Since the late 1980’s, Superman and characters related to him have not stayed off the small screen for very long. The Adventures of Superboy was swiftly followed by Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, which eventually had its red boots filled by Smallville, a show that many say paved the way for Supergirl, among other superhero shows.
Smallville’s influence on the current renaissance of superhero shows is not lost on Tom Welling, who played Clark Kent on that very series for ten mighty seasons. He’s also aware that many of the same crew members from his series carried over to some shows viewers currently can’t get enough of, including directorial powerhouse Glen Winter.
Here’s what Welling had to say regarding those subjects in a recent interview with BirthMoviesDeath:

Isn't that the same Fortress set they used in Smallville? Regardless, here's the official description: Kara travels to Superman’s Fortress of Solitude in hopes of learning how to defeat Indigo (Laura Vandervoort), a dangerous being who can transport via the Internet and who has a connection to Kara’s past. Also, James’s relationship with Lucy reaches a crossroads, on Supergirl, Monday, Feb. 29 (8:00-9:00 Pm, Et/Pt) on the CBS Television Network. Seeing Vandervoort return to this world should be a lot of fun, though visiting such an iconic Superman location without the Man of Steel having any sort of physical role in the series seems daft. Why not set Supergirl in a post "Death of Superman" world if him showing up is such an impossibility? It's beginning to get silly at this stage. Regardless, the show is definitely improving as time goes on, and this does »
Supergirl just made her first appearance in the Arrowverse! As Barry Allen, Cisco, and Dr. Harrison Wells travelled to Earth-2 in tonight's episode of The Flash, we caught a glimpse of Green Arrow and The Flash, and finally the Girl of Steel herself. There's been some speculation that that's Justin Hartley's Green Arrow from Smallville, but I'm not convinced that's the case. If anything, it looked more like future versions of the two heroes in slightly different costumes, but we'll all need to rewatch the episode over and over to be sure! For now, we at least have the gif below. Supergirl showing up here (even if it is just footage taken from the pilot episode of her CBS series) is awesome, and a precursor for next month's crossover. It looks like there are still plenty of alternate Earths for The Fastest Man Alive to explore anyway... Did you catch all of that? »
RelatedSupergirl/Flash Crossover Is Happening: Find Out How and When
Gustin, Zod bless him, added a bit more fuel to the fire by revealing via Instagram the internetwork crossover event’s title: “Worlds Finest,” its conspicuous use of odd punctuation perhaps offering the meet-up’s biggest clue. »
Ever since Supergirl debuted in October, Kara Zor-El's famous cousin Kal-El, a.k.a. Superman, has been either hinted at or seen from a distance. Back in November, we reported that the show was finally casting for the Superman role, but there's a twist: it will be a 13-year-old Man of Steel. Today, we have new photos from next week's episode, For the Girl Who Has Everything, which gives us our first look at the young Kal-El, played by Daniel Dimaggio.
Our report from November, before Daniel Dimaggio was cast, revealed that this could be a recurring role on the series, although the young Superboy won't be wearing his iconic blue and red tights just yet. Our earlier report revealed these flashback scenes will take place while young Clark is living on Mom and Pop Kent's farm, and these scenes were said to establish a strong family bond between Kal-El and Kara Zor-El, »

Tom Welling has been fielding a lot of questions about Supergirl lately, and while it would make absoluetly no sense for him to reprise the role of Superman there, he certainly sounds open to the idea. "I’ve gotten a lot of questions about that, and the funny thing is, I’ve never been asked. They’ve never asked me. So, we’ll see. It’s a great show; I’ve seen it. I might need a little notice!" As CBS may be developing his new show Section 13, it's certainly possible that he could show up in some sort of role there, so we'll have to wait and see! Be sure to keep watching the video above as the Smallville alum also weighs in on who he's rooting for in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (the answer probably won't shock you), man buns vs braids and Clinton vs Trump. »

Look! Up in the sky! It's a bird. It's a plane: It's Reluctant Man! Whether Smallville was cancelled or just ended is a matter of semantics. The series was certainly a success with its ten season run, but when asked about reprising his Smallville role on CBS's Supergirl TV series, Tom Welling told Buzzfeed's Jarett Wieselman, "It would be odd."
Welling's Smallville co-star -- Laura Vandervoot, who played Supergirl in Smallville's latter years -- has been cast on Supergirl, which stars Melissa Benoist in the title role. Vandervoot is reportedly playing Indigo, a living computer on the CBS freshman superhero show.

Tom Welling, who famously played Clark Kent on Smallville, hasn’t completely ruled out making an appearance on Supergirl. Tom Welling On Supergirl? Earlier this week, when asked about the possibility of reprising the part of Clark Kent, Welling wasn’t sure if it would work. “It would be kind of odd,” Welling told BuzzFeed. What did […]

