SUPERMAN RETURNS Star Brandon Routh To Play Atom Alter Ego Ray Palmer On 14 Episodes Of The CW’s ARROW!!
Brandon Routh, the George Lazenby of Warner’s Superman motion picture franchise, will be filling a smaller role in the DC TV universe.
On 14 episodes of The CW’s “Arrow,” Routh will play inventor-scientist Ray Palmer, the new owner of Queen Consolidated.
In the DC comic books Palmer is an Ivy University professor whose secret identity is The Atom, a superhero who can shrink himself so small that he cannot be detected by the most powerful microscope.
Palmer was introduced in October 1961’s DC Showcase #34, just a few months before Marvel and Stan Lee introduced shrinking superhero Hank “Ant-Man” Pym in January 1962’s Tales To Astonish #27.
