keeps adding more LGBT characters: Besides Nyssa al Ghul (Katrina Law) and the soon-to-be-resurrected Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the show just introduced us to Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), an employee at Palmer Technologies who will eventually become the heroic Mister Terrific. Terrific from the DC Comics universe, but Kellum says the show will have its own take on the character.
“I’ve definitely looked to Michael Holt in the comic books for inspiration into how I was going to play him,” he tells New Now Next.
“[But] I like that I have the free reign to go places that are different…
And I think comic book fans will actually like where we go.” In the comics, for example, Holt is heterosexual—and haunted by the death of his wife.
Pedowitz also suggested more room for crossover in the new series that pairs with CW superhero dramas “Arrow” and “The Flash.” “‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ is part of the ‘Flash’/’Arrow’ universe,” Pedowitz said during the call.
