It looks like ‘The Flash’ is going to scale every wild possibility in DC shared universe, as after Keaton’s Batman, Brandon Routh, and his superman might also join the cast.
Everyone is now tired of waiting for Barry Allen’s (Ezra Miller) ‘The Flash‘. Fans have been expecting the first Flash movie in DCEU for almost half a decade now. The movie was expected to come out sometime back in 2016-17. But then it got shelved, god knows how many times, for various reasons. But, finally, it seems like we are getting ‘The Flash’ movie. Though it’s still far away with the expected release date to be in 2022. But, with the reveal of the first look at DC Fandom this year, it seems like things are finally moving, and moving for good. What is better is that we are getting two versions of Batman. And now, rumours suggest that we might also get the Brandon Routh version of Superman in ‘The Flash’.

Brandon Routh to return as Superman in ‘The Flash’?
Thanks to The CW’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths (Arrowverse)” crossover event, now DCEU can breathe in multiple universes. Now, as the DC comics multiverse exists in the live-action universe, DC is planning to introduce it in DCEU with ‘The Flash’. And what’s better than the storyline of “Flashpoint arc”? ‘The Flash’ is confirmed to be based on the Flashpoint arc comic storyline. And that means Flash, aka Barry Allen, will be messing around with alternate dimensions. This will allow the movie and DCEU to bring in various versions of their fan-favourite superheroes.
While many of them have been already announced to be a part of ‘The Flash’, the presence of Superman played by Brandon Routh is still a rumour. But what are the possibilities of him joining the DCEU-MV?
Did Brandon Routh just tease his return in DCEU?
No role carries the amount of potential and fame that the role of Superman carries for an actor. One of the most well-known and loved superheroes, Superman has always given deserving actors the role of a lifetime.
For Christopher Reeve, and then Henry Cavill with ‘Man of Steel’, the role of Superman changed the way fans received them. However, Brandon Routh has been the one unlucky actor who was loved as Superman in ‘Superman Returns’ (2006) and yet could not continue the journey of superhero fame. However, the credit once again goes to The CW’s “Crisis on Infinite Earths (Arrowverse)”, which brought back Brandon Routh as Superman from (Earth-96). This has hyped up the possibilities of Brandon Routh making a comeback as Superman in the DCEU’s ‘The Flash’.
Recently, a fan tweeted an art poster with Brandon Routh’s Superman alongside Keaton’s Batman for ‘The Flash’. The fan wrote: “I’d love to @BrandonJRouth in ‘The Flash’! Is it too much to ask for Henry Cavill too?” And, surprisingly enough, Routh retweeted the art with the caption “It’s a fun image”.
Now, this might have been just another fun image, if not for the already heated rumours of Brandon Routh joining ‘The Flash’ cast as Superman. This has forced the fans into believing that Routh might carry on his journey as Superman through DC-MV now.

Multiple Batmans and multiple Supermans?
What can be more exciting than watching Batman and Superman together in one frame? Well, watching more than one Batman and Superman in one frame, together. We know that ‘The Flash’ will follow the multiverse concept and will feature various versions of DC’s superheroes. It’s already been reported that Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck will both be a part of ‘The Flash’ with the two versions of Batman. The appearance of Superman still remains unconfirmed. But if Brandon Routh returns as Superman in ‘The Flash’, we can expect Henry Cavill’s Superman to appear alongside him as well.
Henry Cavill is currently ‘the’ Superman of DCEU. There have been tons of speculations about him exiting the franchise. But his presence in Zack Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ as Superman, and the rumours of a ‘Man of Steel’ sequel has muted any speculations for the moment.
‘The Flash’ is going to bring Christmas for the fans with multiple avatars of their favourite superheroes, and that might include Brandon Routh as Superman. Who else, according to you, might be a part of ‘The Flash’s’ multiverse storyline?
