Update! : It was revealed the following day – at Comic-Con – that Routh will be playing the ‘Kingdom Come’ version of Superman.
One of our favourite supermen is inheriting his ‘S’ again.
As reported yesterday, the upcoming Arrowverse crossover will see Brandon Routh – ‘Superman’ in “Superman Returns” (2006) – reprise the Man of Steel for ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths”, which kicks off in December
Speaking to Routh last night, the top question on the ‘must ask’ deck was “are you you reprising the same Superman from Superman Returns!”
“No, he’s not the same Superman (from the film)”, Routh tells Moviehole. “He’s a different version.. but there are some similarities.”
Routh plays Ray Palmer on The CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow”. We can only assume it’s Palmer who dons the Superman suit on an alternative Earth. Guess we’ll find out..
