New 'Legends Of Tomorrow' Rumors Tease Gorilla Grodd Storyline

One of The Flash's most memorable foes is headed to Legends of Tomorrow, and we might have just learned what he'll be up to.

A new report from Bleeding Cool suggests that Gorilla Grodd will be involved with the seventh episode of Legends' third season, titled 'Welcome to the Jungle.' According to their report, the episode will take place in 1960s Vietnam, and feature Grodd attempting to turn the conflict into World War III.

With the episode's script page being adorned with dog tags and a gorilla-like pawprint, some were already beginning to speculate if Grodd would somehow be involved. After all, the villain was first confirmed to be appearing in the series back in August, with him set to form a supervillain team with Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) and Kuasa (Tracy Ifeachor). If that team does want to cause trouble throughout time, a setting like the Vietnam War feels like a good place to do it.

Bleeding Cool's report also suggests that the episode will turn into a family affair, with an appearance by Dick Rory, the father of Mick Rory/Heatwave (Dominic Purcell). Dick will reportedly be a soldier whose weapon of choice is (of course) a flamethrower. He will reportedly be played by Evan James, best known as Retch, one of the Ravagers that tortures Baby Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.

While fans will have to wait a little while to see how this episode unfolds, they will soon be able to see the Legends on their television screens. DC's Legends of Tomorrow returns on Tuesday, October 10th at 9 p.m. ET/PT following the season premiere of The Flash.
