The CW's newest expansion to The Flash/Arrow universe is getting two new cast members. Joining Brandon Routh's Atom and Caity Lotz as a resurrected Black Canary (maybe!?), are Hawkgirl and Rip Hunter.

Hunter, who will simply be known as 'The Traveler', is a time traveling adventurer on a secret mission. Played by Timey-Wimey Doctor Who veteran, Arthur Darvill. Hunter is described as

a Han Solo-esque rogue who gets by with his charm... 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.
Hawkgirl will be played by Broadway performer, Ciara Renée. The question remains on what origin they'll choose for the series. Will Renée play a character with the reincarnated soul of generations of Hawkgirls, or will The CW choose to go the New 52 route and make her a science experiment?

Based on a series from DC Comic's Vertigo imprint, iZombie will follow the re-animated corpse of med student, Olivia Moore as she feeds on brains to retain her humanity and simultaneously gain psychic imprints to track down murderers. If there's one thing Seattle's known for, it's murder.

iZombie will be joining both Arrow and The Flash on The CW. Hopefully with that track record, it'll do better than Vertigo's last TV adaptation, Constantine. We'll find out on March 17.

Here's another rumored Superhero show to add to the mix, the X-Men may be coming to television. Apparently, Fox is already dead set on bringing the license to TV, but with no official announcement, there are no details. We know that X-Men: Apocalypse will be focusing on the First Class cast, maybe the show will center itself around the modern day students of Xavier's School For Gifted Youngsters.

What do you think? Is this too many superhero shows? Personally, I still can't get over Mutant X.
