BRANDON ROUTH To Return as SUPERMAN

BRANDON ROUTH To Return as SUPERMAN

Routh himself got very positive reviews in his gig replacing Reeve, but the film itself was met with a more lukewarm reaction.

Actor Tyler Hoechlin has portrayed Superman in previous Arrowverse crossover episodes and will also be reprising his role as Superman. A few years later Zack Snyder would do a reboot featuring Henry Cavill in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman and Justice League.

Brandon Routh's Superman was introduced with great fanfare in 2006's Superman Returns, which was designed as a direct sequel to the first two Superman movies from the 1970s and '80s starring Christopher Reeve.

Deadline reported on Friday morning that Routh will suit up as Superman for the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths event. It's not that I completely dislike what's happening withArrow, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl, but it's a lot to keep up with. It is gonna be an emotional time for us fans but we can already see it being super epic. In addition, the Crisis On Infinite Earths episode of Stephen Amell's Arrow may also serve as the series finale considering the show concludes with its final 10-episode run this fall. Since the latter is a midseason debut, the crossover event will begin in December with Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, and won't finish until early in 2020 with the fifth season premiere of DC's Legends of Tomorrow and series premiere of Batwoman. The heroes and villains from the various Earths eventually formed an alliance and defeated the Anti-Monitor. And now, this year's event is set to bring not one, but two Supermen into battle.

The CW will be hosting an Arrowverse panel on Saturday night at San Diego Comic-Con where the formal announcement of this news is expected to be made.
