Brandon Routh to once again play Superman in ‘Arrow’-Verse crossover

LOS ANGELES, July 20: Brandon Routh is returning to reprise his role as Clark Kent and his alter ego Superman in the The CW’s upcoming annual “Arrow”-verse crossover, “Crisis on Infinite Earths”.

This will be the first time Routh would play the role since the 2006 movie “Superman Returns”.

The actor currently features on CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow” as Ray Palmer/The Atom.

According to Deadline, Tyler Hoechlin, who has recurred on “Supergirl” as Superman, will also reprise his role in the crossover.

“Crisis on Infinite Earths” will bring together CW’s five DC Comics shows — “Arrow”, “The Flash”, “Supergirl”, “Legends of Tomorrow” and the latest “Batwoman”.

The crossover, which is based on a popular DC Comics miniseries (1985-86), will premiere in December. (PTI)
