Yesterday, we reported that The CW Network will announce more details this spring regarding their highly-anticipated spinoff series featuring characters from both Arrow and The Flash. While the show's producers were on hand at PaleyFest in Los Angeles this weekend, Arrow star Stephen Amell attended Planet Comicon in Kansas City, where he revealed that the spinoff currently doesn't have a title. He also said that The CW's plan is to, "launch midseason next year," which means it will arrive sometime in early 2016.
The initial announcement from last month revealed that Arrow's Brandon Routh (Atom) and Caity Lotz (Black Canary) will star in the series with The Flash's Victor Garber (Firestorm) and Wentworth Miller (Captain Cold). The show will also feature three major DC Comics characters who have never been featured on a TV series before, identified in a casting breakdown as "The Traveler," "Female Warrior" and "Mystery Hero." There is speculation that The Traveler, could be either Booster Gold or Rip Hunter, but that has yet to be confirmed. The Female Warrior character could be Pantha, Wildcat or Tarantula, while the Mystery Hero is believed to be Static, Black Lightning or Vulcan.
"Without spoiling anything, I will say, I think the greatest moment in the history of the show will be the trailer that we show at Comic-Con this year. I really do, because after three seasons and 69 episodes, we are going to fundamentally change the show at the grassroots level. I think it's going to be cool."
He also teased that they are currently filming episodes that will change Oliver's relationship with David Ramsey's Diggle, while joking that it won't involve Diggle turning into another famous superhero.
"There are things happening in the episodes that we're filming right now that are going to alter Oliver and Diggle's relationship forever. No, it's not Diggle becoming Green Lantern."
Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim created the untitled spinoff series, although it isn't known when production may get started. Since the show features characters from both Arrow and The Flash, what do you think it should be called? Will it be set in Starling City, Central City or perhaps an undisclosed location? Hopefully we get the answers to all these questions soon, so stay tuned for more details.
