Smallville Justice Society Smallville: Justice Society Two Hour Movie Event

Have you been watching Smallville for the last eight seasons, hoping and praying that one day the tweenage drama would be put aside and some kick-ass superhero adventures would ensue? Well, you’re prayers are fixin’ to be answered, my friend, as Smallville insiders are saying that the showrunners have to lump to highly-anticipated upcoming episodes into one two-part, two-hour, super hero event, to air in January of next year.

The Smallville two-part special will feature the wo episodes – entitled “Society” and “Legends” respectively -that we previously reported would be scripted by none other than DC Comics’ hottest writer, Geoff Johns (who is also currently working on BIG-screen adaptations of The Flash and Shazam! alongside this Smallville project and his regular comic book duties).

The event is being so hyped because it will feature cameos from famous DC super heroes such as Stargirl (Britt Irvin), Hawkman (Stargate SG-1‘s Michael Shanks) and Dr. Fate (Brent Stait). It’s also rumored hat there might be cameos from other super heroes as well (like  Martian Manhunter, played by Phil Morris, who will be making a return for the event).  The actual plot of the two-part special remains a elusive,  though I’m sure we’ll be getting the full skinny before too long. It will likely involve something about superheroes and shady government agencies, as we also learned recently that the movie event will feature blaxploitation icon Pam Grier as Amanda Waller, the DC Universe’s black ops superhero watchdog.

With Geoff Johns providing the vision, a boatload of superhero cameos and famous guest-stars adding to the fun, I say we’re in for one heck of a good show!

Catch the Smallville two-part special event (that’s both “Society” and “Legends”) on January 29, 2010 starting @ 8pm on the CW.

  1. This is pretty cool, I like that they are adding more of the comic universe to the show, now we just gotta wait for Clark to put on the cape and take flight, maybe leading up to a new Superman movie, but I won’t be holding my breath for that to happen.

  2. Really exciting! I can’t wait! I wish they’d air an encore of it to be honest…

  3. This is exciting news, I know its only a two parter being shown together but it shows a willingness with the people in charge to make Smallville into a huge event, this can only be a good thing. Its nice to see the show getting support, this bodes well for a tenth season.

  4. Now if we could just get the Flash to be the Flash, Ollie to grow a goatee, and Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern to show up, this would be exciting.

  5. yay!

  6. For smallville to maintain such great quality 9 years into the show is amazing, I can’t wait for this two hour special and hopefully it’ll attract viewers enough to garner a tenth season as well as another special.

  7. Its just two episodes presented together as a two hour movie.
    But I will watch it .

  8. Yes ! Bring on the JSA !!!
    cant wait to see what Dr.Fate will look like.

    i wonder who would win between Dr.Fate & Dr.Strange ??


  9. outstanding!

  10. Cool…..this season has been GREAT!!! Every episode feels like a movie and so far I haven’t been wanting more, like I have in past seasons. I feel each episode has a purpose and it succeeding in getting point across. …..but I really want to see him fly SOON!!

  11. On the one hand, you have to love Pam Grier. On the other hand I always picture Amanda Waller as tubby and ugly. Now I’m conflicted.

  12. the promo for this episode looked real rockin’. i’m excited. but January 22nd??? Why so long?????????

    (that was a hypothetical question. i understand completely why so long)
