The WB has released images from the second to last “Smallville” episode called Prophecy.  They give you a better view of the super suit.  It looks like the suit was influenced by the one used for “Superman Returns.”

Something is telling me that Clark Kent will not end up wearing it. What do you think?

    I remember reading that the shows creators/producers did NOT want the Clark character to ever wear “the suit” so I highly doubt he will. They might not even let him take it out of the crystal case we see it in…

    Dave, actually it was Warner Bros and/or DC ixnaying any effort for the show to use the suit and other likenesses … their reasoning was they didn’t want to have the TV series confuse the image of the film franchise… You can’t have two different actors playing the same character in different venues at the same time. This is also why we’ve seen mock ups of Batman, Wonder Woman and such throughout the years of the show. It didn’t make sense then but once the permissions were snagged, well, at least for this last episode, now we see the suit. (It helps to have a new Superman film on the horizon, for this to build some fan anticipation.

    Actually, the show’s creators and original producers, Al Gough and Miles Millar, have said in recent interviews that their plan for the last shot of the series was to show Clark in the suit and have him fly off. That’s not to say current showrunners Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders are going to use that same final image, but they’ve been with the show since the second season and would like to incorporate some of the creators’ thoughts and ideas into the finale.

    For the record, the suit they are using for display on the show is one of Brandon Routh’s suits from Superman Returns. They’ve replaced the cape with their own cloth version, which is quite a bit more red. Since ithe suit was made specifically for Routh, it’s not likely Welling will be able to use this exact one. It remains to be seen what suit they have for Welling to actually wear and just how long he’ll wear it in the finale.

    First of all, that will be like the fourth time since last season that they’ve shown the suit. Secondly, that is the Superman Returns suit. Maybe that’s why it looks “influenced” by it. There are a few surviving suits from SR and they let Smallville use one of them. They’re just changing the cape to a more traditional red.

    Since they changed the cape and the cape is a BIG part of the suit….THIS IS NOT THE SUPERMAN RETURNS SUIT.
