Smallville (serie televisiva) Smallville Serie TV Smallville is an American television series set in the fictional town of Smallville, Kansas. It is produced in and around Vancouver, Canada. Created by writer/producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, the series was initially broadcast by The WB. After its fifth season, the WB and UPN merged to form The CW, which is the current broadcaster for the show in the United States. Smallville premiered on October 16, 2001, and completed its sixth season on May 17, 2007. A seventh season was officially announced by The CW on May 16, 2007.[1] The plot follows the adventures of a young Clark Kent as a teenager living in Smallville, Kansas, during the years before he becomes Superman. The first four seasons focused on Clark and his friends' high school years. Since Season 5, the show has ventured into more adult settings, with some characters attending college. Recent seasons have seen an increase in the introductions of other comic book superheroes and villains. Smallville has inspired a spin-off pilot episode, that was never aired, and promotional tie-ins with Verizon, Sprint, and Toyota. In other media, the show has spawned a series of young-adult novels, a DC Comics comic book and soundtrack releases. The show broke the record for highest rated debut for The WB, with 8.4 million viewers tuning in for its pilot episode.

The feature film division of Warner Bros. had decided to develop an origin movie for Batman, and, because they didn't want to compete with a television series, had the television series idea nixed.[2] In 2000, Tollin/Robbins approached Peter Roth, the President of Warner Bros. Television, about developing a series based on a young Superman. That same year, Alfred Gough and Miles Millar developed a pilot based on the film Eraser. After watching the pilot, Roth approached the two men about developing a second pilot, based on the young Superman concept that was brought to him.[2] After meeting with Roth, Gough and Millar decided that they didn't want to do a series where there was lots of flying, and a cape.[2] It was here that they developed a "no tights, no flights" rule, vowing Clark would not, at any point, fly or don the suit during the run of the show.[3] Gough and Millar wanted to strip Superman down to his "bare essence", and see the reasons behind why Clark became Superman.[2] Gough and Millar felt the fact that they were not comic book fans played into their favor. Not being familiar with the universe would allow them an unbiased approach to the series. This didn't keep them from learning about the characters; they both did research on the comics and picked and rearranged what they liked.[2] They returned and pitched their idea to both the WB and FOX in the same day.[4] A bidding war ensued between FOX and the WB, which the WB won with a commitment of 13 episodes to start.[4] Roth, Gough, and Millar knew the show was going to be action oriented, but they wanted to be able to reach that "middle America iconography" that 7th Heaven had reached. To help create this atmosphere, the team decided the meteor shower that brings Clark to Earth would be the foundation for the franchise of the show.[2] Not only does it act as the primary source behind the creation of the super powered beings that Clark must fight, but it acts as a sense of irony in Clark's life. The meteor shower would give him a life on Earth, but it would also take away the parents of the girl he loves, and start Lex Luthor down a dark path, thanks to the loss of his hair during the shower.[2] Roth loved the conflict that was created for Clark, in forcing him to deal with the fact that his arrival is what caused all of this pain.[2] Another problem the creators had to address was why Lex Luthor would be hanging out with a bunch of teenagers. They decided to create a sense of loneliness in the character of Lex Luthor, which they felt would require him to reach out to the teens.[2] The loneliness was echoed in Clark and Lana as well.[5] Gough and Millar wanted to provide a parallel to the Kents, so they created Lionel Luthor, Lex's father, which they saw as the "experiment in extreme parenting".[2] Gough and Millar wanted a younger Kent couple, because they felt they needed to be able to be involved in Clark's life, and help him through his journey.[5] Chloe Sullivan, another character created just for the show, was meant to be the "outsider" the show needed. Gough and Millar felt the character was necessary so someone would notice the weird happenings in Smallville.[2] She was meant to act as a "precursor to Lois Lane".