Don’t worry folks Superman hasn’t been recast; but Brandon Routh is set to make a comeback to the world of DC in the 3rd season of Arrow.
Routh has bagged the role of Ray Palmer aka The Atom historically in the comics.
An unparalleled scientist and inventor, Palmer will take charge of Queen Consolidated, with noted special interest in the Applied Sciences Division.
I personally didn’t have a problem with his Clark Kent portrayal, it was more the overall Superman Returns experience that really flattered to deceive.
Casting news seems to be coming thick and fast for Arrow at the moment, with this another great indication of the depth of characters they can dig out for heroes and villains for Season 3 and beyond.
Arrow Season 3 premieres on the CW on 8th October.
