Extended Promo And Images Chronicle DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Travelling To “Star City 2046”


Fans of superhero TV have much to look forward to next week when DC’s Legends of Tomorrow leaps thirty years into the future in the episode “Star City 2046.” The extended promo video, which can be viewed at the top, is evidence of comic book fantasies turned reality.

Not only will we see the team meet the Green Arrow of the future, Connor Hawke, but a grizzled Oliver Queen as well. Apparently Deathstroke is also wandering the post-apocalyptic streets, although it has yet to be confirmed what actor is under the mask. Manu Bennett has been wrapped up in other projects lately and no announcement was made concerning his reprisal of the role, so don’t be too surprised if the world’s deadliest assassin doesn’t shed his mask.

Speaking of two Green Arrows, producer Marc Guggenheim recently said the following (via Collider):

“We’re not only introducing our version of Connor Hawke to our universe, we’re going to meet the 2046 version of Oliver Queen, and Stephen Amell is going to be reprising his role from Arrow. As an added bonus to comic-book fans, Oliver is missing his left arm and will be sporting a goatee, in a nod to the character’s appearance in the seminal Dark Knight Returns. We think this episode features some of the coolest things we’ve ever done.”

On that note, actor Stephen Amell took to Twitter and shared the following images. First, let’s get a look at the inspiration as seen in The Dark Knight Returns.

Now, we’re treated to a look at an aged, bearded Oliver.

Finally, we get a look at Connor and Oliver face to face, albeit draped in shadow.

For more information, check out the official synopsis below:

When a malfunction sends the Waverider crashing into 2046 Star City, our heroes face a startling version of their own future where they never stop Savage (guest star Casper Crump) and never return home. The city is in ruins and overrun by criminals, which thrills Rory (Dominic Purcell). Sara (Caity Lotz) is despondent over the destruction of her home and stunned when she learns what happened to her old friend, Oliver Queen (guest star Stephen Amell). Steve Shill directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Ray Utarnachitt (#106). Original airdate 2/25/16.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursday nights at 8:00 pm EST on The CW.
