It might take some time before fans get their very own "Justice Society of America" movie, but the DC Comics heroes are at least finding their way to the small screen.
The Source has unveiled an exclusive teaser from "Absolute Justice," the upcoming two-hour episode of "Smallville" that puts Clark Kent into contact with various members of the Justice Society. The episode debuts February 5th.
"It's the first live action Justice Society of America," explained DC Comics writer Geoff Johns, who penned the "Absolute Justice" script. "Hawkman, Doctor Fate and, my personal favorite, Stargirl."
"But don't expect them to be the [only] ones you see," he added. "Look closely in this episode. There's more cameos and easter eggs than Green Lanterns."
The cameos revealed in The Source's exclusive clip are few, save for a flash of the previously seen Hawkman at the episode's end. Easter eggs, however, are another story. Between Ted Grant's boxing gloves, Alan Scott's mask and lantern and Jay Garrick's winged helmet — not to mention an enormous mural depicting the whole roster, including Hawkgirl, the Spectre, Sandman and Doctor Midnight — it's clear that Johns is digging deep into his DC know-how for the upcoming episode.
As for the episode's plot, the official synopsis reveals that Clark and his pals are forced to join forces with the JSA in order to "stop a killer before he murders another member of the retired superhero group."
