The season premiere of Legends of Tomorrow is a little under two weeks away. The first season, which had its ups and downs, saw Rip Hunter gather up a team of aspiring and reluctant heroes to travel through time and prevent Vandal Savage from taking over the world. The series was largely praised for its action sequences and visuals, but there were some complaints regarding the stale portrayal of Savage, and the number of filler episodes. Still, the first season ended on a bang, pumping up the excitement for the series’ sophomore run.
The first season ended with Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller) sacrificing his life so his friend, Mick (Dominic Purcell), could live, and the remaining Waverider team being confronted by a certain member of the Justice Society of America. That cliffhanger, which saw the team warned by Rex Tyler aka Hourman (played by Suits‘ Patrick J. Adams) was an indicator to fans that Legends of Tomorrow would continue to evolve. Since then, we have learned that the Justice Society of America will indeed show up this season, with Obsidian, Hourman, Vixen, Dr. Mid-Nite, Stargirl, and Commander Steel all appearing. And while we have seen a few images of the Justice Society of America, individually, now we have a look at them as a team.
The CW (via TVLine) has recently released a slew of new photos teasing Legends of Tomorrow‘s second season, the most tantalizing of which feature the Justice Society of America. You can click this link for all the photos, but we have included the most exciting ones below:
Just in case those images alone don’t heighten the anticipation for Legends of Tomorrow’s second season, The CW has also released the second episode’s synopsis:
“TEAM WORK — The Legends travel to Nazi-occupied Paris, but find themselves surrounded by the Justice Society of America (AKA JSA.) The Legends discover a time aberration that threatens the JSA, but the JSA wants nothing to do with them or their help. Nevertheless, the Legends force their way into the JSA’s mission to intercept and seize a mysterious package. Nate (Nick Zano) is desperate to prove that he should be part of the team, but he has a secret that he shares with his grandfather Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull) that might make it difficult. Ray (Brandon Routh) is so focused on impressing the JSA, he puts himself and Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) in danger. Meanwhile, Stein (Victor Garber) has stepped in as the leader with Rip (Arthur Darvill) gone, but when decisions aren’t being made Sara (Caity Lotz) seems to be the one calling the shots.
Dominic Purcell and Franz Drameh also star. Michael Grossman directed the episode written by Chris Fedak & Sarah Nicole Jones (#202).”
The images and synopsis tease a highly eventful and exciting beginning to Legends of Tomorrow‘s second season. It appears like a few returning characters will be falling into old habits, like Ray letting ego endanger the team (see his interaction with Savage in the first season), and Sara having to reluctantly take on a leadership role. But clearly, the most tantalizing bit of information is the conflict that will occur between the JSA and Legends. With the Justice Society of America appearing, and the Legion of Doom (or the Arrowverse version) acting as a season long threat, Legends of Tomorrow is poised to improve upon its first season, and promises an exciting sophomore run.
The Flash season 3 will premiere Tuesday October 4th at 8pm on The CW, Arrow season 5 will premiere in the same timeslot on Wednesday October 5th, Supergirl season 2 on Monday October 10th, and Legends of Tomorrow season 2 on Thursday October 13th.
