DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has found its Vandal Savage and we think it’s a great choice…
DC Entertainment and The CW have announced Danish actor Casper Crump (Tarzan) will play the immortal villain Vandal Savage, described as “having spent the past 6,000 years moving like a virulent disease through history, whispering in the ears of despots and dictators, all leading to his eventual domination of the world.”
The character, like Hawkman (yesterday) he will debut on an Arrow and The Flash crossover episode.
Vandal is a great choice for a villain as he is steeped in magic and evil. It looks like all bets are off this year.
When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?
Based on the characters from DC Comics, the new series hails from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Arrow”) serves as executive producer alongside Marc Guggenheim (Eli Stone, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Warehouse 13″) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” Pan).
