Pa Kent is back! A few months ago it was announced that John Schneider would return for “Smallville’s” tenth and final season and now we’ve got the pictures to prove it. The CW (via Collider) have released several images from the September 24th premiere episode, “Lazarus,” that shows the father and son sharing an intimate moment. Check out the rest of the photos.
Don’t these images just warm your heart? Jonathan Kent hasn’t been a regular on “Smallville” for years and it’s nice that he’ll be back before the show ends its run. The character initially died of a heart attack in season 5, which left Clark and his mother broken. In “Lazarus”, it looks like his son find himself back on the Kent farm doing some much needed soul searching.
Don’t you miss the Kent Farm and its huge overarching presence on the show? Hopefully, this season will revisit all of the elements that made us all fall in love with “Smallville” 10 years ago. The relationship between the Kent family was one of the best things about it. Doesn’t that shot of Jonathan holding Clark make you want to shed a tear?
What do you think of John Schneider’s cameo on Smallville? What do you think he’s talking to Clark about?
Now that Paramount Pictures has signed on actors Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner (The Hurt Locker) for the fourth "Mission: Impossible" movie, the studio is now focusing on filling the role of a young female operative.

It seems that the majority of CBM is split down the middle when it comes to which of these actors should be Chris Nolan's #1 choice to play Superman in his next big screen outing, so here's your chance to decide…
So, Brandon Routh or Tom Welling? If you had asked me a year ago I probably would have said neither of them. However, Routh has really impressed me recently in Chuck and and although the Superman Returns direction/script was appalling, there's no denying that he made a great Clark Kent. Tom Welling meanwhile has been preparing for the role of Superman for 10 years during his tenure on Smallville and despite the fact some dreadful story lines have been thrown his way over the years, he's shown again and again that he could handle the responsibility of playing the big screen version of the character. Furthermore, both actors have recently expressed a great amount of interest in playing the Man of Steel in Nolan's forthcoming reboot, so it's not hard to imagine they both have a decent shot of getting the role.
Of course, the past links to Superman which make them such fan favourites are also the very things which could be the downside of either of them once again reprising the role. As far as we know, this Chris Nolan scripted movie is supposed to be a fresh start for the character. Will regular movie-goers look at it as either a sequel to Superman Returns or Smallville? A new supporting cast for either actor would probably get rid of any confusion as would the time that's elapsed since Routh last played him. (at least 6 years by the time this new movie comes out) I've seen plenty of other great suggestions for who should play Superman but as the casting decisions for Captain America and Spider-Man surely prove, the studios very rarely pick the actors we want but still manage to make even better ones than we ever thought of!
And that is why, rather than list ALL of the favourite candidates here, I thought I'd see once and for all which of the two most popular picks really is the #1 choice with fans. Any Superman article posted here on CBM is always dominated by these two actors so now it's time to decide! For those of you who want neither of them, I've included an "Other" option as it'll be just as interesting to see how many of you there are. As usual, results will be announced in three days time on Thursday, September 2nd.
Smallville exec producers Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders said the show’s 10th and final season would feature nods to the past nine years, and this haunting image of Lois being “crucified” in the Sept. 24 premiere, “Lazarus,” confirms that they were not lying.
Speaking of nostalgia trips, an exclusive first look at John Schneider’s return as the late Jonathan Kent awaits you after the jump.

Back in the 1970s, JoAnna Cameron's portrayal of Isis on the CBS Saturday morning series inspired the imagination of many a young man. In the 2000s, Erica Durance has done the same thing as Lois Lane on Smallville. Now the actress will be playing Isis on an upcoming episode's final season.
Here's the story by way of the Superman Homepage: "Holy Moley! Ausiello TV over at EW.com has a surprising revelation for "Smallville" fans. On the upcoming season 10 episode 'Isis', Erica Durance will play the character of the same name from the DCU. O Mighty Isis first appeared on The Secrets of Isis as a spin-off of the 1970's Shazam! live-action television show. There her secret identity was school teacher Andrea Thomas played by actress JoAnna Cameron. The show aired from 1975 to 1977 on CBS. Erica Durance, Lois Lane on Smallville, will play Isis on the show — whether we're talking possession or a body double remains to be seen. The name Isis isn't a new one to Smallville — it is also the name of the Foundation set up by Lana Lang and later run by Chloe Sullivan devoted to helping meteor freaks of the non-homicidal variety."
