Jonah Hex Coming to DC’s ‘Legends of Tomorrow’

A report by Entertainment Weekly reveals that yet another familiar face will be seen on DC’s upcoming show Legends of Tomorrow.

EW states that antihero Jonah Hex joins the fray during season one:

“Ever since we decided that Legends would involve time travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim says. “But if you’re going to do a story set in the DC Universe version of the Old West, you simply must include Jonah Hex in it. We’re thrilled about bringing another well known, beloved DC character to television.”

No announcement has been made regarding casting, but Hex is said to appear in the eleventh episode of this season, with the potential to return.

Hex first appeared in DC’s All Star Western circa 1972. He’s a bounty hunter from the Old West, recognized by notable scarring on the right side of his face. Josh Brolin previously portrayed the character in his 2010 film, while three separate actors did his voice in DC’s various animated series.
