Booooooooooooooooooooooo NOOOO WTF!!! BAD BAD NEWS!!! Say it aint so! Rumor: Has Scott Porter been cast as Clark Kent in The Man of Steel

Is Scott Porter Superman? sent out this report on their site!
I was texted yesterday night around 11:30pm by my co-worker at Warner Bros. He said that Scott Porter has signed on to play Clark Kent in the Superman reboot The Man of Steel.
I am not too sure about this. He got the information from his friend, but he says he is adamant that it is true and that he only found out earlier (August 6 2010). Here is a copy of the text he sent me:

"J freak out just heard Scott Porter is playin Clark Kent in the reboot.".

I will let you make your own minds up. I know why he said "Clark Kent" and NOT "Superman" which is that Clark Kent is the dominant personality in the new movie. Hopefully this scoop doesn't get deleted like the Batman 3 scoop. This one is fresh from the mouth!!
Personally this is awful news! I mean this guy could not be more wrong for the part... Just look at him! He doesn't look the part at all.

I'm still backing Tom Welling for the role, and hope this
Rumor proves to be nothing but an ugly dumb Rumor.

Tom Welling god dammit should be in the movie!

Siegel heirs could jeopardize Superman Reboot

Fight over rights to the "Man of Steel" between the WB and the heirs of Siegel sould possibly put a stop to the new movie being rebooted by Chris Nolan.

I was going around the internet just a little while ago. There's been an update on the Siegel lawsuit over the rights to Superman. At the end of the article it said that the lawsuit COULD potentially endanger Nolan's Superman reboot.

I sure hope the Siegels won't mess up the new film. They could very well screw over an entire loyal fanbase. I hope something can get settled so we can still get our badass reboot film that we were promised.

Here's the link:

I just wanna know what everyone's thoughts are on this.

Laura Vandervoort To Suit Up As Supergirl In Smallville Season 10!

According to both the actress and executive producer Kelly Souders, fans can look forward to seeing something very close to her comic book outfit, her Linda Lee Danvers identity and more...

In a report over at TV Guide, Laura Vandervoort has revealed some new information about what we can expect to see fom Clark Kent 's cousin Kara in the tenth, and final season of the show: "Kara returns in a very heroic way. When I found out this could be my last episode, I thought it would be great to see a quick glimpse of her in the uniform before she takes off."

Well, looks like she's going to get her wish because according to executive producer Kelly Souders, "You really see her as Supergirl. Not the whole outfit, but her wardrobe will have evolved even a little more than Clark's. She's less Kara and way more Supergirl."

Vandervoort also told the site that Kara will take on her new look in a photo shoot after revealing her powers to the world. The beautiful actress then went on to talk about how exactly she'll get away with showing her face and keeping her identity secret. "You'll see Kara in the brunette wig and glasses as a bit of an homage to her other identity from the comics, Linda Lee Danvers."

"Kara has a lot of input down the road in Clark's transformation into Superman," she finished by teasing.

Brandon Routh Says He's "Moved On" From The Role Of Superman!

In this previously unreleased interview, the actor talks about moving on from Superman as well as how he thinks the role has affected his career...
Brandon Routh may have spent the past few weeks during interviews for Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World expressing his desire to return to the role of Clark Kent/Superman. However, in an interview that took place earlier this year during his time on the TV show Chuck, he wasn't quite so keen on returning to the role!

"I went through some anticipation for a while but it has been four years now so I have moved on to other things," he said when asked whether he'd be interested in playing Superman again.

I think I have found my place now," Routh added. "Playing Superman hasn't haunted me by any means. The challenge with that is a lot of people in the industry just stereotyped Superman Returns as a silly kind of movie. I have done quite a lot of roles since then, but not a lot has gotten out."

What do you guys think? Is it time for Brandon Routh to put Superman behind him once and for all or should he be Nolan's first choice when it comes to casting the Man of Steel in his planned reboot? Share your thoughts in the usual place!

As for me I'm happy he's moved on, and dude you wont be missed trust me. Now I personally think that Tom Welling should be the big screen Superman when Nolan reboots the series, and this will allow them a chance to not have to re do the damn origin again.

There is no need to re do it if Tom is Superman since we had 10 seasons on tv to learn the back story...

Bring on Tom Welling as SUPERMAN!

Full Coverage os SMALLVILLE at COMIC CON 2010

Tom Welling will finally suit up as Superman, Darkseid will be the main villain and expect an appearence from Blue Beetle! UPDATED: Check out an even more detailed description of the footage shown!

