With the final episode of Smallville getting closer by the second, fans are in a swarm of anticipation as to whether or not star Tom Welling will slip into the iconic suit. Well, we don’t have the answer just yet but the CW is painting a pretty picture. Or poster as the case may be.
The image comes via Entertainment Weekly who also have their hands on a (non-embedable) teaser commercial set to air on the network today. Listen carefully and you just might hear something familiar.
Yup, that’s part of the 1978 original Superman score. What are they trying to do to us?!
Along with “The Planet Krypton” notes comes Welling saying, “I finally know who I am,” accompanied visually by the Superman symbol and the word, “Believe.” Honestly, I know the whole motto of Smallville used to be “no capes, no tights,” and that some people are against Welling getting into the real costume but at this point, if he doesn’t, I’m going to be pretty let down.
Smallville returns with new episodes April 15 while the two-part series finale is set for May 13.
