Diane Sherry Case who is best known by us as teen Lana Lang in 1978s "Superman: The Movie", was interviewed by blogger Barbara "Babs" regarding the recent release of her new book "Elephant Milk". In the interview she is asked about her portrayal of the young Lana in the film...

Babs: I am sure you have been asked a million times, but what was it like to play Lana Lang in Superman?

Diane: Lana Lang is an icon and it was a privilege to play her in the first big Superman film. I was also excited to be in a film with the legendary Marlon Brando, who I didn't actually meet until years later at a friends wedding. As for Lana, I felt right at home in her shoes. I loved the old car we were driving, the cheerleader's outfit, and it was especially fun to be filming in Calgary, Canada. All of our drivers were rodeo men, cowboys. It was beautiful there, like the Midwestern United States it was portraying.

In an exclusive interview by website assignmentx.com, Smallville producers Peterson and Souders were asked about Lana Lang's status on the show...

AX: Is Lana Lang's story done? Would you or could you bring her back?

SOUDERS:This season is a lot about Clark confronting the ghosts of his past, and I think he has something to learn from everybody. We've never had any problem, when we looked back at these nine seasons, and tried to bring something out of it we've seen before, but figured out a new twist. And what part of that impact on Clark's life hasn't been resolved yet. I can't think of anybody who has been on the show where we wouldn't have a clear idea of what their story is.

Lana Lang of 'Smallville' is on UGO's list as one of TV's 30 Worst-Treated Women:

#15-Lana Lang Gets Kidnapped...Again

Guilty Parties: Smallville, supervillains

Cause of Death: Oh God, which one?

Superman's gotta have a damsel in distress to rescue, right? The young lass as portrayed by Kristin Kreuk has long played an integral role in Superman's early life, but somehow we imagine even the comics spared the young girl being kidnapped on a weekly basis and knocked out cold every time Clark used his powers. Plus, there's no exucse for subjecting her to that horrible "Countess Thoreaux" storyline.

A fan's camera angle analysis of Clark and Lana's scene from "Smallville's" sixth season episode "Nemesis...By Ke'ara's RTF 305 Blog: "Smallville: A Close Up of the Man of Steel -Focusing on the scene from episode "Nemesis" of the sixth season of Smallville where leading character, Clark Kent is saved from a caving underground piping system loaded with kryptonite by the love of his life (then) Lana Lang. Oh, must I not forget, he was trapped with his arch-nemesis, Lex Luthor, Lana Lang's then husband. The first shot is a LONG SHOT / orientation shot where the camera is placed far away to give a view of where the character is and the situation. This shot introduces the beginning of the scene, which is Clark Kent seeing Lana Lang after escaping from the piping system with Lex Luthor. The audience sees the location and is aware of the situation behind the characters, because of the long shot. The shot also makes the character appear lonely due to the amount of space surrounding the character. Clark Kent is placed in the middle of the scene and is standing still, while the characters behind him are in motion.

The next shot is the MEDIUM SHOT / information shot. This shot confirms that it was a specific character in the long shot. This shot is a continuation or further development of the actions that were in the long shot and are in the scene. Here, the shot confirms that this is indeed Clark Kent in the scene and the audience gets to see the reaction on his face as he sees Lana Lang.

The last shot is the CLOSE UP shot / important detail shot and it zooms in on the character's facial expression where the audience can see the emotions and feelings the character is expressing. The shot should naturally flow after a medium shot, but is emotionally revealing. Here, the audience sees how emotional Clark Kent is as he sees Lana Lang, noting that this expression is love..."

eclipsemagazine.com highlights 'Smallville's' 200th episode titled 'Homecoming' and mentions Lana Lang's appearance..."'Homecoming' is definitely a must-see and will bring back many memories from the early days of the series. Viewers will be able to recognize several callbacks and shoutouts. Those who have watched since day one will remember how awkward Clark Kent felt in high school – and yes, it is high school and we all felt awkward, but at least we didn't have unknown superpowers to deal with! We will remember what first love was like, as Clark pined for Lana Lang (Kristen Kreuk)..."

