Recently it was announced that Arrow, The Flash, and [DC's Legends of Tomorrow](tag:2937021) have all been renewed for another season. And that's really good, because Legends of Tomorrow is a very expensive show, so it almost didn't get a second season. But for a while, it was rumored that Matt Ryan would become a main cast member for the show's second season, and this would be great, because if this happens, they would have an easy way to end the Constantine series, and the big cliffhanger that has never been solved.

At the end of season 1 of Constantine, and correct me if I'm wrong, it was revealed that Manny the Angel was the one who lead the Brujería, who were the ones to control the "Rising Darkness," which let Demons onto Earth. John Constantine, Zed Martin, and Chas Chandler were the ones trying to stop this.

That was the basic plot for the first season, and it never even got to be finished or continued. But I think the show could have a proper ending, by having Legends of Tomorrow season 2 go dark and mystical, and have this be the plot for the season.

In season 1 of LoT, the plot is this: Rip Hunter travels back in time to assemble a team to stop Vandal Savage from taking over the world. I'm guessing that the team will stop Savage, and most of the team will go back to their normal time period, 2016, and be heroes there, or really then. It has been revealed that the cast will shift around, and we'll get different characters every season. So what if season 2 could have Constantine, Zed, and Chas?

I titled this article "Justice League Dark..." because Constantine, Zed, and Chas shouldn't be the only magical characters to be included. The Spectre has already been introduced, and Doctor Fate's helmet was shown. Also, Zatanna and Swamp Thing both were set to appear on Constantine, before the show got cancelled. I think all of these characters would make great additions to the show, and would take the show a different way.

The show could introduce others like Sandman, Deadman, Raven, Ragman, or Lucifer Morningstar from Lucifer, if that show gets canceled, because that's what I'm thinking will happen. The show could include other Constantine characters in an episode or multi-episode arc, like Papa Midnite, Doctor Mist (Nommo), or Felix Faust or even his son, Sebastian Faust.

So, in a handful, my idea is that season 2 of LoT would see a new team of Legends (with the exception of Rip Hunter and maybe one or two returning characters, like the ATOM or White Canary), which could include Constantine, Zed, Chas, Spectre, Doctor Fate, Raven, Zatanna, Swamp Thing, and Deadman (these are my top members), and it would be about the team trying to stop Manny the Angel, and the "Rising Darkness" . The show would basically be Justice League Dark, for a season.

This would offer the chance to finish off Constantine, and all those characters' stories. And even though the season likely won't be this, it still wouldn't be a bad idea. Season 2 will probably have characters like Constantine, Vixen, Connor Hawke, and many others, but it'd still be cool to see any of these. And it's still cool to see more of Matt Ryan as the petty dabbler of the dark arts.

But what do you think? Do you want to see a Justice League Dark-like season for Legends of Tomorrow? Who do you want to see in LoT season 2? Please, let me know!
