‘Legends of Tomorrow’ season 2 will go JSA on viewers

After the season finale of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow fans are eager to learn more about the direction of the characters, especially with the introduction of Patrick J. Adams as Rex Tyler/Hourman.

Hourman, a member of the Justice Society of America, was sent back in time by none other than Mick Rory in order to save the lives of all the Legends. That’s a big nugget to drop on fans at the end of an episode, let alone the end of a season.

THR caught up with Marc Guggenheim to talk about what the arrival of Hourman and the JSA means for Season 2 of Legends of Tomorrow.

The universe just keeps expanding and Guggenheim credits the execs.

“God bless both the studio and the network. They’ve never said, ‘This is too big. You can’t do it.’ They have often said, ‘Jeez, this is so big, how are you going to do it?’ They say that a lot. They’re always asking us how the hell we’re going to pull something off. Inevitably, our answer is, ‘We literally have no idea. But we’ll figure out a way.’”

Collider points out that the “interesting thing is that we have already been introduced to other members of the original roster: Jay Garrick/The Flash, Carter Hall/Hawkman, Terry Sloane/Mr. Terrific (a Golden Age version of Michael Holt’s eventual hero), Ted Grant/Wildcat, and yes, even Dinah Drake/Black Canary. If you have lightbulbs going off in your head about where we’ve seen these characters before and which shows they’re on, then the planned four-series cross-over event special for The FlashArrowSupergirl, and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow should make more sense with the JSA involved.
