Make way for a league and a legion!
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is going bigger and badder in season two, with more members of the Justice Society of America set to be introduced, and fan-favorite villains from the DC Comics TV universe set to cause trouble for the returning Legends. And it was revealed during the show’s panel at Comic-Con on Saturday that The Flash‘s Matt Letscher aka the Reverse-Flash is joining the show as a series regular.
Other familiar (and beloved) faces that will appear include Wentworth Miller and John Barrowman, whose deals will allow them to appear across multiple shows, and Neal McDonough, who played Arrow‘s season four big bad Damien Dahrk, will have a recurring role on Legends in season two. That’s right, we’re finally getting TV’s first-ever team of Super-Villains: Legion of Doom.
“For season two of Legends, we decided that the perfect antagonist for TV’s first-ever team of Super Heroes would be TV’s first-ever team of Super-Villains, recruited from the ranks of Arrow and The Flash’s deadliest adversaries,” Legends boss Marc Guggenheim said. “Being huge fans of the Challenge of the Superfriends, we’ve come to call this group our ‘Legion of Doom.'”
Also set to return? Jonah Hex, who will appear in episode six, it was revealed. But along with the team-up of big bads, new heroes will also be introduced to help out the Waverider crew.
Society of America members Obsidian, Stargirl and Dr. Mid-Nite will be making their small screen debuts this season, but the roles have yet to be cast. Fans met their first member of the JSA, Rex Tyler (aka Hourman, played by Patrick J. Adams) in the season one finale.
Plus, fans will get to see Mayor Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) in the season two premiere.
Legends of Tomorrow will air Thursdays at 8 p.m. this fall on the CW.
