The 2013 KryptonSite Awards: They're Still Happening
Although Smallville is over as a TV series, we're still going to do our annual KryptonSite Awards this summer, as we do this time every year... this time, we'll be focusing on the best and worst elements of the Smallville Season 11 comic book series.
However, you'll still have to wait a little bit: We're going to wait until the conclusion of the current story arcs, "Argo" and "Valkyrie," before starting the fun. That gives us six story arcs to choose from. Hopefully the delay is still worth it! If you're in a voting mood, though, we should be doing awards for Arrow on GreenArrowTV shortly.

Tom Welling Is Producing A New TV Project!
Tom Welling is putting on his producer's hat again for a project he is working on for the USA Network with Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas.
(As an aside: We know KryptonSite itself hasn't been updated a whole lot in recent months, with the focus going to KSiteTV and its satellite sites. Stay tuned, and you'll see that things will be back... a bit. In a case like this one we wanted to be sure Tom's news ended up on a site that can be found in places like Google News for maximum exposure.)

Kristin Kreuk Talks About A New Superman & Lana Lang In Man Of Steel
Zap2It caught up with Kristin Kreuk, Smallville's Lana Lang, and asked her her take on the new version of Superman in this summer's new movie, Man Of Steel... and also got her opinion on a new actress, Jadin Gould, playing Lana Lang.
"I think 'Superman' is a beautiful story. Of all the superheroes I know about, because I do not claim to be an expert in that realm, he really represents morality and goodness and true humanity in the best of ways. I think the movie could be great," Kristin says, sounding a bit like her "Lana Lang" predecessor, Annette O'Toole, would when asked about Lana.
"Every incarnation is different," Kristin says. "This isn't the Lana Lang of Smallville, it's another one. Even when I take on a role, I'm not comparing it to others. It's a different character, a different project, a different version."
Fan favorite Bryan Q. Miller, writer of several Smallville episodes, several comics, and several Smallville comics, including the currently-ongoing Season 11 series, wass the co-writer of the most recent episode of The CW's Arrow.
Yes, this marks yet another medium in which Bryan can write Oliver Queen. How will this different Arrow stack up compared to the way he wrote him in Smallville? Guess we'll have to see.
Bryan is the fourth writer for Arrow's first season who has a Smallville pedigree. Others who have written for both series include Wendy Mericle, Drew Z. Greenberg, and Geoff Johns. Johns' most recentt episode, "Dead To Rights," is directed by his "Legion" collaborator Glen Winter.
Some people missed the memo that April Fool's Day happens on KryptonSite every year, so that they should beware of tricky articles... and this year, we had some doozies: That Smallville was returning to The CW with a continuation series in early 2014 (it's not), and that Tom Welling would be reunited with Kristin Kreuk on Beauty And The Beast (that's not happening either, yet, at least).
One thing that ISN'T an April Fool is that the look of the news articles will probably be what KryptonSite itself will look like soon. But if you missed this year's April Fool's gags...
A Smallville Reunion On Beauty And The Beast? (Kristin Kreuk Interview)
At the WonderCon convention in Anaheim, California, we caught up with the former Lana Lang herself, Kristin Kreuk, and asked about the possibilities of an on-screen reunion with her real-life friends Erica Durance and Allison Mack on her new show, Beauty And The Beast.
Five years after departing Smallville with a Kryptonite kiss, Lana Lang is returning to the story.
TV Guide revealed this morning that the character Lana Lang will return in the next digital "side arc" of the Smallville Season 11 comic series that Bryan Q. Miller is writing. The story is called "Valkyrie," and it sees Lana teaming up with Lois Lane in the Congo. "A lot has happened in Lana's absence," Miller told TV Guide.
The interior art is by Cat Staggs who has done an amazing job with the digital covers.
You can see some preview art and read some quotes from Mr. Miller about the story arc, along with more spoilers, at TVGuide.com.

