Metropolis: Smallville the Movie??

Caught an enticing rumor for Smallville fans on the Ain’t it Cool webpage today. Take it with a grain of salt as it comes from an unconfirmed source but reportedly they spotted a sign being prepped for next month’s San Diego Comic-Con presentation that reads:

On black, with crimson/red text in the same font lettering that Smallville uses, and a transparent grey Superman "S" watermark behind the text:

METROPOLIS

CHRISTMAS 2010

Then at the bottom is a banner advertising the Smallville presentation, with the time/place (can’t remember)

AIC reports that they are withholding for the moment further details that seem to lend this story some credence, also suggesting that this is a movie length project and not a spin-off series. Christmas 2010 makes sense for a TV movie finale, as the series is expected to conclude it’s 9th and presumably final season in May of that year. While the site poses the question whether or not this may be a big screen feature, that seems doubtful as it would most likely confuse general audiences not familiar with the show, especially with Warner’s unsure stance on the film franchise since the lukewarm reception of Superman Returns.

Despite that within the last couple seasons the show has become more of a guilty pleasure,  I would be very fired up to see this! I have a real soft spot for Smallville and it deserves one hell of a blow out send off. I’m sure fans would love Michael Rosenbaum to return as Lex Luthor and see years of tension, teasing and build up finally pay off in an epic showdown with the Man of Steel, tights and flights and all!
