TVLine is reporting that Brandon Routh will be appearing on the next season of Arrow as Ray Palmer.  Palmer, better known as the Atom to superhero fans, is a scientist who creates a special belt that allows him to shrink sizes that he uses to fight crime.  He eventually joins up with the Justice League and becomes a well-respected member and good friend to Hawkman.  According to TVLine, Palmer will be introduced as the new owner of Queen Consolidated and a love interest for Felicity Smoak.  Palmer will have a particular eye on Queen Consolidated's Applied Sciences Division, although his motives will be unclear.  

This isn't the first time that Palmer's name has been mentioned on the show.  In season one's "The Undertaking", Laurel mentioned that her and Oliver's college friends "Ray and Jean" had recently moved in together.  Last season, Ray's ex-wife in the comics, Jean Loring, appeared as Moira's attorney and was played by Teryl Rothery.  

Routh also isn't a stranger to live-action comic book adaptations.  Routh played Superman in the disappointing Superman Returns movie, and played one of Ramona's exes in Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World.
