The CW series Arrow has been planting seeds for months, and now we finally have our first look at Brandon Routh rocking his full Atom suit in all its sci-fi glory.
The network has released the photo below showing Routh as Ray Palmer sporting his full Atom suit of armor. He’s expected to don the costume first in the upcoming Feb. 25 episode of Arrow. Until then, geek the heck out over this pic.
It looks extremely cool, especially for CW budget standards. It’s also very reminiscent of the Ant-Man suit Marvel is introducing in its upcoming tentpole film, but it includes some nice nods to the original Atom design from the comics (look closely at the helmet). But really, this is an entirely new look. It’s much more of a sci-fi design than the more traditional superhero suit from the comics, which we’d argue is a better fit for the Arrow-verse.
We can’t wait to see this suit in action. Oh, and don’t forget — Ray Palmer and Felicity Smoak will also be heading over to The Flash soon for a crossover, where they’ll apparently be getting some help on nailing down the above suit.
So, what do you think of the design? Is this the Atom you've been waiting for?
