Get ready for the new daily show

Brandon Routh talks about his role in DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow

May 17th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Firstly, if you haven’t seen the trailer for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow yet you need to scroll to the bottom of the page right away and rectify that…



Ok, now that we’ve all seen and, yes, loved, the trailer it’s time to talk about the structure of the team.

Brandon Routh, who plays Ray Palmer/The ATOM and former Superman, has been talking about where he’ll be in the new series which picks up from Arrow and The Flash for a mid-season appearance early next year: “I think Ray will tend to be a little more of a leader of the team, having been a businessman and running Palmertech, being a billionaire, he knows how to bring people together and have them work as a team… he may have more to learn from the rest of them as far as [being a superhero] is concerned. But as far as bringing disparate people, very different people, together, Ray will be the one to really help gel them together as a team.”

We’re really excited to have Ray fronting the team and the new show because, as long-time fans of Routh (seriously, check out his work on Chuck) we reckon he’s got the wit, charm and presence to lead this team where they need to go… what about you?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
