Back in July, it was revealed that former Superman Brandon Routh had joined the cast of “Arrow” as Ray Palmer, who comics fans know as none other than the superhero The Atom. Though simply because the character joined the series, that wasn’t an indicator that he would be suiting up down the line, but now it seems like a real possibility.
Routh took to Twitter yesterday to reveal the image below with the caption, “All in a days work #RayPalmer #Arrow.” The image shows off Routh having a face mold taken, which we can only assume is for his new super suit for an upcoming episode. Unfortunately, Routh likely won’t don the costume until “Arrow” returns in 2015 as the series is currently filming their eleventh episode for Season Three which is almost certainly part of the back half, but check back here for a full reveal of Routh as The Atom in the coming weeks!
“Arrow” airs Wednesdays at 8 P.M. on The CW.
