The Flash – Victor Garber Talks Season 2 Premiere/Legends of Tomorrow – Episode Order and Other Details Revealed
The veteran actor, already cast as half of Firestorm in the Flash/Arrow spinoff Legends of the Tomorrow, on Thursday confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter his return to The Flash. He will be teamed with Robbie Amell, the DC Comics character Ronnie Raymond and the other half of Firestorm in the season two premiere.
“Robbie and I will be joined on the first episode of the (next) season of The Flash, and then we’ll see what happens,” Garber said. That leaves Amell not joining CW’s Legends of Tomorrow universe as a series regular, though he’s expected to make an appearance.
Fans have questioned how Amell would remain on The Flash while Garber would move to Legends of Tomorrow, given that their characters operate as a unit.
All will be explained by upcoming episodes of Arrow and The Flash, Garber assured, which set up the spin-off Legends of Tomorrow, with time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter, played by Arthur Darvill, assembling a dysfunctional family of heroes and villains to battle the immortal villain Vandal Savage.
And if all goes to plan, look for the next chapter in CW’s superhero universe to be an on-going series, with an initial 15 episodes of Legends of Tomorrow ordered and to debut as part of the network’s 2016 mid-season lineup. “They (CW) aren’t going to introduce a limited series. This isn’t HBO. They want the Full Monty,” Garber said.
