Re: Smallville 2014
Smallville is a Superman origin story. It is also the last Superman story that was successful. Superman Returns flopped because it was little more than z rehash of lines from the Donner films and didn't really stand on its own. Although I haven't seen the new Superman film, the bits and pieces that I have seen haven't drawn me to want to check it out. They would have had more success if they did a Superman film that was an extension of the cast and characters developed in Smallville, sort of like the stories happening in the comic series Smallville Season 11.
At this point I think Superman should be given a rest.
