It wasn’t a critique that came faster than a speeding bullet, but it was more powerful than locomotion. smallville showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar he embodied the devil “Clana” (the fictional relationship between Clark Kent and Lana Lang in the 21 year old tv show smallville) in a recent interview with the hollywood reporter about his hit Netflix show, Wednesday. And by “incarnated as the devil,” we mean silently accept one of her daughter’s criticisms that the romance it lasted a little longer than it should.

When the Reporterby Christy Pina order Gough and Miller if they did have done something differently with smallville today, Gough took the opportunity to talk about Clana. “Clark-Lana went on too long,” he said. “Something else had to happen there. I think that was one that got a bit repetitive. My youngest daughter is now finally after Wednesdayshe will look again smallville, and she is in the second season. She says, ‘What’s wrong with these two?’ I’m like, ‘It was a different time.’ So, I think there are things there, if we were to go back, we’d probably be a little more adventurous with some of those relationships and take them to certain extremes and let them play out.”

He is not wrong. In 2001, people were still clamoring for the will:, it won’t be them from Sam and Diane and they still had four years to wait for Jim and Pam to charm viewers with their incessant smiles and flirtations. It was a different time.

Time they’re on it, says Millar he would write all the female characters differently than our modern perspective. “We were definitely cautious and very cognizant of the fact that we wanted to go to five seasons, and we ended up at 10 seasons, but we thought, ‘OK, if we split them up, what are we going to do? ‘” Millar said. “Again, as a parent as kids, I think female characters would do it differently today. I think Lana, her agency wasn’t there. She could have been a much stronger character, and she always felt put in positions of weakness. It’s a different era, a different time. So, that’s something I think we could have done and would definitely consider doing better.”

How is it It’s often the case, they admit they could never make the show today because nobody wants shows about superheroes on the CW anymore. When asked if they would visit Superman again, Gough said:

I think we tell that story, and they’re always refreshing Superman. I just read last night that James Gunn is writing a new younger Superman movie, and I’m like, ‘OK. I feel like we were very, very lucky to make the show when we did it because we were able to make the show that we wanted to make and, frankly, there was no committee sitting on us telling us what we could or couldn’t do. I mean, we had the features from Warner, which wouldn’t give us certain characters that we wanted, but we were able to do the show that we wanted to do, that we wouldn’t be allowed to do that show today. There were so many deviations from the canon. The heresy of one generation is the gospel of the next generation.

What do Gough and Millar want to do next? Wednesday? Why, restart Miss Marple, of course.

“WFor a long time we tried to get a young Miss Marple, and maybe that influenced us with the mystery element here, but it’s certainly kind of intriguing as a character you always see,” said Millar. “There is something about detective novels and mysteries that is a great puzzle for a writer to solve. So, I think that was something, seeing how she became kind of a nosy old lady in Agatha Christie was something we talked about for a while.”
