Marc Guggenheim Confirms Christopher Reeve Superman In CRISIS ON INFINITE EARTHS As Brandon Routh's Character

It seems that the connection into DC's mythos goes even further than expected in CW's upcoming crossover. How much more do you think we could see in the upcoming DC epic?

Among the many upcoming highlights of CW's epic Crisis On Infinite Earths crossover series is that Brandon Routh would be taking up the role of the Kingdom Come version of Superman. What has now become clear however, is not just that Brandon Routh is reprising the role of Superman, but he his in fact playing the same version of Superman as Routh's big screen Superman in Superman Returns, the rebootquel to Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie and Superman II.


There had been some speculation about this previously, when it was revealed that Brandon Routh's Clark Kent would be wearing a similar outfit to the one Routh wore as Kent in Superman Returns. This would also make Routh's character the first confirmed character from a DC film to appear in the crossover, though some reported set photos indicate that there may be a visit to the Tim Burton Batman universe during the crossover as well. With reports ranging from the FOX/Netflix Lucifer show to the DC Universe service's version of the Titans rumored to have some involvement in the crossover, the stage seems set for Crisis on Infinite Earths to be DC TV's most ambitious crossover yet.
