Can the man who once played Superman fill the shoes of the Atom? From the looks of it, yes.
The first look at Brandon Routh's Atom outfit for The CW's Arrow is here -- and it's heavy. This costume has been teased both in the show and in interviews, but will be seen in action for the first time on February 25's Arrow episode, titled "Nanda Parbat."
Although the jury's still out on how fans will take to Routh's new superhero identity, response is said to be positive inside the hit show. So much that Arrow head honcho Greg Berlanti has been quoted that saying that "preliminary discussions" about a spin-off show for the Atom have happened.
