Fans have been waiting for this moment for a long time now, and this week’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow will finally introduce the Justice Society of America to the Arrowverse. Can we have a heck yeah?!
In a new video featurette introduced by executive producer Marc Guggenheim (and released by the good folks at The CW), the Legends and the JSA meet for the first time and … let’s just say, sparks fly between the two superhero teams. And not in a good way.
Titled “The Justice Society of America,” the new episode sees Stargirl (Sarah Grey), Obsidian (Dan Payne), Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull), Dr. Mid-Nite (Kwesi Ameyaw), the new/old Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and Patrick J. Adams’ Hourman (who was first introduced in the Season 1 finale) meet with our Legends, who can’t wait to leave 1942 behind. But the JSA has other things in mind, and they've no intention of letting the crew of the Waverider fly away. I believe finding the darkest hole and throwing away the key was mentioned?
The episode airing tomorrow was penned by Chris Fedak and Sarah Nicole Jones, with Michael Grossman on helming duties. Guggenheim said that: “It begins as all superhero matchups have to begin with—an epic fight between the Legends of Tomorrow and the Justice Society of America.” Check out the video below, and let us know if you're looking forward to the introduction of the JSA.
TEAM WORK — The Legends travel to Nazi-occupied Paris, but find themselves surrounded by the Justice Society of America (AKA JSA.) The Legends discover a time aberration that threatens the JSA, but the JSA wants nothing to do with them or their help. Nevertheless, the Legends force their way into the JSA’s mission to intercept and seize a mysterious package. Nate (Nick Zano) is desperate to prove that he should be part of the team, but he has a secret that he shares with his grandfather Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull) that might make it difficult. Ray (Brandon Routh) is so focused on impressing the JSA, he puts himself and Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) in danger. Meanwhile, Stein (Victor Garber) has stepped in as the leader with Rip (Arthur Darvill) gone, but when decisions aren’t being made Sara (Caity Lotz) seems to be the one calling the shots. Dominic Purcell and Franz Drameh also star.
