CONSTANTINE OF COURSE!!!
Now that ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ heads into season 4 with John Constantine (Matt Ryan) at the helm, one can’t help but wonder if this is the season that they will find their footing.
When Legends first aired in 2016, the cast consisted of Arthur Darvell (Rip Hunter) as captain of the Waverunner, recruiting a series of both super heroes and villains to help prevent and apocalypse that will not only effect the earth, but all of time as well.
The original cast consisted of Darvell, Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Victor Garber ( Dr. Martin Stein/Firestorm), Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/White Canary), Franz Drameh (Jefferson Jackson/Firestorm), Ciara Renee (Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl), Falk Hentschel (Carter Hall/Hawkguy), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heatwave), and Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/ Captain Cold).
The show lagged in an uninteresting storyline that just never seemed to wow me because I was not invested in the characters of Renee, Hentschel, Darvell, and Casper Crump (Vandal Savage) who were hastily introduced in crossover episodes of The Flash S02E09 and Arrow S04E08 were Flash/ Arrow crossover episodes where they combined forces to defeat Vandal Savage. This leads to the 2 of them joining forces with Legends.
Sadly, the storyline and the cast members never seemed to find a groove with one another, with the exception of Miller and Purcell who worked together on previous projects. The Waverunner became a revolving door over the last few seasons as one by one the cast was dwindled until the only remaining members of the Legends team was Lotz, Routh, and Purcell.
Season 4 of ‘Legends of Tomorrow’, not only is trying to bring its own uniqueness but splitting from the Arrowverse but bringing a long awaited and much loved character on board in John Constantine (Matt Ryan)! Although it only lasted one season on FOX, Constantine moved over to The CW making appearances on Arrow, before joining Legends.
Here is the exclusive Synopsis for the upcoming season:
After defeating the demon Mallus by cuddling him to death with a giant stuffed animal named Beebo, the Legends are ready to ease off the gas. Sara (Caity Lotz) and her team join Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) and the Time Bureau to help clean up the last few remaining anachronisms. The job seems straightforward enough until Constantine (Matt Ryan) arrives to inform them that, in solving one major problem, they have created another, much larger one. When the Legends let time crumble in order to release and defeat Mallus, the barrier between worlds softened. History is now infected with “Fugitives” – magical creatures from myths, fairytales, and legends. Having been expelled throughout time by people like Constantine, these Fugitives are now returning to our world in droves and making a real mess of things. As the Time Bureau is distrustful of and ill-equipped to deal with magic, the Legends must team up with everyone’s favorite demonologist to set history back on track.
Sara and Constantine are joined by compassionate inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), hotheaded ex-con Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), rebellious totem-bearer Zari (Tala Ashe), and heartbroken historian-turned-superhero Nate (Nick Zano) as they set out to save the world – and their legacy. It’s the familiar fun of the Legends time-travelling across historical events and encountering famous figures with an added shot of magical craziness! Based on the characters from DC, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Phil Klemmer (“The Tomorrow People,” “Chuck”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”).
The Legends of Tomorrow Season 4 premiere date is Monday, October 22!
