Default METROPOLIS (2012/2013; New Superman TV Series)

For those who have been waiting for news and I found this totally by accident, I discovered that IMDB (International Movie Database) has a listing for a new television series for the 2012/2013 television season.

Tom Welling, Erica Durance, Aaron Ashmore and Michael Mckean are returning to network television in ... METROPOLIS.

Reprising their roles as Clark Kent/Superman, Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen and Daily Planet Editor Perry White, the series is being produced by Tom Welling Productions.

I haven't been able to find out any further information about this but I'm waiting for confirmation back from Michael Ausiello from I found this information on the following websites:

IMDB is like wikipedia anyone who registers on their site can add content. It's a fan pipe dream just as it's stated in the link.

None of that is official and with a new Superman movie, WB more than likely will not push for a new Superman show.

Also it's Internet Movie Database, not International.
....and so says the Meeklo

As far as I'm concerned, after that pitiful series finale, a live action Superman television series featuring the Smallvile crew is dead. Give me something more faithful. Hell, after Nolan bows out from the franchise, give me a Batman series. It was rumored well over a year ago and if they can do it right and seriously, it could be a hell of a show.

I remember when the Dick Grayson series was rumored, I rolled my eyes. I wish I was older and had a way to march into the offices with an appointment and pitch a Dick Grayson-Nightwing series instead.

Wasn't this already debunked in the Smallville thread?

I think that if it were in "post-production" that we would be hearing something official about it by now maybe. I don't think it will end up happening.
