Is Warner Bros. Prepping A Movie-Length SMALLVILLE-Related Project Called METROPOLIS??
If this is hoax, itâ€™s a good one, as it comes with a few bits of convincing detail we are not sharing with you.
Someone has written us, claiming to have gotten a glimpse of some signage being prepared for next monthâ€™s â€œSmallvilleâ€ presentation at Comic-Con. His or her description:
On black, with crimson/red text in the same font lettering that Smallville uses, and a transparent grey Superman "S" watermark behind the text:
Then at the bottom is a banner advertising the Smallville presentation, with the time/place (can't remember).
Other info this untested source sent us suggests "Metropolis" is a movie-length project, and not a new series.
Word is â€œSmallvilleâ€ will conclude its 9-year run May 2010, so it makes sense that the CW would tack on a couple more production hours up there in Canada to make a Superman TV-movie that would run seven or so months after the seriesâ€™ conclusion.
But what if Tom Welling isn't putting on the red cape for the small screen? It doesnâ€™t seem like 18 months is enough time to slap together a big-screen "Smallville" sequel, but I also seem to remember Warner Bros. kicking the first three episodes of â€œClone Warsâ€ to cinemas without a lot of notice.
This comes from an untested source, self-described as â€œYodaâ€™s *****,â€ so kindly take it all as rumor.
