DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” is set to return for season 3, and it’s safe to say that the show will have plenty of fun surprises for fans as the season goes on. Last season the Legends went up against the Legion of Doom, but this time around things are going to be a little different.
“This is a much more supernatural, spooky vibe this season. We’re dealing more with magic,” executive producer Phil Klemmer said at the TCA press tour a few months ago. “It’s less real-world bad guys.”
Given that the upcoming season will feature a more supernatural vibe, it sounds like the perfect opportunity for Constantine to appear, and now he’s been confirmed for the show.
Matt Ryan will reprise his role as John Constantine in an upcoming episode of “Legends of Tomorrow” but at this point it’s not yet known which episode he will be appearing in.
During a recent interview with Rotten Tomatoes Phil Klemmer confirmed that Constantine will be performing and exorcism.
“We get Billy Zane and the circus [in the second episode]; we get a little Julius Caesar on the beach in Aruba in the premiere. We meet [new team member] Zari in this sort of dystopian future. We get to do a little Amblin alien episode back in the ’80s; we do some Jack the Ripper Victorian London; Golden Age of Hollywood; John Constantine doing an exorcism. We do a Freaky Friday episode. The only thing we haven’t been able to do: We really wanted to do an Abba “Waterloo” in then Napoleonic wars but we could not get the rights for the song.”
Constantine is no stranger to the “Arrowverse” as Matt Ryan previously appeared on an episode of “Arrow” in season 4, so he should fit right in with the Legends.
DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” will return for season 3 on Tuesday, October 10.
After the defeat of Eobard Thawne and his equally nefarious Legion of Doom, the Legends face a new threat created by their actions at the end of last season. In revisiting a moment in time that they had already participated in, they have essentially fractured the timeline and created anachronisms – a scattering of people, animals, and objects all across time! Our team must find a way to return all the anachronisms to their original timelines before the time stream falls apart. But before our Legends can jump back into action, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and his newly established Time Bureau call their methods into question.
With the Time Bureau effectively the new sheriffs in town, the Legends disband – until Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell) discovers one of them in the middle of his well-deserved vacation in Aruba. Seeing this as an opportunity to continue their time traveling heroics, Sara (Caity Lotz) wastes no time in getting the Legends back together. We reunite with billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), the unconventional historian-turned-superhero Nick Heywood (Nick Zano), and Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm.
Once reunited, the Legends will challenge the Time Bureau’s authority over the timeline and insist that however messy their methods may be, some problems are beyond the Bureau’s capabilities. Some problems can only be fixed by Legends.
