The CW‘s super-team DC’s Legends of Tomorrow have met many figures from history, both factual and fictional, as they have leaped through time . When the mid-season premiere airs on January 24, the Legends will cross paths with a legend from pop culture that has a profound and unexpected impact on several of the team members. The new episode, titled “Raiders of the Lost Art,” takes the team to Los Angeles in 1964 where they meet a young, frustrated George Lucas. Matt Angel, of Sweet/Vicious fame, will portray the younger version of the famous filmmaker.
Angel Tweeted a shot of his trailer door on the Legends set which you can see below.
“Because of circumstances, the time aberration in episode 209 is George Lucas quits film school,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim reveals. “As a result, he never makes Star Wars or Raiders of the Lost Ark. As a result, Ray, who became an engineer because of Star Wars, and Nate, who became a historian because of Raiders, slowly start to lose their brilliance, because those things that inspired them to become who they are didn’t exist.”
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/The ATOM, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance/White Canary, Victor Garber and Franz Drameh as Professor Martin Stein & Jefferson “Jax” Jackson/Firestorm, and Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave.
“Raiders of the Lost Art” will air on Tuesday, January 24 at 9:00pm ET/PT.
