Re: So did Clark put on the suit and fly? (Smallville SPOILERS)

we get cgi superman and really close up shots of welling, plus the iconic open shirt shot, but no true shot of welling in the costume.

Lame. Talk about a tease. A CGI of Superman in costume and then fading into the comic book cover before we get too close to seeing Welling in the suit. Apokolips was a waste. the build-up to Darkseid ending up being possession of Alternate Lionel--stupid. Anti climatic not even seeing any of the battle on Apokolips. Green Arrow takes on Granny Goodness and her thugs and kills them with arrows--talk about easy. Where was Desaad, Kalibak, the troops of Parademons--you know something worthy of being called epic and fitting for the debut of Superman. Scatter shot, aimless and underwhelming best describes this.

Glad I bailed back when I did otherwise I would have sat through years of mediocre seasons to end up with abysmal finale.

Below average.

Same here. Though 90% of the finale was kinda lame, we at least got a pay-off of sorts.

I would've PREFERRED that Welling actually put on the suit and stood in it for a few seconds, instead of getting CGI Supes floating in space, but as the Stones once said, "You can't always get what you want."

No, Welling just didn't want to put it on cause he didn't want to be typecast

He should have just embraced it all IMO, its a great thing to play Superman and have people like you and your character

I gave it a Below Average as well. And Welling gets an F for being such a prima donna and not putting on the costume.

I gave it an "average". Not a stellar two hours, but a decent enough ending.

At least it was fun participating in the final commentary thread.

Why must they use the CGI stuff? While it was cool to see Welling as the Man of Steel finally, but I still say the two Superman films (Chris Reeve ones) have the best flying sequences ever. And no CGI or computers... it looks "fake" to me sometimes.

Wait...can someone explain the comic book? I mean it would make sense if it were called Superman...but it was called Smallville. Plus...why didn't Oliver get to be in that final scene with Chloe?

I also don't get the point of mind wiping Lex. Seriously, is no one going to tell him about his time in Smallville? Does he NEVER have any future interaction with Lois, Clark, Oliver or anyone else that knew him there? Lex would not let this suspicious bit of amnesia simply slide by.
