If the questions aimed at Smallville executive producers Al Gough and Miles Millar are any indications, fans really want to see Bruce Wayne on the show.

Alas, with Batman hot as a feature-film property in live-action, that's not going to be happening. Appearing at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention at the Shrine Auditorium on Sunday afternoon, the show's creators said they have tried several times to get Bruce Wayne, but they've moved on from that pursuit.

"Sadly, no," Gough said with a smile after the first of several Batman/Bruce Wayne questions during the panel. "It's not our fault. We've tried and tried, but because of the feature-film franchise, they've made that kind of off limits. Unfortunately."

In a rare convention appearance, Gough and Millar handled questions -- often several in rapid-fire succession from a single fan -- for more than 30 minutes and then signed Smallville posters.

They dropped several hints about the future of the series during the panel. For an extensive rundown of the highlights, CLICK HERE.

300 director Zack Snyder said his next project, the long-awaited adaptation of Watchmen, could go before the cameras as early as this summer.

Comics and television veteran J.M. DeMatteis told The Continuum he has written an episode for the second season of Kids' WB!'s Legion of Super Heroes animated series.

Warner Bros. Animation announced late last week that Legion will be returning for a second season.

"I wrote a Timber Wolf story and I think there will be more to do when I get back to New York," DeMatteis told The Continuum during an appearance on Sunday with Abadazad collaborator Mike Ploog at the Los Angeles Comic Book and Science Fiction Convention.

"I was surprised. It was actually a pretty intense episode."

DeMatteis said the second season will see "a shift in focus."

In other Legion news:

* The Continuum has learned that the "destroyer of galaxies from the rich annals of DC Comics" mentioned in the Warner Bros release last week will be Imperiex, who will likely appear starting with the second-season debut.

* The Superman seen in Season 2 will not be the same Superman as seen in Season 1.

* The Fatal Five will be returning next season.
