Brandon Routh gets Kingdom Come Superman costume in an awesome new concept image ahead of this Fall’s upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths Arrowverse crossover.
Brandon Routh has been apart of the Arrowverse for quite some time as Ray Palmer/ The Atom. He began his Arrowverse career on Arrow and was quickly spun off into his own series with other DCTV misfits. Brandon Routh starred in Legends of Tomorrow since its inception, but as it was revealed last month his time is winding down as Brandon Routh will now be exiting as a series regular. During San Diego Comic-Con it was announced that the Arrowverse star will reprise his super role as Kingdom Come Superman in the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover.
Brandon Routh is known for his run as the Man of Steel in Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns, so it makes sense that during his swan song he’d get to return to that role. With Brandon Routh returning to his iconic Superman role as a version inspired by the comic Kingdom Come, a cool new concept design has been imagined to show us what he might look like ahead of the official reveal.

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 Superman as he attempts to rein in a new generation of reckless vigilantes and inspire them to adopt the ideals of past superheroes.
Crisis on Infinite Earths 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.” However, 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 span two quarters and consist of Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The Arrowverse crossover will launch with three episodes in December before concluding with two additional episodes in January.