Smallville's 'pilot' director, David Nutter talks about the show's origins and mentions Lana to fancast.com..."Tasked with bringing the Young Man of Steel to small-screen life was director David Nutter, whose resume at the time included the pilots for 'Dark Angel' and 'Roswell,' many episodes of 'The X Files' and, yes, the syndicated 'Adventures Of Superboy' series from the late 1980s.

"We walked blindly into the fire and we had a firm step," Nutter says of 'Smallville's maiden flight. "We had a great script and some great talent, and I felt really confident in the story we were telling. This was a time to make Clark Kent a real person, a teenager that other teenagers could actually relate to."

Giving the saga of a teen coming to terms with his extraterrestrial origins and abilities "a sense of reality" was of utmost importance to Nutter. "Too many times shows are so fantastic there's no bedrock of believability," he notes. "I started with 'X Files,' which was always based in reality and fact, and then I worked with James Cameron on 'Dark Angel,' which was all about science fact and making it as realistic as possible. So I brought all of that to 'Smallville.'"

Of course, Clark Kent might not have ever gotten off the ground (so to speak) had 'Smallville' not found the right actor for the lead role. "I knew Tom Welling was the perfect guy when Clark runs into Lana Lang (played by Kristin Kreuk) for the first time," says Nutter. "Lana of course had a kryptonite necklace on her neck, so Clark tumbled onto the ground, dropped his books.... That's when I said, 'That's him.'"

WBTV's Roth remembers watching the 'Smallville' pilot for the first time and "almost weeping, I was so excited. That pilot was magic for us."

comicbookresources.com interviewed Smallville's producers regarding its 200th milestone episode and mention Lana..."For Souder, Clark's first meeting with Lana Lang was an important moment to echo. "I really wanted to revisit it and [see] how far he's come from that moment," the producer explained. "Clark seeing Lana for the first time and fumbling through that."

"The Lana meet is probably the moment we all fell in love with Clark Kent, because we saw his struggle that would launch the whole series," added Petersen. "Because it's the 200th, we really wanted to look back at the pilot and the 100th, because those were such big benchmarks. That's why we focused on those..."

"...While the return of Michael Rosenbaum and Kristin Kreuk to their roles is still up in the air, the producers say they have plans in place should the actors agree to return. "All of these characters sit in our heads year round. So we know we have story ideas and places that we'd like to take them," explained Souders..."

Interview by 'newsarama.com' of "Smallville's" producers Peterson and Souders talking about the 200th episode and the possibility of Kristin Kreuk's (Lana Lang) return to the show...

"Nrama: What was it like for you all, just watching the show, to revisit Smallville High. Were there certain story beats that it was very important for you to include in the episode?

Peterson: I think the first one without question was the Lana (Kristin Kreuk) meet. Because it's probably the minute that we all fell in love with Clark Kent. Because we saw his struggle that would launch the whole series... There are—we can't tell you how many things got whittled off the list, sadly. And then, because it's the two hundredth, we wanted to look back really at the pilot and the one hundredth, because those were such big benchmarks. And that's why we just focused on those and chose those...

Nrama: What about people from the original cast, like Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor) and Kristin Kreuk?

Souders: We would love for them to be back.

Peterson: We would love for them to be back. The door is wide open, so. If any of you have any pull, you let us know.

Souders: We loved writing for both of them. They were just such great characters, so we would love that chance again.

Nrama: Do you have any sort of, if the door got open enough for Michael or Kristin to walk through, do you have sort of stories in your head that you can plug them into?

Souders: Oh yeah. Probably write that script in about two days.

Peterson: Oh god.

Souders: Yes we do. We have. You know obviously all of these characters sit in our heads year round. So we know we have story ideas and places that we'd like to take them. They're always sitting right there waiting for something to happen.

Nrama: To follow up on that question, is there a contingency plan on how to end the characters if this is the final season and you can't get the actors back?

Peterson: Yes, absolutely.

Souders: Uh huh..."

In another interview, this time from examiner.com, the current producers of Smallville were once again asked about the possibility of Kristin Kreuk returning to "Smallville"...

