The CW network which already boasts two DC comics based heroes shows Arrow and The Flash are adding a third show of the genre to it’s roster with Flash/Arrow spin-off series Legends of Tomorrow.
Well known DC characters including Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), The Atom (Brandon Routh), Hawkgirl (Ciarra Renee) and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) will take part in the Legends of Tomorrow with an additional announcement of Arrow star Caity Lotz among the cast list, though no official word yet on just how she will fit into the series.
From the official synopsis: When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?
