Brandon Routh approached Crisis on Infinite Earths as if it’s the last time he’ll play Superman, but will he play the role again after that?
In an interview with Den Of Geek, Brandon Routh explained that he was grateful to play Superman once again for the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover, he isn’t sure if he’ll get the opportunity to do so after this. Therefore, he approached Crisis on Infinite Earths as if it were a swan song for his tenure as Superman, but he remains open to the idea of returning to the role if another opportunity arises.
You can read Brandon Routh’s comments about the Superman role below:
“I approached [Crisis on Infinite Earths] as if it was the final time. It was important for me… Because if I continued to leave the door open and keep wanting more, then I was never going to be fulfilled, and that wasn’t a place where I wanted to leave things. So I approached this as, no matter how much screen time I had or whatever story this ends up being, I’m grateful to have this opportunity and I’m going to be okay with whatever this is. That’s how I approached it. Just being grateful for the opportunity… I feel that the door that was open, the unresolved stuff after Superman Returns, is resolved and the door is closed, but if the door opened again, I’m open to it. I’m good, I’m at peace with it, but I am still excited to play the character if another opportunity that is right presents itself.”
Brandon Routh’s return as Superman was one of the most highly-anticipated elements about Crisis on Infinite Earths prior to release, and that sentiment has carried over into the show itself. One can only hope that he’ll keep getting to play the character, or at least that he will be able to wrap things up on a high note when the crossover ends.
Crisis on Infinite Earths has been teased since the very first episode of 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 Grant Gustin series 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 Stephen Amell’s 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 the Emerald Archer 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 has aired three episodes in December before concluding with two additional episodes in January. Stay tuned for the latest news on Marc Guggenheim and Crisis on Infinite Earths.
