As if you weren't already excited enough that Arrow and The Flash are returning in the next two weeks, now we've also got the pilot for the new spin-off, Legends of Tomorrow, arriving a fortnight from now. If you haven't seen the brilliant trailers, then here is one to remind you just how brilliant this show is set to be!
Now, if you want an amazing cast, chock-full of heroes and villains from the DC universe, you're in luck. We have A.T.O.M., Firestorm, Hawkman, Hawkgirl, White Canary, Captain Cold, Heatwave, Rip Hunter, Vandal Savage, and guest appearances from the likes of Arrow and The Flash, assumedly. It is going to be an absolutely amazing show already. And it just got better!
Well, you all remember the epic Joss Whedon sci-fi western show Firefly, right? It is famous for being cancelled after only one season, with millions of fans wishing there had been more. There was such outcry that it went on to get a sequel film, entitled Serenity. Since then, many of the cast members have gone on to do very well, while some have fallen into relative obscurity. However, it is always an absolute treat to see any of them popping up, especially in pop culture shows and films. And now we get another one!
That's right! Kaylee Frye herself is coming to Legends of Tomorrow as a guest star, and it's going to be awesome! Since starring in Firefly and Serenity, she has gone on to star in TV shows Stargate: Atlantis and The Killing.
Her role in Legends of Tomorrow is set to be in episode 10 of the season, and she is called Rachel Turner. She has been described as "a tech genius/roboticist who exists in a future in which technology has an even firmer grip on our lives than it does today." Check her out in this short scene from Firefly.
In addition to this, we know that she will come from a long line of inventors in this universe, and despite all of the great geniuses and inventors we have already seen on Arrow and The Flash, it has to be remembered that we also saw Ben Turner a.k.a. Bronze Tiger, who appeared on Arrow. While he wasn't an inventor, having two Turners does make it seem a little bit suspicious. Having said that, none of the team in Legends has a real connection to Ben, so it is much more likely to be someone like Cisco Ramone's descendant, or possibly Martin Stein's, who is actually on the team. Regardless of who Rachel is related to, she is going to be there, so watch out for her!
