In the latest casting news for the Crisis on Infinite Earths Crossover event, The CW has cast Supernatural veteran Osric Chau as Ryan Choi, the new ‘ATOM‘! This is significant as Brandon Routh is wrapping up his run as the current ‘Atom’ on Legends of Tomorrow this season. My money is on Osric Chau taking on the suite for next year. What do you think about this casting move? Let us know AFTER THE JUMP. The Crisis on Infinite Earths Crossover airs on The CW this fall!
Insider has learned exclusively that Osric Chau has been cast the
recurring role of Ryan Choi for this winter’s Crisis on Infinite Earths
crossover between Arrow, The Flash, Batwoman, Supergirl and DC’s Legends
Described as “physics professor at Ivy Town University,” Ryan is “a normal guy who learns that he has a pivotal role to play in the coming crisis on infinite earths.” Of course, comic-book fans recognize the name Ryan Choi as the teen genius who assumed the mantle of The Atom and joined the Justice League after Ray Palmer vanished into the microverse during DC Comics’ Rebirth storyline.
The character has also appeared as The Atom in Batman: The Brave and the Bold, as well as several DCU animated movies, the Injustice 2 video game, and reportedly, the Zack Snyder cut of the Justice League film.
