Supernatural star Osric Chau has been confirmed as the new Atom Ryan Choi in the upcoming Arrowverse crossover.
TV Insider has confirmed that Supernatural alum Osric Chau will be taking over the mantle of Atom as Ryan Choi, who is a physics professor at Ivy Town University. In the Arrowverse crossover, Osric Chau’s Ryan Choi will discover that he plays an important role in the crisis on infinite earths. While being a professor is cool, fans recognize Ryan Choi for his other profession: Atom. Osric Chau’s Ryan Choi is best known as Ray Palmer’s successor, who is played by Brandon Routh in the Arrowverse.
It makes perfect sense for Supernatural’s Osric Chau to join the Arrowverse cast and take over the mantle as Atom considering Brandon Routh will be exiting Legends of Tomorrow in the coming season. Brandon Routh will instead be reprising his Superman role, which means that the Arrowverse will desperately need another Atom. At this moment, details are scarce regarding how large his role is in the crossover series, but it’s a safe bet to imagine that Supernatural’s Osric Chau will be sticking around the Arrowverse for quite a while.
Osric Chau is best known for his work in Supernatural as Prophet Kevin Tran. His work on the fantasy heavy Supernatural makes him the perfect contender for Ryan Choi. Ryan Choi first appeared in DCU: Brave New World #1 and he is the third character to take on the mantle of Atom.
