Kingdom Come and Kingdom Came.
It’s been a few months since it was revealed that Brandon Routh would be appearing in CW’s upcoming crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths, as Superman. Obviously, he won’t be alone. Also joining him as the Man of Steel are Tom Welling and Tyler Hoechlin.
What separates Routh from the others is that he is portraying a different version of Superman. Alex Ross and Mark Waid’s Kingdom Come series gave us a really unique and older version of Superman. The costume is instantly recognizable thanks to the grey that runs through Superman’s hair and the unique “S” on the logo.
Here is a teaser that Brandon Routh shared on his social media:
So, are you ready to see what this new version of Superman will look like? Get ready. After 13 years since Routh last donned the iconic outfit, here is our first official look at the new ‘Kingdom Come’ Superman.
