SCI FI Wire spoke with the producers of Smallville, and they have confirmed that Kal-El will be wearing a Superman costume in Season Nine, even if it isn’t quite like the one we know and love.
According to their report, this costume will be black and silver, not unlike what Clark wore upon his resurrection in the comics during “Reign of the Supermen.”
“Up until now Clark has seen himself as human, and he’s seen his Kryptonian identity as something to hide,” producer Brian Peterson told SCI FI. “This year he’s embracing his Kryptonian identity and seeing himself solely as a hero, almost to the detriment of living as a human. It’s really the pendulum swinging a little too far in the other direction as he finds his ground and balance between the two identities. He’s really going to be pulled back into being Clark Kent by the realization that he loves Lois Lane. It’s the crux of the year, his burgeoning love for Lois and the love triangle of Clark loves Lois, but Lois loves Superman.”
Sounds interesting. What say you, Rama readers?
