A few months after being announced, the upcoming "Arrow"/"Flash" spinoff series finally has a working title -- and it may hint at which one of the show's many established characters will take the lead. As revealed over on Spoiler TV, the show's working title is "The Atom," which indicates that the new series will prominently feature Brandon Routh's armored-up hero.
Routh debuted as scientist Ray Palmer in "Arrow's" season three premiere and has since had a recurring role in the show, appearing in fourteen episodes so far. The character will soon make the jump over to "The Flash" in the episode titled "All-Star Team Up." Of the new show's assembled cast, which also includes former "Prison Break" star Wentworth Miller and "Mad Men" supporting player Caity Lotz, Routh has arguably the highest profile after playing the Man of Steel in the 2006 film "Superman Return."
In addition to Routh, "The Atom" will star Miller as Captain Cold and Lotz as Canary. Additionally, "Flash" actors Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein) and Dominic Purcell (Heat Wave) will star in the series, alongside newcomers Ciara Renee (Hawkgirl) and Arthur Darvill (Rip Hunter). "Flash" and "Arrow" EPs Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim are at the helm of the project, along with Sarah Schechter of Berlanti Productions.
