Spoilers for the Legends of Tomorrow season finale are below.
Throughout the course of Season 1, Legends of Tomorrow kept a loose leash on villain Vandal Savage as the core super-squad chased him throughout the timeline in order to put an end to his far-reaching tyranny. But if you thought Season 2 was just going to be a walk in the park where everyone plays board games and sings showtunes, then your grasp on TV is quite strange. In any case, massive threats are coming to our amateur Time Masters, according to executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
We’re all very familiar with the interconnected creative team behind the DC TV Universe using big boastful claims in order to expand audience expectations, and even though not all of them end up panning out, many do. And if Guggenheim’s hints fall into that latter bunch, then Season 2 of Legends of Tomorrow could eclipse the freshman season’s efforts in all kinds of ways.
Many thought that the Thanagarians would enter the Legends of Tomorrow universe, as they were referenced in a past episode as having invaded the planet in the future. (It admittedly did seem less likely after the Hawk-people exited the team.) And though Guggenheim doesn’t say that this new threat will be bigger than those destructive aliens, at least we know that Vandal Savage’s sometimes goofy antagonism isn’t the apex of what the titular team has to worry about dealing with.
After all, Season 2 isn’t just getting bigger and better where the villains are concerned. As seen in the finale, Hourman appeared before the group and gave us the first taste of the grand and magical adventures that are coming in the future with the Justice Society of America getting introduced, which opens up even more storylines and bad guys. And Guggenheim also told THR that having the Legends as the new timeline preservers is going to provide a lot of interesting developments on its own. Plus, the four-show crossover event coming next season is going to be epic, so if even that doesn’t overshadow everything coming at these time travelers, then it’s going to be a good year for comic fans indeed.
