Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford are both set to leave the DC show Legends Of Tomorrow sometime during the fifth season.

Routh joined the third season of Arrow as Ray Palmer and became the superhero Atom that year.  The character jumped over to Legends during the show’s pilot.

Ford, who is also Routh’s wife offscreen, portrays Nora Dark in the series.

The makers say this is a creative decision to wrap up their storyline, and the show’s team-up nature allows it to change the core cast regularly.

Producers, however, are leaving the door open for Ray and Nora to return for guest appearances.

The new season starts in January.
