Vandal Savage was teased to be the villain in the presentation for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and now we have a face to who will be playing the part. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that Danish actor Casper Crump will be playing the immortal villain.
According to the EW article, Savage is immortal, 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.
Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) has assembled a team of heroes (Caity Lotz’s White Canary, Brandon Routh’s the Atom, Victor Garber’s Firestorm) and villains (Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold and Dominic Purcell’s Heat Wave) to stop Savage.
Crump is expected to make his first appearance as Savage in the Arrow/The Flash cross-over event, which will also mark the debut of Falk Hentschel’s Hawkman.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere the CW mid-season.
