Another Blow for Aquaman and More Cast Members for 'Smallville'

After the (fake) news that Jake Gyllenhal will be taking over the role of Aquaman for the Michael Bay-helmed Aquaman 2, word has it that 'Mercy Reef,' the 'Smallville' spin-off about the early days of the King of the Sea will not see the light of day at the new CW. Apparently, a hefty price tag has scrapped the show and it isn't even being considered as a mid-season replacement.

In 'Smallville' news, the Green Arrow is reportedly the latest DC hero slated to make an appearance and after a fleeting mention a couple seasons ago, Daily Planet photog Jimmy Olsen will be joining the cast as a love interest for intrepid reporter Chloe Sullivan.
