A Former Superman Will Play The Atom in \’Arrow\’


The Atom DC Comics

DC’s version of Ant Man is coming to Arrow

With the arrival of The Flash in the Arrow universe, it seems like there will be more meta-humans interacting with Ollie and the crew in season three. A relatively big DC hero will be joining the show, and he’ll be played by someone with some experience in the DC universe.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Brandon Routh is joining the Arrow cast in season three as a recurring character. Routh will be playing Ray Palmer, who DC fans know as The Atom. The character is sort of DC’s version of Ant Man in that he’s able to shrink down to subatomic size.

The Atom is the latest DC character to be confirmed for season three after it was announced that Devon Aoki will be playing Katana in the new season.
