New photos reveal Damien Darhk, Albert Einstein, Dr. Nate Heywood…and Oliver Queen
We’re a little over a month away from the premiere of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 and, along with last week’s new trailer, The CW has now released a full image gallery from the first new episode, ‘Out of Time.’
There are several interesting shots in the mix, including one featuring the entire Legends team hiding in the back of a fish truck with famed physicist Albert Einstein. Arrow‘s Damien Darhk puts in an appearance, presumably setting his character up to join the Legion of Doom later in the season.
Most interestingly, though are the photos of guest-star Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen. It’s been known for a while that Amell would appear in the season premiere, but most had assumed it would be a short, trivial appearance — possibly in a televised address as Star City’s new mayor or something similarly inconsequential.
In the photos, though, it would appear that Oliver Queen may have a vital role in the episode, with one striking image showing Amell confronting Dominic Purcell’s Mick Rory.
Here’s the full description of Legends of Tomorrow‘s upcoming season, straight from The CW:
After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the corrupt Time Masters who colluded with him, a new threat emerges. Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action upon making a shocking discovery – the Legends are scattered throughout time. Nate must find a way to rescue season one’s beloved team of heroes and rogues, including billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; and Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), aka Heat Wave, a career criminal. When the Legends encounter the J.S.A (the Justice Society of America, the precursor to DC’s Justice League) in the 1940s, Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), aka Vixen, joins the team. While the team reunites, a mystery looms – the fate of former captain Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill).
Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations – unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. When Nate, the grandson of J.S.A. member Commander Steel, unexpectedly finds himself with powers, he must overcome his own insecurities and find the hero within himself. Ultimately, the Legends will clash with foes both past and present, to save the world from a mysterious new threat.
