Earlier this month, the CW officially picked up “Smallville” for its tenth season following a remarkably strong performance on Friday nights and a creative resurgence. “Absolute Justice” — the two part Justice Society episode by comic scribe Geoff Johns — was one of the most popular episodes of “Smallville” this year. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that the JSA will return before the end of the ninth season.
According to a report from last weekend’s Emerald City Comic-Con at Comics Alliance, Johns said that “[The JSA] do appear again at the end of season on ‘Smallville.'” Johns also added “The hope is for every DC character to appear outside the comic books. Correctly.”
Back in November, Michael Shanks — the actor who portrayed Hawkman — hinted that he might return in future episodes as a mentor to Clark Kent.
“Clark and his friends are figuring out what their destinies will be, so there is a ripe opportunity for the Justice Society who had been there done that to offer some tough love teaching,” said Shanks.“The way things land at the end of it all, there’s an open door for Carter Hall to be revisited and possibly be part of further mentoring Clark down the road.”
Johns has also recently hinted that Darkseid and the dark gods of Apokolips may appear next season on “Smallville.”
