DC's Legends of Tomorrow Todd Israel

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow burst onto The CW in January, 2016 – a spinoff of a spinoff (ArrowThe FlashLoT). These time-traveling legends were tasked by Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) with capturing the evil Vandal Savage. The series, which also currently stars Victor Garber, Franz Drameh, Caity Lotz, Nick Zano, Dominic Purcell, and Brandon Routh, is just bunches of fun in time-traveling giftwrap.

What strikes one most about this series, are the settings in which our heroes spiral through. That magic is spun by the equally legendary cinematography duo of David Geddes and Mahlon Todd Williams. I got the unique opportunity to speak with Mahlon last week about filming in Vancouver, how he got started, and what it’s like filming this crazy, superhero, legendary, time-traveling show.

Check out the interview below.

Legends Of Tomorrow
Season 2 Episode 3: “Shogun”
Directed by Kevin Tancharoen
Written by Phil Klemmer & Grainne Godfree
Starring Arthur Darvill, Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano
Created by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Marc Guggenheim, Phil Klemmer, Sarah Schechter
The CW
Air Date: Thursday, October 27th, 2016, 8:00pm

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, they ran into The Justice Society of America in 1942. And by “ran into” I mean “got captured by.” Nate Haywood (Nick Zano) was giddy because he met his grandfather, Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull), and tried to prove the familial connection through his dog-tags, and personal stories. We saw two of our favorite presently dead villains in the past, Eobard Thawne and Damian Darhk (Matt Letscher and Neal McDonough), in cahoots with each other and the Nazis, for nukes and a super serum. Sarah (Caity Lotz) tried to kill Darhk to prevent Laurel’s death, and Thawne ended up killing Rex Tyler (Patrick J. Adams), spurring Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) to blame Mick (Dominic Purcell).

Last week’s 2nd season premiere of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow began as all things should… with Stephen Amell. Sigh… Nick Zano‘s Dr. Nate Haywood, historian, completed the handsome party, when he went to Oliver Queen for help in finding the legends. Apparently, the Waverider was destroyed by a nuclear bomb. They find the ship, but only Mick (Dominic Purcell) aboard in stasis. Mick told them the story of the last mission. Damian Darhk did it. So happy that Neal McDonough is back! Darhk was working with the Nazis and set it off. Rip ended up scattering the crew and leaving Mick in suspension.

Air Date: Thursday, May 19th, 2016, 8:00pm

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, future Jax (Franz Drameh) told Stein (Victor Garber) that joining Rip (Arthur Darvill) was the right decision, planting the seed of drugging Jax to get him to comply from the beginning of the season. Turns out the Waverider crew were not complete bumbling idiots after all… the Time Masters had been manipulating them the entire time, in order to help Savage (Casper Crump) take over. If he doesn’t… the worse threat of aliens will win. The team defeated the Time Masters, after Snart (Wentworth Miller) sacrificed himself, after getting a goodbye kiss from Sarah (Caity Lotz). Savage escaped with Kendra and Carter (Ciara Renee and Falk Hentschel) as prisoners.

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, they had successfully captured Vandal Savage (Casper Crump). However, he played mind games and then of course escaped. Bumbling Ray (Brandon Routh) was goaded into opening the door when Savage taunted him about Kendra. They captured him again and brought him to the Time Masters… who released him and arrested the heroes, except for Sarah (Caity Lotz) and Snart (Wentworth Miller) who got away, and Jax (Franz Drameh), who had been sent back to 2016 to stop his aging process, caused by a blast of radiation.

They grab Stein, Jax, and Snart (Victor Garber, Franz Drameh, and Wentworth Miller) as babies, and bring them to a Time Master orphanage – Rip’s (Arthur Darvill) childhood home.

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, our heroes hid out in 1871, the Old West, much to Ray’s (Brandon Routh) glee. They were all having a bit of fun until the requisite bar fight, where they were saved by Jonah Hex (Jonathan Schaech), who also happenned to be an old frenemy of Rip’s (Arthur Darvill). The town was being terroroized by the Stillwater gang, and the legends wanted to put a stop to it. Rip resisted but then stepped up once Jax (Franz Drameh) got taken. Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee) met an old version of herself. Stein (Victor Garber) saved the life of a child, H.G. Wells, who was obviously influenced by the futuristic battle that takes place in front of everyone once the Time Masters showed up.

This week, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and the gang are trying to stop Vandal Savage but more importantly are running from the “Hunters”, a group of “boogeymen” sent by the Time Masters. They hide out in 1871 in the wild west town of Salvation, which has Ray (Brandon Routh) super duper excited. I love the Morricone-esque music as they ramble on into town.

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the heroes were smack in the middle of the cold war. The Soviets were trying to create their own Firestorms, capturing Stein (Victor Garber) for the prototype. Sara (Caity Lotz) almost killed him when she didn’t think she rescued him in time. Mick and Ray (Dominic Purcell and Brandon Routh) get captured and have to adjust to prison life. Ray puts himself in harm’s way for Mick, so Mick feels obligated to rescue him when Snart (Wentworth Miller) comes calling. Cue Prison Break music. Jax (Franz Drameh) totally comes through to save Stein. The bounty hunter catches up to them, hitting the ship, sending them to 2046.

Last week on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, it was 1986 and they were looking into Operation Svarog, a secret Soviet project that Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) was involved in. Ray and Snart (Brandon Routh and Wentworth Miller) teamed up to get info from this beautiful Russian madwoman, who is trying to build a Russian Firestorm. Ray strikes out, but Snart piques her interest for a while. Predictable fight ensues and half of them are captured. Sara and Hawkgirl (Caity Lotz and Ciara Renee) train as a way for Hawkgirl to control the animal within. But Sara still has limited control over herself, and is humbled. The Timemaster confronts Hunter (Arthur Darvill), offering him immunity and safe passage for the team. But it’s a lie.