See Allison Mack In Her New Movie Marilyn!
Allison Mack stars in a new movie that was created by Smallville crew members including director Christopher Petry, and you can now see the movie and purchase it online.
It's called Marilyn and here's what it is about:
Before his passing in 2007, Patrick "Paddy" Mitchell became one of the most famous bank robbers in North America. Written while incarcerated in Leavenworth Prison, Marilyn is a beautiful and raw story based on one of Paddy's adventures.
Michael Grant is one of the most successful and sought after people in his field. If he weren't an escaped convict robbing banks for a living, he'd probably enjoy his notoriety.
While on the lam and robbing banks for enough money to keep afloat, Michael meets and falls in love with a much younger woman also on the run from the law – the beautiful, uninhibited Marilyn. As they find themselves punched in the eye by love at the most inopportune time, both Michael and Marilyn start reevaluating everything they once thought important.
Blanketed by a critically acclaimed rock n' roll soundtrack and original music recorded for the film, Marilyn is photographed on old 16mm film stock and exudes a vintage film look inspired by movies like Vanishing Point and Easy Rider.
Told by a man who actually lived it, Marilyn is a romantic tale of one bankrobbers life on the lam, a young woman's journey to find herself through music, and a love that glues it all together.

Lucy Lane Gets Super Powers In The CW's Tomorrow People Pilot!
Peyton List, who played Lois Lane's younger sister Lucy in the episodes "Lucy" and "Ambush," has been cast in The CW pilot The Tomorrow People as "Cara," a young woman with several powers including telepathy.
The Tomorrow People is based on a British series from the 70's as well as a 1990's remake, comes from producers from Chuck, The Vampire Diaries, and Arrow, and if the pilot should do well, it should land on The CW's 2013-2014 schedule.

Information about the next story arc in the Smallville Season 11 comic book series is now out, and it seems the next arc, "Argo," features some super-friends - Booster Gold and the Legion of Super-Heroes! Plus with a title like "Argo," Kara can't be that far behind, right?
DC Comics has also announced they will be printing "Effigy," the "side story" featuring Batman and John Jones.

Bryan Q. Miller Takes Readers Earthward - With Your Help!
Bryan Q. Miller - yes, the same guy who wrote several fan-favorite Smallville episodes as well as the currently-running Season 11 comic book series - is working with a very talented artist named Marcio Takara on a new all-ages graphic novel - IN SPACE! - called Earthward.
If you follow comics with any regularity, you'd know that something appropriate for everyone is harder and harder to come by, and this could be the antidote for that. Also, coming from Bryan, who's impressed with his Smallville comics as well as Batgirl (come back Stephanie Brown!), you should have an idea that you would get a good read. BUT... (there's always a "but.")
The project needs funding before it can be published! So, if you want to help Bryan to bring this to life, check out their Kickstarter page to make it happen! Surely the loyal KryptonSite crowd can push them their goal, right?
Smallville DVD Sets Massively Discounted For Thanksgiving!
With it being the holidays, a lot of DVD sets are now going on sale... and for Smallville fans who might not have the DVDs yet (such things exist?) you might be in luck.
Amazon.com is listing season sets right now for under $10 and Blu-ray sets for under $20. Might be a great time to pick them up; no idea on how long they'd last. This is in addition to the under $150 complete series set which is mentioned below. Pick them up and support this site!
Nearly 17 months after Smallville closed up shop, the character of Oliver Queen is back on TV tonight with a new series called Arrow.
It's not Justin Hartley -- instead, you can find him on Emily Owens, MD which premieres on Tuesday -- but you will probably find that you like this show, and the new actor, Stephen Amell, a whole lot. Smallville alums like Glen Winter are on the Arrow crew, and Geoff Johns is already set to co-writ ean episode.
Smallville Season 11 Printed Comic #7 Cover & Solicitation

