Sara (Caity Lotz) is not a fan of the Justice Society of America (JSA).
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Lotz revealed Sara’s first impression of the new superhero group that she and her fellow Legends will meet in Season 2 of “Legends of Tomorrow.” Although JSA is basically an ally to the new generation of time police, the 29-year-old actress said that Sara, also known as White Canary, will have a mixed reaction to meeting the team.
“Sara’s never a fan of people who are too perfect and follow all the rules,” Lotz said. But since Sara also has that military side to her, she is amazed by how organized JSA is when executing missions.
“They’re pretty good at that,” Lotz said. “So there’s a little bit of [Sara] that’s like, ‘These people have got their sh– together.’ But it’s also probably a little annoying, because they got their sh– together and they know it.”
Sara’s fellow Legends seemingly have the same feelings about the JSA, as executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed at San Diego Comic-Con last July that the two superhero teams won't immediately click when they first encounter one another.
“It’s all going to kick off with an epic battle between the Justice Society and the Legends,” Guggenheim said (via Comic Book Resources) of how the relationship between the two groups will start. “It’s required that every time there’s more than one superhero in any place at any given time, they have to fight. We’re honoring that rule and that tradition straight out of the gate.”
Among the JSA members who will be featured in the sophomore run of the “Arrow” — “The Flash” offshoot are Amaya Jiwe / Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), Henry Heywood, Sr. / Commander Steel (Matthew MacCaull), Courtney Whitmore / Stargirl (Sarah Grey) and Todd James Rice / Obsidian (Lance Henriksen and Dan Payne).
Rex Tyler / Hourman (Patrick J. Adams), who was introduced as a member of the JSA in the show’s Season 1 finale, is also expected to return next installment.
Although still not confirmed, John Wesley Shipp mentioned in an interview with Variety last May that his new “The Flash” character — Earth-3 Jay Garrick — is also part of the JSA.
“Legends of Tomorrow” Season 2 will premiere on Thursday, Oct. 13, at 8 p.m. on The CW.
