Johnathon Schaech is joining DC's Legends of Tomorrow.
While his character of Jonah Hex is at first only a guest starring role, it has the possibility of becoming recurring because...Jonah Hex!
Jonah Hex is a morally ambiguous gunslinger from the Old West with a penchant for danger and an understanding of time travel.
Since he's comfy in the Wild West and has decided to make it his home, he'll advise the time travelers we know to be careful when they arrive in the town of Salvation.
The character has become entangled in time travel in the comics when he was kidnapped and taken to a post-apocalyptic future.
Hex has also been tied to the modern storyline in comics by making trips to 1880s Gotham City.
It will be really cool to see if they decide to bring him on board in a recurring capacity and what that would mean.
What do you think? Would Hex be a welcome addition?
Tune into the series premiere this Thursday when DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 1 airs at 8/7c on The CW.
