Tom Welling is best known for his role as “Clark Kent” on “Smallville,” a series tied up to “Superman.” Though it showed Welling mostly as the younger version of the “Man of Steel,” he is still one of the many actors who got the chance to play hero. Could he be in line to appear on “The Flash?”

Welling is set to hold a recurring role on “Lucifer,” but his roots of having played “Superman” has egged fans to ask if there was any chance of him testing out the new stars on CW. Before “The Flash,” Welling was asked about the possibility of seeing him on “Supergirl.” Seeing that there is already someone playing “Superman” (Tyler Hoechlin), the only way he could be cast would be in another capacity.

That could either be a supporting role or be one of the evil-doers Kara (Melissa Benoist) has to deal with.

Welling sticking to the side of good

In “Lucifer,” Welling will be taking on the role of “Marcus Pierce.” According to EOnline, he will share the limelight with Tom Ellis where his character would be the antithesis with a strong devotion to firm justice in pursuit of “Chloe Decker” (Lauren German).

With a definite role in store, how can Welling fit in if ever he would be considered for “The Flash?” If so, will it be a regular or part-time role? Seeing that he is part of another show, it seems to be pointing towards the latter.

Further, seeing Welling appear on “The Flash” offers multiple possibilities.

With the multiverse storyline expected to carry on, he (together with “Lucifer” most likely) could be cast at some point should some supernatural threat arise.

As most perhaps know by now, Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) is expected to have his hands full against a new threat in “The Thinker” (Neil Sandilands). The new villain seems to be tied up to witty plots though a touch of the supernatural may fit in – depending on what showrunners decide.

Will "Lucifer" be part of the crossovers?

If not through that channel, there are the crossover specials which could pave the way for Welling to come in. In his interview with Nuke The Fridge, the 40-year-old actor says that he has a few ideas on how to make it happen. If so, will the producers listen to his ideas to make it all work?

So far, actors and actresses who have played in past renditions of DC superheroes have been seen on the CW shows. For “The Flash”, it is John Wesley Shipp who takes on the role of “Jay Garrick.” On Supergirl, Dean Cain and Teri Hatcher (stars of “Lois & Clark”) were included. Cain took on the role of “Jeremiah Danvers” while Hatcher played the evil mother of “Mon-El” (Chris Wood), “Rhea.” So what role may be fit for Welling if showrunners do try him out?
