Legends of Tomorrow Finds Its Big Bad Vandal Savage

at . Comments

Every Legend needs a foe, right?

Legends of Tomorrow has found theirs in the form of Casper Crump. The Danish actor will be portraying Vandal Savage, the immortal villain all of the future legends are hunting.

The character is described as having spent the past 6,000 years moving like a virulent disease through history, whispering in the ears of despots and dictators, all leading to his eventual domination of the world.

Crump joins another newly announced cast member, Falk Hentschel as Carter Hall aka Hawkman. Hall is the latest reincarnation of an Egyptian Prince who is fated to be reborn throughout time, similar to his soulmate, Kendra aka Hawkgirl.

Like Kendra, Carter has access to the powers of the Hawk God, Horus. The powers can then transform him into the winged warrior known as Hawkman.

Both of these characters will be introduced on the crossover episodes of Arrow and The Flash and continue on Legends of Tomorrow, which will begin in midseason.
