Dean Cain was to play Vandal Savage in 'Smallville'

By
Dean Cain was intended to play Vandal Savage in Smallville.

The former Superman's role was changed last minute when the immortal villain was earmarked as a potential movie foe.

Teri Hatcher starred with Dean Cain in the '90s TV show 'Lois & Clark: The New Adventures Of Superman'.

"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'," writer Bryan Q Miller told 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 writing the Smallville Season 11 comic series for DC Comics, also hinted that Intergang would have a role 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.

Smallville Season 11 will feature the debut of that continuity's Batman, with former Robin and Batgirl Stephanie Brown appearing as Nightwing.

Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman star Cain featured in the seventh season Smallville episode 'Cure'.
