David Goyer, executive producer and co-writer of the Blade televison movie for Spike TV, told The Continuum there's a week left of shooting in Vancouver, British Columbia.

"It's going very well," Goyer said of the film, which is serving as a pilot for a Blade series.

Kirk "Sticky" Jones, former front man of Onyx, takes over from Wesley Snipes as Blade.

"Sticky is awesome as Blade," Goyer said. "Very charismatic. Different than Wes, but cool."

Goyer wrote all three Blade films and directed Blade: Trinity. He wrote the TV movie with former JSA comics partner Geoff Johns.

Goyer confirmed that the story is set in Detroit; he Johns are both originally from Southeastern Michigan.

"Although locals will not recognize any landmarks," he said.

Blade won't be on the air until June, but Spike TV is already promoting the show -- both as part of its 2006 lineup and in a spot on its own.

Cyborg will be appearing in a February sweeps episode of Smallville on The WB.

"We have always liked this character from the Titans," series executive producer Al Gough told The Continuum. "We thought he had an interesting dilemma: Am I man or machine? Have I compromised my humanity? Will I find love in this condition?

"The same themes I always loved in Robocop."

No word yet on casting. The episode will likely be titled "Cyborg." Cyborg follows Flash and Aquaman as DC heroes guest-starring on Smallville.

Gough is also executive producing the Aquaman pilot movie with partner Miles Millar. He said the lead role has not been cast yet.

"We are still scouring the seven seas, and a few countries, including Australia, the UK and Canada," Gough said. "We've sifted through literally hundreds of auditions trying to find lightning in a bottle like we did with Tom Welling. I've been impressed with the talent pool, we've seen a lot of very interesting guys."
