Superman Christopher Reeve Likely For Crisis On Infinite Earths

The Superman Christopher Reeve theme by John Williams is confirmed for the upcoming Crisis On Infinite Earths mega-event crossover.

Producer Marc Guggenheim basically confirms they will be using the theme as he replied to a fan on Twitter who made mention that they wouldn't be using the Superman theme: "No spoilers but... a lot has changed since that tweet."

Will Christopher Reeve appear in Crisis?

Obviously "a lot has changed" means they will be using the John Williams Superman theme.

Regarding the inclusion of Christopher Reeve in Crisis On Infinite Earths, that is unknown, but what is interesting is that back in October of last year saw Jack O'Halloran, who played Non in the Donner movies, confirm that there is a plan to bring back Christopher Reeve as Superman in hologram form.

However, Marc Guggenheim has confirmed that Brandon Routh will be playing the same Superman from Superman Returns, which is the Christopher Reeve version, so what exactly happens remains to be seen:

Will we get a Christopher Reeve reference in Crisis or will you be going with the notion that Brandon is Reeve's Superman?

: Brandon IS Reeves’ Superman. :)

Superman Returns is supposed to be set in the same continuity as the Reeve movies, and Routh is now reprising his film Superman in Crisis, meaning that the Reeve character is in Crisis? Is that right?


In addition to Brandon Routh playing the Man of Steel in Crisis, Tyler Hoechlin reprises from Supergirl, and Tom Welling is back from Smallville.