Smallville Season 11 Digital Comics Are Bringing In New Readers
A recently-posted interview with DC Comics' Jim Lee and Dan DiDio makes a mention of the Smallville Season 11 digital comics and how they have brought new readers into the fold.
"Through comiXology we had some data from our sales on Smallville and about 40% of people buying or downloading that comic book were new consumers; they had opened up new accounts," Jim Lee said at ICv2. "To me, that's a staggering large number and I think it points to the way we’re going to see a lot of growth, especially in terms of new readers."
Stephanie Brown In Smallville Season 11? Not Anymore...
It was confirmed today at Comic-Con that former Batgirl Stephanie Brown, who was the featured character in Bryan Q. Miller's excellent Batgirl series, will not be the woman behind the Nightwing mask in the second arc of the Smallville Season 11 comic.
For whatever reason, DC has decided that "Nightwing" will be Barbara Gordon, the best known and current character to be known as Batgirl.
Kristin Kreuk Talks About Returning To TV In Beauty And The Beast
KSiteTV caught up with Smallville's Lana Lang, Kristin Kreuk, on Thursday at Comic-Con, where she spoke about her new role on The CW's upcoming series Beauty And The Beast. She also talked about what lured her back to TV.
We've waited 11 year for it to happen - and now, thanks to Bryan Q. Miller and DC Comics, Superman and Batman will finally meet in the second story arc of the Smallville Season 11 comic series, titled "Detective."
The stories themselves will begin release digitally in August with the first collected issue coming in September.

K-Site Interview: Bryan Q. Miller Talks About The Smallville Season 11 Comic!
Quite a treat today, as I got to speak with Bryan Q. Miller, popular Smallville writer and author of the upcoming Smallville Season 11 comics. It was quite fun to do another interview related to the show after 11 months!
The first digital story comes out this Friday, and in the interview, Bryan talks about a number of things, including Lex, the costume, flying, Lois & Clark, Chloe & Oliver, Lana Lang, Batman, Wonder Woman, and more.
Over at KryptonSite's general TV news site, KSiteTV, we've been adding some new writers to the mix, and one of those new writers, Derek B. Gayle, just wrote a column about underrated Smallville episodes from the later years, particularly aimed at those who may have dropped off from the series early.
We're starting to get e-mails about a page on the Internet Movie Database about an "upcoming television series called Metropolis" starring Tom Welling and Erica Durance.
Unfortunately, this is another case of IMDb taking articles that are user-submitted, including wishful thinking from someone with an overactive imagination. It's not happening.
Warner Bros. has a new Superman movie, The Man Of Steel, out in 2013, when this would be purportedly happening. But more importantly... as much as we should "always hold on to Smallville," to spread false information like this is stupid and wrong. It's leading people on to believe something that's not true.
Not to mention, shouldn't Tom, Erica, and others be allowed to move on and do new things?
So, whoever it was who submitted it to IMDb as "fact" - you're an idiot. And if you're a "news source" that hopped on this fake news, you're even worse.
Remember IMDb submissions also said Laura Vandervoort and Kristin Kreuk were appearing in the "Finale," and that fake fan rumors said Michael Rosenbaum would be a series regular in Season 10. Didn't happen, and never was going to happen.
Thankfully, if I want to see Super-action with Tom, Erica, and the rest, there'll be the complete series DVD in just a month.

