Geoff Johns opened up with some episode titles and director info for his two-part "Smallville" story that's coming up, and Tom Welling will direct the second part, titled "Legends," according to those tweets. Johns said he has the utmost confidence that Hawkman, Dr. Fate and Stargirl will be treated with respect.
Todd Nauck, meanwhile, showed some tweet respect to Johns, dedicating a Slurpee pic to him. You can find that, along with Chip Zdarsky's Astro Boy artwork, Edgar Wright's evaluation of "The Vampire's Assistant" and Mark Waid's post from Singapore.
They're all waiting after the jump in the Friday Twitter Report for October 23, 2009.
"Smallville" pt 1: @GeoffJohns0 Yes, my "Society" episode of SMALLVILLE is actually an insane DCU infused two-part epic. Part I is "Society" and Part II is "Legends."
-Geoff Johns, Writer ("Blackest Night," "The Flash")
"Smallville" pt 2: @GeoffJohns0 Glen Winter is directing "Society" and Tom Welling is directing "Legends." They both brought so much to Legion.
Astro Boy pt 1: @zdarsky I gone and drew me an Astro Boy for the paper today: http://bit.ly/2xK1QT

@edgarwright Saw "The Vampire's Assistant". Not a lot happens. He makes some phone calls, books a few taxis, takes some bloody shirts to the drycleaners.

@David_Hahn "You could be flippin' burgers at McDonalds." When was the last time a burger was actually flipped at McDonalds, 1986?
