In a move likely to blow up faster than Ronnie and Dr. Stein (sorry), the CW is apparently working on a new spinoff series featuring fan-favorite characters from Arrow and The Flash. According to Deadline, the new series will star Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Victor Garber as Dr. Stein, Brandon Routh as the Atom, and Caity Lotz, who played the first Black Canary. Given her character's fate, it's unclear who Lotz will be portraying. The show will also supposedly feature three major DC characters who have not yet appeared in a TV series and is expected to premeire as early as next midseason.
Would you be interested in watching this Flash/Arrow spinoff?
"[I]f we can get a dance sequence in there on top of it, I would love to do that. Listening to Joe as the lounge singer, singing, and to see Grant and he was karaoke-ing first season, and even watching Danielle, not being able to sing ... I'm just really excited, to be honest, to see how it all comes together," showrunner Todd Helbing said during an interview with IGN. "I know Greg [Berlanti] is very close to this story. He's been thinking about it -- I don't know how long, probably not just yesterday, you know what I'm saying? He's been percolating. Seeing Jesse sing, seeing Grant sing, it's just one of those -- like whoa, we can totally pull this off. I don't know why we wouldn't do this. Let's go for it. This year in general we're really swinging for the fences."
The Flash Season 3 will premiere Tuesday, October 4 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW, and Supergirl on Monday, October 10 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on The CW.
Last week, it was all but confirmed that Michael B. Jordan would be joining the cast for The Fantastic Four reboot as The Human Torch. Now, he's been talking to Zack Snyder, director of Man of Steel, to cross the comic divide and join the DC universe as a 'recurring character' beginning with 2016's Man of Steel 2/Batman vs Superman.
This casting choice is a rumor at best, but the knowledge that Snyder is casting yet another recurring role has perked up some ears, and speculation is flying. Since Jordan is black, most are assuming that he'd be in talks for John Stewart's turn as Green Lantern, or the mechanized hero Cyborg. But this is the modern era, where actors of color are beginning to up for any superhero role, so younger roles, like Robin or The Flash could fit the bill as well. I guess we'll just have to wait until 2016.
