New Arrow-verse Spinoff Has a Really Weird Character Lineup

It’s true that rumors of another Arrow-verse show have been bubbling up for a few weeks now but it has just been reported that the CW is developing a new spinoff featuring several recurring characters from both Arrow and The Flash along with “three major DC Characters who haven’t appeared on TV before.” What is weird is who they have attached for it.

Brandon Routh (The Atom)
Wentworth Miller (Captain Cold)
Victor Garbor (Half of Firestorm)
And Caity Lotz (The Canary who’s sorta Dead)

(I just died typing “Half of Firestorm”)
So yeah, weird team. Not sure what to make of it yet, but this is fueling my belief that The CW wants one DC comics TV show on every night.

Episode 26 – Incompetence, Not Malice

On this installment of the podcast, we discuss the DashCon fiasco, the Awesome Con conundrum, and the hopes of the Nezumi Con Indiegogo campaign.

We also talk about the changes coming to Marvel comics with different characters taking up the helms of Thor and Captain America, Arrowverse casting, Harmony Gold not being awful for once, Homestar Runner coming back from the dead, and the expansion of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.

It’s exciting.

Brandon Routh to be Arrow’s Atom

It’s no secret that we here at Nerd & Tie are very appreciative of Brandon Routh’s performance in “Superman Returns” in the wake of “Man of Steel.” We’re fond of saying that Routh’s still relevant, and we honestly mean it.

Well, it looks like Brandon Routh is going to get another turn as a DC superhero – this time on the small screen. TV Line reports that Routh has been cast as superhero “The Atom” in the next season of the CW’s Arrow.

For those unaware, the Atom’s powers primarily are that he can manipulate his size and the size of other objects. The Atom is not a character who has gotten a lot of live-action appearances, so the very fact that he is showing up in this next season of Arrow is kind of neat.

And it’s Brandon Routh.

So it’s exciting.

I’m excited at least.
