Whereas govt producer Marc Guggenheim could not be too upfront about what the present has deliberate, he did verify that whoever is becoming a member of is already part of the Arrow-verse:
We do have a plan for tips on how to substitute Firestorm on the bridge, and it is a actually cool one. It is one we’re actually enthusiastic about. There’s actually like two empty chairs on the Waverider. So we do have a recreation plan. We have all the time had a recreation plan. I simply can’t discuss concerning the recreation plan. The CW publicity will decide after we get to unleash that bit of stories… It is a returning. It is a beforehand established character from the Arrow-verse.