'Smallville' turns 200 by paying respect to those who made it great..."The great question on many fans' minds is will you get to see some of the beloved past characters again, in present day, brought back for new episodes as the series comes to an end. Peterson and Souders reiterated that if all of the stars align, "the door is wide open" for many of them, especially Kristin Kreuk and Michael Rosenbaum. They joked that if any of us have any pull, now would be the time to use it. But regardless, Peterson and Souders do have plans to wrap up their story lines."

iFanboy's ranked their favorite top 5 live action Superman films and 'Superman III' quite appropriately ranked #3: 3. Superman III (1983) -"I love this one. A lot of it has to do with the fact that I was 7 years old when it came out so it's the first Superman film that I really remember seeing in theaters. This was also the only Superman film we owned on VHS and so I must have seen this over a hundred times. I love the fact that it's a bit funny and a bit science fiction-y: it's very much a Silver Age story caught on film. Even still, there is gold in them thar hills. I think that all of the sequences in Smallville are fantastic. There are some truly touching moments between Clark and Lana. And when Superman is infected by the Tar Kryptonite and turns evil? That's still frightening. Christopher Reeve's range is remarkable here." ~Conor Kilpatrick

In some ways, she is to Mary Jane as Lana Lang is to Lois Lane in the Superman mythology — not the most famous love interest but the compelling "could have been" figure in the hero's romantic life..."

'Smallville star to join Mission: Impossible 4?' -  From: punchdrunkcritics - "Just a couple of days ago we learned that Paula Patton and Lauren German would be testing for the prime female role opposite Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner in Mission:Impossible 4. Now Deadline has learned that Kristin Kreuk, who everyone will know as Lana Lang on Smallville will also be competing for the role. Lang arguably has more action flick experience than the other two, having most recently starred in Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. Yeah, I know that movie stunk to high heaven but she wasn't the reason why. Consider Kreuk to be the top contender now, in my opinion."

io9.com is asking "How can Marvel and DC create the next Smallville?" and offer some suggestions based on their thoughts on what made Smallville so successful..."Why did Smallville work so well?...

It's the characters. Back when Smallville launched, people used to call it "Krypton's Creek," for its endless love triangles and melodrama and teen angst. But you know what? Superhero stories have always had a huge element of the soap opera to them. And Stan Lee's genius, back in the 1960s, was making us care as much about the complicated personal lives of Marvel's characters as we did about their battles with supervillains. Any successful superhero TV show will probably have to work as a soap opera and make us care about the characters' personal struggles, especially in this day and age. And having a strong family element, like the early seasons gave us with Jonathan and Martha Kent, will be a huge plus too.

There was a slow burn on introducing the comic book elements. It's easy to forget, now that Smallville is full of random DC Comics elements like Amanda Waller and Checkmate, how simple the setup was for Smallville's first few seasons. It was just a single alien kid stuck on Earth, dealing with normal high-school stuff and keeping his superpowers a secret. The backstory was really simple, too — contrast that with Birds of Prey, which had the daughter of Batman and the daughter of Commissioner Gordon teaming up to fight crime, with the help of Batman's manservant..."

Peterson adds that he would love to have Kristin Kreuk back anytime. "We'd love to have Kristin back, but like a lot of actors [Rosenbaum] she's very busy."

Talks of Kristin Kreuk’s possible return to Smallville from Zap2it.com. "One ghost from Clark's past seemed to keep popping up in our conversations with the producers and the stars.

"And, so we have some thoughts. We have the door open. Right now, that hasn't happened to work out. We want her back. We love her." Kreuk left the show in 2008 as her character's tumultuous relationship with Clark ended with her being, well, walking kryptonite. Since then, she has appeared on "Chuck." Her agent has denied recent rumors that she'll return, though. When we spoke to "Smallville's" star, Tom Welling, he tells us he had a scene in mind in case Kreuk does sign on. "A great scene, I think, would be to get Clark, Lois and Lana together. And then like, 'Um, sooooo?'" As he looks around and laughs."

Kristin Kreuk appears in a Hill Zaini music video alongside Academy Award winner Faye Dunaway. A neat bit of trivia, besides the fact that Kristin Kreuk played Lana Lang on Smallville, is that Faye Dunaway was in the 1984 film "Supergirl". She played the evil villain 'Selena'.Lana Lang and Supergirl have had a unique history together in the comics. Currently, Lana is wonderfully written as Supergirl's confidant and mentor. Supergirl has also adopted Lana's last name and is passing herself as her niece Linda Lang.

