As the first season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow came to a close last night, we wrapped up the Vandal Savage storyline. While Rip Hunter’s original mission of stopping Savage from killing his wife and child did not go as expected, now the mission has expanded. Rip Hunter realizes that since they have stopped the corrupt Time Masters, there needs to be a new group of people to safeguard time. While some of the Legends will not be returning: Kendra & Carter retiring and Snart died, the show must go on. The finale ended with a very interesting cliffhanger and helps set up an even larger universe, many are suspecting where the show could go moving forward.
Show producer Marc Guggenheim recently spoke about the possible villain for season two. Many fans suspected that the Thanagarians would be the big bad guys, since they were referenced a few times as responsible for the potential destruction of Earth. However, Guggenheim stated that fans couldn’t be more wrong in guessing who the big baddie for the film could be.
“The season two big bad is actually not going to be the Thanagarians. It’s going to be something else entirely. All I’ll really say about the nemesis in season two is Vandal Savage looks like a walk in the park compared to what the Legends will be facing. This will be a much, much bigger threat. I’m going to leave it at that because when we do reveal it, it’s going to be pretty big. People will be asking, ‘Vandal who?’ once they get the full picture of what our team is up against. It’s going to be way bigger than what you can even imagine, I can guarantee it.”
Guggenheim also referenced the introduction of Rex Tyler AKA “Hourman” played by Suits actor Patrick J. Adams, as well as introducing the Justice Society of America who will become a major player next season.
“With his final words in the finale, he planted a pretty deep flag about where we’re headed in season two, which is not just introducing Hourman but introducing his teammates in the Justice Society of America. For comic book fans, everyone knows the Justice Society is really the precursor to the Justice League, so it’s a pretty big move in our DC universe here on TV.”
Who could the new bad guys be? Who could new people joining the legends be? Rest assured, season two will be much bigger and continue to build the show.
