5 Things We Learned From ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ Comic-Con Panel

When the cast and producers of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow took the stage at Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment’s Superhero Saturday night, they brought a ton of teases and reveals about the new show and what fans can expect.

From the reincarnations to unlikely team-ups to the time travel that will be a huge part of the show, fans got a ton of teases about this Arrow/Flash spinoff that is going to make the wait until midseason even longer.

Now let’s break it down.

Here are five things that we learned from DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’s Comic-Con panel:

1. The characters will be set up on Arrow and The Flash

The first few episodes of Arrow and Flash are going to do some “table setting,” which allows the characters to be set up in order to make their way onto DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. “The crossover will play into Legends that will come on in midseason. It’s all very organic,” said executive producer Marc Guggenheim.

2. Hawkman will be a part of the show

It wouldn’t be Comic-Con if there wasn’t some news about a new DC character coming to the show. While Legends of Tomorrow hasn’t started filming yet, Geoff Johns announced that when the show does get going that we’ll be seeing Hawkman sometime this season.

3. The Lazarus Pit will affect Sara Lance

We all remember Malcolm’s eerie words regarding those who survive the Lazarus Pit, like Arrow‘s Thea and soon Sara. Caity Lotz said that the Pit has changed Sara in a huge way, and that there will be consequences. It’s made her the most dangerous member of the group because “she’s not afraid to die,” Lotz said. “Imagine that you have no fear of death. Every situation that you go into there’s this reckless abandonment that you can have and really nothing can stop her.”

4. Time travel is going to be a huge part of the show.

When time traveler Rip Hunter is heavily involved in this show you know that time travel is going to be integral, which the producers confirmed. They touched upon how the time travel aspect will be explored on the show as the group tries to stop the immortal Vandal Savage. “They’re going to be meeting Vandal Savage in several different time zones, and part of the fun of the show is watching if they do something if one time zone if they’re affecting the rest of history,” said executive producer Andrew Kreisberg.

5. Legends is all “crazy ideas” and is going to be “bonkers”

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg said that Legends of Tomorrow consists of all of the things too crazy to do on Arrow or The Flash.  But he also noted that they had to create a show that was unique and didn’t feel like more of the same. “It was important for us to not to do the same show,” said Kreisberg. “We’re already doing Arrow, and we’re already doing The Flash, and we wanted to do something different. This show is going feel as radically different from Flash as Flash is from Arrow.”

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow premieres midseason on The CW.
