According to Deadline, Brandon Routh is set to reprise his Superman role in this Fall’s Crisis on Infinite Earths. Tyler Hoechlin is also set to return.
Brandon Routh will don the cape and tights to portray his Superman from 2006’s Superman Returns in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover. Tyler Hoechlin, who was involved in the most recent Elseworlds crossover, returns as his Clark Kent from Supergirl’s Earth. The report adds that the news should be confirmed during San Diego Comic-Con.
Routh is already a part of the Arrowverse but as a different hero. He plays Captain Atom in CW’s Legends of Tomorrow, who has become a fan-favorite character ever since his debut on Arrow. It’s not clear which episode he’ll play Superman in Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Crisis on Infinite Earths will cross over Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman for a five-episode storyline that will change the Arrowverse as we know it.
