While Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and Legends Of Tomorrow have proven to be massively popular shows, they wouldn’t exist without Tom Welling and his long-running portrayal of Clark Kent aka. Superman, in the hit series, Smallville. For a total of ten seasons, Welling portrayed a younger version of the man of steel, and it seems like the actor is interested in returning to superhero television.
Welling is already set to appear in the upcoming third season of Lucifer, but while talking to Nuke The Fridge, the actor revealed that he is interested in returning as Clark Kent in The CW’s The Flash. This comes as a massive surprise since Welling has previously shown zero interest in reprising his Smallville role, but it would be more than amazing to see him return.
See what Welling said below:
“I am willing to go on The Flash and I have a few ideas on how it can happen if the network asks me. In fact, I think I can make it happen.”
While we can hope that Welling does “make it happen” and Clark, in fact, appears on The Flash, it would be dangerous to get too excited. For now, we should be excited to see the actor back on television in Lucifer and hope that he moves forward with his willingness to appear in the CW superhero universe.
