DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” will be returning for season 3 in the fall, and fans can expect some new characters to come into focus. “Legends of Tomorrow” has always been built on the idea of a revolving cast, and last season fans were introduced to the Justice Society of America, as well as other characters along the way.
Now Deadline is reporting that Tala Ashe has joined the show as a series regular, and she will be playing the DC Comics character Zari Adriana Tomaz, aka Isis.
Back in 1975 the character appeared on the small screen in a short-lived show called “The Secret of Isis” and she was played by Joanna Cameron. However, it looks like the version we’ll be seeing on “Legends” in the fall will be a new incarnation of the character.
Zari is described as, “a Muslim-American woman from the year 2030 who lives in a world of contradictions. Technology has brought about incredible change in her future, but human nature hasn’t kept pace. Fear, prejudice and a lack of care for the planet have forced Zari to become a “gray hat hacktivist.” She lives a double life and doesn’t realize that she has secret, latent powers derived from an ancient, mystical source.”
DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” will return in the fall for season 3.

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.
