Earlier this month, CW officially unveiled their new spinoff series DC's Legends of Tomorrow, which features characters from both Arrow and The Flash coming together to stop a new threat. There is still much we don't know about the show at this time, which is set to debut in January 2016, but it was also confirmed earlier this month that Caity Lotz, who played Black Canary on Arrow before she was killed off, has been resurrected as the White Canary in this show. The latest episode of the web series DC All Access features several interviews with many of the main cast members, including Caity Lotz, who had this to say about how her character fits in to the story line.
"She's going to be very interesting because of her circumstances and her back story. She definitely is going to have dealt with some things that no one else has."
There are two main characters who are brand new additions that didn't originally debut on Arrow and The Flash, such as Franz Drameh's Jay Jackson and Ciarra Renee's Hawkgirl. There has been plenty of speculation that Franz Drameh's Jay Jackson is actually Cyborg, a character who will be played by Ray Fisher in the DC movie universe. When asked if his character will have any powers, or any "metal on his body," the actor wouldn't confirm or deny that Jay Jackson is Cyborg.
"We'll have to... when the show comes out, everyone will see."
Ciarra Renee also spoke about her Hawkgirl character, revealing that DC's Legends of Tomorrow will tell her origin story.
"I think what we're kind of looking to do is to meld some of the story lines that Hawkgirl has had over the years together, so yeah, it will be interesting. This is her origin, I guess."
One of the interesting dynamics of the show is that it brings heroic characters and villains together, with one such enemy being Wentworth Miller's Captain Cold. The actor revealed that just by being around all these "good guys" could change Captain Cold for the better.
"I think there is something in Captain Cold's latent moral code that, now that he's forced to interact with these good guys, may start to take shape in a new and unexpected way."
Many fans were confused when Victor Garber's Dr. Martin Stein, one half of Firestorm, was confirmed as one of the main cast members, but his other half, Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) was not revealed as part of the main cast. Victor Garber revealed that Ronnie Raymond will be 'around' when DC's Legends of Tomorrow debuts next year.
"Oh, he'll be around. He'll be there."
The series centers on time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), who, having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, 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? We'll find out when DC's Legends of Tomorrow debuts in January 2016, but, for now, take a look at video interviews with the cast below.
