Re: SMALLVILLE RETURNS! ...in novel form
This is a great idea - if it's true.
WB may not have wanted Batman on the Smallville TV show, but a novel offers much more flexibility and no real direct conflict with any existing Batman property onscreen.
I still think there's a lot of stories to be told from the Smallville universe - after Clark/Superman pushed Apokolips away, a few years passed (7yrs? I think....) before we saw Clark rip open his shirt on the rooftop at the end of the Finale. You could squeeze a lot of stories into those 7 years.
I'd be particularly interested in reading about what happened right after Superman finally revealed himself to the world by saving it.
I wonder if Tom Welling or any of the production crew from SV would be involved? A lot of the character's stories and motivations came from them, it would only seem fair and consistent that they have some say in the novel.
