According to a TVLine exclusive Legends of Tomorrow is eyeing an Obama episode set in his early years. According to the tip, The CW is planning a Season 3 episode around a teenage President Barack Obama. The episode will allegedly take place in the late 70’s during the time when Obama was a student at Occidental College.
Casting is currently taking place to find the actor who will play a Young Obama and the episode will start shooting in February for an April release date.
This actually makes sense since Legends current season is focused on finding historical figures who were misplaced in the timeline after last season which included Julius Ceaser and Lyndon B. Johnson so far.
Other Legends news is that The Flash’s “Kid Flash” will also join the Legends as a season regular and we don’t know about you, but we’re happy for him he seemed to get lost on The Flash and a show like Legends could use him especially after losing Firestorm during this year’s crossover episode.
What do you think? Are Legends smart to take on a young Barack Obama? And are you happy to see Kid Flash join the Legends? Let us know in the comments below.