Who will return to 'Smallville' [Lana Lang Mention] from smallvillepodcast.com: "With the final season of the series looming, it's natural to want to revisit people and places of the past....

Kristin Kreuk – Lana Lang – Last appearnce: 8×14 – 'Requiem'

Lana has departed from the show more times than any other character on Smallville, yet always ends back up right where she started on the show. When last seen, Lana and Clark had rekindled their relationship in season eight, but the return of 'Lex' thrwarted the couple, when Lana used the promethius suit Lex designed on herself, which essentially became a Kryptonite weapon used against Clark. It was a bittersweet goodbye for the high school sweethearts, but one that most knew was coming due to the fast growing connection between Clark and Lois. Lana left, as the two (literally) couldn't even be in the same room together. It's been heavily speculated that Kreuk would return for the final season. Tom Welling himself has said he'd love to have all the original members back for at least one episode in it's final run. Specificially he was noted as saying how interesting it would be to see Clark, Lois, and Lana in a room together now. We'll see if Comic Con holds any truth to her return..."

mtv.com on "Superman" characters we would task out to the "Inception" cast' - Ellen Page as Lana Lang:

"Moving onto the world of "Superman," there's no question that the Man of Steel is going to spend plenty of time in Metropolis — but how about a stint in Smallville as well? If time is spent on Clark Kent's early years, Ellen Page would work wonderfully as Lana Lang, Clark's childhood sweetheart. It wouldn't be a major role for the young actress, but a nice and important cameo to help propel The Man of Tomorrow towards a greater quest during the film."

Kristin Kreuk for 'Smallville' return? from digitalspy.com - "Former Smallville star Kristin Kreuk is reportedly in talks to return to the show for the final season. The actress last appeared as Lana Lang in the eighth season episode 'Requiem'. According to Fancast, the character will return "for sure" in at least part of the tenth season. However, a spokesperson for Kreuk apparently later denied the claims, insisting: "I don't see any Smallville in her future... I'm sure of it." Kreuk herself also questioned whether Lana should come back. "The show has changed so much it would be weird for her to come back in," she said. "She was from a different Smallville time."

In Smallville's final season who will be returning? Who will not? [Kristin Kreuk/Lana Lang mention & image used in article] From fancast.com - "...Welling in turn expressed his wish-slash-belief that familiar and iconic faces such as Jonathan Kent (played by 'Dukes of Hazzard' alum John Schneider), Lex Luthor (Michael Rosenbaum) and Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk) should make encore appearances as Clark inches closer to his super destiny...But turning to Lana/Kristin Kreuk, two wildly different messages are circulating. Though Fancast heard from one source that Lana "for sure" will be back for at least part of Season 10, a spokesperson for Kreuk tells us, "I don't see any 'Smallville' in her future.... I'm sure of it." Similarly, a setsider says there have been zero rumblings about Kreuk and/or Lana returning for the series-ending salvo of episodes. Kreuk herself proved skeptical of returning to 'Smallville' when Fancast spoke to her during her 'Chuck' run. "The show has changed so much it would be weird for her to come back in," she said. "She was from a different 'Smallville' time." Plus, the kryptonite-irradiated Lana is, like, deadly to Clark nowadays..."

It is assumed that since moving in with Lana Lang that Streaky is being cared for by Lana while Kara is out galavanting about with the super types, but even so. Talk about a character regression.

