Some of you may have read my earlier post on Smallville's upcoming 2-part Justice League themed episode. Word is that this is no longer the case – the CW has decided to make it a 2 hour MOVIE!!! The title for the flick?? Smallville: Absolute Justice. (It has a nice ring to it, huh?)
Additionally, the movie will debut yet another character known in the DC Universe – none other than Hawkman (yay)!
The actor that has signed on to play Hawkman is Michael Shanks – some of you may know him from Stargate SG-1, but I know him from his 4-episode arc as Victor on Burn Notice. Check out the first picture of our artificially-winged friend:
Nice pants guy…
FYI – The airdate for Smallville: Absolute Justice has been changed from January 29 , 2010 to February 5, 2010. (Boo.)
Lastly, I have also read that Pam Grier will be joining for multiple episodes playing the wonderfully bad Amanda Waller. (Hmmm..not too sure about that.) Yummy tidbit: Waller was ranked as IGN's 60th Greatest Comic Book Villain of All Time in 2009. I'd say Grier has some cracked eggs to fill. What do you think??
