While we met DC’s Legends of Tomorrow‘s big bad Vandal Savage before the show even premiered, don’t expect the same for its sophomore season.
During the two-part Arrow/Flash crossover last December, fans were introduced to the immortal Savage as he made his intentions about destroying the world quite clear. It took both Team Arrow and Team Flash to stop him before he found his way back to torment our group of Legends throughout season one.
Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Marc Guggenheim teased that we’ll see a gradual reveal of the season’s villain much like its counterparts Arrow and Flash (via EW‘s Spoiler Room):
“Unlike season 1 of Legends, where we basically had the big bad introduced in the crossover. What we’re going to do in season 2 of Legends will be more similar to what you’ve experienced in the first three seasons of Arrow or the first two seasons of Flash, where it’s more of a slow reveal and a little bit of a mystery.”
With the introduction of the Justice Society of America and a couple of new faces in Vixen (who appeared on Arrow and her own animated series Vixen) and Dr. Nate Heywood, there are exciting things coming next season. Bringing in the JSA opens up a wide array of possibilities as far as big bads are concerned.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow premieres Thursday, Oct. 13 at 8/7c on the CW.
