smallville season 9 Smallville: First Official Pics Of Dr. Fate, Hawkman & Stargirl

With one holiday down we’re coming ever closer to the premiere of Smallville: Absolute Justice and the closer we get, the more we get to see, and today The CW has finally released some official pictures of Justice Society members Dr. Fate and Stargirl, as well as some tussling about from Green Arrow and Hawkman. Hopefully, this trend will continue so that I won’t have to spend time pulling stills from YouTube trailers.

Last week we brought you some awesome (and I do mean awesome) pictures of Dr. Fate, Sandman and a little glimpse of Green Lantern. Sure, the pictures were from a teaser trailer, but I think the general consensus was that they looked great and the excitement continued to build for this movie.

While I’m not attempting to set fans up for a fall, I do have to be completely honest and say that the pictures released today, the “official” pictures, kind of make me take pause and wonder if I’ve got things all wrong with how “awesome” I thought the costumes looked.

Let me just show you this pictures now and we can talk after, if you’re still in the mood.

Is it just me or do you see a big difference between the photos released today and the ones released previously? Even the pictures of Hawkman that we previously showed didn’t look this… odd? I’m not saying that they look bad, I’m just saying that they look, kind of, janky.

Still, far be it for me to say something bad about Smallville as they’ve had a great run this season and I think maybe I can justify these pictures… They’re bad pictures. That’s all. Really bad pictures. If you look at Green Arrow, his costume looks horrible as well and in the series, I love his costume. I think that these pictures are too bright and too “staged” so they give off this weird vibe. I have a feeling that when it comes down it, when we see them on the screen, they’ll look amazing (well, maybe except for Stargirl).

…fingers crossed.

Am I being too harsh? Do these costumes look good in the pictures?

Maybe I’m still full of Tryptophan from all that turkey and need someone to set me straight.

  1. now i see why they change comic outfits for real life adaptations lol

    @ all those who dispute TDK as a GREAT film, your downright looney.
    Id understand youd saying its the second best “batman” film. TDK didnt focus on the character as much. Instead nolan went for a real reeling film, mixed with some cool toys a film like this normally wouldnt have and a fantastic group of actors.

    But put back to back TDK blows BB out of the water in total overall experience, along with a whole shizload of other films< not just comic book adaptations.

    you want a batman -batman film, you get batman begins

    you want a thriller, drama, something you are happy you got to experience in a theatre, you go see (not even titled batman) TDK.
    lol, do as i just did, imagine the characters, same acting and all but not as the comic book selfs. Still a hero and crazy guy, just not batman and joker.
    that would have been TERRIFYING… lol, in fact i guess the only thing that keeps ledgers performance from being horrified is the fact you know -batman- is gonna win.

  2. Actually, in TDK they focused a lot on character development. at the same time as they focused on a “real reeling film”. Begins is the origin story, TDK is how he becomes the dark knight, everyones hope and fear. and character development on a lot of the sidecharacters, such as two-face. so if u want a good batman film, u get either begins or TDK, no, get both;)

  3. How did we even get on Batman? lol

    Vic, very true about Peter Parker. But what most people don’t know is that Peter was taught how to sow and tailor by his aunt, thus making him an expert in all things costume. (And i know Someone’s gonna think i seriously think that so here’s to those people: THAT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE FUNNY)

  4. Smallvilles done a good job with costumes, enough to ensure it has stayed on for as long as it has so I think we should reserve too much judgement on these episodes until they’ve actually aired.

    “How did we get onto Batman”?

    We got there b/c there are some who can’t seem to concieve that not everyone in the world believes The Dark Knight is the end to all end in movies. SOme of us just like TDK and don;t see it as the best Batman film.

    The problem with comparing TDK & BB (Batman Begins) is that while both use the same director and actors there really are 2 different films and I mean by more then just being sequels. TDK is almost like a reinvention of BB. In BB we have a very well done comic book adaptation, probably the best ever for the Batman character and in TDK we have not a comic book adaptation but a dark drama that builds it’s story around the Batman character. And so in the firts film we see what you would expect from a well done Batman movie and in the later we see what you’d expect from a well done Drama (that has action) that features super heros themes.

  5. @Foopher-Especially liked how Aunt May taught him how to form rubber “web” for his costume; is there ANYTHING that old lady doesn’t know (besides the fact that her nephew looked like a total emo wannabe in the last movie)???

  6.

  7. I AM A HUGE SMALLVILLE FAN.I WATCH THE SHOW EVERY FRIDAY NIGHT!BUT,THE STORY SHOULD MAKE WATCHING THE COSTUMES BETTER!

  8. These costumes are meant to be retro, they are meant to look like they came from the eighties because that is when the JSA were operating in Smallville’s timeline.
