Tom Welling explains the major contract he signed that influenced the development of Smallville

During a panel at New York Comic Con 2022, Tom Welling said that he included a clause in his original contract that he would not wear the tights or suit and cape most commonly associated with Superman.

Welling brought it up in response to a question from the panel’s moderator about how the show’s hook was “no flights, no pantyhose.” Welling explained that this is because he saw Smallville as more of a character study, “about people trying to figure out their identities and their place in the world,” and felt it would be distracting Turning Clark into Superman immediately.

Welling added that his fears were not unfounded when he saw a script for the fifth episode of the first season that had his character in a suit. He reiterated that the matter was not up for debate and immediately dismissed the idea as violating his contract. He concluded by saying that the show wouldn’t have lasted as long if Clark had just put the suit on right at the start.

Co-star Kristin Kreuk supported Welling’s position, noting that he had the right idea to put this clause in his contract, saying that “it’s so tempting to jump on it anytime,” and Welling blocked her from doing so , kept the show’s focus on the characters where it should be.
