Brandon Routh’s Kingdom Come Superman is coming to this year’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, and new fan art gives him a look inspired by the Bryan Singer film.
Before taking on the role of Atom in the Arrowverse, Brandon Routh was predominantly known for playing Superman in the Bryan Singer quasi-sequel of the Christopher Reeves films. Over the weekend at San Diego Comic Con, it was announced that Brandon Routh will be returning to the Superman role for the Crisis on Infinite Earths. In the highly anticipated crossover event, Brandon Routh will appear as a Kingdom Come Superman.
No image of Brandon Routh suited up as Superman was revealed at the panel, however, a digital artist has imagined Brandon Routh’s Crisis on Infinite Earth‘s costume, which takes cues from Superman Returns. You can check out the awesome art below:

Written by Mark Waid and Alex Ross, Kingdom Come was a four-issue series published under DC’s Elseworlds imprint. Set in the year 2020, Kingdom Come follows an older Man of Steel as he attempts to rein in a new generation of reckless vigilantes and inspire them to adopt the ideals of past superheroes.
The upcoming crossover event has been teased since the very first episode of Grant Gustin’s The Flash, where a newspaper headline from the year 2024 revealed the Barry Allen’s fate was to disappear during a “crisis.” But the fifth season finale of The Flash accelerated this when the original newspaper headline changed the date of the event from 2024 to 2019. To add to this, the seventh season finale of Arrow set up Oliver Queen’s role in the next crossover by having him join the Monitor on a mission to warn other worlds of the crisis, as part of the arrangement Oliver made in order to save the lives of both The Flash and Supergirl.
Crisis on Infinite Earths will air in the Fall on The CW.
