Brandon Routh has finally stepped back in Superman’s tights, with The CW releasing the first image of one of its three Men of Steel from its upcoming “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event.Routh previously portrayed the DC Comics hero in the 2006 film “Superman Returns.” However, as you can see below, the version Routh will play on the crossover is different. It’s based on the “Kingdom Come” version of Superman that starred in a four-issue series DC published under its Elsewords imprint. It’s set in the year 2020 and follows an older Man of Steel.Jordon Nuttall/The CWRouth will be joined by fellow Supermen Tyler Hoechlin, who plays the Superman that had shown up in the “Arrowverse” so far, as well as Tom Welling reprising his version of Clark Kent from “Smallville.” Also Read: 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' Crossover Adds 'Black Lightning' and Bruce WayneRouth already plays a character in the CW universe, starring on “Legends of Tomorrow” as Ray Palmer aka The Atom, which he will play in the crossover as well. “Crisis on Infinite Earths” has an ever-growing roster of past and present DC Comics superheroes.

It will span five hours across all five “Arrowverse” shows, including newcomer “Batwoman,” and carry over the midseason break. The crossover begins Dec. 8 with “Supergirl.” That will be followed by “Batwoman” and “The Flash” on Dec. 9 and 10, respectively. “Crisis on Infinite Earths” will wrap up on Jan. 14 with “Arrow” and “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” going back-to-back.Also Read: 'Arrow' Producers Say Final Season Will Be One Long Set Up to CW's 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' CrossoverCreated by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, “Crisis on Infinite Earths” was a best-selling 12-issue series running from 1985 to 1986 that replaced the DC multiverse, which since 1961’s “The Flash of Two Worlds” had explained the company’s varying and contradictory continuities, with a single streamlined universe and a complete reboot of most DC characters. It was a critical hit and a best-seller for DC and is credited with popularizing the idea of large-scale crossovers in comics.In the series, The Anti-Monitor, the evil counterpart of The Monitor (played by LaMonica Garrett in the “Arrowverse”), attempts to destroy all of the different universes with the goal of becoming the sole ruler of whatever is left. He’s eventually foiled but at a staggering cost: The surviving five universes are merged into one, and a huge number of classic DC characters are killed off, seemingly for good — including both Supergirl and Barry Allen/The Flash.Read original story ‘Crisis on Infinite Earths': CW Reveals First-Look at Brandon Routh’s Superman At TheWrap

Matthew Vaughn has opened up about what he would have done with Man Of Steel 2, the blockbuster that he was previously in negotiations to direct, but which he has since moved on from.
The makers of 'Shazam!' dispute reports of the astronomical cost of the supersuit and talk about how they nailed the design.
A standard denial might have been a more orthodox response to the news that Henry Cavill is – reportedly – quitting the role of Superman.
Cavill discusses his enthusiasm for James Bond with Yahoo Movies UK as well as the intense stunts he performed in 'Fallout,' why he'd love to do a rom-com and what he really thinks of movie reviews.
Henry Cavill discusses Justice League and future of his Superman with Yahoo during the press tour for Mission: Impossible 6.
The actor champions his hero during an interview recorded before the original director left the production.
Poor Justice League. Not only might it lose as much as $100 million at the box office, now people are openly laughing at it.
Sure, there's probably some friendly rivalry between the DC Comics superheroes and their compadres over at Marvel, but this is a bit much.
Sitcom's tie-in contest for tickets to the DC movie premiere potentially gives away a surprise plot development.
