Legends of Tomorrow has gained a new season regular in the person of Nick Zano.
Zano will be playing Dr. Nate Heywood, the grandson of Justice Society of America hero Commander Steel, who later becomes a hero himself — Citizen Steel.
The CW producers have been deliberately unclear on whether Heywood will become a superhero in the show, but, according to Deadline, “given the superhero nature of the show, that appears almost certain.”
Nick Zano is the second new series regular to be added to Legends of Tomorrow, following the announcement that Vixen will join the time-travelling team on the Waverider.
Legends co-creator/executive producer Marc Guggenheim said, “The season finale planted some very significant flags in terms of what the new concept of the show will be in season 2. The team’s mission statement for Season 2 is more compelling than Season 1, and at the same time, it is more streamlined. It’s a little bit higher concept, a very clean notion that will allow the show to do things that it does best.”SuperFable
