'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: 'Cyber Force' #3 by Bryan Hill, Matt Hawkins, and Atilio Rojo

The story of Aphrodite is the focus of 'Cyber Force' #3. This compelling chapter continues to build the new world of Top Cow's reimagined original title. Corporate greed leads to murder and coercion until one doctor's obsession results in a powerful revelation.


CYBER FORCE #3 
Writer: Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill Artist: Atilio Rojo Letterer: Troy Peteri Editor: Elena Salcedo Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: May 30, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
Marc Silvestri released 'Cyber Force' twenty-six years ago and this second reboot of the former flagship series rests in the hands of writers Bryan Hill and Matt Hawkins. It was only a matter of time before we'd get the whereabouts of the sentient android Aphrodite. Hill and Hawkins dedicate this issue to her story, and it's probably the best in the series so far. We get very little Carin and Morgan in order to give what is essentially an unnerving scientific horror story. 
Cyber Data is the or…

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: 'Cyber Force' #2 by Matt Hawkins, Bryan Hill, and Atilio Rojo

As Carin becomes accustomed to her new abilities, Stryker is determined to keep her out of the line of fire. He knows these "gifts" come at a price. Meanwhile, The Accuser recruits a dangerous ally.

Score: ★★★★☆ (4/5)
Matt Hawkins and Bryan Hill set the foundation in issue one with the explosive and destructive arrival of The Accuser. In her wake was the shattered body of Stryker, who along with his paraplegic daughter, get an extraordinary chance to become not only whole again but enhanced. Carin has taken to her powerful working legs with enthusiasm and joy. Stryker not so much because he knows they're being used by C.O.I.It's an uneasy arrangement but origin stories are rarely simple and carefree. Whether one's powers are considered a gift or a curse, there is a price to pay i…
