Smallville - Aquaman Promises 'Dark' Final Season

Remember Smallville's "bubble-gummy" Justice Leaguer Aquaman?

Well, sorry to break it to you, Kryptonites, but Alan Ritchson (aka Arthur "AC" Curry) just got word that his superhero alter ego will be, um, diving back into the CW hit's 10th and final season—and that the, um, bubbly character we once knew is no more...

"It's supposed to be a lot darker this year," Alan told us at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards, "which I'm so excited about."

Which means Smallville fans should get excited, too!

Explains Alan: "Aquaman is such a bubble-gummy type of character [who] doesn't get a lot of respect as a superhero, so to be able to come and play a darker side is going to be a lot of fun. He's a limited character—as far as needing a lot of water around—but there are ways to justify it. Plus, I like to think of him as quite a cool superhero, and having the chance to go back for the final season [of Smallville] is huge." Agreed!

Are you excited about the return of Alan...and Aquaman?! Are there any other old Smallville faves you're still crossing your fingers will return—besides Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum), which, it goes without saying, is a must!

Smallville's 10th and final season premieres Friday, Sept. 24, at 8 p.m. on the CW.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
