Welling played Clark Kent on Smallville on The WB/CW from 2001 to 2011. The series also starred Erica Durance, John Glover, Eric Johnson, Sam Jones III, Kristin Kreuk, Allison Mack, Annette O’Toole, Michael Rosenbaum, Jensen Ackles, and John Schneider.
Welling will reprise his Smallville role for The CW‘s annual Arrowverse crossover. He joins fellow Superman stars Brandon Routh, who played Clark Kent and Superman in the film Superman Returns, and Tyler Hoechlin, who plays Superman in Supergirl.

For eight years, Arrow has stood on the shoulders of Smallville. Simply put, there would be no Arrow, and no Arrowverse, without it. So when we first started talking about Crisis on Infinite Earths, our first, second and third priorities were getting Tom to reprise his iconic role as Clark Kent. To say that we’re thrilled would be a Superman-sized understatement.”
