A lot are excited for The CW’s crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths since it’s going to bring back a lot of other non-CW heroes like Brandon Routh’s Superman and Kevin Conroy’s Bruce Wayne. With Routh’s Superman said to be the Kingdom Come version of the character, Kingdom Come artist Alex Ross has shared this image of what Christopher Reeve’s Superman would have looked like.

Check it out:

Though Reeve died in 2004, he would have been 67 years old if he was asked to come back as Superman today. Of course, he still wouldn’t have been able to play a physically imposing Superman given his injury from the '90s which left him paralyzed. If anything, it’s nice to see what could have been.

Besides the return of Routh’s Superman and Conroy finally playing a live-action Bruce Wayne, the event is also said to have a return of Burt Ward, who played Robin in the Adam West version of Batman. Though nothing has been confirmed, a lot of people are also hoping for guest appearances from Lynda Carter (Wonder Woman), Tom Welling (Smallville), and Michael Rosenbaum (Smallville).

Is it too much to ask for Will Friedle to play Terry McGinnis alongside Conroy’s Bruce Wayne?

Crisis on Infinite Earths will start with Supergirl on Dec. 8, and continue with Batwoman (Dec. 9) and The Flash (Dec. 10). The whole event ends on Jan. 14 with Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
