Legends of Tomorrow ended season 5 with a little bit of space, and the promise of more room, and now the primary massive casting announcement of season 6 fulfills a few of that promise.
On the Legends of Tomorrow panel at DC FanDome day 2, Lisseth Chavez was introduced as becoming a member of the crew of the Waverider within the upcoming season. Chavez will probably be taking part in Esperanza “Spooner” Cruz, a tech whiz with a historical past of alien abduction who “believes she has the flexibility to speak telepathically with aliens.” That half is quoted as a result of one will get the sense that that is an open query that will probably be a part of the thriller of Legends of Tomorrow season 6.
Chavez most just lately performed Officer Vanessa Rojas on Chicago P.D., and had roles on Homicide within the First, The Fosters, and The OA previous to that.
Spooner has no instantly apparent comics counterparts, and we don’t get a lot data on how she makes her technique to the Waverider. The announcement says she survived a childhood alien encounter and now spends her life making tech to fight the extraterrestrial risk. So what we are able to inform now’s that the present is transferring away from goofy fantasy ship ups to goofy sci-fi ship ups.
