It’s learned Jonah Hex will appear in DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow as executive producer Marc Guggenheim announced the news.
“Ever since we decided that Legends would involve time travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West. But if you’re going to do a story set in the DC Universe version of the Old West, you simply MUST include Jonah Hex in it,” Guggenheim said in a statement. “We’re thrilled about bringing another well known, beloved DC character to television.”
Jonah Hex will first appear in episode 11; the role hasn’t been cast just yet.
In the comics, Jonah Hex is a western anti-hero, a bounty hunter, and has even beat Batman on more than one occasion.
