Smallville: Tom Welling talks to MTV News
Tom Welling Wants Lex Luthor To Return To 'Smallville' For The Tenth And Final Season
by Blair Marnell

Earlier this week, the CW network announced that the upcoming tenth season of "Smallville" will also be its last.

And while there have been hints that the tenth season may focus on Darkseid as the main villain, "Smallville" star Tom Welling told MTV News which character he would like to see Clark Kent take on in the final season.



"I want to see Lex [Luthor]," said Welling. "I want to see him come back. In the show, he's still alive. He's just not around. But I want to see Michael [Rosenbaum] and I want to see Lex Luthor. I want to know how that relationship really turns out. Because that's the big relationship that I believe propelled Clark to become Superman."

The first hints of Lex Luthor's survival appeared in the "Justice Society" episode by comic scribe Geoff Johns — in addition to further hints in last week's season finale. However, Michael Rosenbaum has already publicly stated that he will not return to "Smallville" to reprise his role.

Welling also addressed Superman's iconic costume and whether he might finally wear it now that the series is in its home stretch.

"We've seen glimpses of it with the cape and Martha [Kent] presenting it to Clark and saying 'this was in the ship when you got here," related Welling. "I'm sure we're going to see it, I just don't know in what capacity."

"I don't know if you're going to see me in tights, if that's what you're asking," joked Welling.

He wasn't joking, MTV. LOL! He doesn't want to wear the suit ever.

I don't know means NO! :) Tom's a smart guy. I don't want to see him in tights either.

Oooh, thanks for the link! It's great to see him so determined to bring Lex back - and of course to him that means Michael. Accept no substitutes!

PS - are you getting any work done today?

I love how in Tom's world it's all about Clark and Lex. Ships? What ships?

I knew I would never get any work done during the Upfronts, so I took the day off from work. Am I a crazy devoted fangirl or what? :D

I'm still flailing about that adorable smile he gave the interviewer after the comment about the tights. Why must you torture us with the cute, Tom? We all know you'll go back to your hermit life after this and deprive us of your face for the next six months! D:

Gotta appreciate all the Lex love, though. tasabian will be SO pleased! :D

Every time he does this I get my hopes up that he'll come out of his hermit cave more often. But even if he doesn't, I'm more than grateful for the wealth of interviews and pics he gave us at this event.

He seemed very happy and at ease at the Upfronts, even more so than at Comic-Con. I suspect he was mostly riding the high of the series pickup for Hellcats, but he seemed really enthused for Smallville, too. I loved to see him smile so much, and he made me feel very optimistic about the new season.

You know I thought of tasabian first when Tom started talking about Lex, and especially when he started openly wooing Michael on camera! :D

This must be my fav interview that came out today. :D

Because that's the big relationship that I believe propelled Clark to become Superman.

Agreed, Tom. Agreed.

He's adorable.
And I love how he seem to get us, and knows how important Lex is.

I love that Tom has opinions about the show and his character, and is out there expressing them. He still cares, and he's still engaged! I could listen to him talk all day long.

And that smile at the end? Devastating! *swoons*

This. It should be illegal to be that pretty, but I'm glad it's not,

I KNOW!! I wouldn't be able to form a coherent thought after that! So cute, and so sexy!

He really is. I've watched all his interviews countless times, but I still get a big smile on my face every time I click on one of them again. He charms me completely!

I want to see the tights! ;)

You know, I have no great desire to see him in the tights. I'd love to see him in something like Ollie's outfit though, just in red and blue. Can you imagine Tom in tight, sleeveless leather? C'mon, show, Ollie could have his guy make something up, like he offered to at the end of Roulette, and then Clark could try it on and ultimately reject it. Just take lots of promo pics before he does. :D

I haven't commented on your new Supes wallie yet (sorry!), but it is, of course, magnificent. Love the icon!

♥♥♥ Oh, I have never been so in love with him!!! He is wooing Michael back, full court press!

It's a week later, and I'm still sneaking peeks at these interview vids on a daily basis. I just can't get enough of Tom telling the whole world how much he wants Michael, and Lex, back. ♥

I still want someone to make a video of all Tom's Upfront quotes about Michael and Lex put together. I could watch that forever! :)
