The cast of Legends of Tomorrow dropped in on WonderCon on Sunday to talk about The CW’s DC superhero team-up, and tease what’s to come.
Stars Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh and Ciara Renée, were on hand along with executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
Fans were treated to a sizzle reel of highlights from the rest of the season, including the upcoming Western episode featuring Jonah Hex. The glimpse was brief, but Johnathon Schaech looks great in his guest starring turn as Hex, while the rest of the cast tries their hand at gunslinging.
See for yourself:
The biggest reveal from the footage is that Firefly’s Jewel Staite will play a character with a connection to Ray Palmer in an upcoming future-set episode.
And there’s a bit of this week’s episode in which Kendra and Ray are adjusting to life while marooned in the 1950s, while Sara reunites with Ra’s al Ghul.
We also learned that the team will head back to Star City — into the past this time. And Caity Lotz told fans to “get ready for ‘Captain Canary'” when Sara Lance takes over the captain’s chair on the Waverider in episode 15.
The series has been renewed for a second season, but Guggenheim told the audience that we can expect this season’s story to be wrapped up neatly in the season finale. “You’ll get a definitive end to this chapter,” he said. “You’ll find out whether or not the group succeeds in their mission to stop Vandal Savage. You’ll see a resolution of the relationship between Ray and Kendra. And you’ll know exactly what the Time Masters are up to.”
As for what’s to come next season Guggenheim was mostly tight-lipped, but dropped hints that casting changes may be coming. Deflecting a question about possible departures he said, “We’ve already got two empty chairs — from Carter and Mick — on the Waverider.”
