TV Line has debuted 5 new photos from Arrow's Season 3 premiere episode, which give us our first look at Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer, who DC Comics fans know as the secret identity of The Atom. Take a look at Brandon Routh, who most famously made his debut in the DC Universe as Kal-El in the big screen outing Superman Returns. He's seen here with Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen and David Ramsey as Diggle.
Brandon Routh's Ray Palmer heads to Starling City as Queen Consolidated's new leader. He also carries secret plans for the company's Applied Sciences Division. The Atom has the ability to shrink both himself and the objects around him, so it's possible that Ray has landed at Queen Consolidated to start developing this technology. We'll have to wait for the Season 3 premiere, hitting the CW on October 8, to find out his true agenda.