It’s official: Stitchers fans only have to wait two more months to find out whether or not Cameron survived his season-ending flatline.
Freeform on Friday announced that the sci-fi drama’s second season will premiere Tuesday, March 22 at 10/9c. (That’s right, I said 10/9c.)
For those of you who don’t speak fluent Stitchers, the hourlong drama follows Kirsten Clark (played by Emma Ishta), a young woman with the unique ability to “stitch” herself into the memories of the deceased, allowing her to help re-open (and officially close) cold cases. »
57 years ago today, Disney’s Sleeping Beauty premiered at the Fox Wilshire Theater in Los Angeles. It was the last film based on a fairy tale that the House of Mouse made for over 30 years, until 1989’s The Little Mermaid, since Sleeping Beauty underperformed at the box office, leading to massive layoffs at Disney. The successful release of 101 Dalmatians in 1961 ended up saving Disney Animation. Though Sleeping Beauty wasn’t a hit at its debut, the film’s become a beloved Disney classic, with Aurora in her pink dress (you win, Flora) prominent among the lineup of Disney princesses, and with Maleficent now an iconic animated villain. Maleficent got her own movie starring Angelina Jolie in 2014. Other notable January 29 happenings in pop culture history: • 1845: Edgar Allen Poe’s The Raven was first published in the New York Evening Mirror. • 1942: BBC Radio first aired “Desert Island Discs.” Still on the air today, »

Fans of the hit new series Supergirl have likely been delighted that veterans of past Superman movies and TV series have appeared or will appear at some point during the first season. Dean Cain, Helen Slater, and Laura Vandervoort are among the most recognizable, but many a fan have wondered if Tom Welling could ever appear on the show. After all, many of us spent ten years with him when he inhabited the role of Clark Kent on Smallville, which chronicled the character’s journey from teenage farmboy to Superman.
Welling recently sat down for an interview with Buzzfeed to reflect on his Smallville days, among other things, but what was perhaps the most interesting thing he had to say was left out of the interview. Here’s what he said when asked if he would reprise his role of Superman/Clark Kent on Smallville, which was later tweeted by »

Right now is a great time to be a DC fan (or a superhero fan of any kind). Sure, the DC Extended Universe hasn't quite kicked off yet, but while Marvel is owning it on the feature film front, DC is no slouch when it comes to their TV series. What started off in the grounded world of Arrow quickly spiraled out of control, and now shows like The Flash, Supergirl and DC's Legends Of Tomorrow are showing what it means to be a live-action superhero TV show. They're fun, their poignant, and they're proving that a shared universe can work on television (though Supergirl is still kind of its own thing...for now).
Though while those series are absolutely killing it, we can't forget one of the older shows that originally paved the way for caped heroes on TV. I'm talking about Smallville, a series that not only did »

“Smallville” star Tom Welling thinks it would be “kind of odd” to reprise the role of Clark Kent on CBS’ “Supergirl.” “There’s people who would like it… there’s people who don’t like it but I will tell you that no one has ever actually asked me to do it,” he told Buzzfeed’s Jarett Wieselman, who shared the quote on Twitter. “So, I don’t know. It would be kind of odd. I don’t know who he is at that point. He would obviously be Superman.” CBS has already tapped a former “Smallville” actress to star in “Supergirl. »

Thus far in Supergirl's first season run, Superman has only been seen in the shadows, with producers teasing that the Man of Steel may appear at some point to help out his less famous cousin. We know that the show has been casting a much younger Kal-El for flashback scenes in this first run of episodes. Now, we have word from Smallville's very own Clark Kent about the possibility of Tom Welling returning to reprise the role of Superman. But it only sounds like wishful thinking at the moment.
Tom Welling played the high school aged Clark Kent on The CW's Smallville for ten seasons, holding the longest tenure of any Man of Steel thus far. BuzzFeed has a new interview where Tom Welling looks back at his long run as Kal-El, the last son of Krypton, and discussed the possibility of returning to play the role. Here's what he had to say. »
It’s been almost five years since Smallville concluded its ten-season run, but aside from two roles in smaller films, the show’s main star Tom Welling has mainly been unseen on the big or small screen. However, that could soon be changing. As revealed in an exclusive interview with Buzzfeed, Welling may be returning to television in a new CBS pilot that he created, developed, and executive produced. The potential series is titled Section 13, and it’s an hour-long drama about “a CIA black ops officer-turned-private contractor who, after a personal tragedy, joins a covert organization devoted to carrying out the most difficult

During an interview with Buzzfeed, former Smallville star Tom Welling has offered a few words on the current crop of DC superhero TV shows, as well as revealing whether he’d have any interest in reprising the role of Kal-El on CBS’ Supergirl.
“I’m very proud of shows like Arrow and The Flash,” said Welling. “They’re able to ground these characters so that the viewer can relate on a human level to people who used to be only in two dimensions.”
Asked about a potential return as Clark Kent for Supergirl, Welling responded that: “There’s people who would like it. There’s people who don’t like it, but I will tell you that no one has ever asked me to do it. So, I don’t know. It would be kind of odd. I don’t know who he is at that point. He would obviously be Superman… »

For over ten years, Tom Welling captivated the minds of fans worldwide as he brought DC's most iconic son - Superman - to life in the hit superhero drama Smallville. However, ever since the show ended its record-breaking 218-episode run back in May of 2011, Welling took a much-needed break and stepped away from the limelight, only resurfacing to make the occassional appearance in smaller films such as Draft Day, Parkland, and the upcoming Nicholas Sparks adaptation The Choice. The relatively reserved actor recently sat down with Buzzfeed to reflect about his time on Smallville. Welling, who landed the coveted role at the age of 24, goes into length about getting the part and how Clark's journey on the show helped shape his own journey in life: "There was a lot of growing up I needed to do on that show. Fortunately, Clark had no idea what the hell he was doing »
