Welling as Superman?

Welling as Superman?
Clint

“Green Lantern” co-writer Marc Guggenheim talked to MTV about his forthcoming emerald-coloured superhero jaunt and mentioned a possible cameo appearance by Superman.

The co-writer said, if he has any say, which he probably won’t, Tom Welling of “Smallville” fame might even get the job.

Might Welling get the chance to play the Man of Steel on the big screen after all?

“There were rumors that Tom Welling would have a cameo in ‘Batman Begins’ as a young Clark Kent, to meet up with a young Bruce Wayne,” Guggenheim noted. “But you have to be careful when you do things like that, because it sounds great in concept, but when you sit down to watch it, it poses the danger of pulling you out of the film.”

But as a self-proclaimed “sucker for a good Easter egg,” Guggenheim said, “The fanboy in me would love that. Robert Downey, Jr. in ‘The Hulk’ was awesome. I love that stuff in general, and I think the fans would enjoy it. Brandon Routh or even Tom Welling [in ‘Green Lantern’] would be awesome. And anything is possible. The beauty part of being the writer, though, is that I don’t actually have to make that judgment call.”
