Tonight’s edition of Legends of Tomorrow, after the team went toe to toe with Mallus, Damien Darhk, and time itself, the show followed in the footsteps of Arrow, who famously mentioned Gotham City and Bruce Wayne a number weeks ago, and dropped another HUGE DC reference. This one mentioning the land in which Wonder Woman protects.
That’s right folks, Themyscria exists within the Arrowverse.
*****SPOILERS FOR LEGENDS OF TOMORROW*****
After Helen of Troy gets a glimpse of what life could be like with women have more opportunities other than just being fought over and trophies, she urges Zara to not return her to her own time. Zari “hacks time” and finds the time period within the Trojan War where Helen disappears, however, her disappearance does not affect the outcome of the war and its affect on history.
Zara decides to fly Helen to an island on which boys are not allowed, filled with warrior women.
The cast actually had a lot to say about this occurrence during a recent interview with ComicBook.com.
“I love it,” Tala Ashe, who plays Zari, said. “It really works for the story, and I think in general the next episode is very female-strong, and so it’s appropriate I think that that’s the last moment you see in the episode.”
“It was cool, really cool. So Gal Gadot is coming on the show,” Caity Lotz, who plays Sara Lance, said.
“I think it’s awesome!” Maisie Richardson-Sellers, who plays Amaya Jiwe/Vixen, exclaimed. “Yeah, I mean. That’s what I love about the comic book world, is when you can tap in to different worlds, like Constantine, it’s going to be fantastic as well. And just sort of mixing up, you know, we saw Wally West at our first episode, and so it’s just really playful to be able to jump around, and I think Wonder Woman has paved the way brilliantly, proving that female focused movies and TV shows can be a huge success. So I think that was a very affectionate shout out. I liked it.”
Realistically, neither Batman or Wonder Woman are likely to show up in the Arrowverse anytime soon, but it is exciting to see the CW programs make mention of their film counterparts. This is confirmation that the BIG THREE (Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, now exist within the continuity of the shows.
Legends of Tomorrow airs on The CW Tuesdays at 9/8c.
