Superman Returns star Brandon Routh is going to take on another DC superhero.
TV Line reports that Routh will play DC hero Ray Palmer, aka Atom, in the upcoming third season of Arrow. The character is an atomic physicist who discovers how to shrink himself down to subatomic size and alter his own molecular density, which gives him superhuman strength and other powers. On the show, he’ll reportedly have an unexpected impact on the life of Oliver Queen, but we’ll have to wait to find out exactly what that means.
The third season of Arrow will premiere on Wednesday, October 8, a day after the premiere of its spin-off The Flash.
