SMALLVILLE's Tom Welling Will Reportedly Appear in ARROW Season 8
It looks like Smallville star Tom Welling might actually finally make his way into the Arrowverse. According to a recent report from worldofmera on Twitter, Welling confirmed at Armageddon Expo in New Zealand that he will appear in Arrow Season 8, which is the final season of the series.
Welling reportedly said, "I will be on Arrow next season", and this is what was shared on Twitter:
TOM WELLING JUST CONFIRMED HE’LL BE IN THE NEXT SEASON OF ARROW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Smallville alum Tom Welling may be headed to Arrow for the show's eighth and final season. It was then noted that that Welling didn't say what his role will be or how big of a role he’ll have. He also apparently turned down the opportunity to play Superman in CW’a Supergirl, which is kind of a bummer because fans would have loved that!

- Confirmed for next season of Arrow
- No confirmation of what role
- No confirmation that he’ll be Superman
- No confirmation of whether it’s a cameo or an ongoing role
- Tom turned down being in Supergirl#Smallville #Superman #Arrow https://t.co/ce7HKXBE0c
As of right now, there’s no official confirmation from The CW, but if this news is actually true, then I imagine it will come.
It will be interesting to see how Welling will be utilized in the series. There are ways to bring his version of Superman into the show with the way that they’ve played with the multiverse, and I’m sure fans would flip over that, but I think it will end up being something different. I’m just not sure what.
What would you like to see from Welling in Arrow? How do you think they’ll use him in the show?