Comic book writer Sterling Gates was interviewed by ComicBookResources. “Are we still going to see Superman in the title, not in the crossover way, but how it was when the book originally started, with him as a guardian and mentor figure? "Not as much as you would think. Going forward, Kara's emotional support structure will come from her relationship with Lana Lang. That's a relationship I don't want to lose, because I think it's important for Kara to have this big sister/little sister relationship that she can rely on and lean on..." You said that Lana will be playing a bigger role, which makes sense because without her mother and best friend, Lana has to step into that role to help support Supergirl emotionally. "When I first started on this book, I described their relationship as Lorelai and Rory from "Gilmore Girls." That's still how I look at them. I think people were worried after the events of "Supergirl" #50 that Lana was going to disappear and that their relationship was over, but that's not the case. They had an argument and they had a falling out, but that's what made that scene interesting to me [and] made me wonder what happens next between those two. I love that relationship and I think it's extremely important to Kara and for the book. For all intents and purposes, Lana acts as a friend and as a non-biased sounding board for Supergirl in a different way than, say, Superman or Lois would. Lana doesn't judge Kara the way her direct family would, if that makes sense." Definitely. Friends and family can look at you very differently when it comes to certain aspects of your life. "At the same time, I think Lana needs that relationship just as much as Supergirl does. Lana has gone through a lot of bad stuff and so she draws strength from that relationship - different from the way Supergirl does. At the end of the day, it's two women - roommates and friends - helping each other learn and grow and change. That's a relationship I don't see a lot of the time in comics, so I really want to continue to foster that and build it up…”

Comic Lana Lang is listed as one of the five 'Saddest Sacks in Superhero Comics' by comicsalliance.com - "1. Lana Lang - No one in the world has it worse than Lana Lang. Anyone who doesn't know this either doesn't know about Lana Lang or lacks even the most superficial understanding of human nature...Say you split up with a boyfriend. You loved him deeply, but the timing and circumstances just weren't right. You parted amicably, and you wished him the very best. And that's exactly what he got.

He's Earth's Greatest Hero. He has loving parents, his dream job, and the admiration and gratitude of the entire world. He has an exciting life in which he does work that's truly meaningful. He has great friends, and yes, he has great love. He's happily married to a woman who is beautiful, brilliant, successful, happy, even smug. And she doesn't have to make a choice due to circumstances. Her silly, unrealistic fantasies came true. She's a fangirl who married both the object of her desire and the man she grew to love, and along the way, she? Got a Pulitzer.  

That alone would start making me want to play chicken with passing trains. But that's not enough. Fate unleashes on Lana Lang like it is a Joe Pesci character in a Scorsese film. There's one storyline in which she and Lois bicker over Clark until his mother - his mother! - steps in and informs her that she 'had her chance.'

There's a storyline in which she and Lois, as fourteen-year-old girls, come to the future. Fourteen-year-old Lana sees everything that will happen, including the fact that she will never be Clark's wife, and that he's deeply in love with someone else. All her dreams are crushed in front of her eyes. Then she is sent back to the past, her memory erased so there is no chance that she can re-prioritize and move on with her life.

There's even a storyline in which she's made the head of LexCorp. LexCorp has kryptonite, and Superman is rabidly abusing his power by stealing, sometimes violently, all the kryptonite in the world. She demands he leave. He refuses. She uses the kryptonite. Batman and Superman deal with that, after which Superman comes back, tells her that he knows that she sometimes wonders why he chose Lois instead of her. He tells her that this was why. Then he leaves. After he stays long enough to watch her cry.

That history hurt even to type. Lana Lang, without question, wins the Saddest Sack in Comics Award. I'm sure she's thrilled."

It isn't all so dire for the character. Besides, she has a whole new generation of fans that love and support her character ;)

John Schneider, who played Clark Kent's dad Jonathan Kent on "Smallville", spoke at a Comic Convention in Phoenix on May 29, 2010. During his panel discussion he was asked by a fan if there were any writings or scripts from the show that he ever disagreed with in terms of his character. John Schneider gave a funny resounding "Yes" as an answer. One of those instances was during the filming of the season 5 episode "Hidden"; the scene in which Clark and Lana are caught having spent the night together by Jonathan and Martha. Schneider disagreed with how Jonathan's reaction was written and well...take a look for yourself. It is a great 'behind-the-scenes' story of this classic Clark and Lana scene!

(Cute, but terrible fighting skills!) Trivia: Kristin as Lana Lang, played opposite Annette O'Toole (who had played Lana in Superman III) as Martha Kent in Smallville, marking one of the few times two people who played the same non-costumed character appeared together onscreen. (Yes, there have been episodes of series where, for example, Adam West or Buster Crabbe appeared opposite newer versions of Batman or Buck Rogers, but how often did actors playing the two generations of supporting characters appear together?)"

