According to Deadline, The CW has officially ordered the Arrow / The Flash spinoff, that’s officially called Legends of Tomorrow to series. Legends of Tomorrow a team up series which will include members of The Flash and Arrow, cast along with new characters. Here is the official description:
DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW
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,” “Alias”); Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” “Superman Returns”); Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”); Caity Lotz (“Arrow”); Ciarra Renee (“Pippin”); Franz Drameh (“Edge of Tomorrow”); with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”); and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”). Based on the characters from DC Comics, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”), Marc Guggenheim (“Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13″) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”).
What’s interesting is that it looks like Rip Hunter is the one who will catapult the events and with him being a time traveler could had been the one to save Sara Lance before her death.
Also the description about an immortal, the recent Alpha and Omega symbol leads me to wonder if we will see Darkseid? Maybe Vandal Savage also, as he’s an immortal, doubt it’s Ra’s Al Ghul is the in question.
This makes the second official pick up for a DC TV television show, with a third being Lucifer as an almost for sure thing.
