Word came not that long ago that The CW is developing a superhero team-up spin-off series which will include several characters from both “Arrow” and “The Flash” along with three DC Comics heroes who’ve never been adapted to the scene before.
Today, TV Line has a casting breakdown for those three new heroes and speculation as to which characters they actually might be as the current names are just placeholders:
“A Han Solo-esque rogue who gets by with his charm, this hero hails from the future, and has journeyed back in time on a secret mission. His razor-sharp wit hides the pain of a man who has lived through serious conflict. He also harbors many secrets, always leaving both his teammates and the audience unsure of his true allegiances.”
Possibilities: Rip Hunter, Booster Gold, Time Traveler
“This twenty something Latina is pretty but unassuming, book smart and socially awkward by day. But by night, when she hears the cry of battle, her fury is ignited and she becomes a fierce warrior – so much so, that sometimes she can become a threat to others”
Possibilities: Fury (Helena Kosmatos), Wildcat (Yolanda Montez), Pantha (Rosabelle Mendez), Tarantula (Catalina Marie Flores)
“An African-American male in his twenties will fill the role of a regular, street smart guy who unexpectedly gains powers, and then, as part of the team, regularly quips about the insanity of the situations”
Possibilties: Static (Virgil Ovid Hawkins), Black Lightning (Jefferson Pierce), Black Vulcan
Whomever is cast will join a line-up that is said to include Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/The ATOM, Victor Garber as Dr. Martin Stein/Firestorm, Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold and Caity Lotz as Sarah Lance/Canary.
