While I must admit I lost touch with Smallville after the third season, not because it was bad; it just happened, I always dreamed of seeing this encounter…
Yes, despite waiting ten years for it to happen on the TV show, Smallville fans are finally going to witness Batman’s first encounter with Superman in the Smallville universe.
Remember when Smallville was meant to be a Batman series… ah, if only.
Yes, DC Comics have confirmed that the Dark Knight himself – and Robin it appears – is set to lock horns with the Man of Steel this September in the Smallville: Season 11 comic #5 and have given us this glorious peek (above).
“I feel like I’ve been sitting on a Christmas present for everyone since January,” series writer Bryan Q Miller wrote on his blog.
“Fans have been waiting for this for a VERY long time. As both a fan and a writer, I am more than pleased to announce the arrival of a MAJOR DC universe player in the second episode of Smallville Season 11.”
Digital Spy report that Batman will feature in a four-part storyline title ‘Detective’, in which his hunt for his parents’ killer puts him on a collision course with Clark Kent.
