Smallville stars say they’d love to come back for an animated series…

April 8th, 2018 by Marc Comments

While the whole fandom may be tied up with the Arrowverse, Gotham and other shows, the DC series that really kicked it all off was Smallville.

The series that chronicled the rise of Clark Kent to the man of steel over ten seasons and was a fan favourite and still hasn’t gone too far from the gaze of fans, be it with the addition of Batman in the comic series (here), the inclusion of cast members in the Arrowverse (here) or even ways in wihich the series may actually be PART of the Arrowverse (here), the fans LOVE to see this world still breathing.

And now, Clark and Lex Author, actors Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum, united at Awesome Con and, during the DC Comics Panel, the duo discussed the series’ possible rebirth… as an animated series!

“I mean, animated could be fun,” said Welling when asked if he’d like to see the series continue.

“I said to Al [Gough, one of Smallville’s creators],” continued Rosenbaum, “we should do an animated Smallville. That would be huge! I mean, Smallville: The Animated Series, with all the real voices? And I wouldn’t have to shave my head! We’ve got to do that. Can you imagine us on mics doing the same dialogue?”

We have to say, it would indeed be awesome and, who knows, with DC introducing its own streaming service soon (here) that will feature the return of Young Justice, along with Metropolis and Titans, it may happen… we’d be in front of our screens every week, that’s for sure!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
