In the run up to Comic-Con, newly minted showrunner Phil Klemmer spoke with Entertainment Weekly, and he didn’t mince words about the dynamics among the Legends of Tomorrow or their perceptions of their new roles…
“They’re screwups,” Klemmer says. “Instead of tiptoeing through history, they’re plodding through it, leaving their footprints and fingerprints and constantly having to wonder whether they’re going to screw the future up rather than fix it… It’s going to be total madness…”
“Who can resist the urge to correct the past or to investigate the future?” he says. “The idea of traveling through time has a caper quality to it, and that’s what we’re looking forward to. Yes, there will be the big ‘try to stop Vandal Savage’ [plot], but people will inevitably become diverted on their little side missions and when people are trying to fix their own timeline, that’s when you really start screwing things up.”
Yikes! It sounds like Arthur Darvill’s Rip Hunter may wish he could call in every incarnation of The Doctor at once just to keep things on simmer. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow debuts winter 2016 on The CW. Stay with SciFi Pulse for continuing Comic-Con coverage.
