Marvel Eyeing Tom Welling for Comic Book Adaptation

Following his 10-year stint as DC Comic's Clark Kent/Superman on the CW series Smallville, Tom Welling is looking for new roles, and one of them might have him jumping to a rival company. Marvel Studios reportedly has Welling on its radar for an upcoming adaptation of one of their comic books. But which one remains a mystery.

Currently, Marvel has adaptations for Doctor Strange, Runaways and Deathlok on the horizon. It is also possible that Welling may re-team with Smallville producers Alfred Gough and Miles Millar for Quartermain, an adaptation of H. Rider Haggard's novel, King Solomon's Mines, which has Sam Worthington featured as the lead.
There are, of course, a seemingly endless list of characters in the Marvel Comics universe, so with that in mind, we turn the comments section over to you. What Marvel character do you think Mr. Welling should play? Doctor Strange? Deathlok? One of the Runaways? Or someone completely different?
Also, check out the trailer for the series finale of Smallville, which airs this Friday, May 13th.
