‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ Boss Teases Jonah Hex, Talia al Ghul and Season Finale Revelations

“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” returns with a run of new episodes on March 31, and The CW has released a Easter egg-filled preview trailer for the back half of the season, which will bring a number of iconic DC Comics characters to the time-traveling series, including Old West gunslinger Jonah Hex, and Ra’s al Ghul’s other daughter (and frequent Batman foil) Talia al Ghul. The show will also introduce “Firefly” alum Jewel Staite as a mystery character who has ties to Ray Palmer, per executive producer Marc Guggenheim.

Guggenheim and cast members Ciara Renee (Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl), Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/White Canary) and Franz Drameh (Jefferson Jackson/Firestorm) paid a visit to WonderCon on Sunday afternoon, where they offered a few hints about what fans can expect in the final run of episodes in Season 1. Guggenheim was particularly excited about the inclusion of Talia — “We did it, we finally did it!” he enthused — after fans had previously only gotten to see her sister Nyssa; the long-awaited arrival of Jonah Hex; and a jaunt back to Star City before Sara took her fateful trip on the Queen’s Gambit with Oliver (Stephen Amell), which changed the course of her life and resulted in her time with the League of Assassins.

Before the show’s midseason break, we saw sparks fly between Ray and Kendra — a relationship that will only deepen after the characters are left stranded in the ’50s together. Unfortunately for Ray, even though Kendra’s reincarnated soulmate Carter is dead in her time, he’s certainly not forgotten, and Guggenheim teased that “Kendra’s going to start to remember more of her past lives with Carter” as the season progresses, so “in many ways, Ray is competing with a dead man — we’re doing a love triangle where one corner of the triangle is dead.”

Fans have also noted tension of a more antagonistic kind between Sara and Time Master Rip Hunter, since the two have butted heads several times this season already. “Sara has an issue with authority,” Lotz admitted. “Sara’s pretty capable, and Rip’s messed up a lot; he lies a lot.” Later this season, she revealed, “Sara might sit in a certain captain’s chair at some point, and may possibly be flying a time ship. Rip Hunter better watch out, because Captain Canary’s coming in.”

The show has already been renewed for a second season, and although Guggenheim declined to comment on what might be in store for Season 2 at this point, he did promise that we’ll get answers to some lingering questions by the season’s end.

“You will get a very definitive end to this chapter; you’ll get an answer to whether or not the team succeeds in their mission to stop Vandal Savage; you’ll get an answer to the question of the resolution of the Ray-Kendra-Carter love triangle; you’ll get to know more about what the Time Masters are up to. I don’t think there are too many unanswered questions at the end of the season,” he said.

As for whether we could see new characters join the team in the second season, Guggenheim teased, “We’ve got a couple of empty chairs on the Waverider right now, Carter’s and Rory’s… as long as there’s an empty seat — and now there’s two — anything’s possible.”

Renee voted for more female heroes to join the series, such as Megalyn Echikunwoke’s Vixen, who made her live-action debut on “Arrow” this season. “Megalyn is welcome on any of the shows, any time she wants,” Guggenheim promised.
