As we reported a few days ago, Brandon Routh, who starred as Superman in the 2006 film “Superman Returns,” will return as the Man of Steel once more for The CW’s upcoming “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event. In an interview with ET Online during San Diego Comic-Con, Brandon Routh spoke about how it feels to get to play Superman again.
“I am very grateful to have the opportunity to play four characters in the crossover,” Routh marveled. “Coming back to play Superman and Clark, alongside Tyler, who’s done a fantastic job on Supergirl, to have two Supermen on screen at the same time I think will be a lot of fun. And also, [we’ll] have Atom and Ray Palmer around for some fun, too.”
Routh, who played the heroic role in director Bryan Singer’s 2006 film, Superman Returns, joked that he’s “working on getting back into Superman [shape]” to play the part again. “You gotta be prepared for the photo shoot that might happen, and also to feel like the guy, inside.”
He couldn’t dish too much on the crossover, but the actor did admit that he’s had “very specific talks about [the cape].”
“There’s a certain regality to it,” he explained, prompting co-star Caity Lotz to jokingly demand, “I want a cape!”
