Nick Zano of “Minority Report” has been cast to play historian Dr. Nate Heywood, who in the comics would go on to become the hero Citizen Steel, for Season 2 of The CW’s “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”.
The producers have not yet revealed if Heywood would ever be donning the costume of Steel on the series. However, since the existence of the Justice Society of America was revealed during the season one finale and the producers have already confessed that we will be seeing a ‘rotating” roster during the second season, I think it’s a safe bet that we will indeed see Heywood in the star-spangled costume at some point.
Producer Marc Guggenheim reinforces this possibility when he stated during an interview with Deadline, “…the composition of the team is going to change; there will be some new faces on the Waverider…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.”
“Legends of Tomorrow” returns Thursdays this fall on the CW.
