Hold onto your hats! "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" are headed to the Old West, and that is where they'll encounter DC Comics' very own Jonah Hex. In a new behind-the-scenes featurette for "Magnificent Eight," executive producer Phil Klemmer weighed in on the episode and explained the context of Hex's first encounter with the team.
"First stop on the tour is to check out the old saloon, and -- within a matter of minutes -- Snart has shot a guy," Klemmer explained. Our Legends do what they do, which is sort of make a mess out of history."
"The fight is broken up by a mysterious character that you might recognize from the DC world as Jonah Hex," he added.
When the team needs a place to hide out, Rip (Arthur Darvill) sets a course for the Old West. Upon arrival, they start a fight with a gang of outlaws, putting the small town in jeopardy. Luckily, an old friend of Rip's, Jonah Hex (guest star Johnathon Schaech), steps in to save them. Thor Freudenthal directed the episode with story by Greg Berlanti & Marc Guggenheim and teleplay by Marc Guggenheim (#111)
