Last August, Legends executive producers Phil Klemmer, Grianne Godfree, and Keto Shimizu told Deadline about the sad news of Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford leaving in the show’s 5th Season, leaving a lot of fans crushed with the loss of the longtime staple from the Waverider. Reportedly, Routh and Courtney Ford will appear for one last time in Episode 7 of Season 5, called “Romeo vs Juliet: Dawn of Justness.”

Routh, having debuted in season 3 of Arrow, leapt into Legends of Tomorrow playing Ray Palmer, otherwise known as The Atom. Having starred as the Man of Steel in Superman Returns back in 2006, he also reprised that iconic role in The CW’s recent “Crisis on Infinite Earths” crossover event. Towards the end of last year, Routh issued a statement to Deadline about his exit from the Legend. He was found rooting for the rest of the cast, despite being bummed over his on-screen story come to a close.

Explaining why life on the Waverider isn’t meant to last forever and contending that it’s a place where “damaged souls” stay temporarily, Legends of Tomorrow showrunners Phil Klemmer and Keto Shimizu explained that the exit of Brandon Routh’s Ray Palmer and Courtney Ford’s Darhk was necessary to tell the story of two characters growing apart. 

 However, the fan’s can ease up their tensed muscles quite a bit because these favourites will be a part of the upcoming Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover. Routh, in fact, will even take on double-duty, playing Ray and the Kingdom Come iteration of Superman.
