Smallville fans will know that Tom Wellingin Superman’s tights and cape, which is why his version of Clark Kent didn’t don the legendary outfit. Even when he returned for his cameo in “Crisis on Infinite Earths”, Welling’s Kal-El was still clad in plaid. However, it’s possible that Welling’s now feeling more amenable to the costume as he’s revealed that he’d love to play the Man of Steel of Robert Pattinson’s universe.
While speaking with YouTube channel El mundo geek de Ernestoneitor, Welling dropped the bombshell that he’s actually good pals with Pattinson. As for whether he would like to share the screen with the English actor, Welling confirmed that he would. “Yeah , I think that would be cool,” he said, before going on to respond in more detail:
“My buddy Rob Pattinson, he is going to be the new Batman. I would love…it would be fun to be the Superman that shows up in his movie, just because he is a friend of mine. Yeah, who knows.”
