DC Entertainment and The CW Network recently revealed the costume that will be worn by Brandon Routh who plays Ray Palmer on their exciting television show “Arrow”. I think that most comics fans who watch this show knew that the minute we heard that civilian identity that an appearance of The Atom could not be far behind and here is the costume that we are going to see.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Personally speaking this looks more like what I felt X-O Manowar would look like had they put him into a live action series of some kind but outside of that I do NOT hate it. Clearly they are doing this as an armor and A.T.O.M. actually means something that I cannot recall at this time. Since the character that Routh portrays on “Arrow” is a bit of a hard headed sort, one can only hope that he has a bit of a rough education once he shrinks down to size in this armored suit and learns that the clothes do not always a hero make. It is what you have within that helps you claim victory over your foes. Closing up I will say that in some sense this “Arrow” series is slowing down for me and I am much more engaged by the happenings in “The Flash” and the sadly suffering “Constantine” that airs on NBC. What do you readers think? Let me know in the comments section below.
Hey there my fellow geeks, this is just a quick reminder that tonight’s episode of “The Flash” will pit him against Arrow on The CW. It will continue with tomorrow’s episode of “Arrow” so set your DVR’s for both if you are enjoying these shows.
Fans all seem to know the details on how Bruce Wayne became Batman, The Dark Knight that looms over Gotham City’s underworld and can probably recite them to you if asked at any point in the day, but what of the city of darkness that pulsed around him? This new show airing on Fox is entitled simply “Gotham” and it aims to give comics fans some insight on the beginnings of the caped crusader’s eventually protected city and the devious villains who lurk in its shadows. Check out the poster and premise below.
Once most famously known for being a terrific Superman in a horrible film (“Superman Returns” if you didn’t see it); earlier today it was announced that Brandon Routh will join the cast of The CW Networks hit action show “Arrow” as Ray Palmer. Of course comics fans know him more by the image below 🙂
As its been previously reported, DC Comics’ own “The Flash” who in real life goes by the name Barry Allen is getting his own solo series after being introduced on the action packed CW Network series “Arrow”. The show stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen/The Flash and I will get more into the cast when the show debuts on its announcement post.
The trailer was released earlier today and it looks pretty good even though they took some obvious liberties with the origin and his overall reason for choosing to become a hero. I am sure that we shall see lots of villains from his famous Rogues Gallery and as any reader of the comic book will attest, The Flash had some really wild adversaries.
What do you think of the clip? Did you like what you saw? Chime in on this post and lets discuss.
