Following tonight’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow, The CW has released the first promo for next week’s instalment of the DC Comics series. Much of it is devoted to the team’s visit to Feudal Japan, where Ray Palmer’s Atom costume ends up being stolen, but the biggest reveal here is the small screen debut of Citizen Steel.
We’ve known for a while that Nate would undergo this transformation, but the show clearly isn’t wasting any time delving into that. Tonight’s episode saw the team meet the Justice Society of America, and among their roster was the character’s grandfather, Commander Steel. Despite that, Nate is still clearly surprised to undergo this shocking change.
For more details on what to expect from the next episode of Legends of Tomorrow, here’s the synopsis:
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.
Legends of Tomorrow has so far been pretty good fun, but it still feels like there’s room for improvement. The decision to remove Rip Hunter from the series has been an interesting one, but he’s definitely missed, and the slow burn approach to introducing the Legion of Doom (Reverse-Flash, Damien Darhk, Captain Cold, and Malcolm Merlyn) is also a tad frustrating. Hopefully things begin to pick up soon.
