Supernatural’s Osric Chau joins Crisis crossover as the new Atom
Entertainment Weekly reports that the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover has just gotten a small addition, with Supernatural’s Osric Chau set to appear as none other than Ryan Choi, the new version of The Atom. Much like the comics, Chau’s character will pick up the mantle from Brandon Routh’s Ray Palmer, who will be departing the main cast of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and is currently only confirmed to appear in the crossover as an older Superman.
The Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover will begin with Supergirl on Sunday, December 8, followed by Batwoman on Monday, December 9, The Flash on Tuesday, December 10, Arrow on Tuesday, January 14 (after the winter hiatus), and will conclude with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow that same night.
The cast for the crossover will consist of characters from Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, Batwoman, and even some characters from Black Lightning, making their debut in the Arrow-verse. In addition, Brandon Routh will appear as Superman (a version inspired by the Kingdom Come version of the hero). Other cast members include Tyler Hoechlin as Superman, Elizabeth Tulloch as Lois Lane, Jon Cryer as Lex Luthor, LaMonica Garrett as both The Monitor and The Anti-Monitor, Tom Cavanagh as Pariah, John Wesley Shipp appearing in an unnamed role, Ashley Scott from the short lived Birds of Prey series returning as Huntress, with Burt Ward in an unspecified role, and Kevin Conroy appearing as a version of Bruce Wayne from the future (his first time playing the character in live-action.
