Before Legends of Tomorrow's second season came to a conclusion, the Legends had created some major cracks in the timeline in the aftermath of their feud with the Legion of Doom.
As a result, history as we all know it is changed within Legends of Tomorrow. The CW series will explore the side effects of the Legends' actions. Sara Lance actress Caity Lotz spilled as much during a conversation with DC All Access. Check out the interview in the video above.
"I think this time we're not gonna see history as we remembered it," Lotz said. Before, you'd travel back and history was kind of what it was in the text books. Now that we've broken time, we can travel anywhere and anything can be crazy."
As for the time line, Lotz is quick to respond, "Yeah," when asked if it will remain broken when the series returns. "Oh, yeah."
In that timeline, though, the Legends will encounter new characters and possibly add members to the roster. "I heard something about us getting a Muslim activist character on the show."
For Sara Lance, however, Lotz hopes for something specific in the future. "I'd like to see what sort of effects being in charge have on her," Lotz said. "I'd like to see her have a good relationship. Not just a fling but a real love relationship would be nice."
More details will likely emerge at San Diego Comic Con later this month.
"After crash landing the Waverider in a version of 2017 Los Angeles where dinosaurs roam the streets and the skyline is adorned with London’s iconic Big Ben clock tower, the Legends were quick to realize that “we broke time.” Last year, the loveable band of misfit heroes traveled throughout the timeline fixing a series of Aberrations.
This year, they’ll be turning the crazy up to 11, as a wave of Anachronisms turns History on its head, leaving the Legends responsible for piecing it back together. What is an Anachronism you ask? For the answer to that, and many other questions, join cast members Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Dominic Purcell, Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh, Nick Zano, Maisie Richardson-Sellers and producers at their annual Comic-Con panel."
We have speculated quite a bit about what Legends could do in season three, including the inclusion of a cult-favorite DC Comics character. What the show actually ends up doing will have to be seen, hopefully during their July 22nd SDCC panel, which is scheduled from 4:10 to 4:50 PM PST.
After the defeat of Eobard Thawne and his equally nefarious Legion of Doom, the Legends face a new threat created by their actions at the end of last season. In revisiting a moment in time that they had already participated in, they have essentially fractured the timeline and created anachronisms – a scattering of people, animals, and objects all across time! Our team must find a way to return all the anachronisms to their original timelines before the time stream falls apart. But before our Legends can jump back into action, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and his newly established Time Bureau call their methods into question. With the Time Bureau effectively the new sheriffs in town, the Legends disband – until Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell) discovers one of them in the middle of his well-deserved vacation in Aruba. Seeing this as an opportunity to continue their time travelling heroics, Sara (Caity Lotz) wastes no time in getting the Legends back together.
We reunite with billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), the unconventional historian-turned-superhero Nick Heywood (Nick Zano), and Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm. Once reunited, the Legends will challenge the Time Bureau’s authority over the timeline and insist that however messy their methods may be, some problems are beyond the Bureau’s capabilities. Some problems can only be fixed by Legends.0comments
