"Smallville" Season 9 Kneels Before 'Zod'

Vancouver-lensed "Smallville" Season 9 will be released on DVD/Blu-ray September 7, 2010:

"...Great planet, Earth is. So great that other survivors of 'Planet Krypton' wouldn’t mind making it home and taking control. But fellow Kryptonian 'Clark Kent' (Tom Welling) has a warning for 'Zod' (Callum Blue) and his followers who cross the line, especially if they seek to enlist 'Lois Lane' in their schemes: I will destroy you all!

"Hearts grow fonder (Clark & Lois) and dangers grow stronger (Clark vs. warriors of Zod) in this 21-Episode Season 9 Collection. Plus, unexpected characters from DC Comics lore add exciting new layers to the adventures of the man who will become 'Superman'.

"Among them: the shape-shifting 'Wonder Twins', magical 'Zantanna' and 'Justice Society of America’ members 'Dr. Fate', 'Hawkman' and 'Stargirl'. May justice prevail – and Earth survive..."
