Some more news about the upcoming season of Smallville.  Firstly, the plot teaser for episode 9×02 has been released.  The episode is entitled Metallo and the information courtesy of KryptonSite.

After being struck by a truck, John Corben (guest star Brian Austin Green) wakes up alone in an abandoned apartment as a man-machine with a Kryptonite heart. Corben realizes he now has superhuman strength and sets out to exact revenge on the Red-Blue Blur, who he perceives to be an irresponsible vigilante. Against Clark’s (Tom Welling) wishes, Lois (Erica Durance) involves herself in the Red-Blue Blur’s investigation, and winds up getting kidnapped by Corben.

The other news is that the CW has issued a press release for the 9th season of the show.  Looks like its going to give some pretty good hints at the direction the show is taking this year. The press release is shown below for all those who are interested.

After the events of last season, Clark takes on the mantle of protector of Metropolis, trading in his familiar red-and-blue for black-and-gray, sticking to the city’s shadows and rooftops to become a solitary sentry simply known as “the Blur.” While Clark wrestles with his identity, feeling forced to choose between his Kryptonian heritage and human past, he’ll encounter even more powerful enemies and allies from across the DC Universe. This season will feature new and past nemeses, including Metallo (Brian Austin Green, “Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles”), the man with the Kryptonite heart; Roulette, a sexy mastermind; the return of Toyman; and the always-treacherous Zod (Callum Blue) as a young Major and leader of an invading alien army, who befriends fellow Kryptonian Clark just as his venomous side is beginning to emerge. This season will also feature an appearance by DC Comics’ first all-star team of superheroes, the Justice Society of America, in an episode penned by renowned comic book writer Geoff Johns, who returns to the show after writing last year’s fan favorite episode, “Legion.”…

The season nine premiere takes place three weeks after Clark and Doomsday’s epic battle. Obsessed with becoming the hero the world needs, Clark is now literally leaving his mark on Metropolis – having fully embraced his Kryptonian side in order to finish training with his father Jor-El, Clark has started wearing the iconic “S”-shield on his chest, and spreads the symbol around the city in an effort to give its people hope.

Whereas Clark is working alone, Chloe feels driven to reunite the disbanded Justice League. Her biggest challenge is Oliver Queen, who’d rather lose himself in underground fight clubs and drunken one-night stands. Oliver’s friends will hatch a plan to bring him back from the edge. Reconnecting with the hero inside of him, Oliver will return with a renewed purpose, even searching out an apprentice in Mia Dearden, DC comics’ teenaged sidekick “Speedy.”

Clark and Oliver will find themselves caught up in a love triangle with Lois, as both men’s passions begin to burn brightly for her. Returning from her trip through time, Lois starts experiencing nightmarish visions of the future. Could they come true? If so, one not-so-troubling image is playing itself over and over in her head – Lois and Clark locked in a romantic, erotic embrace. Meanwhile, Clark continues to be conflicted over his own feelings for Lois. As the sparks fly, Lois and Clark’s relationship will deepen, leading to their first true kiss, and possibly something more.

Meanwhile, Clark and Chloe’s relationship is starting to become strained. No longer content just being Clark’s sidekick, Chloe uses Watchtower’s powerful computers to spin her own web of influence and intrigue, manipulating people like chess pieces in the name of the greater good. But when Chloe begins to believe the ends justify the means, it sends her on a collision course with her friend and ally Clark.

When it comes to master manipulators, Tess Mercer has emerged as the rightful heir to Lex Luthor’s legacy. Always inscrutable, Tess has her hands full this season with an army of Kryptonians, newly arrived from the lost city of Kandor and led by the infamous Zod. However, this incarnation of Zod is younger than the one we remember – he has yet to grow into the power-mad psychopathic dictator, General Zod. Season nine’s Zod may only be a Major, but he’s already a cunning strategist and charismatic leader who knows how to inspire his troops. But behind his magnetism and those piercing eyes, Zod is still very dangerous. When Zod and Clark eventually meet, Clark recognizes that if he can befriend his fellow Kryptonian, he might be able to influence Zod away from becoming an evil, twisted tyrant. While it’s true this Major Zod has certain vulnerabilities, it may only take a handful of betrayals to turn him into Clark’s deadly arch-nemesis.

Looks like there’s all sort of plans for season 9, we’ll just have to see how they turn out.
