The CW certainly loves to do crossovers with its DC properties, which has produced some of its series’ most memorable episodes. Now that there are five Arrowverse shows airing on the network — The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Legends of Tomorrow, and the new Batwoman — the crossover is going to be bigger than ever. How big? So big, it’s going to take two different actors to play Superman! Interestingly, the two actors both have experience playing the Man of Steel. Tyler Hoechlin has had a recurring role as Superman on Supergirl. And Brandon Routh, who now stars as Ray Palmer/The Atom on Legends of Tomorrow, played Clark Kent and Superman in the 2006 film Superman Returns. Now that Routh will be putting on the cape and tights again, we asked him what it felt like to step into that iconic costume for the first time. (Click on the media bar below to hear Brandon Routh)
The five-part Arrowverse crossover will begin this December and conclude next January on The CW.
