JUSTICE LEAGUE LIVE-ACTION SERIES? -- UPDATED!

Could a Justice League live-action television series be in the offing?

Aquaman, Flash and Cyborg will be returning to The CW's Smallville -- which has also featured Green Arrow and Martian Manhunter -- for an upcoming episode called "Justice." The episode, which is under tight wraps by the network and Warner Bros. Television, will be one of Smallville's most expensive and ambitious of the season.

Now, a source tells The Continuum that DC Comics heroes will likely again be appearing in another episode of Smallville before the sixth season is over.

Al Gough, executive producer of Smallville, checked in with The Continuum on Wednesday to say there are "no plans" for a Justice League series. He did not comment on whether there will be another episode of Smallville featuring Justice Leaguers.

If it happens, a second episode featuring Justice Leaguers would likely air during May sweeps. While one episode with multiple heroes constitutes a stunt, a second could be easily construed as a pilot of sorts for a Justice League-type show.

Considering the success of Smallville for both The WB and The CW, a spin-off seems a natural idea.

In fact, it has been done before.

An Aquaman pilot, which starred now-Green Arrow Justin Hartley, was developed and produced by Smallville creators Gough and Miles Millar for The WB earlier this year, but was not picked up as a series by The CW. It has since been offered by Warner Bros. for download via iTunes.

Another proposal that has been kicked around is for a series called Metropolis, which would center on The Daily Planet. Gough said there are no currrent plans for a Metropolis spin-off.

Justice League has been attempted in live-action before. In 1997, a campy pilot for Justice League of America was produced for CBS. Never aired, the pilot has circulated at conventions across the country. It featured Flash, Green Lantern, Atom, Fire, Ice and Martian Manhunter, played by David Odgen Stiers.

GHOST RIDER PRESS EVENT: EVA MENDES

The director, Mark Steven Johnson, knows comic books. The star, Nicolas Cage, knows comic books.

Eva Mendes, not so much.

But after two appearances at Comic-Con International in San Diego, she's certainly comfortable with the comics community. Mendes, who plays television reporter/love interest Roxanne Simpson in Ghost Rider, was at ease during the recent Ghost Rider press event at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, discussing the Feb. 16-releasing film with lots of laughs.
