We know that there is an Arrow/Flash spin-off series in the works featuring Firestorm, The Atom, Captain Cold, and Canary, but who else might join this team?
According to TV Line, three other characters have been uncovered that will join Brandon Routh (The Atom), Calty Lotz (Canary), Wentworth Miller (Captain Cold), and Dr. Martin Stein (half of Firestorm). The site says the following are mystery characters, but I think from the character descriptions the list should be fairly narrow.
“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.
My guess is Rip Hunter, though a lot of people are already speculating Booster Gold. While I would like to see a Booster Gold/Blue Beetle series, the description above it seems too dark for Booster.
“FEMALE WARRIOR” | This 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.
I have no idea, though TV Line and others are pointing to Fury, an Amazon heroine empowered by the ancient Furies.
Then we have Mystery Hero… no, really…
“MYSTERY HERO” | 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.
Static Shock seems like the likely choice, but I don’t know what is going on with the Icon characters right now. Static Shock has appeared on television many times in animated form and is probably the most recognizable, but Black Lightning would be a much better choice for the street level hero.
With all the speculation that is about to take place regarding the characters and who they will portray, the bigger question is what the title of the show will be. Are we looking at a Justice League Detroit grouping?
