Smallville star Tom Welling puts on Brandon Routh’s Superman suit from the Arrowverse in an impressive new piece of fan art.
The next dramatic Arrowverse crossover will take several versions of Superman to stop the Anti-Monitor. Luckily, Tom Welling’s Superman from Smallville is making an appearance in the five-part event. Fans are still debating whether Tom Welling’s Superman will end up donning the iconic costume, since he only briefly wore the suit at the end of Smallville‘s tenth season.
A new piece of fan art from Instagram user “nerdwithopinions” shows Tom Welling’s Superman wearing an edited version of the Arrowverse suit worn by Brandon Routh. While Brandon Routh’s Superman suit has the striking Kingdom Come black and red emblem, the fan art pictures Tom Welling in the classic red and yellow. It makes sense that Tom Welling should get to wear a Superman suit at least once during the Arrowverse crossover, even if just for a single episode. Take a look at the fan art of Tom Welling’s Superman wearing Brandon Routh’s Arrowverse suit below.
Are you hoping to see Tom Welling don a Superman suit in the Arrowverse crossover? If he does, do you think it’ll be similar to Brandon Routh’s Superman costume? Tell us in the comments!
The Arrowverse 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.” 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 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 DC Comics hero 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.
Stay tuned for the latest news on Tom Welling, Brandon Routh, Superman and the next Arrowverse crossover event.
