Suggesting a Justice League-like match up later in the series does not at all imply a Smallville comparison. First of all, the show in no way is as campy and young as Smallville, which, after all, started off in high school. It is far grittier and real, and that's fine. That's WHY I thought a less "super' version of the Justice League might be fun - precisely because they would be nothing like the Smallville version, and precisely because I'd like to know what the creative version of the Flash and Superman might be, if they don't have their iconic "powers."
That's not what I meant. My point was that most TV shows and movies based on comics heroes have not done crossovers with other heroes at all
, but have instead portrayed their heroes as unique. Just because one recent series had a lot of crossovers with other heroes, that doesn't mean it should be taken for granted that another show would do the same. After all, this show is blatantly imitating Nolan's Batman, and there certainly weren't any other superheroes in Nolan's film universe.
Granted, we already know there's going to be one other DC hero character appearing pretty soon:
So there could be more. But depowered versions of Superman or the Flash? No, that's not the way they'd do it. The producers have said pretty clearly that they're only drawing on nonpowered characters. So if we did see other DC heroes, they'd most likely be characters in the martial-artist or detective or weapons-expert part of the spectrum -- folks like Bronze Tiger, Wildcat, Guardian, Katana, or the Question, say.
