Some big news just came in for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow that is very close now to airing on The CW – Variety revealed that the DC Comics character Jonah Hex is coming to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in the 11th episode and has the potential to possibly become a recurring character. While he hasn’t been cast just yet, Marc Guggenheim, the show-runner, said this in a statement about the addition of Jonah Hex on the show.
“Ever since we decided that Legends would involve time travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West. But if you’re going to do a story set in the DC Universe version of the Old West, you simply MUST include Jonah Hex in it. We’re thrilled about bringing another well known, beloved DC character to television.”
“In 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 the planet is at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?