Once again thanks to Newsarama, we have all the latest updates from the Smallville Comic Con panel which is just about to wrap up in San Diego! There are several really exciting bits of news below, so read on for what will surely have even the harshest of the shows critics excited for the tenth, and final, season!

Geoff Johns, CCO of DC Entertainment is moderating the panel today, and promises a surprise or two for the final season.

A tease of the costume... and it looks like we have FLIGHT folks!

Lois said "Superman!" it's all coming to a head.

We do have a costume, guys.

And now we know what that Blue Beetle test footage may have been for...Geoff Johns is writing a Blue and Gold episode.

Blue Beetle and Booster Gold will be on this season of Smallville.

Cassidy Freeman, Erica Durance, Justin Hartley, and Tom Welling came out on stage, along with the producers. And we've confirmed that Darkseid is this year's big bad!

Darkseid will be a bit different from the comics however, to fit in with this world better.

The Superman costume is a slightly altered version of the one in Superman Returns.

If you hadn't heard already, John Schneider will be back as Pa Kent a bit this season, and he just came on stage!

They're really playing up the idea of Clark finally becoming the big hero we know from comics, and it looks like that will actually happen during the season, not just at the very end.

"The door is open" for Michael Rosenbaum to return as Lex Luthor, but nothing has been locked down yet.

No chance of Wonder Woman or Batman though.

And here is an even more detailed description from IGN of the footage that was shown just a few minutes ago!

Footage showed Lois saying, "I'm the last to know", and we see her looking at the full Superman suit Martha gave Clark. We see Carter Hall/Hawkman in a desert setting, saying, "I guess you never know what fate has planned for you," and Lois also appears to be in this desert scenario.

Tess Mercer wakes up in Cadmus Labs, and sees in a reflection that she is horribly disfigured on one side of her face. She meets a young boy there who shows her adult bodies in fluid filled tanks. When Tess asks the boy who they are, he says, 'My brothers."

We then see new footage of Clark walking up to Jonathan Kent on the Kent Farm, who tells him, "Something very dark is coming. And you're going to be tested."

The trailer ends a quick montage, including Chloe holding Dr. Fate's helmet, and a voice over of Jonathan Kent saying, "You're going to be the greatest hero the world has ever seen," before we cut to Lois saying, "Superman." The final shots show Clark apparently flying straight up holding the Daily Planet globe in his hands.

Superman Costume Revealed In 'Smallville' Final Season Trailer

The 'Smallville' season 10 trailer finally the first glimpse of the costume fans have been waiting to see since the show began.

Lois was shown looking at the Superman suit as it was neatly tucked away in a box at the barn. Tom Welling said he hadn't seen it in person yet, but he couldn't wait.

"Whatever we do, I want to make sure we earn the suit at the end," Welling said after the panel.

As for other tidbits, John Schneider will be back as Clark's dad for at least one episode, if not more.

Even though he's read his scene, Schneider said: "I don't know if that means I'm a spirit. I'm not really sure exactly what I am; real, imaginary, memory? But it's the best written scene I've ever done on Smallville."

Laura Vandervoort [photosLaura Vandervoort photos] will return as Kara Zor-El, better known as Supergirl and James Marsters will return as Brainiac for the show's 200th episode.

Alison Mack fans will also be pleased to hear Chloe will return to tie up her character and the relationship with Oliver.

Meanwhile, producers are still working to get Michael Rosenbaum to return as Lex.

"I know he's thinking about it," says Welling. "I know he knows that we want him and we don't feel like we can end it without it."

We'll see a lot of Erica Durance [photosErica Durance photos] (Lois) and Justin Hartley (Oliver) this season as they're slated to be in 22 and 17 episodes each, respectively.

Check out the trailer below, the suit pops up around the 1:20 mark:

Tom Welling On The Responsibility Of Wearing The Suit And The Possibility Of Playing Superman On The Big Screen!

The Smallville star discusses the honour of finally suiting up as the Man of Steel and whether or not he's ready to take his version of Clark Kent onto the big screen...
Now that it's finally been confirmed that we'll see Tom Welling wear the iconic costume, the next question is whether or not he wants to also portray the character on the character after the tenth and final season of Smallville. In the following interview which was conducted at Comic Con on Sunday, the actor talks about all of that and more!

New Smallville Season 10 Promo!

