The 3rd season of the Legends of Tomorrow is beefing up their new cast and this announcement is proof of that.
According to Deadline, Tala Ashe (American Odyssey, Smash, Law and Order) has been casted as “Zari Adrianna Tomaz/Isis” and of course she will not be using that name (Isis). She will portray a very different incarnation of the character that was first introduced in DC Comics as Black Adam’s wife. Here, Tomaz will be a Muslim-American woman from the year 2030, who becomes “grey hat hacktivist” in an attempt to combat “humanity’s fear, prejudice, and mistreatment of the planet.”
The Arrowverse has not shied away from any of the current social or political issues that have been going on and this here will more than likely be no different.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will return to The CW Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET this fall.
