Doctor Who’s Arthur Darvill Joins Arrow x Flash Spinoff
The CW has confirmed that British actor Arthur Darvill, best known for his portrayals of Rev. Paul Coates in Broadchurch and Rory Williams in Doctor Who, will play DC Comics superhero Rip Hunter in the upcoming Arrow/Flash spinoff. Judging from the pictures above, it’s not a bad resemblance!
The character – who has not yet been explored on television – was the star of the DC comic book series Rip Hunter… Time Master between 1961 and 1965, meaning that this will be Darvill’s second foray into time-travel.
He will be joined by fellow new casting Ciara Renée, who has been confirmed to play Hawkgirl, as well as several existing actors from Arrow and The Flash, including Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heat Wave), and Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein).
With a line-up like that, we’ve got high hopes for the spinoff!
