Legends of Tomorrow drops massive Wonder Woman Easter egg
Legends of Tomorrow indirectly introduced Wonder Woman into the Arrow-verse on Tuesday.
Set in 1930s Hollywood, the episode featured a time-displaced Helen of Troy (Bar Paly), who basically started a war between two film studios. Frustrated that men were constantly fighting over her, she begged Zari (Tala Ashe) not to return her to Troy.
Thus, the newest Legend on the team dropped her back in her era, but in a different location: An island of warrior women where there are no boys allowed. And if those comments didn’t sound Easter egg alarm bells for comic book readers, the subsequent chyron confirming the island is Themyscira certainly did.
For those unfamiliar, Themyscira is the home of Wonder Woman, a.k.a. Diana Prince, who was portrayed by Gal Gadot in this summer’s blockbuster hit, but has not yet appeared in any of the Greg Berlanti superhero series. (Note: Her name appeared on Barry and Iris’ telephone on Earth-2 during a season 2 episode of The Flash, and original Wonder Woman Lynda Carter plays POTUS on Supergirl.)
Legends of Tomorrow airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
