In a move that is not exactly a surprise, MTV's Splash Page has pretty much confirmed that Hawkman is coming back this season on Smallville. The Winged Wonder, played by Michael Shanks, will be back, along with Stargirl and Cyborg in the season finale.
Geoff Johns pretty much already said as much, but it's good to know we can expect to see more of Carter Hall on the small screen. Maybe we can get Shiera in there as well? This season of Smallville has been tremendous, and with the developments currently brewing (including the Kandorians, Zod, Checkmate, and whoever it is that Detective John Jones seems to be working for), this should be a finale worth watching.
