A casting call for The CW's forthcoming Arrow/The Flash spinoff series has emerged, and TVLine shared the three "mystery" heroes previously announced as part of the project.

Well, mostly. They've got the casting calls, which of course in a project this sensitive don't actually name the characters. But still there are some hints I have some speculations about this that i think can be:

“THE TRAVELER” | A Han Solo-esque rogue who gets by with his charm, this hero hails from the future, and has journeyed back in time on a secret mission. His razor-sharp wit hides the pain of a man who has lived through serious conflict. He also harbors many secrets, always leaving both his teammates and the audience unsure of his true allegiances. (This could be either booster gold or Rip hunter according to As both have Razor sharp wits and Are not what they seem like.

“FEMALE WARRIOR” | This 20 something Latina is pretty but unassuming, book smart and socially awkward by day. But by night, when she hears the cry of battle, her fury is ignited and she becomes a fierce warrior — so much so, that sometimes she can become a threat to others.

“MYSTERY HERO” | 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. The other pair -- whom TVL identifies as likely Fury or Wildcat II and Static or Black Lightning -- read slightly less obvious and really could be any number of characters. I think this could be Black Lightning as there were also some talks with some actor in the past about this and also would explain his metahuman powers. Probably the most puzzling part of the whole thing is the Mystery Hero, who TVLine seems pretty locked in as having electrical powers. Also appearing will be Firestorm, The Atom and Canary.

Honestly I have no idea who the Female could be so just gonna leave it there. Dc's TV future looks brighter than Iron man's suit. Having said that speculations are good but confusing sometimes and exciting, we will have to see what the future holds.
