The success of “Smallville” may have paved the way for a spin-off featuring fellow DC Comics mainstays “Justice League”.

It was announced a while back that several guest star heroes (the Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg, the Green Arrow) will all be appearing in an upcoming episode of “Smallville” this season.

Now, Comics Continuum reports that the group will also be appearing in a second episode later in the season and insists that episode will “act as a launching pad for a possible series”.

Smallville producer Al Gough has denied that any League spin-off is in the works though, who can blame him after the disastrous “Aquaman” pilot got shelved even before airing.
