    Tom Welling Talks Scrapped Arrowverse Plans; Open to Playing Superman Again

    I think he may be saying this because he knows he has nothing to worry about lol! I would love to see it happen, I just doubt it at this point in time.

    Bit of a U-turn from Tom who has famously avoided verbalising any kind of intent to play Superman (as opposed to Clark Kent) before. But hey, he's older now, remarried, one kid and another on the way, maybe he's mellowed out a bit and thought why the hell not.

    Hm, not much to go with there.
    Part of me would like to find out if he would really be down to wearing a Superman suit.
    And of course the curiousity in seeing if Tom Welling in a Superman suit would have worked.

    You could do some fun stuff with Reeves Earth 2 and Superman, so i think spitballing this idea isnt the worst.
    Its something we could talk about.
    But i think this is Welling just seeing if a Dialogue could happen.

    Some people have said he would be willing to don the costume on a big budget film, rather than a TV budget. Which might be true? Idk. I thought he was offered the Superman role in that "Flyby" movie, but did he turn that down?

    But like elgaz said, maybe over time he's just mellowed out and thought why not?

    If he was in Battinson's universe, I could see him playing a disgruntled Superman who maybe just gave up on being Superman. On the flip side, he has a sort of Kingdom Come Superman look to him, which would be cool to see in Flashpoint.

    Today marks the 10th Anniversary of the finale of SMALLVILLE. While we didn't see Welling in the suit. We did get Superman all the same.

    One can only hope this will become a reality in a future project.

    I was also hoping Tom would reprise Ultraman for the Crisis so we can see an opening shot of him making a final stand against the Antimatter wave like in the comics.

    I have long accepted that Tom was never going to be Superman because he has no interest in playing Superman.

    Cool to hear Welling say he would play Superman in a film if they asked him. I guess we are probably at a point where they might not ever ask him to, and he feels comfortable saying he would haha! But who knows. After the success of a certain rival to DC... Maybe they should consider pulling out all the fireworks. It was also interesting to hear they tried to put him in a Superman suit in the beginning or Season 2. Of course he said he wasn't going to, and asked who are they replacing him with lol!

    I can 100% believe Tom Welling rubbed Brandon Routh the wrong way during 2006. I think Tom was running on fumes by that point. It sounded like stressful for him. I think he's even admitted himself he would be short with people and didn't appreciate his time on Smallville as much while filming as he does now that it's over lol.

    Would be interesting what the reaction would have been for sure lol.
