Legends of Tomorrow Adds Suits Star as Surprise DC Character
As we announced earlier this month, Legends of Tomorrow is set to introduce an iconic DC Comics character in the Season 1 finale. This character will set up events, and play a key role in Legends of Tomorrow Season 2. We still don't know who this secret character is. But now we know who is playing him.
Patrick J. Adams, best known for his starring role in the USA series Suits, will become a major player in Legends of Tomorrow Season 2. This mysterious DC character is set to arrive in the final moments of the climactic season finale, airing in just a few weeks. A source close to production won't spill the beans on exactly what will transpire. But they did have this to say about Patrick J. Adams' inclusion on the hit CW show.
"[He's a] fun character the fans will love."
DC's Legends of Tomorrow was recently renewed for Season 2 by The CW. Patrick J. Adams will appear in both the finale, titled Legendary, as well as the DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 premiere this fall. New episodes of DC's Legends of Tomorrow are currently airing Thursdays at 8pm, only on The CW.
So, who is Patrick J. Adams playing? The heavy speculation is pointing towards Booster Gold. The character is rumored to be getting his own DCEU big screen movie alongside Blue Beetle, but that has never been confirmed by DC and Warner Bros. There had also been talk that Booster Gold was getting is own TV show. DC's Legends of Tomorrow is half-way through its first season, with upcoming episodes promising to introduce such legendary comic book characters as Jonah Hex, Sgt. Rock, Ma Hunkel (aka the Golden Age version of Red Tornado), Hourman and Sandman.
Booster Gold is a time-traveling super-hero from the 25th Century who uses high-tech equipment to fight crime, alongside his robotic side-kick Skeets. His best friend and most regular partner is Blue Beetle. Not taken very seriously by his peers because of a careless and somewhat egotistical attitude, he is frequently under-estimated. Briefly taking the alias Supernova during 52, he begins secretly working with Rip Hunter as a guardian of the timestream. With Rip Hunter already a key part of Legends of Tomorrow, and the time traveling elements pretty heavy, it definitely sounds like Booster Gold is who we'll be seeing this April.
