"We have had an amazing time these last couple months, working closely with the Sweet Clark and Lana forum in order to raise money for The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation...Again, THANK YOU to everyone who has so generously contributed and made this drive successful. We cannot wait to start on the drive for 2013 and to further expand it throughout the Smallville fandom and the online community overall. We will announce the total probably either next Friday, the 9th, or the following week. We are waiting for when The Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation officially receives the check and gives us clearance to post the official grand total. I will say that it exceeded what our goals were and, for this, Sweet, Legendary Women, Inc. and I am sure The Reeve Foundation are very grateful. So congratulations to all of you for your generosity and hard work and we'll keep you updated for when the grand total is announced!"
Also, legendarywomen.org has posted a wonderful fan tribute to 'Smallville's' Lana Lang!
"...While I enjoyed following the journeys of all the "Smallville" characters, Lana was always my favorite. I celebrated when she was happy and I cried with her when her heart got broken. When she dreamt of Paris, I too dreamt of running away to a place where nobody knew my name and run I did. Perhaps I can't credit Lana for the travels I've been lucky enough to experience in my life, but she did instill in me that desire to break free from what felt safe in order to grow into a stronger person who was surer of her place in the world. While Lana's generous spirit, open heart and business-savvy qualities were things I strived toward, what appealed to me most about this character were her flaws. She has often been criticized as being too perfect, but I've always believed this couldn't be further from the truth. From season one it was apparent there was more to her than the pretty, popular cheerleader persona she wore. This was a girl who had lost her parents when she was three-years-old and felt deeply alone in the world. Her propensity to rely on others to fill this void in her life has always been the root of Lana's mistakes, and it is this flaw that makes her character most fascinating to watch..." ~ A Look at Lana Lang Over the Years by Lily K.

Jadin Gould, who we recently learned is set to play Lana Lang in Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel', was interviewed by StarCam at the Movie Guide Awards Gala held a couple of weeks ago. Although, she doesn't give any story details away, I believe this might be the first time we actually hear her confirm her role as Lana Lang. [Beginning in the 30 sec mark and also in the 2:04 mark.]
Latest images added to our 'World of Lana Lang Gallery'!
A great Kristin Kreuk interview from 'Dreamwatch #5' [U.S. Edition] (March 2005) expressing her thoughts on season 4 of 'Smallville' and her character (Lana Lang). The article also features some nice Lana images:
"You've had a unique opportunity to grow from being a teenager to a young adult woman during this series, as has Lana. With everything Lana's been through, have you personally learned anything?
Lana's a very different person than me in a lot of ways. In the beginning of the show, she was very trusting of people...always choosing to see the good side in people. I suppose she continues to do that, but she's more guarded now. I don't think anybody could go through what she's gone through and not be. For myself, ever since I was younger I've always been very guarded with my relationships and with whom I choose to surround myself. I think from Lana I've definitely learned how to be a bit more open." ~ Kristin Kreuk 'Dreamwatch #5' (March 2005)

Lana Lang is featured in the comic book series "JLA: The Nail" an Elseworlds story from 1998 - A three-issue comic book mini-series by Alan Davis (story/pencils), Mark Farmer (inks), Trish Mulvihill (colors), & Pat Prentice (letters)
JLA: The Nail [Book 2of3] -Pictured
"For want of a nail the shoe was lost,
for want of a shoe the horse was lost,
for want of a horse the knight was lost,
for want of a knight the battle was lost.
So it was a kingdom was lost - all for want of a nail."
"Lana made a brief appearance in an Elseworlds mini-series entitled "The Nail." It was loosely based on a poem that started out "For want of a nail...." The gist of the poem was because of the missing nail the war was lost. In the series, a nail in the tire of the Kents' truck prevents them from leaving the farm on the day Kal-El's rocket arrives on the Earth. Because they never find the child, Superman doesn't exist. Years later, someone is trying to take out all the meta-humans including the Justice League and almost succeeds.
The book plays with the idea McCarthy era paranoia in a more contemporary setting as all the heroes are branded as aliens who need to be rounded up for our protection...*SPOILERS BELOW*
...In the story, the meta-human detention facility is in Smallville and the Kents are running an asylum for the meta-humans from their house. They are helped in their efforts by and insider at the detention facility, Dr. Lana Lang. Superman is finally discovered, having been raised in an Amish community and he saves the day. However, the final scene talks about the Kents taking the adult Kal-El in and coming to terms with all that has happened (his Amish adopted parents are killed by the villain). The Kents insist on maintaining "their anonymity so the world never discovered what it owes the Kents... though dozens of meta-humans continue to secretly honor them, and Lana Lang, as their saviors." ~ Steve
Lana Lang appears in 'JLA: The Nail #2' and is referenced in 'JLA: The Nail #3'.
