Earlier this week it was revealed that actress Alaina Huffman will reprise her role as Black Canary on the ninth season finale of "Smallville." However, she won't be the only superhero to return to the series before the end of the season.
According to Entertainment Weekly, Hawkman, Stargirl and Cyborg will also be coming back in the season finale. Michael Shanks and Britt Irvin first appeared as Hawkman and Stargirl during the Justice Society episode of "Smallville" earlier this season.
Last month, Geoff Johns publicly stated that the Justice Society would return in the ninth season, confirming comments by Shanks last year that Hawkman could return as mentor for Tom Welling's Clark Kent.
Lee Thompson Young ("FlashForward") previously appeared as Cyborg back in the fifth season of "Smallville' before returning for the initial Justice League team up in the sixth season. While the character hasn't appeared on "Smallville" in nearly three years, Cyborg has also played a starring role in the online spinoff, "Smallville Legends: Justice & Doom."
The season finale of "Smallville" is expected to wrap up the year-long Zod (Callum Blue) and Kandorian storyline. A few weeks ago, a rumor suggested that one of the series' major characters will be killed off in that episode.
"Smallville" will also return for a tenth season next fall.
