June 21, 2012: Former Superman Originally Up for Vandal Savage Role on Smallville
Prior to his being cast in the Smallville - Season 7 episode "Cure", former Superman actor Dean Cain was set to play the role of Vandal Savage on the popular tv series.
"At one point, we almost had a Vandal Savage episode - it was the one that we had with Dean Cain - and literally at the last minute, features said, 'We have a feature in development'," said writer Bryan Q. Miller in a recent interview with Comic Book Resources.
"It was years ago when I think New Line had something cooking, so we had to change it to a generic character named Curtis Knox and it was inferred that he was probably Vandal Savage."
Miller, who is currently writing the "Smallville - Season 11" comic series for DC Comics, went on to state that Intergang might show up in the continuation of the television series.
"The villains are a big reveal when we get to them because there are some tasty DC villains that do show up," he said.
It was also recently revealed that "Smallville - Season 11" will feature the debut of Batman, with former Robin and Batgirl Stephanie Brown appearing as Nightwing.
