E! Online - Lonnie in Chicago: Any hints on what villains are coming to Smallville?
A few fan faves will be back next season, but we’ll have to wait a while to find out the rest. Says Brian Peterson, “We introduced several this year that we’ll probably bring back next year. We loved Zatanna. We looked at a few others that we want to introduce, but we’re going to wait for Comic-Con to release all that.” One hero you won’t see stopping by is Batman. Though the producers really want to have him on the show, Kelly Sounders says there’s still trouble with the franchise crossovers: “Obviously everybody wants to keep all the franchises going and give the fans what they want in each. If that opening ever, ever occurs, we’ll be all over it.”
