No longer will Smallville be burdened with two-part episodes known as "Society" and "Legends," because the powers that be have granted them an entire movie. This season, the hit CW series will be thrilling the fans with the two-hour special now known as Smallville: Absolute Justice.
According to Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello, the network decided to scrap their plans of leaving the viewers hanging with the separate installments. The title of the upcoming TV film has just been released, along with the excited emotions of Smallville die-hards.
It was reported earlier that the Justice Society-themed episodes have made it as a movie event
for the network. Now, everything looks good to go except for the schedule. Smallville: Absolute Justice
was supposedly airing on January 29, but the date has been changed to the 5th of February.
There's definitely a lot to be giddy about, in addition to the return of your regular cast. This TV movie marks the debut of several guest stars on the show, from Michael Shanks as Hawkman to Brent Stait as Dr. Fate.
Geoff Johns penned the episodes "Society" and "Legends" originally, and combining these two will surely be a treat for both fans and the CW execs. Ausiello has also reported that Smallville: Absolute Justice
will be having just one set of credits. Why that still needs mentioning, we're not really sure. The point is that there's going to be a Smallville
movie, and that it has a cool title.
The array of guest stars also includes Britt Irvin as Stargirl and Phil Morris as Martian Manhunter, but there might just be more to come. We mentioned before that the veteran actress Pam Grier's going to make an appearance
, so this is one event you can't miss. She's going to play the villainous Amanda Waller, for crying out loud.
Again, mark your calendars for Smallville: Absolute Justice
as it airs on February 5 next year on the CW.
