Not too long ago Stephen Amell was spotted on the set of ‘Legends of Tomorrow‘ and now we know why! The synopsis for the premiere episode of the second season, ‘Out of Time’, has been released and with it, the reason why Amell was with the crew of the WaveRider. It isn’t as straightforward as him being there to join the team or save the day.
Yes, crossovers abound. Here is the synopsis from the first episode which should help put things in perspective:
LOST AND FOUND — GUEST STARRING STEPHEN AMELL — After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the exposure of the corrupt Time Masters, a new threat emerges. Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action. After making a shocking discovery, Nate seeks out Oliver Queen (guest star Stephen Amell) for help in finding the scattered Legends. Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations – unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. Their first stop is 1942 to protect Albert Einstein from being kidnapped before the Nazis destroy New York City with a nuclear bomb. Meanwhile, Ray (Brandon Routh) notices that Sara (Caity Lotz) has a mission of her own, which leads them both to face her nemesis, Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough). Victor Garber, Arthur Darvill, Dominic Purcell and Franz Drameh also star. Dermot Downs directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Phil Klemmer and Greg Berlanti & Chris Fedak.
So while initially, it looks like Oliver Queen is just going to be there as a middleman. However, I think we can all agree that it is doubtful that Green Arrow won’t get in on at least some of the action.
Oh, as a bonus we don’t just have the new key art which is shown above but also have the new Season 2 poster to share with you!
Are you looking forward to the return of ‘Legends of Tomorrow’? Do you wish that Queen would be signing on for the whole season? Share your thoughts below!
The second season of ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ will premiere on The CW this coming October 13th, 2016!
