SMALLVILLE: Tom Welling Continues Trying To Defend Not Wearing Superman's Suit In The Finale

Tom Welling controversially chose not to wear Superman's suit in the series finale of Smallville and now the Lucifer star has once again gone on record attempting to defend that infuriating decision.

Smallville fans waited over a decade to see Tom Welling suit up as Superman but the actor chose not to and that meant we only got to see him as a tiny CGI figure from the distance or from the neck up. It was a baffling decision, especially as he had been playing Clark Kent for so long but it seemed that the actor simply didn't want to be forever remembered as just another guy playing the Man of Steel. 

Well, that's what he has been remembered as and not donning Superman's iconic costume hasn't really done much for his career. He is, however, now starring on Fox's Lucifer and recently shed some light on his decision not to wear the suit and revealed why he believes he made the right choice.

"One of 
the things when we started the show was that it was going to be about Clark in high school," Welling reiterated. "It was not going to be about Superman. So at the end of the series, it was about trying to put Clark in the position where you knew he was going to become Superman, but you couldn’t go with him. But we hope the fans felt like it was good that they knew Clark was out there being Superman" As for whether he's happy with the show's ending, he said, "very much so."
 
"I wasn’t exactly excited with the idea of getting into tights anyways, so it worked out," Welling concluded in a statement sure to infuriate some fans. What do you guys think? Sound off below.
