'Legends of Tomorrow' Sizzle Reel Reveals Jonah Hex, Talia al Ghul and More Surprises

Jonah Hex is coming to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. New episodes return Thursday, March 31 on The CW.
At this weekend's Wondercon in Los Angeles, attendees for the 'Legend of Tomorrow' panel got a first look at the sizzle reel for the second half of the show's first season. The video featured a look ahead including the first glimpse of Johnathon Schaech as DC Comics' infamous scarred-face bounty hunter Jonah Hex.


"Progeny" Rip (Arthur Darvill) tells the team they are headed to the future to take out a powerful ally that Savage (guest star Casper Crump) needs in order to conquer the world.  However, when Rip reveals the ally is a 14 year-old boy (guest star Cory Gruter-Andrew) who will one day grow into an evil dictator, the team is split about the morality of killing a child, even if it does save the world.  Meanwhile, Sara (Caity Lotz) talks Snart (Wentworth Miller) through a rough patch and Ray (Brandon Routh) learns something that could impact his future with Kendra (Ciara Renée).  David Geddes directed the episode written by Phil Klemmer and Marc Guggenheim (#110).

Quentin Lance, Felicity Smoak, Ra's al Ghul, Nyssa and a young Talia al'Ghul all make an appearance in the montage of upcoming episodes. Jewel Staite's role remains a mystery as we only get a brief look at her. 

Executive producer Marc Guggenheim and cast members Ciara Renee (Kendra/Hawkgirl), Brandon Routh (Ray/Atom), Caity Lotz (Sara/White Canary), and Franz Drameh (Jax/Firestorm) appeared on the panel discussing the state of the show and where it's headed. 
 "At the end of this season, you will get a definitive end of this chapter. You'll get an answer about whether or not the team succeeds to stop Vandal Savage. You'll get a resolution of the love triangle. You'll get to know more about what the Time Masters are up to. I don't think there are too many unanswered questions at the end of this season."
Guggenheim went on to explain his motivation for choosing Vandal Savage as the main villain.
"There was an issue of Flash from Volume 1 where Vandal is punching The Flash and kicking the Green Lantern, and that was one of the first comic books I owned. It made an incredible impression on me."

When asked who the cast would like to see join "Legends?" "I'd love to see more girls," Renée said. "I'd love it if Vixen could be on." Routh mentioned John Constantine and Vixen. "I think it'd be awesome if Killer Frost came back and was on our show," Routh said. "A rogue woman character." "I think we need some Speedy," Lotz said, referencing Arrow's Thea Queen (Willa Holland). "And I like Iris West." 

Guggenheim agreed that "we definitely need more women on the show. Megalyn [Euchikunwoke] is welcome on any of the shows, anytime she wants," Guggenheim reassured the audience.

 Legends of Tomorrow returns on Thursday, March 31, at 8:00pm on The CW.

REVIEW: 'Redneck' #2 by Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, and Dee Cunniffe

'Redneck' arrived a month ago redefining the vampire genre by not giving into convention or cliché. In fact, if you've read the first two issues, the vampire angle serves more as subtext than its selling point. It's the perfect approach to this character-driven southern fried drama that simmers with tension and intrigue.

★★★★☆ (4/5)
The Bowman's way of life just got upended and what was once a peaceful and secluded existence is on the verge of war. The vampires of Texas keep to themselves, raise their cattle, drink its blood and sell the meat through their BBQ joint. Seems like a brilliant front to keep them in the shadows while staking out a living. All that is threatened when one of their own is killed after a night on the town. This issues fills in the holes to what might have happened and what the hell is…

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

REVIEW: 'Death or Glory' #2 by Rick Remender and Bengal

After a raucous debut, 'Death and Glory' takes a weird turn. Like a really weird turn. Imagine David Lynch and Quentin Tarantino had a baby and out came out issue two of this new series from Rick Remender and Bengal. The question is is that a good or bad thing?


DEATH OR GLORY #2  
Writer: Rick Remender Artist: Bengal Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: June 6, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
With a botched heist job, a bullet in her side, and all her money gone, Glory wrestles with what to do next. The cargo her ex-husband was trafficking wasn't drugs but people and after putting them all safely on a bus to Arizona, she's broke and being attended to by one of the Brazilians that stayed behind. Her scheme was pretty straight-forward - rob the money that the dirty sheriff was going to transport and use it for her dad's surgery. Easy peasy. Then it all went to hell as the sheriff recognized her, she dropped the money, and now no one is happy, not the sheri…
