Al Gough and Miles Millar created Smallville for television in 2001 and breathed new life into the Superman mythology, taking Clark Kent (Tom Welling) back to his high school days and following him journey in becoming a superhero. Now in its 10th and final season, it is the longest-running comic book based series in television history.
During a recent exclusive phone interview with Collider, the writer/producer team talked about how cool it is to have developed a series that has been on the air for a decade, how they’d never been a fan of Superman prior to creating Smallville, and how they always hoped the final moment of the series would see Clark Kent suiting up and flying off to his destiny as Superman.
