The Arrowverse's mega-crossover event, Crisis On Infinite Earths is almost here. The event will feature stars from all across the DC Superhero landscape, including Brandon Routh's return to playing Superman.
In an interview with TV Guide, several stars from the crossover event revealed their reactions to Routh's Superman.
Arrow's David Ramsey said, "Seeing him in the Superman outfit was just —everybody gasped." He explained, "Brandon looked like a Greek God. He looked like 6'6" or 6'7", muscles everywhere, a little gray in his hair. It was just perfect. And he just had this thing about him. His hands were always on his hips. He was golden era Superman... You think about Superman and if you say the words super man — he looked like a super man... Your eyes just couldn't get off of Brandon."
The Flash's Carlos Valdes said, "It was really fun watching Brandon Routh just like flip over and change over from Ray Palmer to being essentially Super-Brandon —that's what we've been calling him." He added that it meant a lot to Brandon and the fans to see him tackle the role of The Man of Steel again after 2006's Superman Returns.
The Flash's Hartley Sawyer offered his input, saying, "That was one of the coolest things that I've ever gotten to do in my life, just seeing [Brandon Routh] walk out in the costume. Like, 'Holy Toledo! That's that guy, that's him."
Sawyer also claimed, "Brandon has a deep, deep understanding of what Superman really represents and what that character is really about, and to see somebody who plays that character so well and then to learn the understanding that he has and the thought that he's put into it? That was really cool. I kind of just bowed down before him because it was like, 'Man, not only are you so good at this, but you get it. You completely get it!'"
"Crisis on Infinite Earths" begins Sunday, Dec. 8 on Supergirl, then continues in Batwoman on Monday, Dec. 9, and then picks up in The Flash on Tuesday, Dec. 10. After a winter hiatus, the crossover concludes on Tuesday, Jan. 14 on both Arrow and DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
