James Marsters Returns To SMALLVILLE As Brainiac 5 | MTV

James Marsters
Earlier this summer, the CW Network hinted that a number of former "Smallville" cast members will return for the tenth and final season. And now it appears that one of the actors may be coming in a slightly different role.

According to TV Guide, James Marsters will appear in the 200th episode of "Smallville" as Brianiac 5, a member of the Legion of Super-Heroes, whom executive producer Kelly Souders describes as "a slippery fish with a questionable moral compass."

Over on Fancast, "Smallville" executive producer Brian Peterson added that the 200th episode will be “one big event — and you have to wait for the last few minutes for it." He also stated that the episode will “explore a little bit of the past, the present and the future. We kind of do a little look back to where we’ve been, and we also take a look at where Clark is going.”

During his recent appearance at the San Diego Comic-Con International, Marsters indicated that he hadn't seen a script for the episode yet.

"I have no idea what they're going to do with me," Marsters told Movieweb. "I have no idea. I just get to go hang out with Tom [Welling] and company. They're a great group of people and they've got great special effects. They make me look bomb strong and everything, so I'm looking forward to it."

"As long as they don't take off my clothes or anything, I'll be fine." added Marsters.

Marsters first appeared as Brainiac during the fifth season of "Smallville" before returning in the seventh season. Brainiac was also a villain during the eighth season while in possession of Chloe Sullivan (Allison Mack). Following his defeat, Brainiac was taken into the future by the Legion of Super-Heroes, which may explain his reappearance as Brainiac 5 in the series.

The new season of "Smallville" will premiere on Friday, September 24.
