Speedy & Wonder Twins Hit SMALLVILLE


IGN reports:


September 1, 2009 - Get ready to freaking activate! Two semi-infamous Super Friends alumni are about to make their live action debut, as The Wonder Twins come to Smallville.

TVGuideMagazine.com says Zan and Jayna will show up in the eighth episode of Season 9. And yes, Gleek the blue monkey will be seen as well. We're guessing/hoping there will be a heavy amount of humor involved in the depiction of these much-mocked characters.

Meanwhile, yet another DC Comics character will debut soon, as Speedy is introduced on Smallville. There have been different incarnations of the Green Arrow sidekick in the comics, but the Smallville version will be based on the current incarnation, Mia Dearden. Like in the comics, Mia will be HIV positive. Says Executive Producer Kelly Souders, "She has a sordid past and crosses paths with Oliver Queen in some shady places. But he gives her hope."

Can't wait to see those Wonder Twins!

    So, is Mia going to be about 5 years old?

    I've always loved the Wonder Twins, so it should be interesting to see how Smallville will f%ck them all up.

    Why the hate on Smallville? It's a separate timeline/universe from the DCU so it can do whatever it wants. And, so far, I've enjoyed what they've done in recent seasons! The Legion episode was great!

    I rather enjoy seeing them do their own interpretations of characters. I liked Green Arrow, Zatanna and Black Canary in any case. Legion was cool too, but I wanted them to appear more in the series. So I'm looking forward to seeing the Justice Society, Speedy and even the Wonder Twins this year.

    My issue is... Well... It's been NINE freakin' years! When is Clark going to put on the damn costume already?! And I mean the GOOD one, not this half-assed black one with the matrix coat like in the preview? They character is in what? 27 years old now? The actor is like 35 or something.
