New artwork imagines Justice League star Henry Cavill with Brandon Routh’s Superman suit from the next Arrowverse crossover event.
Prior to reprising his role as Superman for The CW’s adaptation of the Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline, no one could’ve predicted that Brandon Routh would once again don the iconic cape and tights. At the moment, Justice League star Henry Cavill seems to be in the same situation Brandon Routh was in after Superman Returns. Recently, there have been rumors that Star Wars director J.J. Abrams is taking over the Superman franchise but none in regards to Henry Cavill’s involvement.
A new concept design shared on Instagram sees Henry Cavill return as Superman, wearing Brandon Routh’s Kingdom Come-inspired Superman suit. Henry Cavill’s Superman suits already have a resemblance to the Kingdom Come artwork by legendary comic book artist Alex Ross thanks to the darker background on his “S” symbol. It is also worth noting that Henry Cavil has mentioned Kingdom Come as one of his favorite Superman stories. You can check out the awesome fan art which imagines Henry Cavill back as the Last Son of Krypton with Brandon Routh’s Superman suit below!

Henry Cavill was last seen as Superman in Justice League. Here’s the official synopsis for the movie:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
