The CW has ordered the Arrow/Flash series Legends of Tomorrow to series, and an official synopsis has been released.
Likely beginning mid-season, this is the show that will combine characters from both series into a team-up style show:
When heroes alone are not enoughâ€¦ 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 â€“ 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? DCâ€™S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW stars Victor Garber (â€œThe Flash,â€ â€œAliasâ€); Brandon Routh (â€œArrow,â€ â€œSuperman Returnsâ€); Arthur Darvill (â€œDoctor Whoâ€); Caity Lotz (â€œArrowâ€); Ciarra Renee (â€œPippinâ€); Franz Drameh (â€œEdge of Tomorrowâ€); with Dominic Purcell (â€œThe Flash,â€ â€œPrison Breakâ€); and Wentworth Miller (â€œThe Flash,â€ â€œPrison Breakâ€). Based on the characters from DC Comics, DCâ€™S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (â€œThe Flash,â€ upcoming â€œPanâ€), Marc Guggenheim (â€œEli Stone,â€ â€œPercy Jackson: Sea of Monstersâ€), Andrew Kreisberg (â€œThe Flash,â€ â€œEli Stone,â€ â€œWarehouse 13â€³) and Sarah Schechter (â€œThe Flash,â€ upcoming â€œPanâ€).
The time travel element could explain how Caity Lotz’s Black Canary could show up in the series. If Rip Hunter went back in time and brought her to the future that’s how the character could live on. Also it’s interesting that only half of Firestorm, Victor Garber, is listed while Robbie Amell isn’t.
