Everything is coming up Superman with this new image of both Brandon Routh and Tyler Hoechlin both suited up as the man of steel in this photo taken over the weekend. Routh will suit up as the KINGDOM COME version of Superman and Hoechlin is the current Arrowverse version.
Both are suiting up for the big CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover event this December on The CW. Tom Welling from SMALLVILLE is also set to appear as Clark Kent, it has not been confirmed if he also will have the “S” on his chest
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.
One question that has been repeatedly asked concerning the upcoming CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS crossover on The CW. Would Tom Welling from SMALLVILLE reprise his role as Clark Kent and maybe even suit up? Now we have an answer to one part and it is yes.
Welling is set to reprise his SMALLVILLE role as Clark Kent in the CW’s upcoming DC Arrowverse crossover. He will be joining two other actors who have played the Man of Steel, Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh that will both be suiting up as Kryptons last son..
This will be the first time that Welling will return to the role since the ending of SMALLVILLE. It is not known yet if he will done the symbol for HOPE on his chest.
