Tom Welling Gets Black Superman Suit For Arrowverse Crossover In New Fan Art

Smallville Tom Welling Black Suit Superman Arrowverse

Smallville star Tom Welling suits up with his iconic black Superman suit in a new concept for the Arrowverse crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths.

Tom Welling was the star of DC’s most prolific live-action superhero series on television prior to the launch of the Arrowverse in Smallville, where he portrayed an adolescent version of Clark Kent who was well on his way to becoming Superman. It’s been quite some time since he last portrayed Clark Kent, so Tom Welling returning for the role needs the right suit. Digital artist “spdrmnkyxiii” has reimagined him as Superman in the classic black suit worn in The Death and Return of Superman for his appearance in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover event.

Drop down below to see the Arrowverse crossover event concept with Smallville star Tom Welling wearing a black suit as Superman:

As it stands, Tom Welling will be joining fellow Superman actors Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh, who will be playing other versions of the Man of Steel. Tom Welling previously turned down fan requests to take part in the setting in previous years, so seeing him serve as one of the big heroes working to save DC’s multiverse ought to be a real treat for Smallville fans.

The Arrowverse crossover event has been teased since the very first episode of Grant Gustin’s The Flash, where a newspaper headline from the year 2024 revealed the Barry Allen’s fate was to disappear during a “crisis.” However, the fifth season finale of The Flash accelerated this when the original newspaper headline changed the date of the event from 2024 to 2019. To add to this, the seventh season finale of Stephen Amell’s Arrow set up Oliver Queen’s role in the next crossover by having him join the Monitor on a mission to warn other worlds of the crisis, as part of the arrangement the DC Comics hero made in order to save the lives of both The Flash and Supergirl.

Crisis on Infinite Earths will span two quarters and consist of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The Arrowverse crossover will launch with three episodes in December before concluding with two additional episodes in January.
