Thanks Brady! I'm glad you're liking my idea so far! I am considering expanding it and making it better. This was just an draft of an idea i came up with but i am feeling more confident now and am gonna do my best at making this an awesome series hopefully hah. Yeah i know 22 is a lot of work and can be a lot but hmm i'm unsure. i will prob keep it being at least 13 to be smart. can always lengthen the second season if it makes it that far ha.

omfg that looks so much better and professional. yeah I Def have to check that out as it will prob be easier. thanks a lot for the help. I am considering making it a 22 episode series instead of 12. I feel like I could tell and bring out the characters if I had more episodes in the season to deal with? what do u think?

thankies! i may push it all back a little. i don't want it to be too live action and suck the drama out of it ahha. there is a lot to get into and that is just the characters and their history together. Clark, Lana and PEte mainly as i so want to get into their history in smallville and whole event which change their lives and then there is lex and he is just epic to get into and so much more. would u like to be on my team?! aaand you dont have to write if you don't want too and itll be nice to have someone experienced!

Yeah i want it to have that kinda flash pace which Flash have yet i don't want to jump the gun too quickly. I wasn't planning for that to be the mid season finale or for Lex to kinda grow into that villian we know he could become so quickly. Haha it does feel awefully fast but hmm i think by the opener of the second half of the season it could fit and by episode 12 everything will have it's come to completion. the finale will set things in motion and the second half of the season will deal with the aftermath and lead more into the villain then actually introducing the villian in that half of the season. Your feed back is really helpful and as your work with Trinity so have the upmost respect for you. And hmm i just may rewrite the first half. i don't want write myself into a hole ha. moving the Justice episode to the season finale could work just as well and lead more to a build up.
Loove julian mcmahon and him as a villian yet kinda not the villain is fitting i am thinking hehe.

Hey there Michael do you have much experience with writing and virtual series? You can message my account and we can see from there. i never really worked with anyone with writing before so i'm new to it *nervous laugh* ha.

Thanks so much for the feedback Chris! I'm working on the episode summaries and trying to get it all together now as we speak haha. I was thinking the same thing about Jamie Dornan for Thomas well. I am thinking of casting Julian McMahon instead possibly. Yeah the Superman story been told so many times and i was unsure of approaching it again as well but i plan to make this not just an Superman story but a more adult hero drama and bringing a more fresh and new look and feel to the series as Lois most likely won't be with the Daily Planet yet and Clark is far from that bumbling glasses wearing reporter and i won't even get started on Lana and Lex. Nathan is my baby and i have high hopes for him and his success as well as leading up to an Justice League episode eventually...as for when no idea don't wanna rush it ha.
