SOMEBODY'S gonna be happy about this! ;\)


As I keep saying to any who post this rumor, "It ain't going to happen!"


1. Tom Welling, regardless of any "contract" he had with Smallville, was reluctant to even portray Superman. The guy wouldn't watch any movie, read any comic, etc. He also expressed repeatedly, he's simply not interested in playing Superman on the big screen, stands to reason he feels the same way on TV (Tom did, initially, reject the role of Clark Kent when he thought he'd be playing Superman). So, in saying that, why would he want to appear as Superman in the Flash? He didn't even appear as Superman in Smallville's series finale except in CGI longshots and close ups.

2. Geoff Johns himself has said, "No Batman, no Superman." I don't understand why people think he doesn't have a say in who does or who does not appear in the Flash. Good chances are, he does. If Tom DOES appear in the Flash, I gearantee, it won't be as Superman, it'll be as Clark Kent (and appearing strictly as Clark is far more believable given Tom's high reluctance to portray Superman).

Sorry folks, this is just a rumor and it's not going to happen. If I was into making bets, I'd even bet a million dollars on it.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
