The series that redefines the origins of the world's greatest hero reaches its powerful conclusion with more revelations, more fascinating characters from DC Comics lore, and a mind-blowing, spirit-lifting finale that is everything fans could want. In this 22-Episode Season 10, super heroes emerge from the shadows, only to be driven underground by a public that labels them vigilantes.
At the same time, otherworld forces of darkness gather, presenting Clark Kent with the greatest challenge of his young life. The world he calls home and the people he loves - including Lois Lane, who now shares his secret and his life - need a champion. They shall have one. Don't miss all the hopes, heartaches and heroics of a final season to remember. They will lift you up, up and away!
We've previously reported
(in a not-so-mild-mannered way!) that Warner Home Video was working on a DVD-only release of Smallville - The Complete Series
(62 discs, exclusive bonus items, $339.88 SRP) as well as a separate release of Smallville - The Complete 10th and Final Season
on both DVD (6 discs, anamorphic widescreen, English 5.1 Dolby Surround, closed captions, various subtitles, $59.98 SRP) and high-def Blu-ray Disc (4 discs, 1080p widescreen, English 5.1 DTS HD-Master Audio, English and other subtitles, $69.97 SRP). Last spring we passed along info
from VideoETA that spoke of an 11/8/2011 release date, but now Warner has finalized these three items for later in that month.
, the Tuesday following the American Thanksgiving holiday (which kicks off the holiday gift-shopping season) is the correct street date for all three of these. The 10th and Final Season
set, in both DVD and Blu-ray Disc format, will come with extras in the form of Commentaries on 2 Key Episodes; Unaired Scenes; "Smallville
: Coming Home" (Cast and Creators Reflect on the Landmark 200th Episode "Homecoming," in Which Clark Kent Experiences Transformative Events on the Way to His Final Destiny); "My Fathers, My Son" (How Clark Kent's Fathers/Son Relationships Evolved over the Series' 10 Years); and a "How Do We Do" Music Video.
Smallville - The Complete Series
(billed as "the ultimate collector set for the ultimate fan
") features over 192 hours of content that includes over 5 hours of newly-added special features including a never-before seen Superboy
pilot from 1961, a 90 minute series retrospective with all new interviews, the 2010 final Comic Con panel, the Aquaman
(a.k.a. "Mercy Reef
") Pilot, and a Paley Festival featurette. Plus off-disc bonus items that includes an Exclusive Daily Planet
newspaper written by DC Comics (highlighting the important storylines developed during the 10-year run of the show), 2 lay-flat picture books which hold the 62 DVDs, and an Episode Guide with never-before-seen production art (storyboards/sketches) and behind-the-scenes photos.
Any one of these three items can be pre-ordered using the button link just below. Underneath that is finalized 3D package art for The Complete Series
on DVD, The Complete 10th and Final Season
on Blu-ray Disc, and then The Complete 10th and Final Season
on DVD. Check 'em out!
