We’ve been discussing on both the Arrow and Flash webcasts for awhile the possibility of The Atom getting his own show, but none of us could have imagined that a spin-off would go this deep.  According to the news dropped in our laps this evening, it looks like not only will Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh, Arrow) be a part of this new show, but it’d also include Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold (Flash), Victor Garber’s Dr. Martin Stein (Flash) and the most shocking of all, Caity Lotz (Arrow) who of course plays Sara Lance.  Yeah, that Sara…the one who died at the beginning of this season.  We’re not clear on if she’d be playing the late Sara somehow (even the Lazarus Pit can’t bring her back now) or another character entirely.

This is all very early in development right so there’s much we don’t know, but Deadline reports go even further with the hint that we may see three new DC characters that have thus far never appeared on TV before!  We’ll post more about this when we get more information to share, but one thing seems clear: this is a great time to be a geek!
