As the freshman season of Legends of Tomorrow comes to a close, news is starting to come out of new characters coming next season! TVLine is reporting that the DC property is now looking to cast two new series regulars for the Waverider, the first of which has a very intriguing quality…
“A male in his late-20s to mid-30s is being sought to play a guy who grew up in the shadow of his World War II hero grandfather and has used a Han Solo-like facade to conceal his insecurity — until, that is, the development of super powers enables him to love up to his family legacy.”
This new crew member will not be coming alone as reports of a second female casting have surfaced as well.
“Also being cast for Legends Season 2 is the female member of an elite paramilitary team living in the 1940s. An African-American, she is scrutinized in her time for both her gender and race and thus has worked twice as hard to be a perfect soldier. That said, she blames herself for — and aims to avenge — the death of a team member for whom she had repressed feelings.”
Some people think that the time traveling crew may have already been a tad too big (including myself), but I’m very curious to see how these two will fit in to the fabric of the universe already created. Not to mention a little Star Wars qualities can go a long way, especially a smuggling scoundrel like Han Solo.

Season 1 Episode 14 of Legends of Tomorrow airs Thursday at 8/7c on the CW.
