“Legends of Tomorrow” executive producer Marc Guggenheim revealed that Season 3 of the CW series will address Ray’s (Brandon Routh) meeting with Kuasa (Tracy Ifeachor) on CW Seed’s “Vixen.”

In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Guggenheim said that Ray’s previous encounter with Kuasa in Season 2 of “Vixen” might help Amaya (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) know her granddaughter better.

“If you go back and look at ‘Vixen’ Season 2, I wouldn’t exactly call her fighting alongside Ray, she’s always been morally questionable,” Guggenheim said of Kuasa. “But I think that’s what makes it interesting as far as Amaya is concerned is that Ray, at the appropriate moment, will accurately tell her that there were moments where Kuasa was capable of selfless good, so I think that gives Amaya a little bit of hope.”

Guggenheim told Collider that the idea to bring Kuasa to the show started off with their interest in exploring the idea of destiny.

“It’s interesting to have a time travel show [where] you’re always dealing with changing the past and going to the future, but we really love talking in the writers’ room about a character who has this very specific destiny,” Guggenheim said. “[Amaya] knows that she’s supposed to have a daughter and that daughter is going to have two daughters, and one is going to become a hero and one is going to become a villain. That’s really interesting because, first of all, there’s a lot of dramatic tension to be found, waiting for Amaya to learn these things.”

“She hasn’t learned about Kuasa yet,” Guggenheim said of Amaya. “At the end of Season 2, she just had learned about [her other granddaughter] Mari (Megalyn Echikunwoke), who is the Vixen of the 21st century and is the superhero. But to also discover that she has a granddaughter who’s a villain is really emotionally complex to us, in a good way, because it means that [Amaya’s] capacity, as both a parent and a person of destiny, is now both bad and good.”

As previously reported, Kuasa — along with former Legion of Doom member Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough) and psychic ape Gorilla Grodd — will be recruited by a “non-human entity” to go against the Legends next season. While the identity of this “non-human entity” is being kept under wraps, Guggenheim’s fellow executive producer Phil Klemmer told IGN that the name of the mystery character will be mentioned in the Season 3 premiere.

“Legends of Tomorrow” Season 3, episode 1 airs on Tuesday, Oct. 10 at 9 p.m. EST on The CW.
