Brandon Routh has posted a picture of himself and Tyler Hoechlin in their respective Superman costumes from the set of CW's "Crisis On Infinite Earths" Arrowverse TV crossover, which brings together multple versions of DC characters from across different media.
In the crossover, Routh portrays a version of Superman who wears the character's darker Kingdom Come costume, while Hoechlin resumes his role as Superman from CW's Supergirl. Routh first portrayed Superman in the 2006 film Superman Returns, although it remains to be confirmed if he's officially reprising that role for the crossover.
