First Look at Brandon Routh's Superman in Crisis

The Supermen are storming the CW's mega crossover event, "Crisis on Infinite Earths". Recently we shared a photo of Tom Welling, who has confirmed his return to his Clark Kent role, hanging out with co-star Erica Durance on set. Now, Entertainment Weekly is sharing a first look at Brandon Routh back in the boots and cape as Superman! His Superman will actually be based on a famous one-off comic book "Kingdom Come" where Clark abandons the work of a hero after the Joker kills Lois. It's at the behest of Batman and the world that Clark dons the cape again. Check out the first look below:

When asked about how Brandon felt about being back in the Superman suit, he had this to say:

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

Let us know what you think of the new suit in the comments below and in the forum! Keep us advertisement free and visit the support page!

It seems either the Crisis event or post Crisis merge would have been the best time to introduce the new Supergirl Super suit. I was a little surprise we get it early on.

I am so glad producers decided to go with Melissa's shorter with bangs haircut and not force the wigs. Berlanti shows are know for their horrendous wigs.

I think it's great that they are using stars and characters from past DC based shows to create the multiverse of characters. The comic had tons of characters. It would be Crisis without them. However, many will likely have only small cameos and many will likely perish as Earth 1, Earth 38 and a few others may survive to merge into the new Earth Prime.

I can't wait for confirmation of Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman and Helen Slater as Supergirl.

MayaSky, I so agree with you - I am also hoping that J'onn and Alex have a good part in this crossover as they are important to the current story line and to me :-)

For the record, I love Alex and J'onn and hope they have some time devoted to them as well!

I hope all these superheroes will not take the place of secondary heroes like Jonn, Brainiac, Nia and Alex.

Here's the thing about COIE, at least from this aging fan's perspective. It is not only a way to take these characters to new places, but it offers a unique opportunity to celebrate everything that got us to this point.

All the tv shows and movies that aired--even the ones that didn't necessarily find commercial success--helped keep the flame alive and paved the way for the successes of the Arrowverse. So if the event can honor those actors, some of whom were in a pretty thankless position, I'm cool with a little less time for some of the regular cast--in this one very special case.


I understand your way of seeing things. But given the importance of the story and the future fatal destiny for the old and current heroes. I wish the presence of Jonn and Alex.

Well, when you put it that way then I agree. It's a celebration for all, so let them take their bows. Except for the Arrow show which is horrible.
