Arrow Spoilers: New Character Details Revealed, What Will Ray Palmer Really Be Like?

We already know that Superman himself, Brandon Routh is joining the cast of The CW’s Arrow. Now we know what he will be doing.

The show’s executive producer, Marc Guggenheim, recently spoke to TVLine and offered deeper insight about Routh’s character on the show, Ray Palmer.

“He has exceeded everyone’s wildest expectations. And what’s fun about the way Brandon interacts with everyone is we wanted someone who would offer a bit of what Grant Gustin did — someone who’s a little more on Felicity’s end of the spectrum in terms of color, and at the same time is very different from Grant,” Guggenheim said. “And Brandon, he’s just this change agent that shakes up everybody. He’s not what he initially appears to be.”
