With Brandon Routh returning to the role of Superman for the upcoming “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover on The CW, it’s reasonable to wonder whether we might hear the familiar “Superman” theme created by John Williams, which was used for the film “Superman Returns”.
Unfortunately, Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim has revealed via his Twitter account that they are unable to use that piece of music.
I’ve been told we can’t. ??

Guggenheim didn’t expand on the reasons why they’re unable to use the theme, but it should be noted that Williams’s score was recently heard in episodes of “Krypton” on Syfy.
