The first image of Brandon Routh suiting up as the Man of Steel in The CW’s upcoming Arrow-verse crossover has arrived. In the five-part Crisis on Infinite Earths event, the Legends of Tomorrow star will appear as a version of Superman inspired by the Kingdom Come storyline.
Routh first teased his playing this role at San Diego Comic-Con, but this is the first time we’ve actually seen him in the costume. That said, it’s not his first time playing Superman. He previously played the character on the big screen in 2006’s Superman Returns.
Routh won’t be the only Superman appearing in Crisis on Infinite Earths. Tyler Hoechlin, who appears in the role on Supergirl, will also suit up for the crossover. Additionally, it was recently announced that Smallville star Tom Welling will be reprising his role from that series, playing yet another take on Superman.
The Crisis crossover is loaded with special appearances. Beyond the many Supermans (Supermen?), the event will also see Elizabeth Tullock (Supergirl) and Erica Durance (Smallville) appearing as two versions of Lois Lane, Kevin Conroy (Batman: The Animated Series) as Bruce Wayne, and Burt Ward (Robin in the 1960s Batman series) in an undisclosed role. It’s also been revealed by TV Line that Ashley Scott will pop up playing Huntress, the role she first played in 2002’s short-lived Birds of Prey series.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover will play out over five episodes of TV in December and January. Here’s when you’ll be able to watch the events unfold on The CW:
