Add one more to the cast of the untitled spinoff of Arrow and The Flash with Arthur Darvill.

Darvill, known for playing Rory Williams on Doctor Who, will stick to the time traveling genre as he is set to play none other than Rip Hunter.

Earlier today also saw casting news for Hawkgirl in the superhero team spinoff.

THR reports Arthur Darvill is in final negotiations to play a character called The Traveller, whom they learned is Rip Hunter (the character was previously named as part of three new DC heroes to be a part of the show).

Fans of the comics know Rip Hunter has a relationship with another DC time traveling hero - Booster Gold (it remains to be seen whether or not Booster Gold will be a part of the new spinoff).

The report also mentions WB is describing Rip Hunter in the spinoff as: a roguish time traveler who hides the strains of being responsible for history itself behind a facade of charm and wit.

Rip Hunter won't be the first time travelling character as we know Tom Cavanagh is playing Professor Zoom, a character from the 25th century in the DC Comics.

Arthur Darvill also joins Brandon Routh as Atom, Victor Garber as one-half of Firestorm, Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Heat Wave and Caity Lotz in an undisclosed role.

The Arrow / Flash spinoff looks to debut next mid-season.
