After kicking off its second season in style, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is showing no signs of slowing down. This new batch of images taken from the third episode, “Shogun,” is evidence of that.
If anything, “Shogun” looks to be a pretty cool marriage of the superhero and samurai genres and, if properly executed, should satisfy fans of both. On that note, I have to hand it to the production design team. The Vancouver area is known for its diverse locales, but to make it look like feudal Japan is quite an achievement.
In addition to the sword swinging action, viewers will also want to tune in to see the new Vixen get acquainted with the team, as well as Nate taking his first strides toward becoming Citizen Steel. This series has done a great job of presenting lesser known heroes to the masses thus far and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.
For more details, be sure to check out the official synopsis below:
SECRETS AND NEW FOUND POWERS — Nate (Nick Zano) is shocked to learn that he has powers but then accidentally lands himself and Ray (Brandon Routh) in Feudal Japan. After Sara (Caity Lotz) convinces their stowaway Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), AKA Vixen, that Rory (Dominic Purcell) is not a murderer, they all agree to find Nate and help him master his powers in order to defend the Japanese village from the Shogun and his army of samurai warriors. Meanwhile, Jax (Franz Drameh) and Stein (Victor Garber) stay back to help fix the ship and find a secret compartment but decide not to tell the rest of the team what they learn. Kevin Tancharoen directed the episode written by Phil Klemmer & Grainne Godfree (#203). Original airdate 10/27/2016.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow airs on Thursday nights on The CW.
