There is little doubt that the upcoming Arrowverse crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths is going to be a huge one considering that Brandon Routh will be playing both Ray Palmer and Superman. Not surprisingly, even Elseworlds artist Alex Ross is loving the idea and has come up with an amazing illustration depicting the Legends of Tomorrow star as Kingdom Come Superman.
Ross famously illustrated DC's Kingdom Come comic book miniseries which saw Superman leaving the superhero life after Lois Lane is killed by the Joker. His depiction of the Man of Steel has a certain look that fits perfectly in his new illustration of Routh shared on Twitter. Check it out below.
Routh had previously confirmed at San Diego Comic-Con that he will portray Kingdom Come Superman in Crisis on Infinite Earths. Although he had previously played Kal-El in the 2006 film Superman Returns, Routh admitted that he was uncertain about reprising the role but ultimately felt that he needed to do so.
"It's an opportunity for me to kind of say hello and goodbye to the character in a way I didn't get to the first time. Being a young individual of 24, 25, I thought, 'Oh, I'm going to do this for years and make multiple movies.' And that, of course, didn't happen. I'm just very honored to be able to do this one last time," he told Entertainment Weekly.
Crisis on Infinite Earths will be spread over five Arrowverse episodes that will air between December to January on The CW.
