Ray Palmer and Nora Darhk

It was just announced that Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford will be exiting Legends of Tomorrow as series regulars. The couple took to their social media to express their disappointment and understanding, both sharing remarkably kind and on-brand messages in light of the news. This kind of thing happens in television, especially in shows like Legends. Though, even with that in mind, the departure of these two particular characters is a tough pill to swallow.

Conceptually, Legends of Tomorrow is… odd. Its first season brings together supporting heroes and villains from The Flash and Arrow and sends them tumbling through time, including (but not limited to) petty thieves Heatwave and Captain Cold (Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller of Prison Break, playing off each other in deliciously operatic fashion), scientist Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and car mechanic Jefferson ‘Jax’ Jackson (Franz Drameh), who combine to form a single, flame-headed nuclear superhero F.I.R.E.S.T.O.R.M., undead assassin The White Canary (Caity Lotz), John Constantine (Matt Ryan; yes, that John Constantine) and boyscout superhero Ray Palmer/The Atom, played by none other than Brandon Routh of Superman Returns.

Full disclosure: the first season leaves a lot to be desired. It’s a messy, dour collection of decent-to-good character moments focusing on an underwhelming villain, Vandal Savage (Casper Crump, who performs admirably) on the heels of two equally underwhelming heroes, Hawkman (Falk Hentschel) and Hawk-Girl (Ciara Renée), but the reason I’m keen to write about Legends is because its second season is functionally a soft reboot. The show changes up its structure entirely, leaning hard in to the inherent ridiculousness of inept superheroes given the ability to travel anywhere in history. I mean, why wouldn’t they go hang out with J.R.R. Tolkien during World War I?

Ruby Rose will be The CW’s Batwoman. In a piece of pitch-perfect casting, the gender-fluid and openly gay actress will be playing the lesbian caped crusader in The CW’s ever-expanding Arrowverse.

Rose is set to first don Kate Kane’s mask and fiery red wig in this fall’s Arrowverse crossover event before headlining her own solo series currently in development at the network.

Bigger CW Crossover Expected For DC Shows Next Season

The Flash Supergirl

Last year there was a crossover between Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow. The crossover event, titled “Invasion!”, began with Supergirl and ended with Legends of Tomorrow, with The Flash and Arrow nice and comfy around the middle. The heroes teamed up to defeat the Dominators, but little of the action was featured in Supergirl, so it wasn’t the huge four-way crossover some fans were anticipating.

Below, learn why you should expect a bigger CW crossover next time.
