'Legends of Tomorrow' season 2 premiere: Legion of Doom wreaks havoc in unprotected history; more members of Justice Society to arrive


The Legion of Doom will make their debut in the upcoming season 2 of The CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow.”

During the recently concluded San Diego Comic-Con, the show’s executive producers revealed that the infamous team of baddies will be composed of Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Malcolm Merlyn also known as the Dark Archer (“Arrow” alum John Barrowman), Damien Darhk (“Arrow” actor Neal McDonough) and Reverse-Flash (“The Flash” star Matt Letscher).

“For Season 2 of ‘Legends’, we decided that the perfect antagonist for TV’s first-ever team of Super Heroes would be TV’s first-ever team of Super-Villains,” showrunner Marc Guggenheim said.

The protagonists will also be getting help from more super-powered protectors with other members of the Justice Society of America being introduced. Aside from Hourman/Rex Tyler (Patrick J. Adams), who arrived in the freshman run’s finale, season 2 will also cast Stargirl, Dr. Mid-Nite and Obsidian.

Green Arrow/Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) will also have a cameo as Star City mayor, while Sara Lance/White Canary (Caity Lotz) will be vengeful after her sister Laurel’s death. When asked if her character will get a new love interest, “Sara’s kind of a player. She’s having fun. She’s a bit of a Casanova,” Lotz teased.

Meanwhile, executive producer Phil Klemmer previewed that there will be a fallout from the destruction of the Oculus as time has been left unguarded.

In the official trailer released during the convention, a voice-over can be heard stating, “Everything that has happened or will happen is subject to the exploitations of time criminals. Which is why history needs new protectors, it needs legends.”

A montage of scenes featuring the Legion of Doom wreaking great amount of havoc follows. New York has been blown up by the Nazis during World War 2, while Jonah Hex (Johnathon Schaech) returns to the Wild West. Sara assures the captain of the Waverider, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), that they can take on the new slew of threats.

Season 2 of “Legends of Tomorrow” premieres on Thursday, Oct. 13 at 8 p.m. ET.
