Arthur Darvill To Play DC’s Rip Hunter

Arthur Darvill, best known for his roles in British smash hits “Doctor Who” and “Broadchurch,” is in final negotiations to join the cast of the untitled “Arrow”/”Flash” spinoff series.

Darvill will play The Traveler, a cocksure and roguish time traveler who hides the strains of being responsible for history itself behind a facade of charm and wit. He is based on the DC character Rip Hunter.

There was speculation that character could be Booster Gold, turns out rather it is Booster’s son from the comics.

Daryl joins a cast that includes Brandon Routh as The Atom, Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Heatwave, Victor Garber as Prof. Martin Stein and more.

Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim and Andrew Kreisberg are writing and executive producing with the show slated to premiere mid-season.
