I'm not caught up with Smallville yet, this is why I haven't posted a review in quite some time. Plus I'm watching it irrationally because I keep waiting for Bruce to show up. Which, yeah, never going to happen. But wouldn't that be something? *sigh* Can you imagine the ratings if CW promo'd it correctly (ha! *snicker*)? The reinvigoration of fandom? The flurry of meta? The ship wars? Ship wars, you say? Oh yeah. For someone who's *never* been on the show, this guy shows up in a lot of fic regardless. There are already Bruce/Clark people, Bruce/Lois people, Bruce/Lex people, Bruce/Chloe people. Even if we just see his trouser cuff disappearing into a limo and a shot of *Alfred* saying, "Master Bruce," the flailiness of fandom. The flailiness! *nods*
But the downside - who could they possibly cast as a young Bruce Wayne? It would *have* to be an unknown with the necessary charisma and gravitas. And yeah, good luck with that.
I just want a glimpse, a foreshadowing, of the *other* friendship of legend. Is that so wrong? *sigh*
Ow! My head. *curls into tiny ball*