A major character will be killed-off in 'Smallville's' Season 9 finale - From ew.com: "I can confirm that one of these eight folks will be in grave danger come May 14 - Lana: Rumor has it Kristin Kreuk was spotted on the Smallville set this week. Rumor also has it I fabricated the above rumor just to make trouble. Finally, there's a rumor going around that one of the previous two rumors is 100 percent true. All joking aside, rumor has it KK is currently in Vancouver. Or is she? I've said too much!"

Kristin Kreuk on "Chuck" [Lana Mention] - From: movieline.com: "Has Chuck Stretched its 'Will They or Won't They?' Thread to the Breaking Point? - Season three began with some more convoluted attempts to keep them apart — Chuck isn't the man Sarah thought because he wants to be a spy! — and took a turn for the worse when new love interests were introduced for both characters in the form of Superman (Brandon Routh as Agent Shaw) and Lana Lang (Kristin Kreuk as Hannah). In fact, the mere possibility of new love caused such a ruckus amongst the Chuck faithful that co-creators Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak had to literally explain themselves...."

Television shows that are 'way past their sell-by date'; 'Smallville' listed from iafrica.com - "Way past their sell-by date - With the news that the ailing 'Smallville' has been renewed for a tenth season we take a look at shows that killed themselves by going on too long. Smallville: The original idea for this show was fantastic. Clark Kent growing up, coming to terms with his powers and his massive crush on Lana Lang - and saving Smallville from meteor-infected super freaks. Throw in a very, very pretty cast and you have television genius. And the show was a massive hit for a long time. And now, storylines are getting stale, two of the show's biggest stars have disappeared and it's all just got a bit much..."

From: Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation community blog: "Smallvillve Fans Celebrate Christopher Reeve - Back in mid-December we posted a note from Clana -- fans of Clark and Lana. These young fans of the TV show Smallville took the time to raise almost $1,000 for us on behalf of "Clark and Lana fans Worldwide." That post got incredible traffic. Christopher Reeve's Superman connection is a as strong as ever. Clana contact me last week and asked if they could commemorate the anniversary of Christopher's first appearance on Smallville, which happens to be today (Feb. 25). Read the recap and then go watch the scene. You'll learn a lot about Christopher and what makes our Foundation tick.

Dear Rob:

On behalf of our fandom we would like to thank the Reeve Foundation for featuring us on the main page of their website and community blog. We wanted to express our THANK YOU to the Reeve Foundation in a meaningful way by honoring Christopher Reeve's 1st appearance on Smallville.For this, we asked a well-known and gifted Fan - "Rhiannon" - to recap Christopher Reeve's Rosetta scene (pictured below) in which Christopher appears embodying a great hero. What is awesome is that many of us realized that the episode aired in the U.S. on February 25, 2003 and therefore its 7th year anniversary is coming up soon - in about a week! So, we thought that it will be WONDERFUL if you would like to post on the 25th of this month, in the community blog, Christopher Reeve's beautiful scene recapped by Rhiannon- as our Thank You gesture to the Foundation..."

Sterling Gates, the current writer of the ‘Supergirl’ books, was interviewed by newsok.com - "Supergirl 50 is a huge milestone issue, not only for the series but also for the character,” Gates said. "It really delves into a lot of different facets of Supergirl’s life, ranging from what she means to the people of the DC Universe to what her relationship with her friends is like. At its core, it’s about Supergirl’s relationship with Lana Lang and what kind of destruction a friendship between a superhero and a regular person can cause.”Lana Lang, who hails from Smallville and was among Clark Kent’s best friends in high school, has become a mentor to Supergirl in Gates’ run.”

For Valentine’s Day, splashpagemtv.com selected their five favorite comic book romances that they’d love to see adapted on the big screen; Clark and Lana was one of them! “Valentine’s Day Special: Comic Book Romances That Need a Reboot - Shakespeare wrote that "Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds." And with Valentine's Day coming up, that phrase can be adapted for the comic book world to "love is not love which alters when alter-egos are found." After all, our favorite superheroes may battle villains for a living, but sometimes it's heartbreak that proves to be the ultimate enemy. On film we've seen Peter Parker woo Mary Jane, Rachel Dawes fall for Bruce Wayne, and even the Hulk get his heart pumping for Betty Ross. But in the lexicon of comic books, there's plenty of other stories that would make us feel all warm inside. Read on for five of our favorite comic book romances that we'd love to see adapted (in some cases, a second time) on the big screen. CLARK KENT AND LANA LANG - Now that Christopher Nolan is mentoring a Superman reboot, comic book fans will be looking for distance from "Superman Returns." A change from the more traditional onscreen romance of Clark and Lois, Clark and Lana's relationship traces its origins to high school. Directors wouldn't need to look farther than "Smallville" or "Superman III" to see successful adaptations on the Man of Steel's first crush. In the "Superman: Secret Origin" comic book series, Lana finds out about Clark's powers — another possible twist for the film franchise.”

