The CW has released 11 images from "Requiem," the Thursday, Feb. 5 episode of Smallville.

Here's how the network describes the episode, which introduces Toyman to the series:

Oliver believes that Lex is responsible for the blast, but Clark (Tom Welling) and Lana (Kristin Kreuk) learn that the bomber is Winslow Schott (guest star Chris Gauthier), a toymaker and former Queen Industries employee with a grudge against Oliver."

"Requiem" was written by by Holly Henderson and Don Whitehead and directed by Michael Rohl.

Warner Home Video has announced a March 24 release for Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter & Under the Hood on Blu-ray and DVD.

Here's how Warner describes the package:

"They're in the book. And on this disc. From the director of Watchmen and 300 come two tales from the celebrated graphic novel that do not appear in the Watchmen theatrical feature. Tales of the Black Freighter (featuring the voice of 300s Gerard Butler) brings to strikingly animated life the novels richly layered story-within-a-story, a daring pirate saga whose turbulent events may mirror those in the Watchmens world. Stars from the Watchmen movie team in the amazing live-action/CGI Under the Hood, based on Nite Owl's powerful first-hand account of how the hooded adventurers came into existence."

The package will be rated PG-13, as opposed to R for the feature film.

In other Watchmen news, the music video for My Chemical Romance's "Desolation Row" made its North American premiere on iTunes on Friday. The video will be available for purchase for $1.99. The song, a reinterpretation of the Bob Dylan classic, was recorded specifically for Watchmen.

Watchmen: Music From the Motion Picture, which contains the song, is due from Warner Sunset/Reprise Records on March 3, three days before the film hits theaters nationwide.

The video, which was helmed by Watchmen director Zack Snyder, transports the viewer into the world of Watchmen in an alternate 1985. My Chemical Romance is performing at a dive bar, reigning as the lords of anarchy above a moshpit. As the crowd surges back and forth, the scene recalls the glory days of the Sex Pistols, the Ramones, Iggy Pop, and The Dead Kennedys. A fight breaks out and becomes a bloody free-for-all as the band keeps playing. The mayhem spills out onto the street. The cops arrive and drag off the band members who are kicking, spitting, and punching the whole way.
