Smallville alumi Tom Welling praises Ben Affleck as Batman


09 September 2013

He played the young Clark Kent aka Kal-El in the CW hit show Smallville, and Tom Welling has weighed in with his thoughts on Ben Affleck as Batman in Zack Snyder's Superman vs Batman.

Speaking to E! News, Welling praised Affleck saying "He's a tremendous actor, he's a wonderful director and I wish him the best."

Weighing in on the fan uproar that followed the announcement of Affleck as the Caped Crusader, Welling cautioned fans not to rush to judgment of the casting, adding "It's hard to criticise things before they even happen, I know they'll endeavour to make the best film they can."

Welling returns to cinemas alongside Zac Efron in Peter Landesman's drama Parkland, which arrives in UK cinemas on November 8.
