Meet The Daily Planet's new editor-in-chief.
In a new behind-the-scenes photo from "Crisis on Infinite Earths," Brandon Routh becomes Clark Kent once again. However, Routh's version of the character is no longer a mere reporter: he is the paper's new editor-in-chief.
Routh won't be the only Superman character in the crossover. Tom Welling and Erica Durance will reprise their Smallville roles for the massive crossover event as well. Tyler Hoechlin and Elizabeth Tulloch will also appear as Superman and Lois Lane, reprising their roles from last year's Arrowverse crossover.
In addition to his role as Kingdom Come Superman, Routh will also reprise his DC's Legends of Tomorrow role as Ray Palmer, aka the Atom. He will be joined by Osric Chau as Ryan Choi, who will become the new Atom in the crossover. Since Routh is exiting Legends of Tomorrow with Courtney Ford in Season 5, this could set Choi up to take over his predecessor's spot on the team.
"Crisis on Infinite Earths" begins Sunday, December 8 at 8 pm ET/PT on Supergirl, then continues in Batwoman on Monday, December 9 at 8 pm ET/PT and in The Flash on Tuesday, December 10 at 8 pm ET/PT. After the winter hiatus, the crossover will conclude on Tuesday, January 14 in Arrow at 8 pm ET/PT and in DC's Legends of Tomorrow at 9 pm ET/PT.
