It would be excellent to see the continuing adventures of Routh’s Superman in The Flash, perhaps not as a main or supporting role, but more as a fun cameo to see what the character has been up to since “Crisis.”
Speaking to Geek House Show, Brandon Routh addressed the possibility of his Superman making an appearance in The Flash movie.
The former Legends of Tomorrow star explains:
I mean, yeah, I think that’s always a possibility. Of course, they’re bringing in Michael Keaton, which I’m excited about, and some other people from the past DC projects. I think it’s very exciting.
Routh reflected on his time working on “Crisis on Infinite Earths” by adding:
It worked really well in “Crisis On Infinite Earths,” and I was extremely proud and honored to be a part of it and to reprise my Superman. So it’s absolutely a possibility – you can do anything!
Some might not know, but Superman Returns was meant to serve as a sequel to the first two Christopher Reeve Superman films. As such, Brandon Routh was intended to be Reeve’s version of the character. So if this take on Clark did appear in The Flash, it would mark the first big screen return to that universe since 2006.
