The first cast image has been released for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the new Arrow/The Flash spin-off show debuting on The CW during the 2015-16 season.
The spin-off will feature Arrow’s Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) aka A.T.O.M and The Flash characters Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) and Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber). Caity Lotz, who played Sara Lance aka Black Canary in Arrow, is also part of the cast and she will be playing White Canary.
The official synopsis for Legend’s of Tomorrow is:
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? DC’S Legends of Tomorrow stars Victor Garber (The Flash); Brandon Routh (Arrow); Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who); Caity Lotz (Arrow); Ciarra Renee (Pippin); Franz Drameh (Edge of Tomorrow); with Dominic Purcell (The Flash); and Wentworth Miller (The Flash).
Legends of Tomorrow is expected to debut in 2016 as one of The CW’s mid-season shows. It’s not clear at this point how much crossover the show will have with Arrow and The Flash, or whether or not the characters that have crossed over will still recur in the parent series.
