When it was announced that the hit The CW television series Smallville was coming to an end, fans of the show were distraught and could not see what show would be able to take the place of their beloved Smallville. However, The CW then announced that they were going to bring us a new television series based on the DC character Green Arrow, much to the delight of the Smallville fans.
Arrow has since gone on to prove a very successful show on The CW, following two very strong and very impressive seasons, with a third season on the way later in the year. The success of Arrow has seen another DC character The Flash making a cameo appearance, before going on to land his very own television series, which will premiere later in the year.
Now that Warner Bros. and DC have confirmed that their movies will not interlink with their television shows, some fans have called for Smallville star Tom Welling to appear in Arrow as Superman. One eager fan said, "Now that Arrow ain't crossing over with the movies, why not get Tom Welling back for a Superman cameo. Would be EPIC!!!"
Unfortunately this does seem highly unlikely to happen. After all, we had a completely different Oliver Queen aka Green Arrow in Smallville. We would not say no to seeing Tom Welling making a guest appearance as another character, or even seeing a recast Clark Kent in the show but we doubt either will happen any time soon.
Would you like to see Tom Welling or Superman making an appearance in Arrow?
