Brandon Routh has shared a new photo featuring the Superman Returns actor alongside fellow Superman star Tyler Hoechlin (Supergirl) behind-the-scenes for the upcoming Arrowverse crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths.
On his Instagram post, Routh said: “Grateful to share the #Arrowverse as #Superman for a short time with the charming & gracious [Tyler Hoechlin]! I never really thought I’d get to meet #Superman in person… Gotta say, it’s all it’s cracked up to be!”
Crisis on Infinite Earths will kick off on December 8 in Supergirl. Part 2 will hit Batwoman on December 9, before The Flash takes part 3 on December 10. Then on January 14, 2020, Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will wrap up the crossover.
The cast for the crossover will consist of characters from Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Batwoman, and even some characters from Black Lightning, making their debut in the Arrow-verse. In addition to Routh as Superman, other cast members include Tyler Hoechlin as Superman, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor, Osric Chau as Ryan Choi/The Atom, LaMonica Garrett as both The Monitor and The Anti-Monitor, Tom Cavanagh as Pariah, John Wesley Shipp appearing in an unnamed role, Ashley Scott from the short lived Birds of Prey series returning as Huntress, with Burt Ward in an unspecified role, and Kevin Conroy appearing as a version of Bruce Wayne from the future (his first time playing the character in live-action).
