Welling Drops Superman For Marvel Hero?

With “Smallville” finishing this week after ten years, the still spunky Tom Welling is back on the market professionally after finishing his commitment to play Clark Kent.

Of course Superman is the flagship hero of DC Comics, the main rival to Marvel Comics. Now, What’s Playing reports that Marvel has approached the actor to play another superhero in one of their upcoming film properties.

Which role however isn’t clear as the studio has several in development. Recently Welling was considered for “Snow White and the Huntsman”, a role that went to “Thor” star Chris Hemsworth. Former “Smallville” showrunner Alfred Gough has also expressed interest in re-teaming with Welling on a potential reboot of the “Allan Quatermain” franchise.
