Brandon Routh Discusses Whether Hawkman And Hawkgirl Will Return To Legends Of Tomorrow

Although Legends of Tomorrow was said to have been originally intended to be an anthology series, we’ve still been witness to there being a revolving door of sorts on the Waverider. In short, each passing season has seen at least a few heroes come and go, sometimes even in midstream (just as both halves of Firestorm).

And while each series making up the rich Arrowverse have seen their share of surprising returns, Legends itself hasn’t heard from two key members of the team’s original lineup since the end of season 1. We are, of course, referring to Hawkman and Hawkgirl.

When speaking at Heroes and Villains Fan Fest in Nashville over the weekend, actor Brandon Routh had this to offer when asked if his winged friends will ever make a comeback:

“I don’t know about Hawkgirl and Hawkman. I think they’re off in hawk, not heaven,

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow to lose another team member in the season 3 finale

Having bid farewell to Victor Garber and Franz Drameh’s Firestorm this season, it seems we’ll be losing another member of the team in the upcoming season finale of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Speaking to TV Line ahead of Monday’s premiere, executive producer Phil Klemmer has revealed that: “There’s heartbreak in the finale. A Legend leaves.”

It has become customary for Legends’ season finales to say goodbye to characters, with Hawkman and Hawkgirl exiting in the season one finale and Rip Hunter stepping down from the team in the season two finale.

Legends Of Tomorrow Season Finale Image Reveals Jax

With less than a week to go until Legends of Tomorrow‘s season finale arrives, it’s time we begin wrapping our heads around how much will be contained within that hour of television. I mean, not only will the team find themselves transported back to the Old West for the final battle against Mallus, but we’ve got some notable guest stars to look forward to seeing.

Already, we knew to expect the likes of Jonah Hex, John Constantine and Jefferson Jackson, but it’s the third hero we just mentioned that’ll be the focus of today’s discussion. You see, actor Franz Drameh made his exit from the series around the midseason mark, swiftly following in the footsteps of the other half of Firestorm, Victor Garber’s Martin Stein.

But unlike Stein, Jax is still among the living – albeit bereft of superpowers. As such, it quickly became

Jes Macallan Promoted To Series Regular For Legends Of Tomorrow Season 4

In its early days, Legends of Tomorrow was intended to be an anthology show, with storylines isolated to each given season and different lineups being showcased in each subsequent year. Of course, plans soon changed as viewers became attached to certain characters, but as time has gone on, we have seen a fair amount of heroes come and go.

A recent example of this would be Franz Drameh’s Jefferson Jackson, someone who’d been around since the pilot episode. After the other half of Firestorm, Victor Garber’s Martin Stein, exited the series, Drameh soon followed suit, as the writers may have not been able to figure out a way to keep his character around sans superpowers.

Fortunately, Jax’s position on the Waverider was recently filled by none other than Kid Flash (Keiynan Lonsdale), with Matt Ryan’s John Constantine also slated to join in the action in season 4. And,

Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 Finale Will Bring Back Jax

Franz Drameh’s Jefferson “Jax” Jackson is returning to Legends of Tomorrow for the season 3 finale. Jax left the series in the midseason finale, following the death of Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber) in the 2017 Arrowverse crossover.

The fate of Firestorm was put in question after it was reported that Victor Garber was preparing to exit the show in season 3 to resume his career on Broadway.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 Episode 11 Review: Here I Go Again

It's amazing what this series can do when there aren't an abundance of unnecessary characters aboard the Waverider.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 Episode 11 follows Zari as she's stuck in a time loop where the end result is always the ship exploding at the end of the hour with all of the Legends onboard.

What an intense hallucination, right?

While you could have predicted something like this at the beginning, the twist at the end with Gideon being behind the simulation of Zari trying to save the other Legends was interesting, and this was an important step toward including Zari as a more permanent fixture on the team.

Member-ish. This was always a temporary arrangement.

Zari doesn't exactly fit in aboard the ship, and her mentality has always been an issue for some members of the team (read:

Watch The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Fight in Injustice 2

The new trailer for Injustice 2 showcases the arrival of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles as they team up to battle some of DC’s biggest bads. After the wildly popular Injustice: Gods Among Us took the gaming world and DC fandom by storm, the sequel has become hit. An Injustice comic continues to dive into the alternate reality, while last year’s Injustice 2 brought back the reworks of iconic DC villains and heroes. From Green Lantern to Brainiac to Firestorm, the game allowed fans to take control of their favorite DC heroes—but it didn’t stop there.

Is DC Quietly Rebuilding One of Morrison’s Signature Superhero Teams?

Warning: This article contains spoilers for Green Lanterns #40 by Tim Seeley and Barnaby Bagenda, in stores now.

The letest issue of Green Lanterns starts with various superheroes lending a helping hand in the wake of a hurricane. It’s a nice, low-key scene following Jessica Cruz and Simon Baz as the two join in securing civilians from terrible weather conditions. They are not alone in those efforts, however; with the Justice League away on a bigger and even more threatening mission, Tim Seeley and Barnaby Bagenda give some of DC Comics’ smaller-time heroes the chance to shine. We see Firestorm carrying people to safety, while Blue Beetle, Supergirl and even Power Girl help in any way they can. Most of the characters are regular players in the Rebirth era, of course, but one of them is a face readers haven’t seen in some time: The Bulleteer is back.

