This might be old news, but apparently the Arrow team originally asked for the Ted Kord Blue Beetle for season three, but they where turned down because DC said they had “other plans” for the character & suggested they use the Atom instead. Which (to put it mildly) is slightly annoying…

But I’ll forgive them as long as they don’t screw up his return in the comics.

I know, I know, faint hope…
