Tom Welling Eyes Marvel Superhero for Next Project
Actor Tom Welling will make his final appearance as the DC Comics character Clark Kent on the CW series Smallville this Friday, May 13. It seems the actor wants to take on another superhero role after his 10-year stint as Superman. Ironically, the actor is said to be on Marvel's radar for one of their fuure comic book adventures.
It isn't known which Marvel title the studio is looking at Tom Welling for, although there are planned adaptations of Doctor Strange, Runaways, and Deathlok on the horizon. Tom Welling was also in the running for the Huntsman in Snow White and the Huntsman, although Chris Hemsworth accepted the role, which we reported yesterday.
We reported just under a year ago that Sam Worthington was attached to star, although that does not seem to be the case anymore. It isn't known if Alfred Gough and Miles Millar have offered the role to Tom Welling, although insiders suggest they are "keen" on working with him again.
