First Look at Old Man Oliver in DC's Legends of Tomorrow
Last month, it was confirmed that fans will get to see a much different version of Arrow star Stephen Amell, who will appear as a future version of Oliver Queen in an upcoming episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, entitled Star City 2046. Last week, we caught a quick glimpse of a much older Oliver in a trailer for the episode, which airs one week from today on Thursday, February 25. Today we have our best look at the older Green Arrow yet. Stephen Amell posted these images on his Twitter and Facebook pages, one of which is quite intriguing.
The third image features six Legends of Tomorrow stars, White Canary (Caity Lotz), Atom (Brandon Routh), Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), Hawkman (Falk Hentschel), Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee) and Firestorm (Franz Drameh), along with Stephen Amell as the older Oliver and a mystery guest. Oliver is facing this unknown character, who is seen with a quiver of arrows strapped to his back. But we can't quite make out who he is. The actor even teased fans by saying there are two Green Arrows in this photo. Could this be our first look at Connor Hawke?
It has previously been confirmed that this episode will introduce Connor Hawke, who, in the comics, is the son of Oliver Queen. The October report claimed that this version of Connor won't be Oliver's son, but since both Connor and Oliver will be appearing in the same episodes, it's possible that they may be father and son in the TV universe after all. The network hasn't announced who is playing Connor Hawke quite yet, but hopefully we'll find out soon, since this episode is just a few weeks away. Last month, Marc Guggenheim revealed that the future Oliver is missing his left arm and will be sporting a goatee, in a nod to the character's appearance in the seminal Dark Knight Returns. Upon closer inspection of these new photos, it seems that Oliver has some sort of a mechanical arm in place.
When a malfunction sends the Waverider crashing into 2046 Star City, our heroes face a startling version of their own future where they never stop Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) and never return home. The city is in ruins and overrun by criminals, which thrills Rory (Dominic Purcell). Sara (Caity Lotz) is despondent over the destruction of her home and stunned when she learns what happened to her old friend, Oliver Queen (guest star Stephen Amell). Steve Shill directed the episode written by Marc Guggenheim & Ray Utarnachitt.
It has also been confirmed that Arrow villain Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) and Ra's al Ghul (Matthew Nable) will be appearing on the series at some point, along with The Flash's Cisco Ramon (Carlos Valdes). The site also claims there is a "very strong chance" that either a younger or older version of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin) may surface on the series as well. Since the series is just getting started, don't be surprised to hear about more Arrow and The Flash stars coming aboard. Take a look at these new photos, and stay tuned for more on DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
