In this DC Round-Up, there are Ray Palmer tidbits from Arrow, additional episodes for The Flash, and a network for Supergirl.
According to ComicBook.Com, Brandon Routh dropped some hints about Ray Palmer’s costume as the Atom on Arrow during a recent radio interview.
“It’s a totally different suit and I haven’t been in it yet, I’ve only seen drawings,” Routh told the hosts when pressed for details on his Arrow role. “It’s a very different character and I reallyc an’t say too much about what the suit’s going to look like — just that it’s very different and I don’t believe it has a cape, which doesn’t really surprise anybody if you’ve seen The Atom in the comics. But it’s a cool opportunity…”
Asked when he would get to put the suit on, Routh said he didn’t know, but that it isn’t in the first six episodes, which have already been filmed.
Continuing on the topic of Ray Palmer, Arrow Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg tweeted a picture of the Palmer Technologies logo with the caption “The Arrow stock ticker adds a new company! #Arrow”

Deadline reports that as a sign of confidence in their spin-off property, CW has ordered an additional three scripts from The Flash. The site states that giving any type of order to new broadcast series several weeks before its debut is unusual and comes after The Flash had delivered a couple of more episodes, with CW executives said to be very pleased with that they have seen.
According to TV Line, Supergirl is ready to fly for the Eye. CBS has given a series commitment to an hour-long drama about Kara Zor-El, the DC Comics heroine who escaped the planet Krypton amid its destruction. Having hid all this time on Earth the powers she shares with “her famous cousin” (as the official logline cheekily puts it), 24-year-old Kara decides to embrace her superhuman abilities and “be the hero she was meant to be.”
