Only a day after Falk Hentschel was cast as Carter Hall a.k.a. Hawkman, comes another big casting news and it’s for the big bad of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. It has been announced that actor Casper Crump will portray the iconic DC Comics baddie, Vandal Savage on the upcoming Arrow/The Flash spin-off series in 2016. But, you will get a taste of him before the new show starts as he, like Hawkman, will be debuting in the next Arrow/The Flash crossover event!
Here is how the network describes Crump’s character as: “Vandal has spent the last 6,000 years moving through time like a “virulent disease.” He’s been “whispering in the ears of despots and dictators” leading to “his eventual domination of the world.”
“DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW | When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?
