It looks like Season 2 of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is set to have the man who started it all as Stephen Amell guests in the first episode as Oliver Queen AKA Green Arrow.
The images also feature a few familiar faces alongside new series regular Nick Zano as Dr. Nate Herywood AKA Citizen Steel and also… Albert Einstein?!
It’s back on October 13th and we’re so excited it’s a little embarrassing…
In related news…
Amell has teased playing three versions of Oliver Queen in Arrow Season 5 and it has a lot of people wondering if it could tie into The Flash’s Flashpoint arc?
Wrapped episode 97 last night. Most times I get to play two versions of Oliver. This time? Three. pic.twitter.com/D7ri72K235

It might just mean that while we normally see Oliver in the modern day and Oliver on the island (or whatever time period he’s in) we may see him in two different time periods.
In the Flashpoint story Oliver is the head of weapons manufacturer Green Arrow Industires who makes his money by stealing tech from villains and turning it into weapons.
Whatever it turns out to be, we’re looking forward to it.
After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the corrupt Time Masters who colluded with him, a new threat emerges. Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action upon making a shocking discovery – the Legends are scattered throughout time. Nate must find a way to rescue season one’s beloved team of heroes and rogues, including billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; and Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), aka Heat Wave, a career criminal. When the Legends encounter the J.S.A (the Justice Society of America, the precursor to DC’s Justice League) in the 1940s, Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), aka Vixen, joins the team. While the team reunites, a mystery looms – the fate of former captain Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill).
Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations – unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. When Nate, the grandson of J.S.A. member Commander Steel, unexpectedly finds himself with powers, he must overcome his own insecurities and find the hero within himself. Ultimately, the Legends will clash with foes both past and present, to save the world from a mysterious new threat.