Ten Years Ago: The Series Premiere Of Smallville!
Ten years ago, on October 16, 2001, the incredibly awesome WB Network (please come back!) aired a new show called Smallville, a show that introduced Clark Kent at a time before he was Superman.
It's still hard to believe it has been so long.
On our newly-improved forum, we've been inviting people to reminisce about where they were and what they were doing when the show premiered 10 years ago.
Smallville: The Complete Tenth Season DVD Deleted Scenes & Commentaries Confirmed!
Thanks to Andreas, we now know more of what to expect from the Smallville: The Complete Tenth Season DVD set as far as extras go.
The Deleted Scenes on the DVD will be from "Shield," "Supergirl," "Abandoned," "Beacon," and "Scion." (What, no "Finale?" Didn't they say there were deleted scenes from that one? Very disappointing.)
Commentaries will be "Lazarus" with writers Don Whitehead and Holly Henderson with actors Allison Mack and Cassidy Freeman, and "Dominion" with Brian Peterson, Kelly Souders, Justin Hartley, and Callum Blue.
Smallville: The Complete Tenth Season DVD Extras Revealed!
We already knew what the extras would be for the Complete Series Smallville DVD set, and now we have a list of the extras you'd find on the Season 10 DVD.
It is safe to assume these features will also be on the Complete Series discs.
Here's what we'll get:
- Commentaries on 2 Key Episodes
- Unaired Scenes
- Smallville: Coming Home: Cast and Creators Reflect on the Landmark 200th Episode Homecoming, in Which Clark Kent Experiences
- Transformative Events on the Way to His Final Destiny
- My Fathers, My Son: How Clark Kent’s Fathers/Son Relationships Evolved over the Series’ 10 Years
- How Do We Do Music Video
No official announcement is made about which episodes are getting commentaries, though we've heard rumblings that they might be "Dominion" (with director Justin Hartley) and the series finale. Take that with a grain of salt, however, as we do not have official confirmation.
Exclusive Interview: Greg Beeman Talks Falling Skies, The Smallville Finale, & More
Greg Beeman returned to Smallville earlier this year for the show's final episode. Now, he's working on Falling Skies, a new drama series airing Sunday nights on TNT.
For our general TV news site, KSiteTV, we've interviewed Mr. Beeman about his new show. Within he talks a bit about what it was like to do Smallville's final installment, and he also talks about the casting of a past Smallville favorite who appears every week in Falling Skies.
OnTheRedCarpet.com caught up with Tom Welling on Monday night and the notion of a Smallville movie was one of the subjects talked about. Interestingly, the subject had come out many years before. "We talked about that between, I think it was season three and four, when the characters were moving from high school to what will be college. We played with the idea and what we found was there wasn't time," Welling said.
"It would've been fun to do a transition movie for those characters. But who knows in the future," Tom continued. When asked more directly if the opportunity came up for a Smallville movie, if he would take it, Tom said "Sure, I don't see why not."
Tom also seems thankful for the time he spent doing the show. "I can't imagine anything beyond family that could have such an effect on a career as Smallville did for me," he said.
For now, Tom is looking forward to Warner Bros.' future Superman plans as much as many fans are. "They have other plans for Superman, which I'm a big fan of and I can't wait to see what they do," he said.

