TV Line has gotten hold of possible character descriptions for the trio of heroes that will appear in the upcoming “Arrow” and “Flash” spinoff currently in development over at the CW. The threesome will star alongside Brandon Routh’s Atom, Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold, Victor Garber’s half of Firestorm and Caity Lotz’s possibly-not-quite-dead Canary. You can read the leaked character descriptions below.
“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” | 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.
“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.
Speculation has already begun regarding the DC identities of these characters. TV Line postulates that “the Traveler” could either be Rip Hunter or Booster Gold; the latter is certainly a strong possibilty considering that spinoff producer Andrew Kreisberg has been trying to get a Booster Gold series launched at Syfy for a while now. TV Line also guesses that “Female Warrior” could be Fury and “Mystery Hero” could be Static Shock, based on both interpretations of the descriptions given and the characters’ stated ethnicities. It’s worth noting, however, that the listed ethnicities could be different from the mystery characters’ comic book identities considering how often they’re changed for live action adaptations.
The “Arrow” executive producer team of Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim are currently developing this spinoff along with Sarah Schechter, an EP on “Supergirl,” in development at CBS.
