Doctor Who's Arthur Darvill Joins Arrow/Flash Spin-Off as DC Comics Superhero
Rory Williams will be time traveling once again, as Doctor Who's Arthur Darvill is joining the Arrow/Flash spin-off as the DC Comics time-bending superhero, Rip Hunter.

The spin-off is turning into quite the mash-up, as Darvill joins Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Brandon Routh as Atom, Robbie Amell as Ciara Renee as Hawkgirl, Victor Garber as Dr. Martin Stein, and Dominic Purcell as Heat Wave. Caity Lotz has joined the cast as well, although it's unclear whether she'll reprise her role as Black Canary or play another character, and there's still one main role to be cast.

The name of the character hasn't been released, but the casting description reads, "An African-American male in his twenties will fill the role of a regular, street smart guy who unexpectedly gains powers, and then, as part of the team, regularly quips about the insanity of the situations." So there's no insight into what his powers will be, and therefore no way to guess who he might be, but at least there's assurance that there will be some diversity in the cast.

The as-yet-untitled Arrow/Flash spin-off is set to air on The CW in the 2015-2016 midseason.
