Flash/Arrow/Legends Of Tomorrow Casts Vandal Savage

Just a few hours after we had the announcement that Hawkman had been cast in Legends Of Tomorrow (see here) we now have news that a new villain has been cast too. Danish actor Casper Crump (who appeared in the Scandinavian version of The Killing and a bunch of other Euro-thrillers) will be playing immortal evil guy Vandal Savage. We assume the beard swung it.

In the series Savage is described as “having spent the past 6,000 years moving like a virulent disease through history, whispering in the ears of despots and dictators, all leading to his eventual domination of the world.” Like a younger version of Rupert Murdoch then. In the comics Vandal Savage first appeared way back in 1944 in Green Lantern #10.

Savage will debut in an Arrow and The Flash crossover episode before moving onto DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

Legends of Tomorrow stars Doctor Who’s Arthur Darvill as the time-traveling Rip Hunter who assembles a motley group of heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable, immortal threat. As well the Hawkman and Hawkgirl duo, these include The Atom (Brandon Routh), White Canary (Caity Lotz), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) and Firestorm (Victor Garber*). Franz Drameh also stars as Jay Jackson. All of which you’ll know if you read our Hawkman story ’cos we just cut and paste it.
