A couple weeks ago we reported that Brandon Routh's The Atom will lead an Arrow and The Flash spinoff team-up show also featuring Victor Garber, Caity Lotz and Wentworth Miller. That announcement hinted at "three major DC Comics characters who have never appeared in a TV series" joining the cast, and now we have a little more info, courtesy of TVLine.
The first thing that caught my eye in this report: Lotz is billed (by TVLine, at least) as "formerly Sara/Canary," which, if true, lays to rest our theories about a Lazarus Pit or cloning. I'd love Caity Lotz in any iteration, but I'd most love her as Sara Lance. Here's hoping TVLine doesn't know something we don't know.
Now, on to the casting descriptions for the three mystery characters. TVLine hazarded a few guesses as to the characters' DC identities, and you can read those guesses at the below link, but I trust you guys a lot more. Let me know in the comments whom you think will be joining The Atom, Victor Garber, Captain Cold and hopefully Black Canary on this weird, awesome team:
“THE TRAVELER” | Described as 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.
“FEMALE WARRIOR” | Arrow_Flash_Spinoff_FuryThis twentysomething 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.
“MYSTERY HERO” | Arr0w_Flash_Spinoff-StaticAn 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.
