The Legion of Super-Heroes May Be Visiting One of DC’s Shows
"More than a hint may be on the way."
Earlier this week Variety
revealed that Legends of Tomorrow
would be getting a visit from Old West bounty hunter Jonah Hex, but DCTV might be set to introduce characters from the far flung future as well.

After The CW's Legends of Tomorrow
panel at the Television Critics Association winter press tour over the weekend, DC Entertainment CCO Geoff Johns told reporters that “a hint of the [Legion of Super-Heroes]” will be seen on one of DC’s shows, adding that he "[loves] the Legion...and hopefully [they’ll] get them out there soon."
From his comment, Gotham
, The Flash
, and Legends of Tomorrow
are all fair game for this "hint." However, some series are more obvious choices than others for the team's potential physical introduction. DC might be hesitant to "retread" old ground by having the Legion of Super-Heroes interact with another member of the Super Family, as Johns wrote the Smallville
episode “Legion” (which saw the live-action debut of team members Saturn Girl, Lightning Lad, and Cosmic Boy), and the Legion played a huge role in Clark’s development on the animated Legion of Super-Heroes
. However, Supergirl
might be wanting for a new love interest by the time the team is green-lit for an appearance, so we may very well see the storied pairing of Braniac 5 and Kara Zor-El. Countering all of that, though, Legends of Tomorrow
’s time travel focus (and larger scope than The Flash
) makes it the more logical choice.
