SMALLVILLE

Some last minute bits from Kryptonsite before tomorrow's season premiere. First, they have scans of a TV Guide article showing "the many faces of Lois Lane," with a new Clark and Lois photo. They also note that actress Erica Durance is scheduled to be signing autographs and making a personal appearance at the Boston Super Megafest convention on November 21, 2004, and they have an excerpt from Titan Books from their upcoming official Smallville Magazine, as well as a press release about it.

FANTASTIC FOUR

USA Today has a first look at Jessica Alba in costume as Sue Storm in the upcoming Marvel adaptation, in an article that looks at the Vancouver-based production. Sadly, they say "the Thing's trademark stogie might be stubbed out, thanks to PC concerns." Thanks again to Nick Marino for emailing us about that.

Meanwhile, Superhero Hype has an insider report claiming that the seventy-pound prosthetic suit worn by Michael Chiklis insulates the actor from virtually any sensation, short of heat. The site claims, "no cooling system was added to the costume. Between takes they are having to break it open and cool him off with fans."

JUSTICE LEAGUE

According to Comics Continuum, "Morena Baccarin, who plays Inara Serra in the 'Firefly' television series and upcoming 'Serenity' movie, is providing the voice of Black Canary in Cartoon Network's 'Justice League Unlimited.'" Black Canary will be featured in the Season 4 episode, "Double Date," which is written by CBR veteran Gail Simone. The episode also features "General Hospital" veteran Kin Shriner as Green Arrow, Amy Acker as The Huntress and Jeffrey Combs as The Question, along with some other guest voices to be announced. They also note that Mindy Sterling, perhaps best known as Frau Farbissina from the "Austin Powers" movies, is providing a guest-voice in an upcoming episode.
