[Update: Be Sure To Check out our Smallville Season 10 Premiere Review!]

Today, The CW released seven more images from the season 10 premiere of Smallville. Something, I’m sure, fans will enjoy – especially since the previously released images weren’t that great. Don’t get me wrong, I love seeing Jonathan Kent (Jonathan Schneider) back on the farm but I can’t be the only one that was expecting a little more substance than just a step-by-step guide to fixing a fence.

That being said, The CW has officially redeemed themselves. The seven images released today are absolutely wonderful. Not only do we get to see Clark having to rescue Lois from a burning crucifix (something that we revealed in our Smallville spoilers guide), but a certain special someone shows up to give Lois the “encouragement” she needs.

Yes, that’s right. Lex is back! Sure, it’s not Michael Rosenbaum, but for some reason, even the visual of Lex Luthor back on Smallville has me excited.

Unfortunately, all we get to see is the back of Lex’s head. I assume that’s because The CW is still trying to get Rosenbaum to return and they’re holding off casting a replacement until the last minute. So, until a decision is made – one way or the other – I suppose we’ll only be seeing adult Lex Luthor from behind.

You can check out the rest of the photos below:

While I’m sure that many of you will be a little perturbed that Clark is still donning his emo look (especially with such a wonderful, new suit back at the farm), you can’t deny how awesome he looks in that cornfield.

One thing I’m curious about is how Clark is going to rescue Lois without revealing himself to her. Remember, while Lois knows who Clark is, Clark still believes that his secret identity remains, well, secret.

…I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

  1. Premieres Saturday? I am sure you mean Friday the 24th. Looks awesome. Can’t wait.

    • Now it says Friday. Cool.

    • Free to watch Smallville Season 10 Episode 1 Online Full Stream with many links to choose from

      Precise and accurate link..

  2. I cant wait! I dont see how this close to premiere they could still be trying to get michael rosenbaum back. I must say, erica durance is the best looking lois ever!

  3. Ahhh just like watching an old episode with an angry football jock

  4. Michael Rosenbaum needs to come back he has too

  5. Just saw these on Kryptonsite not too long ago. I’m so pumped. This season is going to be a “hats off” to Smallville fans and comic fans alike.

    Should be EPIC!!!

  6. Maybe the clone Lex is trying to recreate things it remembers, like Clark being strung up in the field?

    • why dont they just CGI Rosenbaum LOL

      • Cuz it’s a TV show and that would look awful. lol

  7. They barely have the budget to make Clark superspeed! I remember they had to cut sequences because they just couldn’t afford them. CGI ing him would be easier though.

    He’ll come back for the finale. I’d put money on it.

    • Me too. They say they’ve just got some things to iron out because they want him real bad.

  8. I believe its a clone until I see otherwise.

    This will happen the way it always does. She will get knocked out or fake getting knocked out just in time for Supes to come in and save the day.

  10. This next season should be pretty cool but I am not happy that they haven’t put Lobo into the mix. I have wanted to see a Lobo episode since the series started.

    • @Greater Tater

      While Lobo is an interesting character, I don’t think he would fit well into the overall flow of the show…too big…too “alien”. I was surprised when Doomsday was first announced for the same reason. That letdown, while an unhappy occurrence, was not the crushing, infuriating surprise for me that it was for a lot of other people. I’m glad they ARE NOT bringing in Lobo.

      • There are lots of characters I wish they would not have done but Lobo isn’t one of them. It would be interesting to see how he does when he gets fought to a stalemate and Lobo gets his man. Because the Main Man always gets his man. I thought Braniac and Doomsday were over the top. Lobo is one of my favorite characters of all time and I would love to see him on screen.

  11. Michael Rosenbaum has viryually no career, he should just face the facts….he has been typecasted at Lex Luthor. Taking hat into consideration, he would be a FOOL not to come back this season. I mean, its just one more season, and I am sure they offered over a million to do the season. Where else iss he going to get that kind of money? Being a voice over for the Clone Wars? lol…im betting he’ll be back, but if its only for the finale I will be very dissapointed.