Keiynan Lonsdale’s Wally West officially joins DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

Earlier this month The CW president Mark Pedowitz teased the possibility of Keiynan Lonsdale’s Wally West joining the cast of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and now executive producer Phil Klemmer has confirmed that Kid-Flash will be linking up with the time-travelling heroes as a replacement for Firestorm. Wally will make an appearance in the eleventh episode, before joining the team in an official capacity in the thirteen episode.

“We loved working with Keiynan in our series premiere — the episode in which we learned that in between seasons 2 and 3 he had been fighting crime in Central City with Nick Zano’s Nate Heywood,” said Klemmer. “So when his character stepped away from Flash to go on walkabout, after being dumped and feeling somewhat estranged from his family and team, we knew that Wally West would fit in perfectly on Legends.

Keiynan Lonsdale Confirmed As Series Regular For Legends Of Tomorrow

From the start, Legends of Tomorrow set itself apart from the rest of the Arrowverse pack by being a true ensemble show – and there was also the time travel element, of course. But, as the series endures, its lineup has gradually seen its fair share of changes, not unlike any heavy metal band that’s been around for a number of years.

To be more specific, the current season has seen the exits of both Victor Garber’s Martin Stein and Franz Drameh’s Jeffferson Jackson – both halves of Firestorm – thus leaving a considerable void. And while John Constantine and Citizen Cold will be around for the short term, the Waverider is in desperate need of more permanent fixtures.

Truth be told, one slot that absolutely must be filled is that of someone who is capable of keeping up the ship’s maintenance, a role that had previously been taken on by Jax.

The CW Boss Teases Kid Flash Coming To Legends Of Tomorrow

Fans were upset when Wally West Aka Kid Flash upped and left Central City in the first few episodes of The Flash season 4. Though it would be fair to say that the show had been routinely underusing him for a while, Wally is a major character in the Scarlet Speedster’s mythos and didn’t deserve to be dropped out of the Arrowverse so casually.

With him exiting S.T.A.R. Labs, though, it was hoped that Kid Flash might crossover to Legends of Tomorrow instead and join the time-travelling crew of the Waverider. After all, that show is all about the misfit heroes of the Arrowverse that are looking to make their name but haven’t found the right way to do it yet.

Unfortunately, this didn’t happen in the first half of the current season. But now we have some good news that heavily hints that

Lego DC Super Heroes: The Flash Gets Trailer And Release Date

With a hit CW series and a recent appearance in the Justice League‘s first silver screen outing now under his belt, one could say that everything’s coming up Flash. In fact, not only is the Flashpoint movie said to be still in some phase of production, but the Scarlet Speedster will soon headline an animated flick in the form of Lego DC Super Heroes: The Flash.

Now, it should be noted that much like his aforementioned solo movie or the animated film that was based on the very same source material, Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox, the next direct-to-video Lego offering won’t afford Barry Allen the luxury of starring in a motion picture entirely free of his heroic cohorts. But the fact that Warner Bros. are allowing him to be the central focus is still nothing to shake Weather Wizard’s wand at.

Exclusive interview with actor Vladimir Kulich

david j. moore chats with actor Vladimir Kulich about The 13th Warrior, Ironclad, The Equalizer and his new projects Grave Walkers and Savage Dog

Perhaps best known for playing Buliwyf in The 13th Warrior, the big budget epic sword and sorcery-type film from director John McTiernan and writer Michael Crichton from 1999, actor Vladimir Kulich towers above his co-stars in most of the projects he’s been in. Imbued with a distinct look and voice, Kulich also co-starred in films such as Decoy with Peter Weller, Red Scorpion 2 with Matt McColm, Crackerjack with Thomas Ian Griffith, and Firestorm with Howie Long. Over the years he’s specialized in playing Nordic heroes or stalwart warriors in projects like Ironclad and the TV series Vikings, but he’s also versatile, appearing in key roles in Smokin’ Aces and The Equalizer with Denzel Washington. His latest projects are the independent horror film Grave Walkers

Ed Catto: Look! Up in the Sky! It’s Jamal Igle’s Supergirl!

Geek Culture in popular media has some dark and grisly stories to tell. I’m talking about shows like Gotham, The Walking Dead, Deadpool and the upcoming Suicide Squad movie. But it’s a big tent with lots of room.

CBS’s Supergirl show is on the other end of the spectrum. Supergirl is a positive, upbeat program that focuses on heroism without the grimness or grittiness that so many other comic shows embrace.

Over the years, however, Supergirl’s adventures have had many different styles. She’s run the gamut from being sweet and innocent to sultry and sexy (with goth-esque overtones). With a fresh and friendly point of view, Sterling Gates and Jamal Igle jumped onboard to the Supergirl comic in 2008. They never looked back. Today we see so much of what they brought to the party baked into television’s version of Supergirl.

I caught up with Jamal Igle,

19 new comic book TV shows airing in 2015 and beyond

Daredevil, Preacher, Supergirl... Lost track of the zillions of comic book shows to grace our televisions from 2015? Here's our cheat sheet.

It’s a wonderful time to be a TV-binging comic book fan. In fact, if you were a little tactical about your viewing habits (and not too fussy in your Marvel/DC preference), we’re approaching a state where you could probably fill an ‘all the soap operas’ shaped hole in your schedule every day with the stuff of capes, cowls and crime-fighting.

Of course, we already have Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, The Walking Dead and – for now – Constantine gracing our schedules. Of those, Arrow, The Flash and The Walking Dead have already been picked up for further seasons, as well. With the exception of Constantine, we wouldn’t be too surprised to hear the rest renewed too.

The fun doesn’t stop there.
