SDCC: The Smallville Panel!

Superhero Hype! unfortunately was unable to attend the CW’s panel for “Smallville” at the San Diego Comic-Con on Sunday, but the lovely Kristen at E! Online has posted a great rundown of the footage show from Season 9, what was said during the panel and what was learned in the press room. Here’s the footage rundown:

* “The world’s greatest hero has risen” appears on screen along with the Superman logo.

* A montage of Clark on his path to becoming a hero. “And he is not alone,” says the preview. Followed by shots of each Justice League member who has fought with him: Aquaman, Black Canary, Impulse, Cyborg, Zatanna, Martian Manhunter, Supergirl, Green Arrow, the Legion and Watchtower. Studio reps confirm to us that Laura Vandervoort is not returning to the show, despite her appearance in the preview.

* The introduction of Zod, who’s brought several friends with him (more on that below). He’s seen fighting toe-to-toe with Tess.

* Lois is seen fighting in the future.

* Chloe (Allison Mack) relies on the protection of a gun this season.

* Brian Austin Green’s Metallo has a very sinister look to him. He’s seen with the Kryptonite power source on his chest, iconic for the Metallo character.

* There is a hot and steamy love scene between Lois and Clark. Heavy petting and make-out sesh included.

* For a split second it seems that Lex has appeared on screen, but it could be our imagination.

* Clark has a nifty new super suit. It’s all black, no spandex, with the silver Superman logo on the front and a long black trench coat that doubles as a cape.