Triplet's "Finale" Review!
It's time for the last one... C.M. Houghton ("Triplet")'s review of the series finale of Smallville is now posted!
Thank You: A Message From KryptonSite's Webmaster Craig
If you're reading this, you probably either just finished the Smallville series finale or saw it a few hours ago. As I write this, it's been a little over an hour and I'm still not sure what to think. I enjoyed the episode greatly, and three was a whole lot to be excited about, but my immediate feeling right now is as though a friend has died.... a friend I have welcomed into my home and my heart for ten years. So, if you ask me "what did you think?" Let me watch it a few more times and get the emotion out first.
I think it was just luck that KryptonSite came in and somehow became the web resource on record for a lot of things related to Smallville. It was here when the pilot was still in the process was filming, and it was here when it was announced The WB would merge with UPN to become The CW. The site saw some good times - like the announcement that legendary Superman Christopher Reeve would guest star - and some sad, like when the news came in that Jeph Loeb's son Sam had passed away. Spoilers came and went, with some more warmly received by others, and "shipper wars" often probably caused more anger on the forums than not, but somehow this site made it through.
I know I've been very lucky. Meeting cast members and writing the companion books... it really was a dream come true. And I mean that - I never expected that to happen. I've made some great friends along the way too, here at KryptonSite, or on Twitter, or other places in the online and real-life Smallville circle. Great fellow webmasters, podcasters, and other TV journalists - very cool people. I know others were also so lucky - just ask original KryptonSite mods Mark and Gemma, who got married a few years back and had their first child last year. (No, it wasn't a rapidly-aging exploding baby). All of us, really, can probably say our lives have changed in these ten years. When Smallville began, I was 23 years old and working at a newspaper in Maryland. Now I'm 33 and I write about TV in California. Some of the show's biggest fans weren't even in high school yet when the show premiered!
There probably won't be another show like Smallville again - and if there is, it will be an amazing feat. A show that lasts ten years with the same primary lead actor is mostly unheard of. Tom Welling did it, though, and people stayed interested. Big shoutout goes to Tom - who owned the role for 10 years but also became a fantastic director in the process. I know we'll be seeing more of him, either in front of of behind the cameras.
I think about the people who have been so helpful to me over the years making this site work. Al Gough & Miles Millar led the way, being some of the first showrunners to understand the importance of an online fan base. After they left, Todd Slavkin & Darren Swimmer and then of course Kelly Souders & Brian Peterson were always supportive as showrunners. Susan and Suzanne (don't get them confused at a high schol reunion) - thank you for all of your support and putting up with me and forgiving when I'd mess up from time to time. And to the cast. In addition to Tom... Michael, Kristin, Allison, Justin, Cassidy, Eric, John Schneider, Aaron, Erica, and Laura... you are the ones I interacted with the most, which is not to slight anyone else... but you all have been a pleasure to interview and interact with. Special appreciation to John Glover and Annette O'Toole, two of the kindest individuals I've ever met in ten years of covering Smallville, for taking me out to dinner when I was in Vancouver for the Season 6 book. That meant to much to me. Even the guest stars I'd talked to and gotten to know have been wonderful people, probably too much to name. And the folks I worked with on the books - Chris Cerasi, Steve Korte, and the revolving door of editors from the Smallville Magazine - THANK YOU for all of your support.
Smallville had one of the best and most hard-working crews in all of television. When the writers' strike happened during Season 7, Smallville missed only two episodes - a testament to the power and the talent of the creative people there. I'm not listing names there, or among the incredible writers and producers who I've talked to who have also been supportive of this site over the years because again, I'd be worried I'd leave someone out by accident - but you are amazing, and I hope to see your names in many projects in the future. One of the saddest things about Smallville ending is knowing that team won't exist anymore up in Vancouver, or in the production office down here. I still wish there had been a spin-off to keep that "team" together.
The Smallville fan base was so passionate, and I think that's a big reason the show lasted as long as it did. Sometimes it got mean. But I always have thought that to bring out such emotion from its fans, the show must have done something right. Apathy is the worst feeling a TV show fan can have, and Smallville fans never had that. At the end of the day, we all did have something in common - we loved the show. Even when there was complaining, we complained because we loved. Or at least that's how I look back at it.
I'd like to call out "Triplet" (aka C.M. Houghton) who worked so hard to bring new Smallville reviews in every week for several years now, and to Russ Dimino whose "Many Faces Of..." and other columns were always a treat. And I'd like to thank the team of KryptonSite mods for doing a great job of keeping the peace. With over 50,000 forum members, it's not an easy task!
218 episodes is so cool. And the fact that so many people came back for the end... it felt like a reunion. This is the second Superman TV series I actively covered (the first being Lois & Clark) and I hope it's not the last. When it happens again, I hope as many Smallville people as possible come back in the way that folks like Christopher Reeve, Margot Kidder, Dean Cain, and Teri Hatcher did.
Many people have asked me what I'm going to do now that Smallville is over. Am I closing the site? Of course not! As long as I have a say in it, KryptonSite will exist as an archive for 10 years of Smallville. Now that I have more time on my hands, maybe I can even finally sort out old articles so they're easier to search, and maybe I can finally fix things like the cast and episode guide pages. The forum will still exist, but don't be surprised if it moves (keeping all of the old posts, of course) to the KSiteTV domain. So if you're worried your old posts or fanfiction will disappear... they won't. KryptonSite will still hopefully be relevant with Man of Steel News, a special sub-section of the site dedicated to news about next year's Superman movie, The Man Of Steel. This page right here will continue to exist to promote the projects of Smallville alumni as they move forward to the future. Just because their show is over doesn't mean the whole story is.
I was hoping we'd have new superhero TV with Wonder Woman this Fall, and apparently it's not happening but that's probably for the best. If you've enjoyed KryptonSite and the kind of thing you've seen here, though, I hope you'll check out KSiteTV - it's basically a generalized TV website focusing on whatever TV I feel like covering, but in hopefully a KryptonSite-like style. Maybe there will be more individual sites like this one, and there certainly will be more if there are some comic book projects TV on the way. Any individual sites for other upcoming shows and you'd have to make suggestions, though right now I'm leaning toward keeping it all at KSiteTV.
I'd like to build Avengersite and JusticeSite.net as good locations for Marvel and DC movies, respectively, though they're rather small as it currently stands, and while V and Human Target have recently ended, a site for The Vampire Diaries still exists in the site network at VampireSite.net and you can read updates on all of these things at the KSiteTV/KryptonSite Twitter Feed. (Don't everybody leave me after tonight!)
And that seems like a novel. Sorry to take up your time, the photos and forums you're looking for can be found below. :) I just needed to get this out while it was all still in my head.Thank you all for being a part of KryptonSite, and thanks again to Smallville for bringing all of us together. Oh yeah - and this summer we're doing the KryptonSite Awards again for Season 10... and then Summer 2012, assuming anyone's still around, we'll do it all over again for the entire series. Hope to see you!
"Always hold on to Smallville."