MSN TV has named Clark and Lana (Smallville) as TV's Hottest Couple, which is a great nod considering Lana's character hasn't been on Smallville since last year lol...pretty cool! This is what was said “Knowing that Lois Lane is the love of Clark Kent's life kinda curtails too much emotional investment in Smallville's Clark/Lana pairing. But that didn't stop the writers from building it up for a while because it's a touching portrayal of first love."

Ifmagazine.com created a fun TV challenge: “The Pros and Cons on Why Chuck Should Get with Hannah or Sarah” They listed several pros and cons of both characters and snuck in a cute Superman/Lana reference in the process - “7)Superman. The man in tights could always come calling. He could want his Lana Lang back and no Intersect could protect him from that. Although I’m sure he’d [Chuck] put up a fight.”

Lana Lang and Superman referenced on “Chuck”! (ign.com) “Since Shaw and Hannah have been introduced, we've all been wondering the same thing – could the pop culture loving Chuck writers resist the temptation of making a joke about the fact that Superman and Lana Lang were on the show now? The answer was no, which I am very happy about. Come on, we all wanted to see it referenced! Having Chuck say to Hannah that he supposed Shaw was good looking, "If you're into the strong, kind of Supermany kind of guy," was perfect, as the line was being said by the former Lana Lang about the former Superman. I don't think they need to make any more jokes about this, mind you, but it's good to have it out of the way, as it were.”

Kristin Kreuk is interviewed by Rick Porter (zap2it.com) and talks about her guest appearance on ‘Chuck’ and if there is a chance of her returning to ‘Smallville.’ Zap2it: It also seems like they're letting you play a little lighter than you did ...
Kristin: On "Smallville"? Yes, that's true [laughs]. The tone is a lot different. The themes are similar, oddly, but the tone is so different. ... Both [Chuck and Clark Kent] are struggling with this hero's journey, but on "Smallville" there's a very serious tone. So for me, it was really nice to play a lighter side of it. And because I'm a guest star, Hannah's not in it like Sarah's in it. I don't have to play the angst as much, which is great.
Zap2it.com: Is there a chance you could return to "Smallville" at some point?
Kristin: I don't know. I haven't talked to them about it. ... The show's very different, and Lana -- it seems like she comes from a different "Smallville" time. So if they came up with something and it made sense and it was great, then sure -- if they wanted me to come back. And if not, that makes sense to me as well, because it doesn't seem right at this point in time. I don't know if you've seen the show recently, but she doesn't quite fit in the world. It's full of superheroes, and Lois and Clark have their love story now, and it would just be weird to have Lana come in.”

Another Kristin Kreuk interview in which she talks about her guest appearance on “Chuck” and if Smallville has seen the last of Lana Lang (fancast.com). “Fancast: Is it safe to say that ‘Smallville’ has seen the last of Lana Lang?

Kristin: I think so. I mean, the show has changed so much it would be weird for her to come back in. You’re up on all of that, so you know – she was from a different ‘Smallville’ time.

Fancast: True, but I was thinking that maybe a big baddie one day kidnaps her and uses her as a weapon against Clark….

Kristin: But now she’s got superpowers.

Fancast: Right, right… She’s not easily kidnapped, I suppose.

Kristin: No, she’s not. [Laughs] I think she’s busy off somewhere else in the world.”

