Comic-Con@Home 2021: ‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ Promises A Wedding And A Surprising Departure In Its Near Future
by Erik Amaya
As the only Arrowverse show to present a video at Comic-Con@Home 2021, Legends of Tomorrow had to deliver the goods in terms of laughs and shocking teases. Thankfully, they filled their time with plenty of both and a lot fun conjecture about episodes they’d like to make — Jes Macallan wants to do a pastiche of Wes Anderson‘s style while Matt Ryan wants to recreate Boogie Nights. They also previewed some of the more dramatic content coming in back half of Season 6. But the big headline: Sara (Caity Lotz) and Ava (Macallan) will get married. “There will be a wedding,” executive producer and co-showrunner Keto Shimizu promised.
Although, from the sizzle reel featured at the start of the panel (embedded above), finishing the wedding will be a challenge with Bishop (Raffi Barsoumian) returning, the Legends ending up in a intergalactic bowling alley, and Constantine’s (Ryan) new magic addition leading to a Clue-inspired episode.
“If you want a happy ending for Constantine and Zari, that may not be in the cards,” executive producer and co-showrunner Phil Klemmer teased. “We want the best for Constantine, but there’s not a smooth path forward.”
Ryan, meanwhile, is relishing John’s story this year as it is 100% new material — previous years adapted stories from Hellblazer — although he did note John seems to caught in a cycle where his happy days only seem to signify a looming darkness. And in one of the more shocking reveals, Klemmer confirmed John Constantine’s journey is coming to an end this season, but Ryan will continue on next season as Gwyn Pryce — a Welshman from a century ago who is the Legends’ only hope of returning to their own era. Oh, yeah, Season 7 will see the Legends stranded in one place without their timeship or their gear. Although, a comment made by Macallan late in the panel suggests another timeship with a different crew will also be part of the plot.
Other ideas teased include an episode diving deep into Spooner’s (Lisseth Chavez) abduction and her emerging friendship with Astra (Olivia Swann), a genuine Legends album fans will be able to purchase, and a line featured in the upcoming Season 6 finale: “People change, but they don’t change.” Shimizu also teased the finale will feature more special effects than “the crossover” and resolve the wedding in a way that is “sweet” but still contain a Legends twist.
Legends of Tomorrow returns for the back half of Season 6 on August 8th. Season 7 debuts October 13th.
