‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’: SDCC Panel Intros New Characters, Cast Changes & More!
Over the weekend, ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow‘ held a virtual panel at SDCC’s [email protected], which revealed some interesting new cast changes, including one character (but not the actor) leaving the Waverider, and another long-standing cast member getting more screentime! Obviously, there are some spoilers for what is to come in the series, so consider yourselves warned!
The first big reveal – John Constantine will be leaving the Waverider… However, Matt Ryan is not! “While John Constantine’s arc on the show is coming to an end in season six, Matt Ryan’s journey with the Legends is not over,” commented co-showrunner Phil Klemmer. Ryan will return in season seven in a new original series regular as Dr. Gwyn Davies, an eccentric scientist from the early 20th century who might be the team’s only hope next season.
“As everyone who loves him knows, in the end, John Constantine will walk his path alone,” added Ryan. “The time has come for John to part ways with the Legends, and for me to part ways with John. I’m really excited to be creating this new role on the show and having some fun with it – discovering how this new character fits in and causes some trouble for the Legends.”
The second reveal – Amy Louise Pemberton will be joining the crew as a series regular. You may not know Pemberton by name, but you do know her voice, as she has played Gideon, the Waverider’s AI, for all six seasons. Now, Gideon is set to get an actual flesh-and-blood body, as she plays Gideon in the real world!
Lastly, Legends fans will now have the opportunity to immerse themselves even further into the series’ musical craziness with a 21-track “Mixtape” of the show’s most memorable musical moments. Whether it’s the David Bowie-inspired “Space Girl” from the current season, or Brandon Routh’s “Mr. Parker’s Cul-De-Sac” from season five, or any of the cast performances of “Puppets of Tomorrow,” “I Surrender,” or “Sweet Baby James,” fans can find their favourites on the “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Mixtape (Songs from the Original Television Soundtrack).” Available on Spotify, iTunes, YouTube, Amazon, and more, the album will be released on 20th August 2021.
‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow‘ Season 6 is currently airing on Sky One in the UK, and The CW in the USA.
