DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has cast an Ant-Man movie villain as Rip Hunter’s mentor.
Martin Donovan, who played Mitchell Carson in Marvel’s Ant-Man, will appear in future episodes of the CW’s new superhero television series, Legends of Tomorrow. He will portray the mentor of Time Master Rip Hunter who has assembled a team of heroes and villains to travel through time to take down Vandal Savage.
IGN provides the following description of Martin Donovan’s character arc:
Druce is a respected member of the time council who was Rip’s first mentor at the Time Master Academy. He is a seasoned Time Master who is accustomed with mediating conflicts throughout history. Druce finds himself faced with his greatest challenge when he is tasked to find Rip and convince him to abandon his hunt for Vandal Savage (Casper Crump). If he can’t convince his former pupil and the Legends to give up their quest, he may be forced to kill the man he looked upon as a son.
Legends of Tomorrow premiered last night on The CW. The show will have 16 episodes and airs on Thursdays at 8pm EST.SuperFable
