I really hope that we get to see more of the future on the next season of Legends of Tomorrow.
Season 1 was pretty past-heavy, but we got two episodes set in the near future, a third on Vanishing Point, and some of Rip’s flashbacks along the way.
Season 2 though really didn’t have ANYTHING set in the future. The closest we got was Charles McNider in the year 3000. (I guess we survive the Thanagarian invasion without Savage after all, so yay?)
And I mean, I understand that part of the appeal of time travel is going to see famous events and famous people. But I still feel like we’re missing out a little. Where are the dystopias? The Utopias? The awesome tech? The post-apocalyptic scenarios (…okay, we did get one of those.)? The aliens?
Eobard Thawne is from a future we never got to see. Whatever interaction Rip had with Future Barry was strictly off-camera. And DC has so many fun future stories! Legion of Superheroes! Booster Gold! Bart Allen and Jenni Ognatz! The MULTITUDE of Thawne descendents! (…they might need to fix the whole Eddie problem first, to be fair.)
Time travel is such a fun concept, but so far, we’ve only really been playing with half of it!
