Re: Superman costume to appear on SMALLVILLE after all

"Dead? Been there, done that, Not impressed."

John Sheridan.

Seriously, Clark has died, or seemed to have died so often, if not in conjunction with season book ends it's not funny, that why Should anyone be so impressed right now by this one trick pony doing his one trick for the tenth time?

Now if Michael Rosenbaum showed up to a convention dressed as Superman, that would be noteworthy and funny as hell.

"Yeah, I like killed him, he cried like a little bitch, and then I stole his powers, and his clothes, y'know he actually still wore underwear under his over wear under wear, double bagging wierdo, but I'm not a show off, so um, yeah... HELLO SAN DIEGO!"

Well, I guess Welling is going to be at Comic-Con.

Could this potential rumor of the suit be real?

Tom Welling... has embraced his destiny.

... Almost.


Also the ksite report says he is now a co-producer.

And here I was hoping for a yellow leisure suit with purple polka dots.

What sort of fucked up world is it where Welling is ashamed he is Superman when Burt Ward is still opening Supermarkets in his full Robin kit while pushing 70.
Perhaps Welling doesn't want to be opening supermarkets in his Superman costume when he's pushing 70?
Welling will be lucky to get a supermarket opening when he's 70.

Why so serious? Welling has probably made 100 times more money than Burt Ward ever made.

Re: Superman costume to appear on SMALLVILLE after all

Wow...the Sunday Smallville presentation should be REALLY interesting then if Tom is showing up! I think this is like his first ever Comic Con or convention ever! Maybe they are planning on doing something with the suit?

Or it's just as possible that they may announce the rumors of a Smallville film were true.

Though I am more interested suddenly and think it may happen.

Unless Welling buys a home shaped like the Enterprise or a Zeppelin he's fine.

He'll be probably raking in syndication money for life. I don't know why, but him as co-producer seems funny.

I heard they'll be announcing a Smallville TV movie entitled Metropolis.

There was a rumor about a month or two ago that had Smallville wrapping up it's production in season 9, followed by a theatrical release of a Metropolis as a "final finale" to the series.

Many balked at the idea as, while cool for fans, probably wouldn't have the mainstream appeal.

I've recently heard that it was, as you mentioned, a made-for-TV movie, which sounds more plausible.

There was also a mention made a few weeks back that there would be big Superman movie news revealed at the Comic Con. Perhaps all this is tied together.

Re: Superman costume to appear on SMALLVILLE after all

I gotta say, I haven't watched Smallville regularly in years but all of this hubbub has gotten me excited about the show again. Maybe this was WB's desire.

Re: Superman costume to appear on SMALLVILLE after all

Sounds like a way to get around the WB-unfavorable court ruling that mandated that the company do something with the character by 2011. By suiting up Welling, even if only on TV, they might satisfy that.

As for the suit, I think a cape-less red and blue leather suit could potentially be awesome. The cape isn't necessary for concealment or flight the way Zorro's and Batman's are, and ditching it could be a nice nod to 21st century American humility. If Supes' message is that everyone should aspire to moral heroism, why add a show-offy cape? We get it, he can fly.

Bryan Singer was absolutely right to spiff and leather up the X-Men uniforms for the screen. Maybe it's time Supes followed suit (no pun intended).

Ha. Ha.

I'm anxious to see this Supersuit, if there is one.
