Legends of Tomorrow’s second season is going to be even better than the first, and that’s a promise (or at least a hunch) from the stars themselves.
“Last year, it was a new show. …With any big new show, there are always a few problems and you have to find out what works, what doesn’t work,” star Dominic Purcell dished to E! News at Comic-Con, which you can watch in the video above. “Last year we had those experiences—not a lot, but a few—and we’ve worked out the kinks. This year we’re going in a completely different direction and I’m guessing it’s going to be even better than the first.”
While that may or may not be true, the whole gang will have plenty of bad guys to fight now that there’s a whole rotating Rogues Gallery.
“We have Damien Dahrk, he’s a friend of Sara Lance’s,” says showrunner Phil Klemmer .
“I’ve got a long kill list this year,” Lotz shoots back.
And that’s an understatement, since the Legends have been racking up enemies at a pretty incredible rate just over their first season. With season two, that list is about to get even longer, thanks to the Legion of Doom.
“That sounds ominous, doesn’t it?” Klemmer says of the Legion, which traditionally includes 13 different supervillains led by Lex Luthor. Some familiar names in the Legion include The Riddler, Toyman, Scarecrow, and even Leonard Snart, AKA Captain Cold.
Over most of the first season, it was all of the Legends against one main bad guy, so the Legion of Doom gives the gang the chance to fight evil in a whole new way.
“It means that we can use all of our abilities to their max and split off and chase people and it opens the whole show out for some quite exciting possibilities,” Arthur Darvill explains.
“I think she might have a few,” Lotz says. “She’s kind of a player this season—dude and a girl in every port. It’s not her fault that everyone wants to hook up with her!”
