Some might remember Tom Welling as Charlie Baker from the Steve Martin-led film, Cheaper By the Dozen, but most probably remember Welling’s portrayal of Clark Kent / Superman from the hit WB and CW series, Smallville. After the show’s 10-season run ended in 2011, he has only appeared in a handful of projects, including Parkland, Draft Day, and The Choice.
After The Choice debuted in February 2016, things have been mostly silent for Welling minus his St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital t-shirt campaign. He hasn’t been announced to be involved with any other projects for the past 17 months, but now we may have an indication of a new project he may appear in – with Welling’s Instagram as the direct source.
On July 7th, Welling posted the following picture onto Instagram (which has been screenshotted from an iPhone).
As you can see, he wrote “Back on set,” which is obviously a strong indication that he is filming something, but there is always a chance he might not be. As for what that project could be, your guess is as good as mine. I’m just happy that he might be involved with a new project. Let’s hope this is the beginning of his true comeback; he’s too talented of an actor not to.
Update: It has been brought to my attention that this picture is actually about Welling promoting Saddle Club with his girlfriend, Jessica Rose Lee. Sorry for the misinterpretation. It looks like we will have to wait longer to hear about any other potential projects.
*This is my personal opinion, so if you disagree, that’s completely okay.*

There were some good comic-book films that were released this year and some iffy ones, so I’ll share my thoughts on the ones that I have seen. SPOILER ALERT! There will be a few minor spoilers within this piece, so if you haven’t seen a particular movie on this list yet and don’t want to know about it, please come back after you’ve seen it. Everyone good? Those still here – let’s jump right in!
1) Deadpool – 9/10
- Balance of incredible comedy and heartfelt moments

- Creativity – low budget and opening credit sequence
2) Captain America: Civil War – 8.5/10
- Airport action sequence
- Iron Man and Captain America
- Introduction to Spider-Man and Black Panther
- No memorable soundtrack
- Slightly unsatisfying conclusion

*Theatrical cut – 6.9 or 7/10*
- Epic action
- Amazing soundtrack
- Wonder Woman
- Ben Affleck
