The CW has released a new synopsis for season two of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
With the threat of Vandal Savage neutralized, the new season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will give the team a new mission, one that will cross paths with the Justice Society of America. Check out the full synopsis below:
”After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the corrupt Time Masters who colluded with him, a new threat emerges. Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action upon making a shocking discovery – the Legends are scattered throughout time.
Nate must find a way to rescue season one’s beloved team of heroes and rogues, including billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; and Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), aka Heat Wave, a career criminal. When the Legends encounter the J.S.A (the Justice Society of America, the precursor to DC’s Justice League) in the 1940s, Amaya Jiwe (Maisie RichardsonSellers), aka Vixen, joins the team. While the team reunites, a mystery looms – the fate of former captain Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill).
Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations – unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. When Nate, the grandson of J.S.A. member Commander Steel, unexpectedly finds himself with powers, he must overcome his own insecurities and find the hero within himself. Ultimately, the Legends will clash with foes both past and present, to save the world from a mysterious new threat.”
Nick Zano is joining the cast of the CW’s superhero drama series DC’S Legends of Tomorrow as a new series regular for Season 2. He will play Dr. Nate Heywood, a historian whose grandfather was Commander Steel, a member of the Justice Society of America.
In the comics, Nate becomes Steel/Citizen Steel, a former member of the Justice League of America. The producers of the CW series are being ambiguous whether Nate will walk in his grandfather’s super heroic footsteps but, given the superhero nature of the show, that appears almost certain.
The original Steel comic book character Henry Heywood/Commander Steel was introduced back in 1978. He should not be confused with a better known DC character, John Henry Irons, who became a Superman-influenced character calling himself Steel after the famous Death of Superman storyline in the early 90s.
Following the original Commander Steel, the WWII-set Henry Heywood, the second Steel, his grandson Hank Heywood III, was introduced in 1984 as s a member of the Justice League who was eventually killed off. That led to Nate, the third Steel, introduced in 2007 and also a grandson of the original. In the comics, Nate is a former college football star who shattered his knee and became addicted to painkillers. Later on, he was turned into a being made of “living steel” who didn’t want to be known as Commander Steel, so he’s referred to as Citizen Steel.
In DC’s New 52 reboot back in 2011, the Heywood family were relegated to Earth 2, which was introduced in the second season of the CW’s The Flash, playing a big role in that season’s plotline.
Nate Heywood is one of two new series regular roles the WBTV-produced DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is adding for Season 2 after bidding farewell to Season 1 regular Ciara Renée in the finale, while another regular cast member, Wentworth Miller, will become recurring as he will appear on both The Flash and Legends next season. In Season 2, “the composition of the team is going to change; there will be some new faces on the Waverider,” Legends co-creator/executive producer Marc Guggenheim said last month.
“The season finale planted some very significant flags in terms of what the new concept of the show will be in season 2. The team’s mission statement for Season 2 is more compelling than Season 1, and at the same time, it is more streamlined. It’s a little bit higher concept, a very clean notion that will allow the show to do things that it does best.”
Zano most recently starred on Fox’s sci-fi drama Minority Report. This marks his return to the CW where he had roles on Melrose Place and 90210. He is repped by UTA and manager John Carrabino.