A Letter From Brian Peterson & Kelly Souders To Smallville's Fans
Smallville's Executive Producers Brian Peterson & Kelly Souders just sent a letter to share with all of you... the fans of Smallville... on this historic, exciting, but also very sad day. Here's what they have to say:
To the Greatest Fans We Could Have Wished for,
It’s hard to know where to start. We know that we wouldn’t be writing this without you. We wouldn’t have met all the amazing people we’ve worked with over the years without you. We wouldn’t have had a chance to craft our skills, be part of the world’s greatest mythology or make a difference in people’s lives without you. For that, we are forever grateful to your support of the show. This last few weeks have been crowded with press interviews and they all ask what we hope will be the impact of Smallville. And the answer is simple because it’s the same impact the show has had on us: hope. Knowing each week there were millions of people in the world who tuned into this show because they believe in something greater, because they believe in justice, because they believe heroes exist, has humbled us and inspired us both. It’s hard to find anything in the world that is seen as pure good, and to us, that’s what Superman and Smallville is all about. Over the years, we’ve heard from many of you (we just moved into our new offices and there’s bamboo, paper cranes and flowers on our desk to remind us!). Hearing what this show has meant to people means everything to us. We cannot say thanks to fans without saying thanks to the hundreds and hundreds of people who have sunk their heart and a lot of sleepless hours into this show out of passion. No one can understand the sheer force of nature it has taken twenty-two times a year to bring this show to life. No one sees the late-night-caffeined-up hours spent in small offices both in Los Angeles and Vancouver that bring sets to life, costumes to life, words to the page, shots to screen, emotion to the camera and beautiful images that will remain in our memories.
We won’t say “goodbye,” we’ll say “til next time,”
Kelly and Brian and Everyone here in the Smallville family
The Smallville series finale airs at 8PM tonight on The CW. And thanks to you, Kelly and Brian, as well as everyone else who gave us Smallville week after week. Your hard work was greatly appreciated.
Tonight: The FINAL EPISODE of Smallville!
After ten years and 218 episodes, it's finally time for Clark Kent to become a (Super) man.
Tonight at 8PM on The CW, we'll see a wedding, the return of Lex Luthor, a coming Apokalips... and maybe even some surprises that miraculously didn't end up online prior to the air. We'll see Clark Kent embrace his destiny... and we will finally learn how this story ends in a two-hour series finale.
It's not quite time yet to say goodbye. We'll get to that once the episode has aired. But thanks, as ALWAYS for visiting. Let's pray the forums don't crash tonight!
Previously On Smallville: What You May Have Missed
Did you stop watching Smallville, but you still want to see the final episode on Friday night? Or do you know someone who may have dropped off?
You're in luck.
Russ Dimino has written a recap of what you may have missed with all (well, most) of your favorite characters, so you don't feel behind when you tune in tonight. Chances are there will be a great "Previously" on the show itself, but it doesn't hurt to be prepared with extra info.
Every episode of Smallville from Seasons 1 through 9 is now available in regular definition and in HD through iTunes. That's everything from the series pilot all the way through to "Salvation" - a great way to catch up in the weeks leading to the Sept. 24 season premiere if you don't have the DVDs already!
KryptonSite was the first website created to focus exclusively on The WB's Smallville back in 2001. In the nine-plus years since, it has been the premier location for the latest news, images, and spoilers regarding the show.
KryptonSite webmaster Craig Byrne has written five books about the series, and the site's success has spawned many spin-off sites for series such as Birds of Prey, Heroes, and V. The site network's latest ventures include KSiteTV, a general TV news site/blog, and Avengersite, focusing on Marvel Comics movies and television.
