DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on the CW is a pretty crazy show, but according to one of the series’ stars it’s about to get even weirder.
The news comes courtesy of Caity Lotz, who plays Sara Lance on the show about a time-hopping band of heroes who work to set history straight when villainous forces push it off course. The show wrapped up its second season in April, the finale of which saw the Legends team return to the present day after a hard-fought battle, only to find that Los Angeles has been overrun with dinosaurs.
Lotz said she didn’t know much about the upcoming third season in an interview with TVLine, but she did say the show would be getting even stranger.
“Little bit of some talks about love interests for Sara,” Lotz said, “and it’s going to be even crazier than it was last season.”
Legends getting even weirder than its second season would be quite the accomplishment. Aside from its dinosaur-laden ending, season two largely followed the Legends team as they tried to track down pieces of the Spear of Destiny, an ancient Biblical artifact that has the power to rewrite reality, and keep them out of villainous hands. This arc concluded in the previously mentioned finale episode that saw the Legion of Doom thwarted and the spear effectively wiped from reality.
A recently released season synopsis hints at what might face the Legends in season three. According to the synopsis, time has been broken into various anachronisms by the Legends’ tampering. Having parted ways with the team, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) founds the Time Bureau that ends up disbanding the group. Scattered to the wind, the Legends must reassemble and challenge the Time Bureau’s ruling.
Lotz did confirm one rumor that has been swirling around the Arrowverse, though, and that is that the third season of Legends will introduce a Muslim hacktivist character played by Tala Ashe. Ashe will play Zari Adrianna Tomaz, a grey hat hacker from the year 2030 who has become disillusioned with the technology that has defined her time, but uses that same technology to wreak havoc on her era’s despots. Zari eventually became known as the superhero Isis in her comic book incarnation.
Returning to the CW on Tuesday, October 10, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow's third season will star Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer, Nick Zano as Nick Heywood, Victor Garber as Professor Martin Stein and Franz Drameh as Jefferson “Jax” Jackson.
