Well some said it wouldn't happen but from the looks of it Tom will wear the suit, and might not just be a final shot! But maybe even for a good part of the season coming up.
As you all know Smallville will be closing shop after this upcoming season, and with this comes the final evolution of Clark Kent into "The Man of Steel" or "Superman" to the un-geeks reading this.
Never had an actor played the role as long as Tom Welling so this being the final season really is a sad thing even if it's a show that ran for 10 years. Just think everything we have seen this decade we had Smallville on tv waiting for us every Thursday night, and then Friday night the last two seasons. I'm sure that Tom wants to play other roles, and from what I hear wants to direct also but he is this Generations face to this role, and that's an amazing honor he should be very proud off, and should fully embrace. I mean who wouldn't want to have people look at him, and say "hey that's Superman."
See to Superman fans he will always be known as this generations "SUPERMAN" just like Chris Reeve was to my generation as a kid, and millions of kids have grown up the last decade, and have seen Tom Welling as their face to the role of Superman.
This is such the case that the last movie flopped, and I personally think it was because it was a movie that featured another face, and well we got a "Superman" movie without this generations "Superman" which I think upset the fanbase to the point that nobody cared after the first week of that movie.... The fact that it was terrible didn't help it's cause, and so since Tom is this generations face to the role it would have been a total shame if he didn't get the chance to suit up for the series at least once!!! Heck he didn't get the role in the last movie, and things don't look great for the Nolan produced movie even tho he, and Chris Nolan as Producer... Well it's like a match made in fanboy heaven.
But if this is all we get then thank you Tom for proving them all wrong, and wearing the suit after all the people who said you would never wear it now can eat crow, and as a fan of the show there is nothing I wanted more then to see the suit on this show, and see you flying.
So this past Sunday Comic book author, and president of Blue Water Productions Darren G. Davis did a radio show interview with talk show "Tha Jackals Head" which is hosted by "Tha JackaL" can be heard on The Paranormal Soup Network & Tenacity Radio, Let it slip that this final season Tom Welling WILL INDEED wear the suit, and get this! It's mostly his doing.
When asked about Tom Welling, and Smallville being in it's 10th season Darren G. Davis wasted no time, and said "he will be wearing the Red & Blue this season, and if that wasn't enough to make one happy get this! He said that it was mostly his (Tom) doing because Tom wanted to do it because he wanted to put an end to what some people were saying about him being scared to wear it due to the so called "Superman Curse."
Looks like Tom doesn't believe in the curse, and will make millions of fans happy, and he will wear the "REAL SUIT" afterall.
When asked if it would look like the RED & BLUE or another "Black suit" he wears Darren said flat out that "No it will be the traditional RED & BLUE."
There you have it folks...
