Thanks to a brand new featurette released by The CW, we have been granted a deeper look into tonight’s episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which bears the foreboding title “Marooned.”
To this point, we have seen the ragtag crew of heroes and villains journey to various time periods, but what makes this episode so special is that we will see them venture into space. You really have to love how the show fearlessly and unashamedly embraces so many comic book and science fiction elements.
As you may have guessed, the team will run into some trouble, this time in the form of time pirates. Expect an unlikely hero to emerge in the form of Professor Martin Stein. Sure, Firestorm is probably the most powerful member of the team, but it’s nice to see half of its human side display great courage.
Executive Producer and showrunner Phil Klemmer had this to say about that very topic:
“Rip, Rory and Jax are thrown into the pirate’s brig, with nobody to save them except for the most unlikely action hero imaginable: Professor Stein. It turns out that for a 60-something [year old man] he’s kind of a bad ass.”
For more details, check out the official synopsis below:
PIRATE ATTACK — After receiving a distress call from another timeship stranded in space, Rip (Arthur Darvill) decides to answer the call in order to use the other ship’s computer to track Savage (guest star Casper Crump). The team is suspicious and warns him this could be a trap but he moves forward with his plan. Ultimately, the team was right and they have to battle time pirates. With most of the team captured, it is up to Professor Stein (Victor Garber) to rescue them all.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursday nights at 8:00 pm EST on The CW.
