Warner Home Video has added Smallville: The Complete Ninth Season to their fall line-up, releasing the TV show to DVD and Blu-Ray Disc in September.
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 has a warning for Zod 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’s Dr. Fate, Hawkman and Stargirl. May justice prevail – and Earth survive!
The release will packed with bonus features. The DVD version, for example, will contain in-depth Featurettes, such as ”Kneel Before Zod,” detailing how since the Silver age, the house of EL has been plagued by the disreputable deeds of the Kryptonian villain, Zod. Now Smallville brings this infamous foe face-to-face with earth’s greatest hero, Clark Kent. Over the course of the season, Smallville promises to show us the rise of Zod’s venomous side, key betrayals with our beloved characters, and his rising from Major to General Zod. In this docu-featurette, we’ll create an in-depth look at this dynamic criminal from Krypton, his origins in DC’s silver age, and his various appearances in more recent film, animation, and live-action television.
Another Featurette is ”Justice for All”, showing how in the early 1940s, DC Comics formed the first team of superheroes in comic book history, with the
Justice Society of America (JSA), pushing some of DC’s lesser known heroes to the forefront; Dr. Fate, Hawkman, Starman and Stargirl to name a few. Season nine of Smallville will see these characters in the “fantastical flesh” for the first time. In this
script-to-screen featurette, we’ll meet with Smallville Creatives as they bring one of comic books’ iconic team of superheroes to television for the first time.
The release also includes Cast and Creator Commentaries on the episodes Idol and Kandor.
The release is rounded out by Unaired Scenes.
The Blu-Ray version will arrive in 1080p high definition with DTS 5.1 HD audio and will also include the same bonus materials as the DVD version.
“Smallville: The Complete Ninth Season” arrives on September 7 for $59.98 on DVD and $69.97 on Blu-Ray Disc.
