‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Explains Rip’s Return in Extended 2017 Trailer
There’s plenty of timey-wimey shenaningans to he be had in the back half of Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, and we’ve got the full trailer to prove it. Learn the truth of Rip Hunter’s strange new persona, and face off with the Legion of Doom in fresh footage.
It seems there’s good reason Rip Hunter popped back up in the Legends midwinter finale as a director in the ‘60s, as the Legion of Doom very much baked his noodle. The extended trailer also teases a certain Star-ry collision with real life, while the full synopsis for January 24 (a new night) premiere “Raiders of the Lost Art” reads:
LOST MEMORIES — When Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and Malcolm Merlyn (guest star John Barrowman) try to capture Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) in 1967, they create an Aberration big enough to draw the attention of the Legends. However, when the team arrives they discover that Rip has no memories of his past due to “time drift” and is just a graduate film student. After trying to convince Rip of who he was, they discover that he possesses an incredibly powerful artifact known as the Spear of Destiny, which the Legion of Doom is after. Ray (Bradon Routh) and Nate (Nick Zano) realize that the Aberration has also affected them personally making it difficult to help the team. Meanwhile, Rory (Dominic Purcell) asks Stein (Victor Garber) for help and makes him promise to keep it a secret from the team.
In the meantime, check out the first trailer below, and stay tuned for more from the second season of Legends of Tomorrow, to say nothing of Season 3 this fall.
