‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Star Reveals Episode Order, ‘Flash’ Season 2 Return
It’s early yet for a sense of how The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow will shake out between Arrow and The Flash, but the newest crew of TV superheroes may be around longer than we’d thought. Series star Victor Garber has revealed the full episode order, as well as what to expect from future Flash appearances, Robbie Amell included.
Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Garber confirmed that the 2016 Legends of Tomorrow would shoot 15 episodes for its first, and likely not final order, saying “They (CW) aren’t going to introduce a limited series. This isn’t HBO. They want the Full Monty.”
Of course, many have noted the absence of Robbie Amell’s Ronnie Raymond from any Legends of Tomorrow announcements, a curious prospect considering the pair’s fusion into Firestorm (the trailer even described Garber’s Martin Stein as “half a hero”). According to the report, Amell is “expected” to appear in the Legends of Tomorrow pilot at least, while Garber confirmed that the pair would at least be present through The Flash’s second season premiere this fall.
Premiering likely in January of 2016, so reads the Legends of Tomorrow description:
When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known? The cast includes Victor Garber (The Flash); Brandon Routh (Arrow); Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who); Caity Lotz (Arrow); Dominic Purcell (The Flash) and Wentworth Miller (The Flash).
Thus far, we know the series to include Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber), Jay Jackson (Franz Drameh), Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), Caity Lotz, and time-traveler Rip Hunter (Doctor Who alum Arthur Darvill).
It seemed something of a question whether Legends of Tomorrow might break up Arrow and The Flash in between Seasons 4 and 2, but with 15 episodes, more likely is that all three series could run concurrently. We’ll likely learn more details from Comic-Con 2015, but does the impressively-sized Amell-free spinoff sound like a strong showing for The CW’s DC universe?