Kristin Kreuk ranked #55 in “FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World 2010” [U.S. Version]

“#55 Kristin Kreuk - We’re in no position to disagree with Superman. And seeing as Kristin Kreuk played Clark Kent’s childhood sweetheart Lana Lang in Smallville for eight long years, it’s only fair we worship her. Plus, the 27-year-old Canadian has a penchant for kicking ass that emerged recently in 2009’s Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. We haven’t seen it, because no one has, but Kreuk said of her training schedule: “I did karate and all that kind of stuff.” So don’t say it’s garbage, or she’ll destroy you.”

Time out here, but is Chuck trying to fill a quota with actors involved in the Superman franchise? More than likely just a coincidence, but it still warrants a chuckle.” *chuckles*

Kristin Kreuk’s “First-Class” review of her first guest appearance on “Chuck” by cliqueclack.com “Again that mistrust makes me think there’s more to Kreuk’s character than we were led to believe, but I kind of hope there isn’t. I thought she had a great rapport with Chuck, and would love for her to stick around for awhile as a genuine, non-spy-related, love interest for him…Kreuk is at least back next week, per the previews, so we’ll see how her storyline plays out…Plus, Chuck really needs to get him some. And Lana Lang ain’t a bad get for a geek.”

Superman and friends invade ‘Chuck’ - Aside from its comedy, drama, suspense and action, [“Chuck”] also has romance, especially the tension between Chuck and Sarah. But it looks like Sarah’s got some stiff competition — Lana Lang, ahem, I mean, Hannah, played by Smallville alum Kristin Kreuk… [By] the end of the episode, Hannah walked in and honestly, I haven’t seen Chuck smile like that in a long time. Even though I’m a big Chuck/Sarah fan, the look on Chuck’s face when he saw Hannah was enough to actually make me root for another girl to win Chuck’s heart, something I never thought I’d do.”

Exclusive interview with Kristin Kreuk and her guest appearance on “Chuck” and was asked if ‘Superman’ and ‘Lana’ share a scene - by Jenna Busch (tv.ign.com) “Chuck Me Out, baby! Thought casting Brandon 'Superman' Routh was cool? Well, now we have Lana Lang herself, Kristin Kreuk of Smallville fame…Smallville's Lana Lang talks about her upcoming guest appearances on Chuck.

IGN: So, last week we were introduced to Brandon Routh, the other Superman. Everyone wants to know if you guys have any scenes together and if that had anything to do with the casting.

Kreuk: I don't know if it had anything to do with the casting. I'm not sure. But we don't ever really work together. I think I said hi to Brandon once on set in passing. But there is a scene where they're interacting with each other, but she doesn't know she's interacting with him. [laughs] The story lines cross, but not directly.”

Actors Joshua Gomez who plays Morgan on “Chuck” and Sarah Lancaster who plays Ellie talk about Kristin Kreuk’s guest appearance on the show by scifiwire.com . “I have a couple really, really fun scenes with [Kristin]," Gomez said. "She was great, by the way. She is excellent, really talented actress, really adorable and beautiful and the whole thing. She was really, really cool, and to walk into our group, I think she would look at me and Zach [Levi] sometimes like, 'What the hell world am I on?' Because me and Zach just have our thing, and she's just like, 'Oh, you two are out of your minds.' But she hung with us, and she was really funny, man. She was really funny."

Ellie has already been suspicious of Chuck (Levi) and Awesome (Ryan McPartlin) as they try to cover up their spy activities. Imagine her surprise when she walks in on her brother macking on Lana Lang. "Ellie walks in on a very uncomfortable moment between her and Chuck," Lancaster said. "Because Chuck is not actively participating in Ellie's day-to-day life, she had no idea that he was dating this new girl and kind of walks in on a peculiar moment."

"I was told that was kind of just happenstance," Routh noted. Asked whether any big reference would be made to Clark Kent and Lana Lang both being on the series at the same time, Routh replied, "You don't want to do too much of that, because it can take people out of the moment. So thankfully, no." *Boooooo* [Update; There was a Superman/Lana reference made in the episode titled “Chuck vs. the Mask” yea!]

Brandon Routh, who played Superman in the latest big screen version of the franchise, joins the world of Chuck as ‘Shaw’…Another guest star familiar with the man of steel is Kristin Kreuk, who played Lana Lang on The CW’s Smallville. Kreuk plays Hannah, a beautiful woman that Chuck gets to know well at 30,000 feet in the air. But will he get to know her better on solid ground?”
