Smallville 2 Hour Movie Event: Absolute Justice

November 18, 2009

Hot on the heels of the news that episodes Society & Legends would air as a 2- hour movie event, word has come from Michael Ausiello that the event which is getting cut into a seamless episode/movie will now be called “Absolute Justice.” The episode starring Michael Shanks and Pam Grier, which also marks the return of Phil Morris as Martian Manhunter will air Friday February 5th (in time for Sweeps.)

The Smallville writers on Twitter did confirm that even though these 2 episodes will be merged into one film, we will still only be getting 22 episodes this season.

TV Guide has an exclusive, in depth interview with Michael Shanks talking about his role as Hawkman.

What’s Hawkman’s story?
When we first meet Carter Hall he’s in his museum. We’ll learn he’s a reincarnated prince from a thousand years ago. There is a reference to The Justice Society’s time in the ‘70s, but we have since disbanded.

What advice does he give Clark?
There’s a reference given to him flying, but it’s more of a metaphor to his own personal growth. Clark and his friends are figuring out what their destinies will be, so there is a ripe opportunity for the Justice Society who had been there done that to offer some tough love teaching.

Tom Welling is directing the second episode of this arc. Is he excited or terrified?
I’m sure he’s excited and terrified. The first part is a lot of the character’s back-stories with them in civilian attire. Whereas in part two, Tom gets saddled with a lot of the action elements that will take a lot of time to shoot. He’s also acting throughout the episode he’s directing, which will be quite a task.

Are there references to Society members who aren’t seen in the episodes?
Oh yes. You’ll see a ton of references. This is a fan’s dream. Let’s say there are lots of memories and paraphernalia that people will be familiar with.
