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.
More pictures are being released from behind the scenes filming of this years annual Arrowverse crossover. We recently saw Tyler Hoechlin as Superman in his black suit and now we have our first full looks at Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin in each others respective suits.
Check out the new Scarlet Speedster and Emerald Archer in the pictures below.
We have already been told that during this years Arrowverse crossover in December we will be getting the debut of Ruby Rose as Batwoman, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane and Arrow star Stephen Amell’s wife Cassandra Jean Amell will make her debut as Nora Fries the future Mrs Freeze. Along with that we will see the return of Tyler Hoechlin as the Man of Steel.
A photo from behind the scenes of the filming the crossover shows us Hoechlin in the black superman suit standing with Grant Gustin and Stephen Amell. The photo was taken and posted on the Green Arrow’s himself twitter.
A big question is what are the circumstances that put Kal-El in the different suit. Only time will tell.
