At Warner Bros’ DC Entertainment Comic-Con block tonight, executive producer Marc Guggenheim announced that the initial episodes of Arrow and The Flash will set the groundwork for midseason series DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow. In addition, Hawkman will be added as a new character to the show.

For EP Greg Berlanti, Legends was a chance for him to do an Ocean’s Eleven-type show.

Caity Loitz talked about the continual resurrection of her League of Assassins character, the Canary — who already has died. “We’ve seen on Arrow, the people who go into the pit aren’t the same person who come out. There’s the consequences of that now, and I at least want her to go nuts off her rocker.”

Ciara Renee, who plays Hawkgirl, said she’s been prepping for her role by “reading all the comic books, catching up on Arrow and The Flash, and boxing and martial arts.”