    On an unrelated issue, what is up with Lana? Yes her storyarc was beyond TERRIBLE in the Doomsday season, but tehre were many referenes made about her last season. We never officially got closure and she was too integral to the show to leave her out of the final season. IMO they shouldve left her dead after she supposebly died the second time at the end of season 6…when she (her clone; what a TERRIBLE idea) died in the car explosion. But being that the writers did not take the risk, she is still an issue that needs to be resolved, regardless of her new found STUPID power that would enable Clark to only speak to her from a distance. Give her an episode, give us closure.

    • I agree. I think she may return though. They’re really trying to pull out all the stops for this one

      • Oh dear god, I hope Lana does not return in this final season. That story arc was played out way too long. I don’t need any closure on that character, I’m just glad she is gone.

        • good point

        • Yeah, what he, uh, she, uh, whatever, said. :-)

  12. I’m happy to take the shallow route and just say: Erica Durance keeps getting hotter.

    :)

    • I don’t know. That scene when she was swimming with Aquaman was pretty hot. I had to make sure my wife didn’t see me drooling. :-P

      • Having sat in the fourth row at ComicCon, I can say that she’s even prettier in person. The only actress I saw that year who was more beautiful was Amanda Righetti (Mentalist, Friday the 13th).

    • yee shes smokin cant wait for this season

      • Sounds like they’re going to send the show out in style.

  13. is me or does the the photo of lex having Lois trussed up..well kind a look kinky?..lol god Lexy boys coming back..sexxxxy !

  14. I am saddened to hear that season 10 of “Smallville” will be the last. My heart literally just died….sigh…. i am so excited about this series, and i see so much potential, wherein the series can be developed in soooo many ways. You have already hinted at the idea of the “Justice Society of America”, now you could continue to film series of the everyday superman, encountering other issues throughout daily life, while meeting other superheroes and villains, eventually forming a Justice League. “Justice League” here can be tied into the series, since we have seen in season9/ episode 10 that there are other characters (such as green lantern, flash, hawk girl/man, fate, wild cat) and their idea of having apprentices. You could also tie into the series batman, or other marvel comic characters…i would be really disappointed to think/know that i’m the only one who is sooo elated about this tv series, and i’m suure many people agree with my idea/suggestion. Though cost may also be an issue, i am simply suggesting ways in which, you could continue the TV series, by evolving the series into something MORE,(new name, same characters etc.) since it would now be outside of ‘smallville’, and inevitably, it will be beneficial to you where $$$ are concerned.
    Please I am literally BEGGING that some thought be put into my suggestion/s. Thanks Much.

  15. Okay, I don’t read all of the chatter on Smallville but I do enjoy the show. My opinions: Leave Lana out. Bring Jimmy Olson back. He can’t be gone for “for future” reasons. Put Perry in as editor. And the obvious let Superman get his ability to fly permanently.

  16. Please Please Please bring back my bald-headed baby, Lex!!!!

  17. man how cool is this epic season of smallville cant wait to see lex wonder of lana will also show up

    • I hope Lana does NOT show up. Good riddance to that character.

      Vic

  18. will clark end up with louis for real this time

  19. The major enemy they are talking about is Starro the Star Conqueror.

  20. Is Michael Rosenbaum coming back? He played the best Lex Luthor.

  21. my idea would Be That Lex Luthor finds The Lifeless body of Lana [ as she got killed by a Superman Villain] in the begining of the epibsode and then in the middle of the epidode and finally loses his Humanality the way that Darth Vader did and the only difference is that he loses himself permanently to it and he descends into The Dark side and in turn he becomes more and more like his father only with no emoition and no mercy for his actions and devolps an an accdition for power and money, meanwhile Clark Kent personally strips himself of his Humanality permanently in order to avoid feeling pain suffered by humans and Ultimately becomes Superman as an result and now wears the same tights that he wore on Superman Returns with his only Goal being his Destiny and shortally before the ending Chloe Sullain finally dies due to the draining of her powers and they have funerals for Lana and Chole while Lois been at the funerals but by the end of the epidsode she finally works full time at The Daily Planet as a Job as a Reporter thaks to Perry White who employs her then outside of the Buliding Clark Kent shows his ability of Flight in the sky in his all New costume and he is no longer a teenager but an fully Grown up adult instead then the the screen goes black and
