When One Villain Leaves Smallville, Another Or Two Enters

When One Villain Leaves Smallville, Another Or Two Enters

By Garrett Godwin

Hello, this is Garrett Godwin, and it's time to Go Now.  This is the show that brings the latest on the addictive world that we all know and love so much as the world of entertainment.  And it is all right here at The Student Operated Press (SOP).

 

  • Well, the summer movie season has begun with a superhero that is made of steel, but it's not who you think it is.  It is Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man, the latest film adaptation from Marvel Comics.  In it, Downey is wealthy, playboy industralist Tony Stark who puts on an invincible suit of armor to fight evil.  Gwyneth Paltrow and Terrance Howard co-star.  Gear up with Iron Man, now playing worldwide in theatres.

 

When One Villain Leaves Smallville, Another Or Two Enters

Lex Luthor may be getting closer to discovering future Superman Clark Kent's secret, but Michael Rosenbaum is also getting closer, as he decided to not return to Smallville next season as a regular.  A joint statement from the CW and the new showrunners stated thanks to the actor for giving "a new layer" to Superman's archnemesis, but also said that we haven't seen the last of Lex Luthor.

For next season, the Smallville Powers That Be reported that Doomsday will appear as the new antagoinist for Clark.  For some unfamiliar, Doomsday is known as the one enemy that ever defeated Superman.  Another antagonist is one that is female who is well known to fans "and will set her sights on Clark in ways Lex never could", and the attraction between her and Clark may be more dangerous that kryptonite.

Flash (Ah-Ah!) Gordon Is Back In The Pan

Well, the adventure is over, as SCIFI Channel has cancelled Flash Gordon after one season.  The series is based on the comic strip hero that ends up becoming "Savior of the Universe".  It debuted to strong ratings late last summer, but viewership has been declining since.

However, don't be sad, because you can own the adventure that started it all.  The premiere episode is now available on DVD.

 

Well, that is all the time we have here today, so thank you for joining me. If you like what you hear so far, then check out Del Marbrook’s “Hot Copy” segments and The American Perspective with the lovely, beautiful, and talented Judyth Piazza, here at www.thesop.org

 

This is Garrett Godwin, and once again, I have to Go Now. I’ll see you later.
