Tom Welling And Michael Rosenbaum Express Interest In A SMALLVILLE Revival - But In Animated Form

During a Smallville panel with Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum at Awesome-Con, both actors expressed interest in reprising their respective roles, albeit in a Smallville animated series! Check it out...

Although Smallville has been off the air for almost seven years, the show is responsible for paving the way for the "Arrowverse" and other DC television shows on the CW network. Smallville lasted for an impressive 10 seasons, and remains to be the longest running superhero series to this day. After the show ended on television, the series continued with season 11 in comic book form, which featured Batman, Wonder Woman, and Green Lantern.

A Smallville panel with Tom Welling and Michael Rosenbaum was held last weekend at Awesome-Con in Washington D.C. The panel featured a half-hour Q&A session, where one fan asked if Smallville could be brought back in live-action or in animated form on the DC streaming service. Tom Welling responded to the fan with:
“I mean, animated could be fun.”

Michael Rosenbaum was also on board with the animated series idea:

“I said to Al [Gough, one of Smallville’s creators], 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?”


Going by Michael Rosenbaum's response, it would appear that he had previously discussed adapting Smallville into an animated series with Al Gough. In recent years, there has been a popular trend of reviving TV shows, and having a Smallville animated series with the original cast in tow on DC's streaming service, would be a recipe for success.

Also, here is the Smallville panel from Awesome-Con:
