The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow is taking full advantage of its time-traveling premise, and now the series will be heading to the future of Arrow — 30 years into the future, in fact.
The upcoming Feb. 25 episode will take the gang to Star City circa 2046, where a “hard, jaded” version of Oliver Queen gets the drop on the gang. This looks to be a dark alternate future where Vandal Savage has won, and we get to see the classic, goateed (and one-armed, reportedly, though he seems to have both arms in the pics below) version of Oliver from DC Comics’ Dark Knight Returns.
Stephen Amell has debuted some pics from the episode, which feature Old Man Oliver, a future Deathstroke (probably) and apparent Green Arrow-in-training Connor Hawke. Legends is basically pure geek-out fantasy (in a good way), and if they manage to pull this off, it could be one of the most fascinating DC/CW episodes of the year (right up there with The Flash’s recent “Welcome to Earth-2”).
