CW’s Arrow Spinoff for The Atom to Also Feature “Three Major DC Comics Characters”


Let the speculation begin. Officially, the Ray Palmer-centric pilot will include as regulars Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold, Victor Garber’s Dr. Stein, and Caity Lotz as…Zombie Black Canary? Nobody’s sure on that last one. But the bigger news is what they’re not officially telling us yet. Nellie Andreeva at Deadline writes:

Additionally, in a tidbit that should get fans fired up, I have learned the new project will include three major DC Comics characters who have never appeared in a TV series.

I presume that rules out characters who’ve been on Smallville, so Aquaman and Hawkman are out. Green Lantern, maybe? Or, given budgetary limits, a pre-GL Kyle Rayner or Guy Gardner? What’s your bet?
