Tyler Hoechlin Excited To Take On Brandon Routh Superman For Crisis On Infinite Earths


Crisis On Infinite Earths is shaping up to be a crossover of epic proportions as it happens to feature not only Tyler Hoechlin back as the Man of Steel from Supergirl but also Brandon Routh will be donning the cape and boots once again as the Kingdom Come Superman.

While attending the recent Fan Expo Canada 2019, Tyler Hoechlin was asked how he feels about Crisis On Infinite Earths and playing opposite the Brandon Routh version of Superman.

“We’re going back to Vancouver for crossovers, for Crisis On Infinite Earths. Very excited about that. It’s going to be fun. That’s kind of the next thing on the agenda,” Hoechlin said.

Regarding the Brandon Routh Superman, Hoechlin is asked his thoughts and if they should be friends or foes.

“Very excited. Very excited. I can’t wait to see what these guys come up with,” Hoechlin said. “They gave me some great stuff to play with last year doing the two Superman thing [on Elseworlds]. So now that we have another person donning the suit, it’s going to be great. I don’t have to do double duty. I can play against somebody. So it’s going to be fun. I’m excited to see if we’re friends or foes. I have no idea.”

Hoechlin continued with mention that he hasn’t heard anything about Crisis On Infinite Earths just yet (check out Stephen Amell’s reaction here).

“Nothing. I’ve not seen anything. And I am not kidding. I’m serious. I’ve seen nothing. So I promise I’m not just keeping spoilers from you,” he said. “It’s a crossover so we can say both [friend and foe]. It’s Infinite Earths. I think there are no rules for the most part.”
