batmanbegins.jpgThis one's via our bestest friends at TV Squad: Warner Brothers is tacking eight minutes of Batman Begins footage onto the season finale of Smallville. Warners insists that this is not a trailer or a single excerpted scene, but a "compilation of scenes" prepared specifically to air alongside Smallville. It all happens on May 18 - that's still almost a month away, but it should tide rabid fans over until the June 17 premiere of the film. Of course, the synergy isn't exactly random: Smallville is basically the Batman Begins of the Superman story.
