Brandon Routh dons a Kingdom Come-inspired Superman costume in a new concept design for a potential HBO Max series focusing on the Man of Steel.
Many were excited to see Brandon Routh reprise his Superman Returns role in the Kindom Come suit for The CW’s Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event. Now, fans are desperate for the actor to return once again in a Superman series on the WarnerMedia streaming service HBO Max. In addition to the original DC Universe shows moving over to the streaming service, HBO Max will also feature a Green Lantern Corps series along with spin-offs for both The Batman and The Suicide Squad.
The Last Son of Krypton is also getting a new television series with Superman and Lois, but that one is headed to The CW. As HBO Max continues to add new DC content, like Wonder Woman 1984, perhaps the adventures of Brandon Routh’s Superman could continue on the platform. The suit Brandon Routh wore in Crisis on Infinite Earths was heavily inspired by Alex Ross’ Kingdom Come, and now a new concept from digital artist Dalton Barrett tweaks the suit with a little modern flare that also draws from his Superman Returns suit. You can see the HBO Max Superman concept below.
