Smallville ended in May after 10 seasons, but that doesn't mean we don't think back on it. So does Tom Welling, who starred as Clark Kent, the boy who grows into a Man of Steel. Welling recently talked about the actors on set who helped him grow into his role as the lead.
For ten years now, we've been impatiently waiting to see Clark Kent become Superman on Smallville—and so has Tom Welling. It's been a long time with the "no flight, no tights" rule of the successful series, but soon it will all change. Meanwhile, the CW has decided to tease us with a new poster that shows Welling as Superman. Kind of.
For eight seasons of Smallville, Clark Kent dressed in any color he wanted ... as long as it was blue or red. Season 9 mixed it up a bit by putting actor Tom Welling in basic black. Now, in the home stretch of season 10, Clark is getting a NEW jacket.
Smallville's finale has been 10 seasons in the making—and we don't just mean the fact that the "no tights, no flights" rule we started with is finally being tossed out the window because Clark Kent will at last be putting on that famous supersuit.
Despite the CW's plans to announce that the series would have one final season beginning next fall during tomorrow's upfront presentation, star Tom Welling (aka Clark Kent aka The Blur) spilled the beans early while at a party last night.
Season 10 will be the last for Smallville, and The CW show has done a great job answering questions, closing gaps in continuity and giving us terrific guest-starring appearances. And now that Lois Lane knows Clark Kent's super-secret, their relationship has only deepened.
We all love a great cameo and some Easter Eggs sprinkled in our sci-fi movies, and the upcoming Green Lantern is bound to have its share of them. But there's one cameo you can cross off the list—for now—and that's Clark Kent. But co-writer Marc Guggenheim STILL wants him in, and the man he picked for the job is Smallville's Tom Welling.
