Question: On a scale from 1 to 10, how crazy will the final scene in Smallville‘s 200th episode drive Clois fans? Any chance you can give us a little more on it? — Geff C.
Ausiello: Nine. Can’t say more except that it’ll take your breath away.
Question: Do you have any updates on the possibility of Michael Rosenbaum returning to Smallville? — Denny
Ausiello: I hear episode 10 may be titled “Luthor,” so draw your own conclusions. Actually, let me help you: I’m guessing that ties in with his pa Lionel’s return. But I could be wrong!
When Erica Durance first joined Smallville as Lois Lane, Clark Kent still only had eyes for Lana Lang. But a few years later, things have changed in a big way. Not only have Lois and Clark become a couple, but Lois is now aware of Clark's abilities and his role as The Blur – even though she's keeping that to herself for the time being.
At last weekend's party celebrating Smallville reaching its milestone 200th episode (airing next month), I spoke to Durance about Lois' role in the final season of the series, along with what to expect in this week's episode, in the wake of Lois having left for an assignment in Africa.
IGN TV: After years of Clark keeping a big secret from Lois, is it interesting to be able to play out a scenario where she now has this knowledge, but is keeping it a secret herself?
Erica Durance: Yes. It's a power shift and it gives me the chance to show the kind of love she has for Clark, which is, "I accept you where you're at. I accept you, even though you are keeping a secret from me, because I know that you have a reason and it's difficult for you." And that's pretty huge.
And she has some fun with it too! She gets to jab him a little bit and there's some great situations the writers have created.
IGN: Right. Like the bit with the pen in the premiere.
Durance: She was having some fun! Yeah, that was a really great scene.

IGN: Last we saw though, she was off in Africa. Can you talk about this coming week's episode, "Shield", and where we pick up?
Durance: She goes off to Africa, because she's not quite sure where she fits in with Clark and whether she'll be a hindrance or a help to him. And we have a guest star, Michael Shanks [as Hawkman], that was on last year who's coming back and has a huge fan base. He gives her some very helpful advice. She gets into a little bit of trouble.
IGN: Lois and Carter seems like a fun pairing. I don't recall you guys sharing much, if any, screen time last season.
Durance: That's who I have all my scenes with in this episode, so I had a great, great time.
IGN: Once Lois gets back, what's the dynamic like between Lois and Clark?
Durance: They've done a great job this year of finding a happy medium between the seriousness of where they're going in their relationship and then also branching off – going undercover and being a journalist and him getting tips for his side of things and having fun still. I really believe the writers have done a good job of just keeping it still moving, so it doesn't get stagnant.
IGN: I know I'm curious as to whether they'll be some sort of mind wipe or other curve ball, or whether the series will indeed end with Lois still knowing Clark's identity, as he takes on the Superman identity. Would you like to see her fully in the know at the end?
Durance: Absolutely. I've worked hard for that moment! [Laughs] It's been seven years!

Durance and Tom Welling at the Smallville 200th episode party
IGN: As Clark heads towards his destiny, even while she hasn't told Clark she knows his secret, do you think Lois might be able to help him along his path?
Durance: I think it would be really great for her to be able to have that. I think that is what the writers are trying to create, is their partnership. He has all these great abilities and those kind of things, but she's kind of the human version of him. She would do anything for truth, justice and the American way. She just has her human limitations. I think that you'll see this really wonderful partnership.
IGN: I loved seeing Lois and Perry White work together last season. Have you heard anything about Michael McKean coming back again before the series ends?
Durance: I've talked to Perry on the phone! That's as close as I've come to Michael. But if he comes back, I would love that.

According to wikipedia, ‘Smallville’ is still on the air, and in fact began it’s 10th season earlier this week. That seems hard to believe, but either way, the CW sent out some new pictures of Laura Vandervoort looking fantastic as Supergirl. She looks so good I wanna watch the real show now. Is there a real show? Is this thing seriously still on the air? What the hell is the CW anyway? She looks like Charlize Theron, is she related to Charlize Theron? Why do dogs have wet noses? 20 dollars!? Do you think that girl over there likes me? So many questions. Life is full of mysteries, my friend.

WB and Legendary pictures have to get their Superman movie made by 2012, because in 2013, some of their rights revert back to the heirs of creator Jerry Siegel (and god forbid those worthless catamites get nickel of this). Back in February, WB hired Chris Nolan to “mentor” the process. A few weeks after that, we heard David S. Goyer (co-wrote Batman Begins, story credit on Dark Knight) was writing the script. Now, according to Deadline, Chris Nolan and producer Emma Thomas have a shortlist of possible directors. BOOM! HERE THE F*CK THEY ARE! (That’s just how I roll, homey).
* Tony Scott (recently of Unstoppable — it’s like a missile the size of the Chrysler building!)
* Matt Reeves (Cloverfield, Let Me In)
* Jonathan Liebesman (Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, Clash of the Titans 2)
* Duncan Jones (Moon, Source Code)
* Zack Snyder (Watchmen, 300, Sucker Punch)
Nolan is reportedly meeting with candidates and will submit his choice to the studio in a few weeks. Tony Scott is out of the question, because nowadays he only does movies about trains (though Superman is faster than a speeding train — discuss). Matt Reeves… haven’t seen Let Me In yet, but… meh. Jonathan Liebesman… double meh. I still haven’t seen Duncan Jones’ Moon (no homo), but everyone says it’s amazing. I believe them, but it’s always hard to predict what’ll happen when a director goes from smaller projects to blockbusters, and whether he’ll let the studio walk all over him or not. I’m all for Zack Snyder. He made the supposedly un-adaptable Watchmen and almost pulled it off. Imagine the fun he could have with Superman. But something tells me Superman doesn’t have enough zombies or owls or swordfights or hot chicks in spandex for Zack Snyder’s tastes. Come to think of it, Superman is a little boring. He’s like Steve Young with superpowers.
EXCLUSIVE: Warner Brothers film execs are telling Deadline there will be major announcements involving DC characters coming in 4 weeks. But I can tell you now that Superman producers Chris Nolan and Emma Thomas are getting closer to resuscitating the Man of Steel. I'm told they have begun meeting with a short list of directors for the job of directing Superman, the picture which will be financed by Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures. On the list: Unstoppable's Tony Scott, Let Me In director Matt Reeves, Battle: Los Angeles helmer Jonathan Liebesman (who just got the Warner Bros/Legendary job of directing Clash of the Titans 2), Duncan Jones, who just directed Source Code, and Sucker Punch helmer Zack Snyder. As Deadline first revealed back in February (Chris Nolan Will Mentor Superman 3.0), Nolan came up with an idea that put the Batman director in a godfather position on Superman, which besides from the Batfranchise is the linchpin of DC Comics franchise characters. David Goyer wrote a script. Several of these directors have movie commitments like Liebesman, which make then unlikely. Nolan has already started meeting with candidates and will submit his choice to the studio within the next few weeks. Warner Bros and Legendary have to get the picture made by 2012, because the studio stands to lose certain rights to the iconic character in 2013 after a judge ruled favorably on behalf of the heirs of Superman creator Jerry Siegel. As I've reported previously, the studio at one point wanted Guillermo del Toro to resurrect Superman… Will tell you more when I hear it.
