FIRST LOOK: Brandon Routh as Kingdom Come Superman from Crisis On Infinite Earths is just perfect…

September 28th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Holy hell! Earlier today we revealed the first image of Smallville Clark and Lois Tom Welling and Erica Durance from the upcoming Crisis On Infinite Earths (here) but tonight we have a couple of really cool images of Brandon Routh as Kingdom Come Superman.

The actor shared the image below on his Instagram, while the above one was revealed by EW and they both… perfect.

And it’s been confirmed that Routh will be playing both Ray Palmer/The ATOM and this version of Superman.

Of course, this isn’t the actor’s first time in the blue and red, having played him in Superman Returns in 2006.

“It’s an opportunity for me to kind of say hello and goodbye to the character in a way I didn’t get to the first time,” Routh said in July.

“Being a young individual of 24, 25, I thought, ‘Oh, I’m going to do this for years and make multiple movies.’ And that of course didn’t happen. I’m just very honored to be able to do this one last time.”

He will join Tyler Hoechlin and Tom Welling in the roles of Clark Kent form different earths.

It looks like Superman is going to be a a big part of the crossover, with show runner Marc Guggenheim revealing a few day sago that they tried to get some of the cast from the now cancelled Krypton to appear:

British born actor Cameron Cuffe played Superman’s grandfather Seg-El in both seasons of Krypton and almost had his role saved by Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow creator Marc Guggenheim. He’s contributed heavily to both shows as well as all of the crossovers, so far he’s been working tirelessly to ensure Krypton’s survival but unfortunately it was all for naught.

Crisis on Infinite Earths kicks off Sunday, December 8th on Supergirl, then continues with a Monday episode of Batwoman and that Tuesday’s The Flash. After a month-long holiday break, it concludes with the Jan. 14 episode of Arrow and a special instalment of Legends of Tomorrow.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
