Superman vs. Doomsday?

Forgive us, as this isn't technically movie news, but it's sort of relevant - if Doomsday turns up in Smallville, it could impact the chances of him being the big bad of Man Of Steel, right?

Also, we're probably going to mark today as the slowest news day in Total Film history. Seriously, what's going on? This is worse than the writers' strike! Is everyone in the industry sitting in a cinema waiting for the end credits to roll on Iron Man or something?

Anyway, back to the point. Doomsday is going to be appearing in the blue and red boy scout's TV spin-off, Smallville, replacing the leaving Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum to his buddies) as the resident regular villain.

We're not entirely sure how this is going to work - as we remember him, Doomsday isn't quite as charismatic as Lex - but, hey, go to SciFi Wire for more, then go Swede the Wall-E trailer, to give us something else to write about.
