Legends of Tomorrow promised big things upon its premiere, but Midseason, it had many DCTV Universe fans scratching their heads to try and understand the point and direction of the newly created DC Comics/CW show. Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, as hinted at in the Season 1 finale, will be dealing with a whole new threat to the timeline with the apparent aid of the Justice Society of America. Comicbook reported that Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom) teased an unusual set photo for Legends of Tomorrow Season 2.
The Legends of Tomorrow star did not elaborate on the reason for Ray Palmer’s “living off the grid” look, but he did make fans aware that the Flashpoint Paradox had not landed him on Oliver Queen’s castaway island Lian Yu. Though it could be one of several innumerable possibilities, it seems quite likely that Ray Palmer got stranded in time again.
Ray Palmer, Hawkgirl, and White Canary were stranded and left behind in the ’50s in Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 when the Waverider came under attack.
Speaking of the Justice Society of America, one of its many members that will be joining the team in Season 2 was just cast. Former Power Ranger Sarah Grey was just cast as the JSA member Stargirl, according to TV Line.
Two other JSA members have been cast, as Matthew MacCaull and Patrick J. Adams will respectively play Commander Steel and Hourman. Adams already played his titular character in the Season 1 finale, and MacCaull is no stranger to the CW, as he played a hitman turned zombie in CW’s iZombie.
Dr. Mid-Nite and Obsidian, also Justice Society of America members that will be part of Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, have yet to be cast.
The remaining members of the Season 1 team and the Justice Society of America will serve as the heroes of Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, and though not much has been discussed on the subject matter, the villains of the second season are the “Legion of Doom.”
CW’s Legion of Doom consists of Malcolm Merlyn, Captain Cold, Damien Darhk, and Reverse Flash.
Some of the aforementioned villains have been, at some point, working with the heroes of the DCTV Universe. What has caused them to turn to this Legion of Doom? Is the Flashpoint Paradox the reason for this, and the return of Reverse-Flash and Damien Darhk in Legends of Tomorrow Season 2?
