During an interview with Buzzfeed, former Smallville star Tom Welling has offered a few words on the current crop of DC superhero TV shows, as well as revealing whether he’d have any interest in reprising the role of Kal-El on CBS’ Supergirl.
“I’m very proud of shows like Arrow and The Flash,” said Welling. “They’re able to ground these characters so that the viewer can relate on a human level to people who used to be only in two dimensions.”
Asked about a potential return as Clark Kent for Supergirl, Welling responded that: “There’s people who would like it. There’s people who don’t like it, but I will tell you that no one has ever asked me to do it. So, I don’t know. It would be kind of odd. I don’t know who he is at that point. He would obviously be Superman…”
As it happens, Supergirl has already cast Kal-El, with Daniel DiMaggio set to play a teenage version of the future Man of Steel in the February 8th episode ‘For the Girl Who Has Everything’.
