DC’s time travelling series on The CW is headed to the Old West, and that means we’ll get to see Jonah Hex!
Variety confirmed the character’s appearance today:
â€œEver since we decided that â€˜Legendsâ€™ would involve time travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West,â€ says executive producer Marc Guggenheim. â€œBut if youâ€™re going to do a story set in the DC Universe version of the Old West, you simply MUST include Jonah Hex in it. Weâ€™re thrilled about bringing another well known, beloved DC character to television.â€
This will be Jonah Hex’s second live-action incarnation after the Josh Brolin film bombed spectacularly a few years ago. DC hasn’t given up on the character as he was featured in a New 52 comic for a while and they did do an animated short of him with Thomas Jane doing the voice.
