SMALLVILLE Star Tom Welling Talks Scrapped ARROW Appearance; Is Open To Playing Superman In THE BATMAN

Smallville star Tom Welling rarely speaks about Superman, but has now recalled talks of an appearance in Arrow and why he'd be open to returning as the Man of Steel opposite Robert Pattinson in The Batman.

We don't usually hear Tom Welling talk about his time as Superman Clark Kent in Smallville, but during a recent interview with YouTube channel El mundo geek de Ernestoneitor, the actor shared a few fun pieces of information. For starters, the Smallville alum confirmed that his friend, Stephen Amell, actually wanted him to appear in episodes of Arrow.

He was presumably supposed to play a different character (similar to Dean Cain in Supergirl), but it sounds like plans for him in Crisis on Infinite Earths ultimately derailed that. 

"Stephen is a friend of mine," Welling started. "We actually had an idea but then the Crisis thing was a bigger idea and it took it away from that, but he had an idea of me doing an arc on Arrow."

It's no secret that Welling never wanted to wear Superman's costume, and that's why the Smallville finale only depicted him in the iconic outfit either from a distance or from the chest up. However, Crisis seemingly pointed to a willingness to reprise the role, so would he be open to a cameo in The Flash

"Yeah, I think that would be cool," he admitted. "My buddy Rob Pattinson, he is going to be the new Batman. I would love...it would be fun to be the Superman that shows up in his movie, just because he is a friend of mine. Yeah, who knows."

Well, we know that won't be happening, but The Flash might not be off the table depending on how much of the DC Multiverse Warner Bros. intends to explore with that movie.