[5] The concept of Smallville has been described by Warner Brothers as being a reinterpretation of the Superman mythology from its roots. Recently, since the November 2004 reacquisition of Superboy by the Siegels, there has arisen contention regarding a possible copyright infringement. The dispute is over ownership of the fictional Smallville, title setting of the show, and a claimed similarity between Superboy's title character and Smallville's Clark Kent. The heirs of Jerry Siegel claim "Smallville is part of the Superboy copyright",[6] of which the Siegels own the rights. [edit] Filming The Cloverdale welcome sign which is known in Smallville as downtown SmallvilleThe show is produced at BB Studios in Burnaby.[7] Initially, production was going to be in Australia, but Vancouver had more of a "Middle America landscape". The city provided a site for the Kent farm, as well as doubling for Metropolis. It also provided a cheaper shooting location, and was in the same time zone as Los Angeles.[2] "Main street" Smallville is at a combination of two locations. Portions were shot in the town of Merritt, and the rest was shot in Cloverdale.[5] Cloverdale is particularly proud of being a filming site for the show; at its entrance is a sign which reads "Home of Smallville".[8] Vancouver Technical School doubled as the exterior for Smallville High, as the film makers believed Van Tech had the "mid-American largess" they wanted.[5] This kept in-line with Millar's idea that Smallville should be the epitome of "Smalltown, USA".[9] The interiors of Templeton Secondary School were used for Smallville High's interior.[10] The Kent farm is a real farm located in Aldergrove.[11] Owned by The Andalinis, the production crew had to paint their home yellow for the show.[4] Exterior shots of Luthor Mansion were filmed at a castle in Victoria.[5] The interior shots were done at Shannon Mews, in Vancouver, which was also the set for the Dark Angel pilot and Along Came a Spider.[5] Movie house Clova Cinema, in Cloverdale, is used for exterior shots of The Talon,[12] the show's coffee house. For the first three seasons, the coffee house is co-owned by Lex Luthor and Lana Lang, who also manages it. [edit] Music Most episodes feature one or more songs by alternative rock acts. Two soundtrack albums were released, with the second following two years after the first. As yet, none of Mark Snow's Americana-flavored original scores (which at times incorporates John Williams' iconic themes from Richard Donner's 1978 film Superman: The Movie) has been released. On February 25, 2003, Smallville: The Talon Mix was released. The Talon Mix featured a selected group of artists that supplied music for the show.[13] Following that release, on November 8, 2005, Smallville: The Metropolis Mix was released. It followed the same format, featuring selected artists from the show's music.[14] [edit] Series overview See also: Smallville timeline Smallville promotional poster for the premiere of its pilot on October 16, 2001Season 1 saw the introduction of the cast and storylines, including the introduction of a villain (or outcast classmate) deriving a power from kryptonite exposure and appearing in only one episode, in a plot device that becomes known as the "freak of the week".[citation needed] The first season dealt with Clark trying to come to terms with his alien origins, and the revelation that his arrival on Earth was connected to the deaths of Lana's parents.[2] Season 2 has fewer "freaks of the week" episodes, focusing more on character development and relationship building.[citation needed] Several key plot points include Lex becoming more entangled in conflict with his father, Chloe digging into Clark's past while dealing with Lionel, Martha and Jonathan Kent's financial troubles, and Lana and Clark's vacillating relationship though they end the season apart. The main story arc, however, focuses on Clark's discovery of his Kryptonian origins.[15] The disembodied voice of Clark's biological father Jor-El is introduced, communicating to Clark via his space ship, setting the stage for plots involving the fulfillment of Clark's earthly destiny.[16] Christopher Reeve, who portrayed Superman in the 1970s and 1980s film series, appears as Dr. Virgil Swann to provide Welling's Clark with information regarding his heritage.[15] Season 3 focuses on further character development, loyalty, betrayal, and new revelations involving Jor-El. Early in the season, Michael McKean, Annette O'Toole's real-life husband, portrays Clark's future Daily Planet editor Perry White; from this point on, other characters present in the Superman mythos and the DC Universe are introduced to Smallville.[17] Pete Ross' inability to deal with keeping Clark's secret causes him to move to Wichita, Kansas with his mother after his parents' divorce.[18] As of the end of Season 6, Sam Jones has not made any return appearances as Pete Ross. Season 4 ventures further into the Superman mythos by creating a story arc that runs the length of the season; it involved Clark seeking out three Kryptonian stones (at the instruction of Jor-El) apparently containing the knowledge of the universe.