Brandon Routh Is Playing A Different Superhero On Arrow That's Not Superman

That guy from the sixth Superman movie, The Quest For Relevance, is set to appear as scientist Ray Palmer on the upcoming season of Arrow. The Wrap reported that Routh has signed on for a recurring role during the third season. In this universe, he's the new owner of Queen Consolidated.

Comic nerds alike know Palmer is the alter ego of the Atom who can change his size at will. Hopefully, they open up a rift in space and time using the Flash's speedforce where they can see Routh's version of Superman. Then the four team up for a few episodes only to have Routh Superman die of kryptonite exposure. 

Here's hoping we get some of that Scott Pilgrim vs The World Routh that we love so much.
