Tom Welling recently joined a Smallville Panel at Dragon Con 2021 last weekend. During the panel, a fan asked the series’ star how it felt returning to his role for the CW’s Crisis Crossover. Welling shared “I’ve answered this question couple of times […] it was a great fucking idea! My manager, my team, knew that I was not trying to play that character again. In fact, I’d rather not. […] but check this out when I read that scene, I was like ‘God, that’s a good idea.’ […]”
During his reply, Tom Welling mentioned the multiverse and their movies. “[..]I think it’s fun to see Clark again in a different way and with all the different elements […] They are doing that now with the movies now, they are bringing back all these alternate universes, Michael Keaton […] I think Ben Affleck is back. […] And I was like ‘Maybe I can do one.’ but we’ll see. I don’t know.”
The audience loudly applauds after the former Superman expresses interest in being in Flashpoint or other films.
The DCEU has expressed exploring more of DC’s multiverse in future films and shows. Is Welling simply sending a signal to Warner Bros. or is he hinting at more? Either way, the fans want it, he’s down, and we think it’s a great idea.
What do you think about Tom Welling potentially returning as Superman in a future film? Sound off in the comments and online.
