It’s a bird; it’s a plane, it’s Brandon Routh’s Superman! Fans are wanting more of Routh’s Superman, and they may soon get it!
Crisis on Infinite Earths had Routh don the cape once more, and fans absolutely loved it. Now, Instagram user ‘
Yesterday, he shared information on Instagram that tell of a possible Superman-series featuring Brandon Routh as the titular character.
Since then, a YouTuber (Pagey) has also made a video sharing the information, believing it to be true. In the video, Pagey explains that the source is reliable and that a show featuring Routh as Superman is more than possible. Pagey has devoted his channel to all-things related to DC, focusing heavily on DC-TV content.
Brandon Routh has also played Ray Palmer/The Atom in the Arrowverse, with him as a lead in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. However, as of October 26, 2019, Routh confirmed his departure from the show.
HBO Max or The CW?
The timing of it all seems too conspicuous with Crisis on Infinite Earths, and Routh not currently working. However, a limited-series with The CW Network seems unlikely as it’s not the fashion of CW to do a limited-series. In saying that, it would be the perfect opportunity for HBO to add another series for fans to look forward to with HBO Max.
The limited-series could potentially lead to plans/ideas that were planned for the Superman Returns sequel. Villains like Brainiac or even Bizarro could take the spotlight, instead of the usual Lex Luthor.
It appears that DC TV/film media are finally embracing the idea of a shared multiverse, instead of separating everything. Perhaps a series with Brandon Routh could even lead to an appearance in the DCEU.
