Lance Henricksen who’s playing Obsidian in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, in an interview with ComicBook.com spoke of his character, who in the comics is the son of the Golden Age version of Green Lantern, Alan Scott.
We already know that Green Lantern was already within the DC TV Universe as there have been many hints of Hal Jordan and even mentioning a pilot at Ferris Air disappearing.
The idea that the Golden Age is being so well-integrated is very reassuring, as we already have Jay Garrick and Hawkman having appeared on the The CW DC television series, as well as more members of the Justice Society of America appearing soon.
It’s not said if Alan Scott will appear on the series, if he does it would be the second live action version. Smallville’s two-part episode in Season 9 called “Absolute Justice”, featured a glimpse of Alan Scott, played by Doug Pinton.
HOW MUCH OF OBSIDIAN’S COMIC BOOK HISTORY IS INTACT?
“It’s all in there. It’s all in there, every bit of it”
WILL HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH ALAN SCOTT AND GREEN LANTERN BE INCLUDED?
“Yeah, being Green Lantern’s son and all that stuff and him being gay is all in there. It’s treated, honestly, kind of ungently. It’s a real thing….Even one of my lines says ‘If you’re lucky enough to find love again, after anything has ever happened to you, well, embrace it.’ [Obsidian] says ‘Son, he’s waiting for me at home.'”
