The first, posted last Friday, hints that Smallville's very own Superman, actor Tom Welling, may very well be in the running to play Superman in the Justice League film. Obviosuly this is something Smallville fans have been dreaming of for years. IESB.net tried to get to the bottom of things...
We contacted Tom Welling's reps over at CAA and were quickly (and I mean quickly!) transferred to the PR department of theatrical releases for comment, we are waiting on an official comment at this time.
But what about the shooting schedule of Smallville that is supposed to go through around April you ask? Word is, the production of Smallville in Vancouver is even willing to work around whatever Welling's schedule may be in order for their small screen superhero to make the jump to theaters. Or my thought is, maybe they will continue and completely turn the show over to the new girl in town, Kara, aka Supergirl.
We have contacted the Smallville production office and are awaiting a call back. We also contacted Warner Bros. corporate communications who handles projects in development. When we asked if they would give us a comment on George Miller (the soon to be announced director) or Tom Welling the answer we got was, "No."
We've got this locked in from multiple sources, again, Chinese water torture goes a LONG WAY! But that's the word!
