As of last night's Arrow season finale, the DCTV universe on The CW is currently on hiatus until the fall. But the fan-favorite universe of shows is still providing awesome new content for its fans, thanks to a new poster for Legends of Tomorrow.
The poster was shared on Twitter earlier today by one of the series' stars, Brandon Routh. Routh, who plays Ray Palmer/The Atom, hinted that this is fans' first tease of Legends' upcoming third season.
This poster, while simply providing a badass group shot of the team, does offer subtle hints about the next season. The presence of Amaya Jiwe/Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and Nate Heywood/Citizen Steel (Nick Zano) indicate that last season's pair of 'newbies' will remain on the show. And while Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) officially departed from the team during the second season finale, him being included on the poster isn't surprising, when taking the newest Legends synopsis (which you can read below) into consideration.
Legends of Tomorrow's third season will debut in the fall, airing on Tuesday nights at 9/8c following The Flash.
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.