[19] The majority of this season revolves around Lex trying to rekindle a strained friendship with Clark, Lana dating Jason Teague (Jensen Ackles), a young man she meets in France, Clark and numerous other characters vying with one another in attempts to obtain the stones, and Lionel's ambiguous transformation into a good father and person.[20] This season also introduced Lois Lane (Erica Durance) as Chloe Sullivan's (Allison Mack) cousin, as well as the Flash.[19][21] Season 5 introduces several elements of the Superman mythos, including Jonathan Kent's death,[22] the Fortress of Solitude,[23] the Phantom Zone,[23] and Zod.[24] The villain Brainiac, in the guise of Professor Milton Fine (James Marsters), becomes a recurring antagonist. The season's central plot revolves around Clark using the knowledge contained in the Fortress of Solitude to train for an impending doom that will befall Earth: the release of Zod from the Phantom Zone due to Fine's machinations.[25] Clark and Lana finally begin a relationship with one another.[26] As with Season 4, Season 5 featured a gradually unveiling storyline in conjunction with multiple minor story arcs running in parallel, mid-season and season finale cliffhangers, and cameos from two other notable DC characters, Aquaman and Cyborg.[27][28] Season 6 took Clark inside the Phantom Zone, inhabited by a society of exiled criminals from the "28 known inhabited galaxies".[29] The destinies of Lionel and Lex play out in the aftermath of Lex's possession by Zod and Lionel's adoption as the "oracle" of Jor-El. Several prisoners escape the Phantom Zone with Clark.[29] DC Comics characters Jimmy Olsen,[29] Oliver Queen (and his superhero alias Green Arrow) and Martian Manhunter are introduced this season,[30][31] and many of them unite in Smallville to fight a common threat.[32] Clark appears more prepared to accept the greater responsibility and destiny in store for him, by promising to continue his training, at the Fortress of Solitude, once all the escaped Phantom Zone criminals are either returned or destroyed.[33] Other key storylines involve Lana and Lex's marriage,[34] Lex's secret "33.1" experiments,[32] and the introduction of a Clark clone.[35] For season seven, Gough and Millar are planning to bring in Kara Zor-El, Clark's biological cousin. She will appear in approximately half of the season's episodes, beginning with the premiere. According to Gough and Millar, she was sent to look after Kal-El (Clark), but was stuck in suspended animation for sixteen years. When the dam broke in the Season 6 finale, "Phantom", she was set free. She will have all of Clark's abilities, as well as a few that he doesn't have at the moment, including the ability to fly.[36] Gough has stated that she will not wear any version of the Supergirl costume.[37] On July 6, 2007, TV Guide announced that Michael Cassidy was cast as the new editor of the Daily Planet. He will appear in at least six episodes of Season 7, and will act as a new love interest for Lois Lane.[38] On July 11, 2007, it was announced that Canadian actress Laura Vandervoort was cast as Kara.[39] [edit] Established powers of Clark Kent See also: Powers and abilities of Superman Smallville has established a number of Superman's powers throughout its history. The pilot introduced Clark as being familiar with his super strength, super speed and becoming aware of his invulnerability, after being hit by a car driven by a young Lex Luthor. Over time, Clark learns new abilities and powers that Superman will possess in the future. A new ability is generally introduced in one episode that centers around Clark discovering, learning to understand and then ultimately controlling the new found power. As the series progresses, Clark exhibits, and learns to control, super vision in the episode "X-Ray", heat vision in the episode "Heat", super hearing in "Whisper", and super breath in "Sneeze". His super hearing developed as a consequence of an injury rendering Clark temporarily blind. Clark's abilities, namely his strength, invulnerability and speed, have continually grown in intensity throughout the series. Many early episodes chronicled his body's reaction to being shot, at first becoming bruised, and later showing no marks. [edit] Kryptonite Main article: Kryptonite in Smallville The element of kryptonite is used as a recurring plot device throughout the series. Kryptonite is shown to have bizarre and lingering effects on human physiology and the young superhero often encounters mutated villains who have developed bizarre powers, such as psychic abilities, shapeshifting, and other paranormal abilities. Kryptonite has very different effects on Kryptonians like Clark. The general premise is that Clark is virtually invincible except when around it. Different colors affect Clark differently: Green kryptonite physically weakens him and could possibly kill him if he is exposed to it for too long.[40] Red kryptonite causes him to set aside moral compunctions and act out on his impulses and dark desires.[41] Black kryptonite splits Clark into (and merges him back together from) two separate beings exhibiting two personalities.