Fresh of the heels of a number of other casting announcements for The CW's "Arrow," TVLine has learned that former Superman Brandon Routh has been cast in the role of Ray Palmer aka The Atom for the upcoming third season of the series. The site reports that Palmer will serve as a love interest for Felicity Smoak as well as become the new head of Queen Consolidated. A previous report on casting also teased that we'll be seeing Palmer suit up as "a tech-powered superhero." Might we be seeing Routh riding an arrow as the microscopic version of himself? Sound off with your thoughts below.

Capable of shrinking to subatomic sizes, Ray Palmer was introduced in 1961 by Julius Schwartz, Gardner Fox and Gil Kane. A member of the Justice League and Teen Titans at one point, The Atom and Green Arrow actually share an adversary in Deathstroke (played by Manu Bennett in "Arrow").

"Arrow" airs Wednesdays at 8 P.M. ET/PT on The CW with the new season set to premiere on October 8.
