Clark Finally Dons the Superman Costume in the 'Smallville' Series Finale (VIDEO)

'Smallville' - 'Finale'Fans of 'Smallville' (Fri., 8PM ET on The CW) have waited ten years for Clark Kent to don the classic blue-and-red costume. The creators had promised that their version of Clark would never fly, or wear the costume. But, perhaps when they said that they didn't expect the show to run for a decade.

Nevertheless, Clark finally got over his insecurities and learned to embrace both sides of his heritage. As such, Jor-El presented him with the classic Superman costume while Darkseid helped him realize his ability to fly.

Full shots of Clark in the costume were relegated to distant shots utilizing CGI, but there were a few close-ups, including a shared moment between newlyweds Lois and Clark when Superman saved Air Force One from crashing. A meaningful look through the window of the plane showed how proud she was of him. This was the beginning of all the greatness he could accomplish.

Were you hoping to properly see Tom Welling in the Superman costume? Or are you satisfied with the fleeting glimpses we got?

The money shot people have been waiting ten years to see, and they screw it up so badly that it's hard to believe that they didn't do it on purpose. Apparently, Welling didn't want to wear the suit because he was afraid that it would wreck the totally awesome career he's had outside of Smallville.

I was hoping to actually see him in the costume. I've been waiting 10 yrs to see Tom in those tights, lol

And we're still waiting, Kelly.

Essentially, Smallville fans got shafted: As I've said in other discussions, a couple of CGI shots and closeups of Welling with red cape on his shoulders or him opening his shirt up at the end does NOT equate to him in the suit.
