Legends of Tomorrow
Thanks to Ivan for the heads up.
The third season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow picks up roughly right where we left off, with a T. rex horde roaming the streets of Los Angeles, which has been littered with iconic landmarks displaced in time, like Big Ben. But it won’t be long before Rip arrives and relieves the Legends of duty. See, it’s been mere minutes for them since they broke time, but it’s been years for him — during which he created the by-the-rules Time Bureau.
“By the end of last season, he realized that his true calling is keeping time safe and that he can do it without them,” Darvill tells EW. “Actually they messed things up so much that there’s no point in hanging around with them, in using them anymore to keep that going. So he sets up this well-oiled machine, the Time Bureau. It’s really official. Everyone’s in suits. Having been a Time Master, I think he was right: If we’re going to do this, we need to do this properly, and it’s like a proper big government agency. By comparison to the Legends, they get things done quickly, quietly, and get out of there with no hassle. It’s like Legends version two. It’s what he wanted to do originally with them, I think, but has realized that he can do it a little bit more calmly with a bit less drama.”
Speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, executive producer Phil Klemmer revealed that Ryan will appear as the fan-favorite magician and con man in episodes nine and 10 of the CW drama’s upcoming third season. His arc takes place, chronologically, after his appearance in Arrow Season 4, in which Oliver Queen called upon Constantine to restore the soul of Sara Lance.
“As for the character of Constantine, we knew that an alienated, chain-smoking, bisexual, world-weary demonologist would feel right at home among our Legends,” Klemmer told the website. “His appearance in Episode 310 will involve the following: a revisiting of Arrow Season 4 and the events following that season’s finale episode; a confrontation with this season’s Big Bad on Legends — the name we’ve only heard whispered until now, Mallus; some hot sex — something that has been in short supply on the Waverider thus far in Season 3; and Damien Darhk (Neil McDonough), because how can you do an episode about dark magic and not have Damien Darhk? More than anything, the episode promises to be scary as you know what — tonally it’s The Exorcist meets One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest. Demonic possession in a mental institution, what’s not to love?”
You’re doing another group of villains this year. Did Damien Darhk take note from the Legion of Doom in creating this new cabal?
I wouldn’t say that. I would say that he’s definitely learned from all of his mistakes, because this is a Damien that is not only post-Legends season 2, it’s also a Damien that’s post-Arrow season 4.
How does bringing in Kuasa emotionally mess with Amaya? But also, how does that affect time and whether her village is destroyed?
Well, this is one of the central themes and questions of the season, which is we really want to explore the question of — for the last two years, certainly last year, the Legends were all about fixing time, but they’ve never actually taken the extra step of actually improving time and engineering history. If you’re going to go back in time and you’re going to fix history, what’s wrong with tweaking a little bit and improving it a little bit? And with Amaya having a granddaughter who is “evil,” that really personalizes that question, because it really dramatizes what could be a rather heady debate in a very, very grounded personal way, which is it’s not about just fixing time, which is this esoteric concept, it’s about fixing one specific person. At least for Amaya, obviously.
