A while ago, TV Line had revealed that DC’s Legends of Tomorrow was casting two characters for episode 6 with the following description:
“Legends Episode 6 is casting a hulking, brawny a character who is poised to “pick up his father’s mantle and become a powerful villain,” as well as an African-American or biracial male who “decides to put on the uniform of a missing hero who once stood for justice and hope.”
While we don’t know yet who this villain is, we do now know who the hero is thanks to Comicbook.com that has exclusively revealed that Connor Hawke will be making his way onto DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. However there is a twist: in this version he won’t be Oliver Queen and Sandra Hawke’s son like in the comic books. So how will it work? Only time will tell, but you can look forward to seeing him on the show and hopefully soon we will have some news on who will be playing him!
“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?
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is set to premiere in early mid-season of 2016 on The CW. The Flash airs on Tuesday nights at 8/7c on The CW, with Arrow airing on Wednesday nights at 8/7c as well.
