Legends co-showrunner Marc Guggenheim while speaking with TV Line, noted that Darhk will be "very different" from the last time viewers saw him. "Things didn't end so well for him there," Guggenheim said. "He also has a wealth of experience now under belt that he's going to be able to bring to bear."
Ford, who has been featured in Supernatural and True Blood, will be seen on the series alongside her real-life husband Brandon Routh, who portrays hero The Atom on Legends.
