In the second season of "DC's Legends of Tomorrow," the Waverider team will encounter new superheroes, most notably the Justice Society of America. In Episode Three, titled "Shogun," the Legends must rescue potential new hero Nate (Nick Zano), who's just learning about his new abilities, and The Atom (Brandon Routh) when they become trapped in feudal Japan.
We previously got a glimpse of The Atom wearing new, samurai-style armor while riding on horseback. It appears that photo was taken during the filming of Episode Three, in which Atom and Nate find themselves battling samurai warriors.
"Shogun" also sees Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) interact with Sara (Caity Lotz) and Rory (Dominic Purcell), while Jax (Franz Drameh) and Dr. Stein (Victor Garber) discove a hidden compartment on the Waverider. Here's the episode synopsis:
