Arrow and The Flash are getting a spinoff called DC's Legends of Tomorrow which will involve "heroes and villains joining forces to save the planet and time itself, led by time-traveler Rip Hunter".  The cast is a mix of characters from both shows - The Atom and the former Black Canary from Arrow and Firestorm (or at least the Dr. Stein half), Captain Cold, and Heat Wave from The Flash.

Definitely looking forward to this, will be interesting to see how they integrate with the other 2 shows.  Odd that Robbie Amell (other half of Firestorm) wasn't included.  Also not sure it was confirmed if Caity Lotz would be explicitly playing Black Canary again.  Maybe an alternate timeline Canary?

Rip Hunter... It would be easy enough to pull Sarah from before she died and Stein from before the particle accelerator explosion, that way still stay in the same timeline.

Although in fFlash, they did hint at alternate times. So who knows.


Edited to say: With time travel and alternate timelines all bets are off.... This group can wind up on Gotham or bring back Constantine as players in this, or even Supergirl on CBS. I suppose they can use the show to introduce other characters for othe spinoff.

The characters from Legends of Tomorrow will appear in The Flash season finale, so it looks like that will be the launching point of the series.

Here's the first trailer.  It looks great, but unfortunately the show won't debut until midseason frown

OMG this looks so awesome, I'm so excited!!!!  I love super teams smile

So happy to see Caity Lotz back, I hope she gets to hook up with her hot Asian girlfriend.  Also like the new white outfit.

Love love love Wentworth Miller, and even better with his Prison Break brother.  Hope he gets a nice boyfriend.  Looks like they dumped his sister though, for whatever reason.

HAWKGIRL, w00t!  No idea how they'll explain her (wasn't she an alien or something in the comics or am I imagining it?  I'm not really a big DC guy), but who cares.

And Brandon Routh as Ant Man, I mean Atom - SWEET!

Plus that main guy is pretty cute too.

Only disappointment for me is no Robbie Amell, but looks like he might end up on Flash?

How do they have bad guys on the team? Don't they get in the way doing bad guy things?

I suspect they might use the Flashpoint story where Cold's sister is murdered, making him go hero for a while, becoming Citizen Cold. This would explain why she's not shown.

Budget Iron Man + Ant-man is an interesting combo. But I'm glad to see him separate from Arrow/Flash, since I kind of like the character, but knew that he wouldn't be enough to carry his own solo show.

Kind of glad they went for this level of silliness. At the same time, the rationalizing hero stupidity the writers for both Flash and Arrow did towards the ends of their seasons went to an all time high. To the level of the worst comic book writers, only saved by their actor portrayals. I'm not sure I can handle an entire B cast.

Also totally called Sara getting revived by the pit. I suppose that helps alleviate one of my major peeves about Arrow's story, with Oliver working with Merlin after he literally murders Sara in cold blood. If they can play it as Merlin maneuvering him into getting access to the Lazarus pit to bring her back, then Arrow acting so stupidly the entire season is slightly more tolerable.

I guess the same goes for Captain Cold on the latest Flash.
