New ‘Smallville’ Heroes, ‘The Losers’ Poster And Batman’s Dog In Today’s Twitter Report

Smallville” will be getting a new injection of cast members with Stargirl, Hawkman and Doctor Fate joining the show, and Geoff Johns tweeted a few details last night that viewers will want to know—like whether Hawkman will have wings and how he and Green Arrow will get along.

Elsewhere, dedicated tweeter Andy Diggle slipped Jock a link to the artist’s newly released “Losers” poster and Brian Keene pondered a pitch for Batman’s pet, Ace the Bat-Hound.

Read on to check out each of those tweets, along with what Matt Fraction thinks Tony Stark should carry with him in case of near death. It’s all in the Twitter Report for October 20, 2009.
