SciFi Wire and IGN are reporting the news that Michael Shanks, late of the “Stargate” franchise, will play Hawkman in the Justice Society episode of “Smallville”. You may recall that the episode in question will be written by fan-favorite Geoff Johns.
Also appearing? Dr. Fate! He’ll be played by actor Brent Stait, also known for his appearances in genre fare like “Stargate”.
Plus, Fancast has chimed in that Stargirl will appear in the person of actress Britt Irvin (best known for “Aliens in America”).
The episode in question, “Society”, is scheduled for January. It will be directed by Glen Winter, who also directed the “Legion” episode. And yes, MORE JSAers have been rumored to appear.
UPDATE: Geoff Johns, via his Twitter account, stated on Tuesday:
Yes, Hawkman will have wings. And a big mace. Oh. And he and Green Arrow don’t get along. At all.
