Smallville – First proper look at Hawkman, Dr Fate and Stargirl…I’m just not sure

Posted by LiveFor on November 28, 2009

I know they are being incredibly faithful with the costume designs for the Justice Society in the upcoming episode of Smallville, but I just don’t think it works.

Every other comic book character that has appeared in the show has been stylised to fit into it.

I’m not sure what it is but it all looks a little ridiculous. Hawkman’s costume was always a bit silly and I think his wings need to be bigger (there was another photo of him in flight). Doctor Fate’s glowing eyes look cheap as does the rest of his comic. It should be a real metal helm and a big flowing cloak with lots of shadows all around. Stargirl’s costume looks like she hired it from a fancy dress shop.

The shot below shows Justin Hartley’s Green Arrow and Michael Shanks’ Hawkman getting it on, while the photo above offers a first look at Doctor Fate (Brent Stait) and Stargirl (Britt Irvin).

I’m a big fan of the JSA, but I just can’t get enthusiastic about their appearance which is a great big shame.

What do you think of the costumes?

    Big fan of Smallville and i’m not too worried about these costumes – previous characters have looked ‘off’ on pre-released screen shots but have been perfectly acceptable when seen in action. Time will tell…

[…] Posted by liveforfilms on January 14, 2010 Smallville – while many feel it has gone on for much too long (myself included) it is still digging through the wonderous catalogue of characters from DC Comics. Versions of Green Arrow, Cyborg, Aquaman, The Flash, Martian Manhunter and more have already appeared and Dr Fate, Stargirl and Hawkman are due an appearance (check out those photos). […]
