Superman tv and movie people are talking

superman_image.jpgMediaharX posted some information on the new Superman project that Allison Mack, from SMALLVILLE apparently was dishing out:

She says that Tom Welling has definitely talked to the people at the Superman movie about starring in it – and she said “personally I think he’s the one actor that could do that role justice – he is Superman!”. She assured us that the superman film is still happening, because the film folks are talking to the tv folks about not treading on anyone’s toes and vice versa. Someone said she should play Lois, and she said that’d be too weird and after all, they’ve already got Jessica Beal or Beyonce.

I must say that while Tom Welling wouldn’t be my first pick to play the Man of Steel, I think he would be good in the role. Is there really anything to these rumors? Who knows, but as long as Keanu Reeves isn’t Superman, then I’m happy. Read the whole article here

  1. I believe they could get Bill Brewer to play superman. He has a great body for the part. Maybe they could throw in a sidekick like superlad, starring Matt Clark, these two love each other. Its only fitting they be in a movie together.

  2. This Brandon fellow might be attractive, but he ain’t no Superman. And he can’t compete with his predecessors, Dean Kain, Tom Welling or Christopher Reeve…hells no! Tom Welling should play Superman for the upcoming movie. He fits the part and he has been Superman for four years. Christopher Reeve will always be Superman and we watched him, in away, pass the torch to Tom. Studio executes….one Superman per decade please!!! I feel the movie will be great, but this will be like that old James Bond movie (that no one cares to remember) where the torch was passed to Timothy Dalton instead of Pierce Bronson. People watched but didn’t except it! Needless to say…It BOMBED! If they keep this guy, Batman Begins will kick its A#$ …..hands down. If this new movie casting doesn’t match or top the first….special effects will not be enough to save it. Oh…and that suit! What’s up with that? It SUCKS! The suit Christopher Reeve wore for the 1978 film looked better. If its a case were Tom doesn’t want the part or filming schedule is too tight…..I hope he changes his mind and/or the studio gives in some. Let’s face it Smallville is coming to a close whether we want it or not. It’s almost time for Clark Kent to leave to embark on his destiny anyway. Might as well have it lead to the movies.

  3. welling is perfect for the role this other clown they got in doesnt look the part at all clark kent is tom welling in the minds eye of all the fans right now so if the studio wants this film to be a commercial success they aught to rethink their leading man, batman begins will kicks superman returns ass in cinema if the casting stays the same, bring in welling he’s a cool superman.

  4. I also beleive that Tom Welling should play as the next Superman!!!!!!! Superman fans have been watching Smallville for four years now, and all the fans have seen Christopher Reeve pass the torch to Tom. Let’s get all the Superman fans together, plead with the movie makers and try to establish to Tom that it is his DESTINY to play this much needed role. Christopher Reeve will always be Superman, but lets pass the torch to Tom just like Christopher did.

  5. Omg……………….Tom is the hottest guy that lives!!!!! ssomeday im going to meet him….i hope smallville is the best show ever made!!! ahhhhhh so dang hot and love his smile and eyes

  6. I tend to agree with you Johnny that there is a lot of Superman going on right now… but the reality is that makes it the perfect time to do the film (from a marketing point of view).

    Interest in Superman is higher right now that it has been in a long time… which makes it the logical time to strike while the iron is hot. Yes, it may cause SOME confussion, but not much.

    Personally… I’d like to see them wait another 2 or 3 year before launching the project… but I can’t argue that from a money and marketing perspective, now is the time.

  7. I believe theyre rushing into ALOT witht his movie. They just want to get it out. For now, there is TOO MUCH Superman. I think they should wait till Smallville ends, and THEN make the final episode of the series a bride to the movie. Even if its not with Tom Welling. They should wait for the audiences and fans not to get confused, cuz right now, theres too much Superman going on.

  8. oh yea i forgot i don’t think beyonce should be lois because she would make the part a game. It should be almost real you know other wise superman lovers like me will not be satisfied with the poor illlistration.

  9. Tom Welling is perfect for the topic of superman. For one he is superman!!!! Plus thousands of people refer to him as superman. When they watch movies like Cheaper by the Dozen they say hey that is superman. If they see someone who isn’t him playing superman they might become ill. For my sake i hope he is superman. He is Hot and we can not deny that he has the abs to fill the suit. LOL!

  10. Hell Yes!!!! Tom Welling should be THE NEXT SUPERMAN!! Hell he looks like him!. Well like the Superman for the new Justice League Cartoon. Remember the old saying, If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. C. Mullins… (Nick Fury)….Tram Ky.

  11. I also think that Tom Welling deseves the part of superman might as well he has been playing Clark Kent for almost 4 years now. The only problem is that he refuses to be Superman and i vote for Tom Welling only. The other guys just don’t fit I can only see Tom Welling. Until they can get him no Superman movie!!! Lois Lane they need to think hard about that one no Drew Barrymore and no beyounce(SP).

  12. I think that Tom Welling should be superman in the fifth superman movie. He is a great superman. I don’t approve of the idea of Nicholas Cage being superman, it just looks wrong. But Beyounce could be a great Louis Lane.

  13. They need to hold off on the movie for another 4 or 5 years. Let smallville make it’s run… I’d be ready to see Tom jump into the role of a older Superman. All the other rumored actors just don’t fit the glove.

    Who wants a reseeding hairlined superman thats as skinny as a tooth pic? (No offese to Nick Cage intended).

  14. As much as I am a HUGE Smallville fan, I don’t want to see Tom Welling in the new Superman movie. Sure he IS Superman but it would make the movie into a Smallville movie.

    Not that it would be a bad thing but Tom Welling wouldnt be able to return to Smallville so this would have to be the benchmark that ends the Smallville portion of Clark Kent’s life and has him move to Metropolis and start on being Superman.

    The ONLY way it would work is if Smallville is over and the Superman TV series continued.

    I still vote for Nick Cage.
