Smallville news -- and much more!!!


The road to new DC Comics movies hit a couple of speedbumps on Friday with separate announcements from Joss Whedon and David Goyer that they were off the Wonder Woman and Flash films, respectively.

Both had been attached to write and direct the respective films. Warner Bros. could not be reached for comment on either project on Friday.

In a posting at the, Whedon wrote:

"I'm no longer slated to make Wonder Woman. What? But how? My chest... so tight! Okay, stay calm and I'll explain as best I can. It's pretty complicated, so bear with me. I had a take on the film that, well, nobody liked. Hey, not that complicated.

"Let me stress first that everybody at the studio and Silver Pictures were cool and professional. We just saw different movies, and at the price range this kind of movie hangs in, that's never gonna work. Non-sympatico. It happens all the time. I don't think any of us expected it to this time, but it did. Everybody knows how long I was taking, what a struggle that script was, and though I felt good about what I was coming up with, it was never gonna be a simple slam-dunk. I like to think it rolled around the rim a little bit, but others may have differing views.

"The worst thing that can happen in this scenario is that the studio just keeps hammering out changes and the writer falls into a horrible limbo of development. These guys had the clarity and grace to skip that part. So I'm a free man."

Wrote Goyer on his myspace page:

"Well, I've been waiting a few months to relate this news -- but I am sad to say that my version of The Flash is dead at WB. The God's honest truth is that WB and myself simply couldn't agree on what would make for a cool Flash film. I'm quite proud of the screenplay I turned it. I threw my heart into it and I genuinely think it would've been the basis of a ground-breaking film. But as of now, the studio is heading off in a completely different direction. I expect you'll hear of some new developments on that front shortly.

"But in happier news, I'll soon be able to report on what I've been doing INSTEAD of The Flash. Stay tuned."

It's the second breakdown of a Goyer comics-to-film project this year; Spike TV's Blade: The Series, for which Goyer executive produced, was not picked up for a second season after a run of 13 hours.

Although The Batman hasn't been picked up for a fifth season yet, executive producer Alan Burnett told The Continuum work is starting on new episodes.

"That's a script right there," Burnett said, pointing to his computer screen, during The Continuum's recent trip to Warner Bros. Animation in Sherman Oaks, Calif.

"If there's a next season, this last season leads into it," he said. "Excuse me for being cryptic, but they like to make announcements at the appropriate time."

With a two-part season-ender that involves an alien invasion and the Martian Manhunter, would a new season continue to broaden Batman's world?

"It's not going to get smaller, OK?" Burnett said, laughing. "It could very well. I don't want to talk too specifically. We're in the early state of saying, OK, if we go in this direction, where is the arc of the whole thing and what new villainy can bring into it and all that. There's a lot of things we're formulating right now, so I don't want to be too specific about anything.

"And who knows if we're going to get it?"

In other The Batman news:

* Saturday's new episode is "Artifacts," featuring Jerry O'Connell as the voice of Nightwing.

Here's how the episode is described:

"One thousand years into the future Gotham City is terrorized by a dangerous villain from it's past. Can the city defend itself from such a threat without the Batman?"