[19] [edit] Cast Unlike most shows, which generally get about four weeks of casting, Gough and Millar had five months.[2] In October 2000, the two producers began their search for the three lead roles, and had casting directors in ten different cities.[4] Filming began four days after the last cast member was found for the pilot.[42] [edit] Original cast "He hasn't been able to choose whether or not he has these abilities. All this responsibility has just been thrust on him, and he has to deal with it." Tom Welling on Clark Kent[43] Tom Welling as Clark Kent: A teenager, with superhuman abilities, who tries to find his place in life after being told he is an alien. He uses his abilities to help others in danger. Clark's problem in season one is not being able to share his secret with anyone. He just wants to be normal. Clark is afraid to open up to Lana, for fear that she will not accept him if she knows the truth.[43] After months of scouting, Tom Welling was cast as Clark Kent.[43] David Nutter was looking through pictures of actors and stumbled upon Tom Welling's image. When he asked about Welling, the casting director said Welling's manager didn't want him to do the role, because it could hurt his feature film career. After a conversation with Welling's manager, Nutter got him to read the script for the pilot, which convinced him to do the part.[5] For one of his auditions, he read the graveyard scene with Kristin Kreuk; the network thought they had "great chemistry".[2] Welling believes his lack of knowledge of the Superman mythology helps his performance, because Gough and Millar have set up the series so that the previous mythology is not important.[43] The original cast: (from left) Annette O'Toole, John Schneider, Tom Welling, Kristin Kreuk, Michael Rosenbaum, Eric Johnson, Allison Mack, and Sam Jones IIIKristin Kreuk as Lana Lang: The girl next door. She was the "beautiful, popular girl who is reallly lonely."[44] She "hole in her heart", because of the loss of her parents, and feels empathy for everyone. She feels connected to Clark.[44] Gough and Millar were initially trying to find someone for the role of Clark Kent, but Kristin Kreuk was the first to be cast, as Lana Lang. Casting director Coreen Mayrs sent David Nutter, the director of the pilot episode, a tape of 69 people and the second person on the tape was Kristin Kreuk.[5] They loved her audition tape so much they immediately showed her to the network.[2] Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor: A billionaire's son, sent to Smallville to run the local fertilizer plant. After Clark saves his life, the two become quick friends.[40] Lex tries to be a hero, but his motives are usually driven by curiosity for the unexplained, like day Clark rescued him from drowning. He is searching for that unconditional love, something his mother had for him before her death.[45] Smallville's Lex Luthor was not supposed to be a precursor to the more comedic role performed by Gene Hackman; he was meant to be likeable and vulnerable.[45] The role was hard to cast, as no one could agree on who they liked for the role. Gough and Millar wanted to cast a comedian for the series, on the belief that comedians always want to "please and be loved at the same time."[2] Michael Rosenbaum auditioned for Lex Luthor twice.[45] Feeling he didn't take his first audition seriously, Rosenbaum outlined a two-and-a-half-page scene, indicating all the places to be funny, charismatic, or menacing.[45] His audition went so well that everyone agreed he was "the guy".[2] Allison Mack as Chloe Sullivan: One of Clark's best friends. She is in love with Clark, although the feeling isn't reciprocated.[46] Editor of the school newspaper, her journalistic curiosity — always wanting to "expose falsehoods" and "know the truth"[47] — causes tension with her friends, especially when she is digging in Clark's past.[48] She is intelligent, and independent, but also an outcast in the school during season one.[47] After learning about Smallville from the show's casting director, Dee Dee Bradley, Allison Mack thought about auditioning for the role of Lana Lang.[47] Mack instead auditioned twice for the role of Chloe Sullivan.[47] The character was created just for the series,[2] and was intended to have an ethnic backgroud.[47] Part of the reason she was cast was because Gough and Millar felt she had a "rare ability to deliver large chunks of expositionary dialogue conversationally." [2] Sam Jones III as Pete Ross: Another of Clark's best friends. He hates the Luthors for what he sees as their theivery of his family's creamed corn business.[49] He is the first person Clark voluntarily informs of his secret.[50] He is in love with Chloe,[51] which he keeps to himself because of the Clark-Lana-Chloe love triangle already taking place.[42] Pete Ross was written out of the series at the end of Season 3. Sam Jones III, who portrayed Pete Ross, was the last of the series regulars to be cast. Gough and Millar saw Jones III four days before they began filming for the pilot.