ETA: Tweets from the Caprica panel at SDCC today:
And this is old news by now, but in case you missed it, Ask Ausiello spilled a couple of Smallville spoilers the other day.
Question: I’m about to go Mel Gibson on your butt if I don’t get some Smallville spoilers regarding Lois and Clark. So how ’bout it, bud? —Christine
Ausiello: You wouldn’t dare hit a man while he’s holding a mint-condition Vanity Smurf plush circa 1982, would you? [Beat] Don’t answer that. Okay, here’s your scoop: There’s a development in the premiere that is so ginormous you’d think Smallville was heading into its final season or something.
Question: Any intel on Smallville‘s big bad this year? —Mitch
Ausiello: No, but I think I have something better: Clark’s getting a new partner at the Daily Planet this season, and she’s got some major DC Comics cred. The character’s name is Cat Grant, and my good buddy Walter Wikipedia has all the deets on the currently-being-cast character. (And no worries, Clois fans; Cat will serve solely as a comedic foil to Clark. I think.)
