As we reported earlier this month, Tom Welling revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he had a chance to return to the world of Superman on TV when approached to possibly play Clark Kent or Superman at the beginning of Season 2 of “Supergirl”. However, Welling knocked back the idea, choosing instead to return to our screens in the TV series “Lucifer”, where he’ll play the role of Marcus Pierce, an accomplished police lieutenant. He explains more in a new interview published by EW.com…

“I definitely didn’t want to play Clark Kent again,” Welling says. “The great thing about Clark is he didn’t know who he was and he didn’t know what he was supposed to do with what he had and his abilities. This character very much knows what he’s capable of and knows what he wants to do and knows how to do it, so as much fun as that is to play, it wasn’t necessarily because of Clark that I chose this character. It was so many more factors than just, ‘I don’t want play Clark again,’ but I’d be lying if I was saying that I do not enjoy playing something very different for sure.”

“Lucifer” will return Monday, October 2nd at 8.00pm ET on Fox.
