Hawkman's Smallville Epsiodes Now a Telefilm?

According to the crew over at Blog@Newsarama, the upcoming Geoff Johns-penned Smallville episodes featuring Hawkman -- entitled "Society" and "Legends," respectively -- are now going to air as one two hour telefilm.

This comes on the heels of the previous announcement that Pam Grier (yes Coffy herself) will be playing the role of Amanda Waller in these episodes.  While I was a huge fan of CCH Pounder as "The Wall" on Justice League, this casting seems like a shoo-in as well.

This reall is great news!  I can't think of another time when characters as deserving as Hawkman, Dr. Fate, and Stargirl will get so much exposure.  I am very pleased to see the extra attention given to what is shaping up to be a very promising pair of episodes.  Hopefully CW (and maybe DC) will hype this as an "event," which, given the presence of the Winged Wonder, it most certainly is!
