DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Show-Runner Phil Klemmer Talks Season 2

As we previously reported Slashfilm spoke with Marc Guggenheim about what we can expect from the next season of DC’s Legends of TomorrowIn the same interview they also spoke with show-runner and co-creator Phil Klemmer on what will kick the new season off. 


“We will be doing these iconic historical moments with recognizable historical figures,” Klemmer said. “To me, we had little things like H.G. Wells and we had a little shoutout to Bill Gates at a certain point. Season two, you’re going to see the icons of the 20th century. You’re going to have those versions of the Forrest Gump kind of moments with our guys trying to fix history but at the same time getting to play a part in these recognizable eras.”


Right away in the season premiere, Legends will go so far back that it could cause problems for the rest of the season. “We will do deep prehistory,” Klemmer continued. “We will touch on a handful of places that you have never ever been to on network television or otherwise. We’ll spend the rest of the seasons trying to pay for it.”

My name is Eric and I am loving this current comic book boom, I was around for the first one with Superman: The Movie, Supergirl(being the first female and crossover film) and Batman and have been enjoying the resurgence since Blade. Can't express how much I cannot wait for WB & DC to take back the film universe but until than I love the TV shows we have gotten. I only started reading comics about 10 years ago but am connected more to DC over Marvel or any other major company. If you wanna chat feel free to contact me
