watching the Comicon Smallville panel and they fielded some Q&A, one of which addresses part of your post. A few highlights:

Spoiler:
- No Bruce Wayne... ever (once the Batman franchise was rebooted, he became off limits)

- No Wonder Woman, thus far. They are still trying

- Supergirl will enter in episode 4 and be on throughout the season

- Green Arrow will be back in episode 6

- Lois gets a job at the Daily Planet

- Clark may fly this season. Kara/Supergirl will be showing him the ropes since she knows how to fly. So there will be some experimentation. No mention of the tights though.

I thought I'd resurrect this thread since the premiere is now less than 2 weeks away. This is virtually the only show I've followed (thats still airing new seasons) for two years or so. For me, the best TV shows ever to air are long done (The X-Files and Seinfeld) Smallville's not perfect but come on, it's superman and all the girls in it are complete hotties. And damn, the actress playing Kara is the hottest one yet. What I don't understand is when the creators promised "no flights, no tights" they broke it in the episode where Clark stops that missile that that kid launched at Smallville. So he has already flown before. I understand them not wanting to show him in the suit ever, but why can't they let him embrace his most famous power? Also, the introduction of Kara "Supergirl" is interesting, since they wouldn't kill her off like they did Raya. Which makes me curious as to whether they will keep her until the show ends, or she'll leave Smallville and Clark behind for her own reasons.

Wait! Which Manhunter?

I can't for the life of me get into this show but the guest heroes have peaked my interests.

I thought he jumped up to it since it was still close enough to the ground.
