After 10 years, 'Smallville' flies out of The CW's lineup

Full story: Zap2it.com

"This was not a show about Superman." That's what star Tom Welling says about "Smallville," which has spent 10 years charting Clark Kent's progression from his teen years into young adulthood, putting the native of the planet Krypton at the brink of becoming the Man of Steel.

Um, we haven't seen him fly yet. Not really, anyway. There was the one time in season 4 when he was brainwashed, the season 6/7 finale premiere when it wasn't really him but Bizarro, and one time in season 10 when he was in a virtual world, but I don't think any of those should count.

I like what Tom said about the series Smallville, and I fully agree with his vision of his role. Smallville is a great series. I wish him a future busy career in different roles, allowing him to give the best of himself in his work. Good road

I've felt this pain before - when they killed Mitchell on Being Human. Even though that part of the show is done for me, I'm looking forward to seeing Aidan Turner on the big screen. Same will be for Tom Welling. I'm sad to see the show end (it's been a really fun ride) but I look forward to seeing Tom Welling in other projects. I hope Hollywood takes note of how talented he is and presents him with some really good projects.

first of all, lois lane was never and will never ever have the ability to replace Lana Lang in this show as the "true" love that Clark and Lana conveyed in this show,,,, and she also failed to fill in the place of hers,,,no matter how Mr Welling "the producer" sees it,,, it is obvious that money and position have him see it the way the other producers see it! and forget completely about Lana's role in this show, and how much she brought!
MILLIONS might have known that he wouldnt end with her, but at least that was the premise of the original, true and unique show that used to be called Smallville! we used to hope that TOM WELLING would be at least grateful to what she given as his longest partner in the show, because the millions who left the show after she ended her arc will always remember HER, that much she is powerful, she has changed millions out there from being fans of the myths to fans of this amazing and brave woman that is Lana Lang, the woman who sacrificed all for Clark and he was not worth that sacrifice! it is pretty shameful that Tom Welling is blinded by the arrogance of the superman comics despite its shallow and tasteless plots, Lana Lang is the SOLE reason why this show sustained,,, just because lois lane got the name did not make her outshine Lana!

and you Mr. Welling, if you had loved the fans and appreciated them, it would have given something back to you! but you are just like the producers of this show and like your character,,,,!

Thanks for the interview, they are so rare as Tom Welling is so intensely private, which as a longtime fan I do respect. The ending is undoubtedly going to be bittersweet but I think 10 years is a milestone for any series and well, there's always the DVDs of the series' I wish Tom the best of luck and hope to see him any many more series and/or movies, he is eloquent and obviously incredibly attractive, which is an added bonus :)

On another note @ SV SUCKS - I think you might have lost a bit of perspective. Please have a look at recent comments by Kristin Kreuk particularly on her FB page where she clearly states she's left on good terms and Lana's role is done in the Smallville universe - she's moved on.

I've been watching Superman as long as I can remember. I've watched George Reeves in the Superman Series iwhen it came on in the 50s. I've seen all the Superman movies. I've seen all the Smallville shows. When is the Man of Steel coming in 2012, and is it going to be with people or animated
