Kids' WB! has released a preview of "A Mirror Darkly," the Saturday, Nov. 3 episode of The Batman that guest-stars The Flash.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"The Flash is coming to Gotham City -- and not a moment too soon. The Mirror Master has arrived with a nefarious plot to trap everyone in their own mirror image."

Charlie Schlatter provides the voice of The Flash, and John Larroquette provides the voice of Mirror Master.

The episode was written by Steve Melching and directed by Christopher Berkeley.

Bones star Emily Deschanel said she was happy to be able to dress as Wonder Woman for Tuesday's Halloween episode on Fox.

"They came to me and said, 'How do you feel about like dressing up like Wonder Woman?' and I had thought like they had read my mind," said Deschanel, who had a minor role in Spider-Man 2.

Deschanel said she loved Wonder Woman as a child.

"I was looking through old boxes of memorabilia and I have a tiny little Wonder Woman towel that's all faded," she said. "And I still kept it from when I was a little girl."

In the episode, "Mummy in the Maze," the team gets decked out in costume for the annual Jeffersonian Halloween Ball.

David Boreanaz dressed up as a "squint" in the episode but hinted there might be something more going on under the nerd costume.

Superman Gifts and Collectibles


The CW has released a description of "Blue," the Thursday, Nov. 15 episode of Smallville.

Here's how the network describes the episode:

"Clark (Tom Welling) hears the voice of his biological mother, Lara (guest star Helen Slater), calling for help from Kara's (Laura Vandervoort) crystal and decides to release her, despite Jor-El's warnings. Lara and Clark reunite and she gives him Jor-El's ring, which contains blue kryptonite. As Clark puts it on, he realizes Zor-El (guest star Christopher Heyerdahl) manipulated the whole thing and that blue kryptonite strips him of his powers, enabling Zor-El to take control of the Fortress of Solitude.

"Meanwhile, Chloe (Allison Mack) and Lex (Michael Rosenbaum) each discover Lois (Erica Durance) and Grant (Michael Cassidy) have been seeing each other and warn them to stop."

The episode was written by Todd Slavkin and Darren Swimmer and was directed by Glen Winter.

Adam West will forever be linked as Batman from the 1960s television series, but he's carved out an impressive voiceover career.

West is part of the cast of Family Guy, which recently celebrated production of the show's 100th episode that airs on Fox on Nov. 4.

In the show West plays Mayor Adam West, and he said his willingness to accept the absurd and poke fun at himself were part of the fun of the role.
