“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” are back for more! Though the team has undergone a few changes — the Hawks have left, Captain Cold has died — they’ll return as strong as ever for Season 2. Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Arthur Darvill, Victor Garber, Dominic Pucell, Franz Drameh, Nick Zano, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, executive producers Marc Guggenheim and Phil Klemmer appeared at Comic-Con International in San Diego to discuss their new mission, the JSA and more in Season 2.
“Even heroes have heroes and for us, the JSA is that Golden Age generation of superheroes,” Klemmer said. “For some of you, it’s something for you to look up to, like you for you, Brandon.”
Guggenheim announced Stargirl, Obsidian, Dr. Mid-Nite, Commander Steel and Vixen for Season 2.
“Right out of the gate, we’re blending these worlds,” Klemmer added.
“We’re going to see Mr. Stephen Amell playing Oliver Queen right at the beginning. Actually, Mayor Oliver Queen,” Guggenhiem revealed.
“Neal McDonough will return for the Season 2 premiere,” he added. “Jonah Hex is returning.”
“As the show evolves, you find different relationships that have… a specificity and a meaning, and the writers pick up on that and they write for those two people,” Garber shared. “We’re still evolving, and we have two new wonderful people. Hopefully we’ll get better and better.”
“Snart is the boss… and Rory this year is going to be more outrageous than he was last year,” Pucell said.
“For the Firestorm dynamic… we became a cohesive unit. We’re on the same page at the moment. How long that lasts in another question,” Drameh shared.
“No matter how well we’re getting along, there’s egos involved and we’ll be at each other’s throats in a minute,” Garber added.
“I don’t know if it’s so much a romance yet. Sara’s kind of a player. She’s having a little fun,” Lotz said. “I did ask if Sara could get a nice girlfriend coming up. It’s hard to find love when you’re traveling through time on a spaceship.”
“If it was up to Ray, he would vanquish all evil in episode one, but then we wouldn’t have a season,” Routh explained.
“I think he’d like to. He sees himself [as a leader] — he’s not very good, is he?” Darvill said. “He really messed up, and lost his family. When we first meet him, he’s like a disappointed parent.”
“There’s a big, exciting new twist [for Rip Hunter],” he added.
“Character-wise, I think Sara [Lance] and I clash,” Zano said.
Richardson-Seller said that her character, Vixen, gets along with White Canary, but clashes with Heatwave.
“By destroying the Time Masters, our guys are left holding the bag,” Klemmer explained. “Now they’re in charge of guarding all of history.”
“Last year, we knew everything. The what, where, how — Season 2 is predicated more on mysteries. Instead of one bad guy, there are multiple,” he revealed.
“If you’re going to have a team of heroes, you’re going to need a team of villains,” Guggenheim revealed. Matt Lescher will return as Reverse Flash alongside McDonough’s Darhk, while Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) and Captain Cold (Leonard Snart) join this evil team.
“We call it the Legion of Doom,” Guggenheim said.
Darvill revealed his excitement to work with Barrowman, as the two appeared on “Doctor Who” at different intervals.
“I met [Tyler Hoechlin] last night,” Brouth shared, “but I was impressed by his answers and his sincerity. I think he’s very accomplished and he’ll do a fantastic job. He’ll do a fantastic job. One of the biggest parts of it is getting fit, and it looks like he has that down.”
“With the right story at the right time, we’d love to see more Carter and Kendra,” Guggenheim revealed.
“When I first read my script, I kept reading [Dominic Pucell’s] lines because it was under Rory,” Darvill recalled. “I kept thinking, ‘That’s a weird line for me to say.'”
Starring Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Arthur Darville and more, “Legends of Tomorrow” returns to The CW for its second season on Thursday, Oct. 13, at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
