It has been confirmed by ComicBook.com that Jonah Hex, played by Johnathon Schaech, will return to DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow for its Season 3 Finale. However, it has not been confirmed what role Hex will play in the season finale.
Hex will not be the only character to guest star in the season finale. John Constantine has also been confirmed to appear in the upcoming finale. Recently appearing in the mid-season premiere as well, many fans have speculated that he would be a permanent resident of the team down the road.
Hex was a fan-favorite guest star for the show in the first season and was one of the shows first recurring guest stars throughout the first and second seasons. This season though, Hex has yet to appear in the show. Although, whenever he is asked, Schaech has said to fans that he is always willing to return to the show.
“I want to explore Jonah as deep as they want to go,” Schaech once told ComicBook.com. “He is such a complex character. In today’s world of anti-heroes, where Dexter becomes the hero, he needs to be displayed that way. I think all of us are really interested more about the problems that these characters have. That’s why we relate to superheroes and to comic books, because they’re flawed. Just like we are.”
“I think it would be great to bring Hex into the equation” in future episodes of Legends of Tomorrow, Schaech later added. “I think he’s a really great part of that cast. But also, the Western aspect of it all that’s touched onto the other side. Westworld does a lot of this, where there’s a lot going on in the West that no one really knows except for Hex. Him being a bounty hunter and him getting rid of the bad people in this world, that’s something that he has to go off and do.”
While nothing has been confirmed that he could be a permanent resident of the show, we never know what could happen. The show writers might consider making Hex a permanent resident of the Waverider down the road.
In season three, the team land in Star City after defeating Legion of Doom, learning that they created anachronisms through time. Rip Hunter has formed a new organization, the Time Bureau, tasked with fixing the anachronisms. Zari Adrianna Tomaz joins the team, a hacktivist from 2042 who can manipulate air by using a powerful amulet connected to Amaya’s totem. Rip Hunter tells the team of a demonic entity, Mallus, whose follower, Eleanor, has resurrected Amaya’s granddaughter Kuasa and Damien Darhk for a dark purpose.
DC‘s Legends of Tomorrow airs on Monday nights at 8 pm ET.
