Legends of Tomorrow @ Comic-Con: 'Crazy Ideas' Fuel the 'Bonkers' Spinoff

DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Spoilers

Legends of Tomorrow, all it is is the crazy ideas. It’s bonkers.”

That’s how executive producer Andrew Kreisberg described the Arrow/Flash spinoff at the series’ Comic-Con panel on Saturday.

“It was important for us not to do the same show” as The CW’s aforementioned superhero dramas, the EP continued. “We really wanted to do something different.”

But first, the early episodes of Arrow and Flash‘s new seasons will need to do some tablesetting for the spinoff, as will a forthcoming crossover event.

Then at midseason, Legends kicks off with the fight to stop immortal Big Bad Vandal Savage, who has “been around for thousands of years,” Kreisberg said. “Part of the fun of the show is: How do you defeat somebody you can’t kill?” As the ragtag group of heroes clashes with Vandal Savage in several different time zones, they’ll be finding out if what they do in one timeline affects the rest of history.

Also revealed in the Legends of Tomorrow SDCC panel discussion:

* As viewers saw with Arrow‘s Thea, “The person who goes into the pit isn’t necessarily the same person that comes out,” Caity Lotz warned of Sara’s return. “There’s consequences to that…. I want [Sara] to go nuts.”

* Hawkman will play a role in the series, which currently costars Ciara Renee as Hawkgirl.

* How will baddie Captain Cold fit into the group of do-gooders? “I think he’s going to respond badly,” Wentworth Miller answered. “Leonard Snart is used to being the guy in charge. He’s not a team player. … These guys have to work together, but it’s going to be a bumpy ride.”

  2. W pierwszym przypadku wystarczył by kocioł 17-18 kW a w
    drugim tak jak wyliczyłeś czyli 26kW.

  3. Sarah_ says:

    Can’t wait for more Captain Cold:)

  4. Joey Padron says:

    good stuff from their panel. excited to see the show next year!

  5. Drew says:

    They just did a Flash episode all about how Captain Cold can’t be trusted and what a bad idea it is to put him on a team. Now they have to go back and undo the whole point of that episode (which was admittedly one of the low points of the season anyway) so that he can make sense on Legends.

  6. Patrick says:

    I’m really worried about this. There seems to be no script. It seems like one of those projects that is driven by business guys rather than creative guys. They threw all these folks together, with the idea that they’d write a script later. I hope its good, I’m just worried.

    • rinaex says:

      That’s what I’m worried about, too. It’s a cool concept, but it could so easily devolve into a huge mess.

      • Patrick says:

        Right????!!!!!!!!! This is a lot of people and egos to satisfy. It may be too much. Given the success of the genre, I have to feel the season finale might see some deaths as they clear the decks of whoever is the least popular, etc.

        • I still think it’s a huge mistake to bring resurrection of the all dead into any show’s universe. They’ve just killed any stakes for Flash or Arrow with that. Oh, Laurel’s dead again, chuck her in the pit will you…

          They’ve got time-travel in this show, it’d be far better for that to have been used to snatch Sara from her time-line.
