With the winter premiere of Smallville being moved and fans having to wait another week to see Steve Bacic as Archer (or in this case “The Dark Archer”), The CW was kind enough to release another clip and a beyond-awesome poster for the television movie event, “Absolute Justice,” to hold fans over until the show’s return. Are the poster and clip enough?

Oh yeah!

While the clip is only 30-seconds long, it does show a little more of the story we can expect to see and I don’t know how, but it’s made me even more excited for this. I really didn’t think it was possible for me to be even more excited for “Absolute Justice,” but I am. If the clip didn’t do it, the poster would have.

The poster, showing Dr. Fate, Stargirl, Green Arrow and Hawkman, is not only amazing, but an enormous step up from the lackluster Photoshop job that was done with the season 9 promo photos for Smallville (see header image above).

Oh, silly me, I forgot about the clip. Check it out below.

Uh-oh… what’s happened to the Justice Society? I’m not sure, but I have a feeling that someone named Wesley Dodds and his alter-ego rhyming with “randman” (Sandman) has something to do with it.

The poster? We’ve got that as well. Bam! Check it out.

I’m not one to get my hopes up, but I’m almost positive that “Absolute Justice” is going to be above and beyond the mess Superman Returns turned out to be. Does this possibly add a little more credence to my feeling that Tom Welling should be given a shot to play Superman in the movies?

What say you? Am I just fanboying it up or are the clip and poster really that great?

While the return of Smallville has been pushed back a week, “Absolute Justice” is still set to air February 5 @8PM.
