Who is going to be the next stars of DC's budding new super-team show on the CW? It seems we might have some clues.

TVLine has casting call details purported to be from the recently revealed team series spinning out of Arrow and The Flash. According to Deadline, the series will feature a superhero team comprised of seven characters: Brandon Routh as the Atom, Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Victor Garber as Dr. Martin Stein, and one-time Black Canary Caity Lotz in an unrevealed role.

In addition to the mystery of Lotz' character is three unnamed heroes who Deadline says would be debuting in live-action TV for the first time. The three heroes are identified as "The Traveler," "Female Warrior" and "Mystery Hero."

TVLine quotes directly from the purported casting call for "The Traveler," with that description laying out the character 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."

The "Female Warrior" character is described by TVLine as a "twentysomething Latina" who is booksmart, socially awkward "but unassuming" in her looks. According to this report, this unnamed character turns into the hero "when she hears the cry of battle" at night.

The third hero, "Mystery Hero," is again a character in their twenties, but in this case an African-American male. TVLine describes this one as a "street smart guy who unexpectedly gains powers, and then, as part of the team, regularly quips about the insanity of the situations."

Who do these heroes sound like to you?