[42] In the comics, Pete Ross is Caucasian, and the producers chose to cast Jones III, who is African-American, against the mythology.[42] "...I have the feeling that she didn't have a mother growing up — they've never introduced a mother for her. That's why being a mother is so important to her — and being the 'picture book' kind of mother at that." Annette O'Toole on Martha Kent[52] Annette O'Toole as Martha Kent: Clark's adopted mother. She, along with her husband Jonathan, give Clark sage advice about how to cope with his growing abilities. Annette O'Toole devised her own background for the character, in an effort to help her identify with the role. In her vision, Martha was originally from Metropolis, but she left because she felt it was "too phony".[52] O'Toole also believes Martha carries sympathy for Lex, because of all the loss he endured as a child (his mother and his hair). According to O'Toole, Martha will always give Lex "the benefit of the doubt," even when he reaches the point that he has crossed to the "dark side".[52] In season five, she takes a state senate seat.[53] This leads to a job in Washington, D.C. in season six, and the character's exit from the show.[54] Cynthia Ettinger was originally cast as Martha Kent, but during filming everyone realized that she was not right for the role, including Ettinger.[2] Annette O'Toole was committed to the television series The Huntress when Ettinger was filming the original pilot.[52] Around the time the creators were looking to recast the role of Martha Kent, The Huntress was canceled, which allowed O'Toole to join the cast of Smallville.[52] O'Toole had previously portrayed Lana Lang in Superman III.[55] John Schneider as Jonathan Kent: Clark's adopted father. He goes to great lengths to protect his son's secret. According to Schneider, Jonathan is "perfectly willing to go to jail, or worse, to protect his son."[56] Schneider also believes, "The least important person in Jonathan Kent's life is Jonathan Kent."[56] John Schneider was written out of the show on the series' 100th episode.[22] Millar and Gough wanted a recognizable face for Smallville. They loved the idea of casting John Schneider as Jonathan Kent, because Schneider was already known as Bo Duke from The Dukes of Hazzard,[57] which Gough saw as adding belief that he could have grown up running a farm.[2] Eric Johnson as Whitney Fordman: Lana's boyfriend. He becomes jealous of Clark and Lana's budding friendship, going so far as to haze Clark.[40] He eventually reconciles with Clark, before joining the Marines.[58] Kristin Kreuk feels audiences did not get to know the character, because he was only see through Clark's eyes.[44] The character was written out of the show at the end of the first season, but he made cameo appearances in the season two episode "Visage" and the season four episode "Façade". Eric Johnson auditioned for several male roles, including Lex and Clark, before finally being cast as Whitney Fordman.[59] When the producers called him in for one more audition, after passing on him for the major roles, Johnson informed them that if they wanted him then they would need to bring him in for a screen-test. After being brought down for a screen-test, Johnson was cast and spent only one day filming his scenes for the pilot.[59] [edit] Additional cast John Glover as Lionel Luthor: Lex's father. Glover tried to make Lionel appear as though he was trying to "toughen [Lex] up". The character is made to "go out his way, to give [Lex] tests, so [Lex] can prove himself." Glover saw the character as someone who was a rich and powerful business man, who is dissappointed in his son. Glover's goal, for season one, was to show Lionel's attempts to make Lex more tough; he interprets the character's motto, in regards to raising Lex, as "no risk, no rewards".[60] Lionel was created specifically for the show, to provide a parallel to the Kents, as an "experiment in extreme parenting".[2] In season two, John Glover, who had been a recurring guest on the show in season one, became a part of the regular cast. Erica Durance as Lois Lane: Chloe's cousin, she comes to Smallville investigating the supposed death of Chloe.[19] She stays with the Kents while in town. Durance was a recurring guest for season four, she returned as a regular cast member in season five. Jensen Ackles as Jason Teague: A love interest for Lana in season four. He follows Lana to Smallville, from Paris, France, and takes a position as the school's assistant football coach.[61] By the end of the season, it is revealed that he has been working with his mother to track to the three stones of knowledge.[62] Jensen received top billing for season four, but was written out of the show in the season's finale. [edit] Reception Smallville's first accomplishment was breaking the record for highest rated debut for The WB, with 8.4 million viewers tuning in for its pilot.