Smallville ended a couple weeks ago and a lot of people were unhappy that we didn’t get to see Tom Welling in the Superman suit, show producer Brian Peterson talked with The Hollywood Reporter about their decision to keep Welling out of the full costume.
“What we wanted to do all along was show hints at where he was going because that is a whole different story that is yet to be told. It felt like it gave just enough without starting to tell a whole different story that is left for all the other media.”
Peterson also went on to say that Smallville has always been about Clark becoming the hero from the famed mythos and that Superman stories and will continue to be told through other places like next years Man of Steel.
“[Showing Tom in the full suit] to me is just not super relevant and not what we were trying to do. We were actually thrilled that everybody came together and was on board with the shots that we specifically picked. We all wanted it to be the end of Clark Kent’s journey because it’s a show about Clark Kent. In the days when we saw him in a flannel shirt, the suit was the furthest thing from his mind.”
What do you guys think was you satisfied with the way the show ended? Or are you upset that Welling never actually put on the suit.
