DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” will be returning for season 3 in October and it should be an interesting season for Ray Palmer, aka The Atom. It’s already been confirmed that Brandon Routh’s real life wife Courtney Ford will be joining the cast as Damien Darhk’s daughter, and we’re also going to be meeting Ray Palmer’s mother at some point. But one thing we won’t be seeing in season 3 is a new Atom suit.
During a panel at Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in New York this weekend, Brandon Routh was asked if The Atom suit will be changing in season 3, and he noted that it won’t be changing, but it will be providing an ability to the rest of the team.
“An ability that The Atom suit has done before that is made into a smaller and more portable version will be used quite a bit in the early part of the season by other teammates. So that’s kind of fun. But the suit will largely stay the same as of right now.”
The Atom suit has several different abilities, so one can’t help but wonder which ability Brandon Routh is talking about. In any case, the good news is that it sounds like the suit will be giving the other Legends a boost that will likely come in handy in season 3.

DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” will return for season 3 on Tuesday, October 10.
After the defeat of Eobard Thawne and his equally nefarious Legion of Doom, the Legends face a new threat created by their actions at the end of last season. In revisiting a moment in time that they had already participated in, they have essentially fractured the timeline and created anachronisms – a scattering of people, animals, and objects all across time! Our team must find a way to return all the anachronisms to their original timelines before the time stream falls apart. But before our Legends can jump back into action, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and his newly established Time Bureau call their methods into question.
With the Time Bureau effectively the new sheriffs in town, the Legends disband – until Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell) discovers one of them in the middle of his well-deserved vacation in Aruba. Seeing this as an opportunity to continue their time traveling heroics, Sara (Caity Lotz) wastes no time in getting the Legends back together. We reunite with billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), the unconventional historian-turned-superhero Nick Heywood (Nick Zano), and Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm.
Once reunited, the Legends will challenge the Time Bureau’s authority over the timeline and insist that however messy their methods may be, some problems are beyond the Bureau’s capabilities. Some problems can only be fixed by Legends.
