Today a promo came out for the return of Lex Luthor in the Smallville series finale. To be honest, it looks really good. I’m sure all the Smallville fans out there would agree too. I’m just happy to have Lex back. The trailer is below in addition to some more news about the finale.
The changing of believe into evil in the promo was just well done. This is the perfect kind of trailer to bring back longtime fans of the show who had lost interest, or Superman fans who never tried Smallville. I have a feeling the finale is going to pull in some pretty good ratings.
In addition to the promo, the official description of the final epsiode(s) entitled Finale has been released. Doesn’t tell us too much but it’s still exciting to read.
BE THERE AS SMALLVILLE WRAPS UP CLARK KENT’S TEN-YEAR JOURNEY IN AN EPIC TWO-HOUR SERIES FINALE – The story of Clark Kent (Tom Welling) culminates in this epic two-hour series finale as Clark takes the last step to becoming the Man of Steel. With surprise guest appearances, nods to the first few seasons of the series and Michael Rosenbaum’s return as Lex Luthor, this final episode wraps up a decade-long story following one’s man’s journey to becoming the world’s greatest superhero.
Erica Durance, Allison Mack, Justin Hartley, Cassidy Freeman, John Glover, Annette O’Toole and John Schneider also star. Kevin Fair directed “Finale Part 1,” which was written by Al Septien & Turi Meyer and Greg Beeman directed “Finale Part 2,” written by Brian Peterson & Kelly Souders.
The only thing that concerns me is that it references Clark taking the last step towards becoming the Man of Steel. The way that’s phrased leaves a little doubt as to whether we will see Clark in the iconic Superman costume at the end. I’m sure it was phrased that way just to get fans a little riled up and interested though. There’s no way they can end the show without Clark wearing the suit. Guess we’ll find out in a few weeks though!
