An “Arrow/Flash Spinoff” is currently in development and the potential series has already announced some of its cast members as well as other details regarding the show. Read below for the details.

Greg Berlanti, the producer of “Arrow” and “The Flash” said that the concept of the show is something like the “Magnificent Seven” meets “Ocean’s Eleven” kind of this but thing one is loaded with superheroes. It will star “Arrow’s” Ray Palmer played by Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz who plays Sara Lane, “ The Flash’s” Dr. Martin Stein played by Victor Garber, Leonard Snart by Wentworth Miller.

He also revealed that there are going to be three new heroes in the spinoff.

This is what Berlanti said regarding the “Arrow/Flash Spinoff:”

“For us, first and foremost, with all of [our shows], it’s about ‘how is it its own thing?’ Because we don’t just want to do it to do it. Some people do that and then they’re three episodes in, thinking, ‘Why did we do this?’ So for me, I compare the shows to old Westerns; we have a lot of lone gunmen and sheriffs in town, and this one is very much an ode to things like ‘The Magnificent Seven’ or those great heist pics like ‘Ocean’s Eleven’ where you get all of those colors at the same time, and a true ensemble, and that was the fun of it…

In picking them, it was very much about picking ‘who are some of the most popular characters we’ve created?’ and also, tonally, who went with how? How disparate could we make it? and we’re also introducing these three new characters that we’re casting right now… I think it’s really important that we have another female hero on the show, and this one is really exciting. I can’t wait for people to find out – we just have to cast it right, as always. And then you want that Rat Pack-y kind of vibe of all this crew hanging out as disparate and as different as they are.”

Just recently, it has also been announced that Dominic Purcell (“The Flash”) will be joining the “Arrow/Flash Spinoff” as well and he will play the role of Heat Wave/Mike Rory.

Berlanti also revealed that they will also have their own major DC bad guy and it isn’t a character that they have already used.
