Last night it was announced that Suits actor Patrick J. Adams had been cast as a mysterious DC character who’s set to make his debut in the season finale of The CW’s Legends Of Tomorrow, and now, thanks to a new rumor from Bleeding Cool, we might just know who it is.
All we had to go on prior to this was a hint that the mysterious hero would be a “fun character the fans will love,” and should this turn out to be true, that’s certainly accurate: word is Adams will be playing none other than original ’40s era Green Lantern, Alan Scott.
Scott was reinvented for DC’s New 52 as a much younger man, who also happened to be gay. This would be a great opportunity for The CW to introduce another LGBT character, but it remains to be seen if they go with that version – or if this rumor pans out at all for that matter.
We’ll find out for sure when the Legends of Tomorrow season finale airs on May 19th.
