Brandon Routh Reveals Why He Returned to the Arrowverse After His DC's Legends of Tomorrow Exit

DC's Legends of Tomorrow fans were stunned when series stars Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford both exited the Arrowverse series, and it was an exit that wasn't exactly easy for Routh either. The actor has been honest that both he and real-life wife Ford didn't want to exit The CW series. However, the goodbye has ended up not being entirely permanent. Routh returned as Ray Palmer/The Atom both for Legends' 100th episode last fall and appeared in The Flash's "Armageddon" event as well. Now, Routh is opening up about why he and Ford chose to return, and it comes down to the fans.

Legends Of Tomorrow’s Brandon Routh Explains Why He Returned To The Arrowverse For The Show’s 100th Episode

Underdog Arrowverse series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow aired its 100th episode late last year, and it included plenty of familiar faces that used to be a part of the misfit group of heroes. Among them was Brandon Routh, who portrayed Ray Palmer a.k.a. The Atom in Arrow before shifting to the spin-off series. The actor left the show in Season 5, and although it wasn’t on good terms, he still returned for the 100th episode and he recently explained why.

Brandon Routh Has Looked Into a Kingdom Come Superman Series

After the disappointment of 2006's Superman Returns, Brandon Routh assumed he would never get to play the Man of Steel again. That opportunity arose in The CW's "Crisis on Infinite Earths" event, where Routh played an iteration of his character whose background had taken a dark turn. Influenced by the hit 1997 comic Kingdom Come, the story revealed that The Joker had murdered almost everyone at the Daily Planet in a gas attack, including Lois Lane, and Superman had been forced to live with that tragedy. Unlike in the comics, he didn't retire, and rather than its black background field being a symbol of mourning, in this version Superman explains that the Kingdom Come Superman logo represents that "Even in the darkest times, hope cuts through. Hope is the light that leads us out of darkness."

'The Flash': Brandon Routh on Returning to the Superhero World in Season 8 Premiere (Exclusive)

Brandon Routh didn't think a return as Ray Palmer, aka Atom, would happen on The Flash, let alone as the kick-off to a five-part "Armageddon" crossover event. Routh left DC's Legends of Tomorrow after five seasons in 2020, mainly due to creative reasons to wrap up his character's storyline. So when the call came this summer that The Flash was interested in welcoming him back into the fold in a crucial way, Routh was more than game to explore what Ray's been up to since he left the Waverider and began a new life with Nora Dahrk.

Brandon Routh Says "Armageddon" Will Explore Ray Palmer as a Mentor

Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) returns to The Flash in this week's episode to kick off the five-week "Armageddon" event. The story, which will also guest-star Cress Williams as Black Lightning, Javicia Leslie as Batwoman, Chyler Leigh as Alex Danvers, and Katherine McNamara as Mia Queen/Green Arrow, begins at a tech convention, where Palmer is there as part of his day job. Superheroing is something he has not been doing a lot of since leaving the Legends (Routh departed DC's Legends of Tomorrow two years ago), and both Ray and Routh seem pretty pleased to be getting back into it.
