During a recent panel appearance at Fan Fest 2015, Arrow's Caity Lotz was asked about the future of her character and, as you'd expect, both addressed and attempted to avoid addressing the planned spinoff series in which she's been cast.
"Sara Lance definitely died in Episode 1 of Season 3 -- oh, spoiler alert! Sorry if you're not caught up," she joked. "And then...has anybody heard about the spinoff? So there is a new show in development and I'm so excited to finally be able to talk about this. The Atom, Firestorm, my character and, so I guess that is a big thing that's going on and everyone keeps asking me when they see on the Internet, 'Well, you're dead. How are you going to be in the new show? Is it just going to be flashbacks or are you playing a whole new character? Are you Sara Lance? I would love to tell you, btu I think they might kill me."
When the moderator suggested to her that nobody really stays dead in comics anyway, Lotz added, "How many times have I died already? Sara Lance has died, I think three times, so you never know."
And it is shaping up to look as though the new show might just feature a time-travelling team who jump around to preserve the important moments in the timeline. It might explain how Sara is still alive.
The series, which will reportedly star Brandon Routh, Victor Garber meaning the show will definitely be getting some super-powered teammates.
The series will also star three new superhero characters yet to be cast. Here’s the descriptions of the rest of the cast members that have just been released:
“THE TRAVELER” | Described as 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.”
“FEMALE WARRIOR” | This twenty 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.”
