After all the CW panels, we got to speak with Legends of Tomorrow creator/executive producers Phil Klemmer and Marc Guggenheim further. We were able to delve deeper into what the Justice Society of America has in store for the Legends and what other time periods they might visit in the Waverider this season. Read More »

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returned to San Diego Comic-Con for their second season. We interviewed producers Phil Klemmer and Marc Guggenheim in roundtable interviews, in which Klemmer revealed that season two will portray major historical figures on the time travel show.
“We will be doing these iconic historical moments with recognizable historical figures,” Klemmer said. “To me, we had little things like H.G. Wells and we had a little shoutout to Bill Gates at a certain point. Season two, you’re going to see the icons of the 20th century. You’re going to have those versions of the Forrest Gump kind of moments with our guys trying to fix history but at the same time getting to play a part in these recognizable eras.” Read More »

Legends of Tomorrow is the latest show from DC Comics. They have a good track record with Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl, and producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg remain involved. Phil Klemmer is the showrunner for this one, and /Film got to sit down with him after a panel for the Television Critics Association.
Legends unites Arrowverse characters Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller), Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), Carter Hall (Falk Hentschel), Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renee), Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson Jackson (Franz Drameh).
