Routh played Superman in the 2006 Bryan Singer-directed Superman Returns, which grossed $391 million at the worldwide box office. However, in this upcoming season's Arrowverse crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths, he won't be the only Superman to appear.
Some San Diego Comic-Con news has leaked early.
Crisis on Infinite Earths will playout over five parts on Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow and Batwoman. Tyler Hoechlin plays the part in the Arrowverse, having shown up on Supergirl, Arrow and The Flash in past episodes. Perhaps following the crossover, Legends of Tomorrow could return in the spring with Routh portraying Superman. However, Routh's performance was well-regarded, with a pitch-perfect recreation of Christopher Reeve's Clark Kent, so it's fitting that he'll get the chance to get some closure with the character. It's so big that there are specific executive producers working on it from several different shows and it's being plotted out in a way that puts every other crossover event to shame. We'll find out more info during the Comic-Con panel later today.
Nobody can play hopelessly optimistic like Brandon Routh and that's just what the Arrowverse needs. Routh also portrays Ray Palmer, aka "The Atom", on The CW's "DC's Legends of Tomorrow". He is taking to the skies and returning as Superman.
