Tom Welling to appear at Comic-Con!!
Confirmed by Ausiello HERE!!

Note to those Smallville fans planning to attend Sunday’s event at Comic-Con: You may want to get in line now because a very special guest has just been added to the panel.

Tom freakin’ Welling!

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Welling will make his first-ever Con appearance at the show’s panel discussion on Sunday. He joins exec producers Kelly Souders and Brian Peterson, as well as fellow cast members Allison Mack, Erica Durance, Cassidy Freeman, Justin Hartley and Callum Blue.

This will mark the first time in Smallville history that the entire current cast will be assembled for Comic-Con.

And I repeat: Get in line NOW!


ETA: Per the WBTV press release HERE announcing his appearance at Comic-Con, Tom Welling is now a Smallville co-executive producer! This bodes well for our boy AND the show! Congratulations, Tom!

SAN DIEGO and BURBANK, Calif. (July 24, 2009) - Calling all “Smallville” fans! Series star and co-executive producer Tom Welling will make his first-ever appearance at the world’s greatest pop culture convention, Comic-Con International: San Diego, this Sunday, July 26.

I'm crazy happy! I'm supposed to work this weekend, but there's NO WAY I'm going in now. On Sunday I'll be camped on Twitter, waiting for minute-by-minute updates! :D

I'm so excited, and so proud, and so scared, and so happy and all at the same time! OMG, this is so awesome!

That's EXACTLY how I feel, Carol! I think this must be the best Tommy fangirl day EVER. \o/

Very cool!!!! What a nice surprise for the fans.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 24th, 2009 10:20 pm (UTC) (Link)
I am so excited. The man hasn't done an interview in like THREE years! And this means the entire cast will be there for Sunday's panel. How awesome is that?! *twirls*

What?! Awesome. I new he would be getting a producer credit now I get to tell my brother booyah! And wow about Comic-Con how I wish I could be there to see the man in the flesh.
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 25th, 2009 12:58 am (UTC) (Link)
I'm hoping we'll get plenty of fan vids, so we can experience at least just a taste of the excitement and fun. And I'm so happy about the producer credit! It's about time!

*flails some more*

*dances like a happy Kermit*

*returns to flailing*

*collapses in a heap from exhaustion*

I love you more than I can say. ♥ ♥ ♥

What a day this has been, I can't even tell you. No work accomplished AT ALL. Did you see gonturan's post? She says she'll tape it!! I can't WAIT for Sunday! Plus Misha and Jim and Kripke and Sera and Ben, too!

I found out a couple hours ago but I had to tell my bcc first, lol. This is the best SV news ever and my excitement for the new season has reached new heights. I thought the previous casting spoiler was awesome, but this takes the cake. My Tommy finally getting some respect. I just new that was how they got him to sign, but now it's confirmed. Tommy fangirls everywhere have just exploded with glee.

You and I were already looking forward to S9, but now we have a lot more company! :) This announcement has gone through fandom like wildfire. There are still plenty of cynics and naysayers, but overall the excitement is palpable. And I can barely contain my squee! Tom with at least some degree of creative control, and willing to participate in promoting the show? It's beyond awesome! I can't wait to see what they have in store for us! I just can't believe we have two more months before we find out.

I'm so happy for Tom! This recognition was long overdue.

Such great news! I can't wait to see all the pictures. I just hope he has fun and doesn't get asked too many stupid questions. I'm so proud that he's got the co-exec producer credit!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 25th, 2009 02:33 am (UTC) (Link)
It's all so exciting! I, too, hope he has fun, and that he'll be there for the whole panel, including the Q&A. If so, I hope people don't waste his time and ours by asking a bunch of dumb, trite questions. Can you imagine the luxury of just hearing him talk about anything at all, though? *swoons*

Having Tom officially on the production staff in any capacity increases my confidence in the show. I hope he's given the opportunity to have true creative control, but I can't imagine Tom settling for anything less. Bring on S9!

I'm crying I'm so happy!!! I may not be able to go, but damnit I can enjoy the experience variariously!!!!!
tariel22 From: tariel22 Date: July 25th, 2009 09:51 pm (UTC) (Link)
This really is a momentous occasion! I can't wait for the pics and vids!
