We now have our first look at Brandon Routh is suited up as Kingdom Come Superman from 1996 in this first-look photo from The CW. Routh who starred in SUPERMAN RETURNS (2006) is back in the cape once again as a greying older version of the Man of Steel for The CW’s upcoming CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover event.
The different iteration of the symbol on his chest is that of the the compromised, world-weary version introduced in the landmark DC Comics saga KINGDOM COME . Routh will portray both Clark Kent and Superman along with still portraying Ray Palmer/The Atom on DC’s LEGENDS OF TOMORROW in the annual CW Arrowverse crossover event.
Routh won’t be the only one flying up in the skies like a bird, like a plane, SMALLVILLE star Tom Welling as well as Tyler Hoechlin, who has been the Superman for the Arrowverse shows on The CW since being introduced in SUPERGIRL.
