Deadline reports Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh will both suit up as Superman in the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover.

The CW’s upcoming Arrowverse crossover will adapt the classic Crisis on Infinite Earths storyline, which centered on several DC Comics heroes from various universes as they attempted to thwart the Anti-Monitor’s efforts the destroy the Multiverse. Among the many cast members to be featured in the Arrowverse adaptation of Crisis Infinite Earths are Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh, who will both reprise their roles as Superman for the multi-night event.

News of Tyler Hoechlin and Brandon Routh’s return for Crisis on Infinite Earths is expected to be announced at San Diego Comic-Con, though Deadline reports the actors will portray Superman in different time frames. Of course, Brandon Routh portrayed the iconic hero in Bryan Singer’s Superman Returns while Tyler Hoechlin previously played the Man of Steel in multiple episodes of Supergirl and last year’s Elseworlds crossover.

Brandon Routh will also play his Legends of Tomorrow character, Ray Palmer/Atom, in the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. However, it is currently unclear which episode of the 5-part crossover will see Tyler Hoechline play Superman and which one will feature Brandon Routh in the role.

Crisis On Infinite Earths will span two quarters and consist of ArrowThe FlashSupergirlLegends of Tomorrow, and Batwoman. The crossover will launch with three episodes in December before concluding with two additional episodes in January.
