The CW’s “Arrow” has become the birthing stone of shows for different kinds of possible superhero spinoffs.

According to Variety’s report, the first official photo of Routh sporting his A. T. O. M. suit is in a light of his upcoming appearance on the show for the 15th episode of the ongoing third season entitled “Nanda Parbat.” This episode will be shown on Feb. 25, 2015.
“Arrow” executive producer Marc Guggenheim explained more about Routh’s upcoming role as Ray Palmer.
“Ray’s the first technology-based hero that we’ve done. Our heroes, on ‘Arrow’ at least, tend to be very sort of fisticuff-oriented. Ray is trying something brand new, also brand new for us too. He’s creating what we call the Super Suit, the ATOM suit that is really at the cutting edge of technology, both in the real world and on the show. He’s also going to have to discover that a super suit does not a hero make. Part of the thing that we’re always trying to be true to is putting on a costume is the easy part. It’s being the hero that’s the really difficult part and one does not mean you’ve accomplished the other,” Guggenheim said in the published interview at Variety.
Exciting things are well underway for Routh’s character in the series. He will also be making a crossover appearance in the “Arrow” spinoff “The Flash,” together with Emily Bett Rickards (Felicity Smoak). Barry will be going through a tumultuous time and he asks for Felicity’s help. Meanwhile, Ray Palmer will be coming along and meeting the rest of the STAR LAB gang, with whom he’ll feel very comfortable with given his playful and geeky nature. This episode will take place in “The Flash’s” 18th episode, according to the show’s executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.
Catch new episodes of “Arrow” every Wednesdays at 8 p.m. and “The Flash” on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
