As DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is currently under production in Vancouver, Canada, TV Line has revealed today that Mr. Robot actress Stephanie Corneliussen has been tapped to bring the DC Comics villain Valentina Vostok to life on the new Arrow/The Flash spin-off series! She will be appearing in several episodes and while we don’t know which episode she will make her debut in, this is how The CW describes the DC’s Legends of Tomorrow version of the character:
“Valentina is a gifted and beautiful Soviet physicist who will stop at nothing to defend her precious “Motherland.” When the Legends encounter her at the height of the Cold War, they suspect her of working with Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) on a secret weapon. Ray/The Atom (Brandon Routh) and Leonard/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) must vie for Valentina’s affection in an attempt to thaw her cold heart, and find out where her allegiance truly lies -— before she completes her project and potentially turns the tide of the Cold War.”
So it looks like she will have some sort of connection with the big baddie himself, Vandal Savage, who will be played by Casper Crump. As the new TV season is kicking off, we will be learning more about the characters before the show premieres in, supposedly, January in 2016.
“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?
