smallville-tv-06.jpgThe new showrunners for Smallville have strongly hinted that Clark will finally fly in the next season, confirming that the infamous ‘no flight, no tights’ implemented by former heads Gough and Millar will be revoked.“Saving people in Smallville was one thing – when he had to run to the factory to save Chloe the roads weren’t very crowded, the streets weren’t very crowded. Being alive in Metropolis as Superman is a very different experience and you will find very quickly in this season he discovers it’s not so easy when you’re running through crowded streets or you’re having to run into a crowded crisis situation,” said the showrunners in an interview with Comic Book Resources recently, suggesting that the Man Of Steel will discover his wings sooner than we’d suspect. However, he won’t be donning his bright red speedos and cape any time soon. “We have a lot of conversations [about flying and the costume]; the only thing that we are saying is that we can absolutely confirm that there is no tights, so that’s pretty much all we can say on that.”Smallville returns for its eighth season later this year.
