For some time now fans of the CW’s Legends of Tomorrow have been wondering who will join the team of heroes aboard the Wave Rider. After the departure of Jefferson “Jax” Jackson and the death of Martin Stein it has been a mystery who will replace their combined superhero alter ego, Firestorm. Many had come to believe that Matt Ryan’s Constantine would join the roster after he appears in an upcoming episode this season, but recent reports have cast some doubt on this theory. Now, however, we may have some confirmation of who will be joining the Legends, Kid Flash.
According to a report from DiscussingFilm, they have gathered substantial evidence that Kid Flash will be joining Legends of Tomorrow. It has long been theorized that Kid Flash would move from The Flash to Legends of Tomorrow after the character’s long absence during this season.
Along with the report from DiscussingFilm, we also have a recent comment from the CW president himself Mark Pedowitz who has teased Kid FLash’s appearance on the show. In a recent interview with Black Girl Nerds Pedowitz commented that many possible heroes could join the Legends, including Wally West. Pedowitz stated,
“As we’ve lost some characters this season, you will see new ones pop up,” Pedowitz said. “He’s [Drameh] an incredible actor, but you might see Wally West show up on Legends.”
So based on these new reports concerning Wally West it now seems rather likely he will be the newest member of the Legends. However, for now, until we have official confirmation we should take this report with a grain of salt.
