Somebody SAAAAAAVVVVVEEEEE MEEEEEE! Members of the cast of SMALLVILLE are reuniting for a magnificent weekend in Madtown October 25th - 27th.
Faces from CW18's legacy and current primetime series are headlining Wizard World Madison this weekend at the Alliant Energy Center in our State Capital. Reuniting at the event and on stage are some of the talented stars that paved the way for the current CW Arrowverse. SMALLVILLE's Clark Kent and Lex Luthor, Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum, will be joined by the beloved series' Lois Lane and Kara Zor-El, Erica Durance and Laura Vandervoort. They will join the rest of the weekend's special guests at the event and will be available to pose for pictures and sign autographs (for a nominal fee), and will partake in a SMALLVILLE themed group session Saturday at 1:30pm. Welling and Durance are slated to reprise their roles and appear in this winter's Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover event. Durance and Vandervoort have also made appearances as other characters on SUPERGIRL.
New to Wizard World's offerings, SMALLVILLE super fans can also opt in to two special events featuring the dynamic duo of Welling and Rosenbaum. Friday features a SMALLVILLE Cocktail Party where guests can mix and mingle with fellow fans and the pair at a private party event at Pooley's Sports Bar and Event Center from 8:30-9:30pm. Saturday night, the Alliant Energy Center's Room MENDOTA 5-6 will be rocking thanks to SMALLVILLE Nights -- an intimate evening with Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum where fans will not only enjoy talking, hearing stories and asking questions from the two actors, but they will also have the rare opportunity to watch and potentially participate with the two as they play out scenes from old Smallville scripts. Each fan will also leave with a unique gift from Michael and Tom. Doors open at 7:00pm.
Among the celebrities and special guests this weekend are faces sure to be familiar to fans of CW18. Arrowverse villains extraordinaire will show their true, softer sides as they mingle with fans.