[63] Since debuting in 2001, the series has been nominated and won a number of awards in a number of categories.[64] A common criticism for the first season was the use of "villain of the week" storylines. By the time the first seven episodes aired, at least one journalist had had enough of the villain-of-the-week format. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette's Rob Owen stated, "Smallville flies high with super character interaction and a nice performance by John Schneider as Pa Kent, but the series needs better plots than the "monster of the week" stories seen so far."[65] Jordan Levin, president of The WB's Entertainment division, recognized the concerns that the show had become a villain-of-the-week series. Levin announced that season 2 would see more "smaller mini-arcs over three to four episodes, to get away from some of the formulaic storytelling structure we were getting ourselves boxed into... We don't want to turn it into a serialized show."[66] On January 24, 2006, it was confirmed Smallville would be part of the new The CW's Fall 2006–2007 lineup once The WB and UPN ceased separate operations and merged as The CW in September 2006. Season 6 began on September 28, 2006.[67] Seasonal rankings (based on average total viewers per episode) of Smallville on The WB and The CW: Season Timeslot Season Premiere Season Finale TV Season Rank # Viewers (in millions) 1st Tuesday 9/8C [68] October 16, 2001 May 21, 2002 2001-2002 115 [69] 5.9 [69] 2nd Tuesday 9/8C [70] September 24, 2002 May 20, 2003 2002-2003 113 [71] 6.3 [71] 3rd Wednesday 8/7C [70] October 1, 2003 May 19, 2004 2003-2004 141 [72] 4.9 [72] 4th Wednesday 8/7C [73] September 22, 2004 May 18, 2005 2004-2005 124 [74] 4.4 [74] 5th Thursday 8/7C [75] September 29, 2005 May 11, 2006 2005-2006 117 [76] 4.7 [76] 6th Thursday 8/7C [77] September 28, 2006 May 17, 2007 2006-2007 125 [78] 4.1 [78] [edit] Awards Smallville has been nominated for the Hugo Award and numerous Saturn Awards.

Most of the cast has been nominated for one or more Teen Choice Awards; in 2002 Welling won the award for Choice Breakout Star and in 2006 Mack won Choice Sidekick.[64] Rosenbaum also won a Golden Satellite Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Series.[64] Smallville also won a Casting Society of America award for "Best Casting for TV, Dramatic Pilot" in 2002,[64] as well as award from the American Society of Cinematographers for the episode Arrow (2007).[64] The show received two nominations for American Society of Cinematographers awards for the Pilot (2002) and Sacred (2006) and a Canadian Society of Cinematographers award for Tempest (2003).[64] In addition to numerous Leo Awards nominations, the show won Best Visual Effects (2002), Best Make-Up (2005), Best Cinematography in a Dramatic Series, and Best Production Design in a Dramatic Series (2006).[64] The show has also received six Motion Picture Sound Editors nominations.[64] At the Visual Effects Society Awards, Smallville has received four nominations and two awards: Outstanding Compositing and Outstanding Matte Painting in a Televised Program, Music Video or Commercial.

Both were available online, and were included in the DVD releases of Smallville. There were two "Chloe Chronicles" editions. The first featured Chloe investigating further into the events of the first season episode "Jitters". The second edition, Chloe Chronicles, Vol II, was a continuation of the first. In total, the first two series included seven mini-episodes. The third series was a spin-off of the fifth season episode "Vengeance". Titled Vengeance Chronicles, Chloe joins forces with a costumed vigilante whom she dubs the "Angel of Vengeance." In a promotional tie-in with Sprint, Smallville Legends: The Oliver Queen Chronicles was released dictating the early life of Oliver Queen in a six-episode CGI series.[96] On April 19, 2007, a tie-in with Toyota, promoting their new Yaris, featured an online comic strip as interstitial programs, during new episodes, titled Smallville Legends: Justice & Doom. The interactive comic was based on the episode "Justice", which follows the adventures of Oliver Queen, Bart Allen, Victor Stone, and Arthur Curry as they seek to destroy all of LuthorCorp's secret experimental labs. The online series allowed viewers to investigate alongside the fictional team, in an effort to win prizes.[97] The plots of Smallville and the Smallville Legends: Justice & Doom are integral and complimentary to each other. Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar also developed an Aquaman pilot for The WB Television Network, with Justin Hartley as Arthur Curry.[98] The series was planned to follow the adventures of Arthur, in the same fashion that was being done with Clark. Following the merger of the WB and UPN, the resulting CW network opted not to produce the show. The pilot can be found through the iTunes Store, and the Xbox 360 video marketplace.
