Legends Of Tomorrow Breakdowns Tease New Additions To The Cast


With shooting on various series making up the Arrowverse set to commence next month, it’s only natural that casting for the next additions to the pantheon get underway. In the case of Legends of Tomorrow, the producers are seemingly wasting no time filling some vacated bunks aboard the Waverider.

So, as Keiynan Lonsdale readies his exit, thereby forcing Wally West to bounce, it appears as though a young woman currently being referred to as “Ali” will fill his slot. You see, the folks at That Hashtag Show have learned about this mysterious gal, saying the following:

She is somewhere in her 20s as a young woman who is searching deeply for her mission in life. Teased as a mega-intelligent and sharp as heck person, “Ali” tends to sometimes be a little aloof and being too distracted by her own imagination as well as romantic impulses. She loves YA literature as well as fantasy novels hence her hunger and curiosity for adventures. Despite her disappointment with the state of the world, “Ali” continues to keep an optimistic head as much as possible with any situation that she faces. “Ali” also has a deep love for animals as she believes each animal has a purpose to fulfill on our planet.

Much like us, the outlet isn’t ruling out “Ali” being a pseudonym for a well known DC character, but anything’s possible at this point, for the producers certainly aren’t opposed to making their own additions to the mythos. Let it also be known that she’ll be a series regular, so expect to see a lot of her.

Next up is none other than Hank Heywood, father of Nate. As you may recall, the two were said to have endured a tumultuous relationship, so expect to see that thread be paid off, for whomever lands this particular role will be around on a recurring basis.

Here’s what to anticipate when it comes to this guy:

He is somewhere in his 60s and while he is loved by many, his son Nate is not one of them. Their relationship is a very mixed one as Hank is always on his son’s back for not doing more with his life. Having served in the military, Hank is now working for the Department of Defense. Carrying a Woody Harrelson-y charm, Hank takes traditional values very seriously such as patriotism and sacrifice. But he isn’t being a dick about his beliefs and while Nate may have had his list of failures in life; Hank loves his son as much as a father possibly could.

Legends of Tomorrow returns for its fourth season on Monday nights this fall on The CW, and we can’t wait to see what these two will add to the equation.