The final season of Smallville is only weeks away and The CW has created this new promotional trailer for it! Check it out:

TV Guide Reveals "Supergirl" Secrets's William Keck has interviewed Laura Vandervoort and executive producer Kelly Soudersepisode of Smallville and in doing so, got some spoilers about what we should expect about Laura's upcoming return

- Laura says that Kara is returning in a "very heroic way," and it sounds likely that she will get her wish to be seen in the Supergirl uniform before she takes off.

- Kelly Souders tells TV Guide that Kara's outfit "will have evolved even a little more than Clark's. She's less Kara and more Supergirl."

- Kara will become a "media darling" after she saves the world doing a heroic save, so she has to take on the alter ego of Linda Lee Danvers (seen to your left).

- Souders says that Kara has input down the road in Clark's transformation to Superman

, which seems to have worried many fans who expect or would like for the lead character from the show (Clark) to take the lead in such things. Flying, and now the costume and secret identity... hopefully it's not too late for Clark to be an inspiration himself.

John Glover Is Returning To Smallville!

Papa Luthor is Back!

Smallville alum John Glover has signed on to come back for the last season of the hit CW drama. Glover, who plays Lionel Luthor, father of Superman's nemesis, Lex Luthor, will appear in at least two episodes in November, according to Entertainment Weekly.

Glover joins the list of former series regulars and guest stars returning for the final season of the Superman prequel. The returning stars include Laura Vandervoort (supergirl Kara-El), James Marsters (brainiac Milton Fine), John Schneider (Jonathan Kent), and Michael Shanks (Hawkman).

So far, there is no word on whether or not Michael Rosenbaum will return to reprise his role as Lex Luthor one last time. Rosenbaum has been missing from the series since Lex’s explosive exit in the season seven finale.

The tenth and final season of Smallville is set to premiere on the CW, Friday, September 24 at 8/7c.

Tom Welling will wear the RED & BLUE NEXT SEASON!!! Confirmation from Comic book author Darren G. Davis

Well some said it wouldn't happen but from the looks of it Tom will wear the suit, and might not just be a final shot! But maybe even for a good part of the season coming up.

As you all know Smallville will be closing shop after this upcoming season, and with this comes the final evolution of Clark Kent into "The Man of Steel" or "Superman" to the un-geeks reading this.

Never had an actor played the role as long as Tom Welling so this being the final season really is a sad thing even if it's a show that ran for 10 years. Just think everything we have seen this decade we had Smallville on tv waiting for us every Thursday night, and then Friday night the last two seasons. I'm sure that Tom wants to play other roles, and from what I hear wants to direct also but he is this Generations face to this role, and that's an amazing honor he should be very proud off, and should fully embrace. I mean who wouldn't want to have people look at him, and say "hey that's Superman."

See to Superman fans he will always be known as this generations "SUPERMAN" just like Chris Reeve was to my generation as a kid, and millions of kids have grown up the last decade, and have seen Tom Welling as their face to the role of Superman.

This is such the case that the last movie flopped, and I personally think it was because it was a movie that featured another face, and well we got a "Superman" movie without this generations "Superman" which I think upset the fanbase to the point that nobody cared after the first week of that movie.... The fact that it was terrible didn't help it's cause, and so since Tom is this generations face to the role it would have been a total shame if he didn't get the chance to suit up for the series at least once!!! Heck he didn't get the role in the last movie, and things don't look great for the Nolan produced movie even tho he, and Chris Nolan as Producer... Well it's like a match made in fanboy heaven.

But if this is all we get then thank you Tom for proving them all wrong, and wearing the suit after all the people who said you would never wear it now can eat crow, and as a fan of the show there is nothing I wanted more then to see the suit on this show, and see you flying.

So this past Sunday Comic book author, and president of Blue Water Productions Darren G. Davis did a radio show interview with talk show "Tha Jackals Head" which is hosted by "Tha JackaL" can be heard on The Paranormal Soup Network & Tenacity Radio, Let it slip that this final season Tom Welling WILL INDEED wear the suit, and get this! It's mostly his doing.

When asked about Tom Welling, and Smallville being in it's 10th season Darren G. Davis wasted no time, and said "he will be wearing the Red & Blue this season, and if that wasn't enough to make one happy get this! He said that it was mostly his (Tom) doing because Tom wanted to do it because he wanted to put an end to what some people were saying about him being scared to wear it due to the so called "Superman Curse."

Looks like Tom doesn't believe in the curse, and will make millions of fans happy, and he will wear the "REAL SUIT" afterall.

When asked if it would look like the RED & BLUE or another "Black suit" he wears Darren said flat out that "No it will be the traditional RED & BLUE."

There you have it folks...
