The big question that has never been answered is did/does Tom even want to wear a costume?

I still believe the answer was and still is no, which is why, sadly, we'll never see him as Superman. A shame though, because he played one hell of a Clark Kent.

I think that ship sailed a long time ago to be honest. Tom was reluctant to even wear the suit in the Smallville finale, and he's done 10 years of Clark Kent. I'm a fan and I'd like to see it happen, but I think there's no hope at this point, realistically.

According to his unofficial facebook page, this is a recent photo of Tom. I don't know legit it is considering its a fan page, or where it's from, but he doesn't really look the same to me here. He almost looks more generic.



EDIT: Here's another. Apparently this was earlier in the month.

Tom's had his hair longer for as long as I can remember, I always wondered what he'd look like with it cut short or shaved but knew they would never do it whilst he was playing a young Clark on Smallville. He looks about 25 in that top pic, not 35.

He looks sad.

I wonder where his career headed ?

He was given a desk in the WB lot not long before Smallville ended, so after his role as an exec producer on Smallville (and also directing a couple of episodes), and his work on Hellcats, he's probably doing more stuff behind the scenes.

I don't think his career has went anywhere as such, the guy did crazy long days working on Smallville for 10 years so is probably taking a well deserved year out.

Default Re: Tom Welling - Clark Kent/Superman : The Man Behind The Cape

Here's a question: as the show was closing, the suit was seen, it was the SR suit/prop. The reason why it was chosen was because the producers felt that the SR suit, or the Routh suit, fit more with their universe than the Reeve suit, which was another choice and one fans brought up as well because the SR suit was for Brandon Routh, and was felt that Routh's suit wouldn't fit Welling.

My question is: the Reeve suit would fit Welling, but not fit the universe; the Routh suit did fit the universe, but not Welling; what about the Dean Cain suit from Lois & Clark?

Yeah, the suit is divided between fans in terms of quality, but unlike the Routh suit, the Cain suit did look like it was homeamde as the origin of the suit itself from the show. Plus, unlike the Routh suit, did sport a yellow "S". Other fixes would've been easy I think, because I think they would just change the belt to something "normal" like a black one with a gold buckle (giving it a Golden Age feel).

So, what of it? Could that have worked better or not, and yes this is a Welling thread, so would he have been able to wear that suit, or willing to do so?

Smallville series was loosely inspied by Donner's take, so the Suit was of alien origin given to Clark in Fortress, it was not home made like Lois and Clark series suit.

So they has two options either use Reeve suit or SR suit. Dean Cain's suit (Lois and Clark) was out of question.

Creative team decided to use SR suit as Welling was going to be shown in CGI- Superman in the finale. (IMO.)

Actually kind of this. Smallville has a lot of Donner/Singer inspiration(Superman returns S is official House of El symbol, etc) and even though Martha made the costume(out of homemade materials or kryptonian blankets) it would make more sense to use a Superman Returns like costume instead of the Dean Cain or Christopher Reeve costume.

He looks like CHris Evans up there.
And regarding the suit, the one that Jonathan holds in his arms in the finale looks a lot different, and better, then the SR suit shown in the ice.

The Superman suits Smallville actually made looked really bad I thought. The unworn prop looked like masses of cheap rubber, and the shirt they made was much superior, but still very underwhelming, given the TV budget.

Default Re: Tom Welling - Clark Kent/Superman : The Man Behind The Cape

it is rather surprising that he hasn't done anything since smallville ended...

I would imaged that during the making of the show his availability was rather limited in-between his shooting schedule of the show (plus not being able to change his looks drastically for other roles...)

but once his schedule freed up, you'd think he'd get more offers, or gone to some auditions...

I get the impression that he's purposely taking a break

Based upon what I've read over the years during Smallville, I get the impression that Tom Welling liked the production side of things more than the actual in front of the camera side of things so it wouldn't surprise me to see him involved more with the production of other TV shows in the future as opposed to him going on to do other acting roles.

The last time I read something regarding what was next for Tom Welling post-Smallville & what he wanted to do next he was planning on taking time off to be with his wife & wanted to start a family.

Unsurprising really given that he supposedly worked 12+ hours a day, 7 days a week, virtually all year round for the best part of 10/11 years. It would be no real shock to me if I didn't hear a thing about Tom Welling again for another 3 or 4 years if he is planning on starting a family with his wife.

I'd like to see him in a cameo role on Arrow. Not necessarily has Clark, just a role.

I'd rather Arrow avoid any ties to Smallville. It's doing fine as its own thing.

I know that this is a fan-made account, but I saw this on Facebook and thought it was just ironic.

Thanks. I don't think I posted the full thing on this board yet. So here it is. It's also in the style of Gary Frank's cover for the Secret Origin hardcover.

It appears the photo above of Tom Welling with his head shaved isn't real, it's a chop of a Rick Malambri pic - here's the original
