DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is amping up for it’s second season this autumn, and more information is trickling out to let fans know about what they can expect to see. The show, which was created as a spinoff to both Arrow and The Flash, gives spotlight to superheroes (and, well, supervillains turned super-anti-heroes) who were not the center stage of the previous two shows, including The ATOM (Brandon Routh), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Heatwave (Dominic Purcell), White Canary (Caity Lotz), Firestorm (Franz Drameh / Victor Garber), and Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée). They are brought together as a team by Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), as they travel through time fighting evil that threatens the fabric of reality. The concept will be expanded upon in season two, and a few faces familiar to comic fans will be appearing.
In a blink and you’ll miss it moment, both Stargirl (Sarah Grey) and Reverse-Flash (Matt Letscher) can be seen in the above teaser. While Reverse-Flash has been on The Flash many times, this will be his first appearance outside of the show, and Stargirl has not yet appeared on our television screens, making this her debut to the so-called “Arrowverse”. Stargirl is most notably remembered as a member of the Justice Society of America, an old-school team of superheroes in DC Comics which includes the likes of Commander Steel, who has been mentioned on the show before, and has been cast (with actor Matthew MacCaull taking the role) to appear in the show as well.
Season 2 of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow picks up the story after the team defeated Vandal Savage in the first season. Now spread throughout time, Dr. Nate Hollywood (Nick Zano) will have to help Rip Hunter to track them down and reform the team. Then a new threat emerges in the form of the Legion of Doom, a team of baddies old and new that lay threat to the time-stream, including Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), and the aforementioned Reverse-Flash.
Season 2 of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere on October 13 at 8PM EST on The CW.
