Tom Welling On The Flash Rumor Retraction


Recently I came across a rumor that Tom Welling, who played Clark Kent on Smallville would be returning as the character in a future episode of The Flash, however after looking deeper into the story I discovered the source is not a legitimate one and felt it was my responsibility to own up to my mistake in running with that story.

We do our best here at DCCOMICSMOVIE.COM to avoid spreading rumors and are doing what we can to be a trusted news source, instead of just trying to get more page views.

While it would be cool and possible to one day see Tom Welling return, it is currently not true and again I wanna apologize to our readers and other sites who have sourced us on the story, we will continue to do our best in only report facts and if they’re rumors, they’re rumors from a source that’s actually creditable.

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me

      dude are you 5, grow up

        That’s rich considering I’m the one schooling you.

        Now write out 100 times:

        “Tom Welling will never wear a Superman suit.”

        • SuperDudeAbides

          Never say never.

          I for one would love for this to be true. Even if it’s not Welling. I think if they are going to go down the comic rabbit hole they need to take the restraints off. If we can have 2 different Flashes (TV and DCU) then we should be able to have 2 Batmans, 2 Supermans etc. Especially since they keep hinting at Flashpoint, FYI Batman (Thomas Wayne) is a HUGE integral part of that story as is Aquaman and Wonder Woman.

          • UltimaRex

            There already ARE two Supermen. The Superman in the upcoming Supergirl TV show is NOT the MOS Superman.

            And no, it WON’T be Welling either.

            As for Batman, I doubt Gotham’s Bruce Wayne is the BvS one…

        I called out this post weeks ago on KryptonSite:

        Anyone who would believe a rumor without checking the sources first is a moron. All it would’ve taken is about 2 seconds of Googling to realize “Comic Central City” does not exist. I do commend and respect you for posting a retraction and admitting your mistake, just please don’t do it again. Unless it’s April 1, then by all means…

        • Mark

          The same site that came up with this has used “Comic Central City” multiple times in the past as the “source” for crap they made up, including multiple BvS trailer rumors. It’s like their Allan Smithee or something.

    Would have been an absolutely epic concept. Flash could have spent a season in a different universe trying to get home for a few years. Oh, well.

  • C_uR_Life

    It’s fun to dream. It would have been awesome to see Tom as superman again.

  • Crimsonrain

    Best you can hope for is maybe having DC comics cross over the Smallville Comic with the Flash TV comic.

  • Wallace Morrison

    I was wondering how interesting it would be if Batman started showing up for let’s say about 3 episodes in Flash’s 4th season and then around 4 in Flash’s 5th season, and somewhere in that last episode of the 5th season that Batman would be in the Flash, if he took off his cowl and it was…….Tom Welling? LOL

    They should make a new show on the CW with Tom Wellkng and simply call it “Metropolis” as a continuation from Smallville.
