Damien Darhk received the short end of the stick when he made his Arrowverse debut as Arrow’s Season 4 villain. But as a member of the Legion of Doom in Legends of Tomorrow’s second run, he flourished. In the show’s third season he’ll appear again. While specifics concerning his place this time around remain largely unknown, executive producer Phill Klemmer has teased what to expect of the character’s tone:
“The kernel that we’re going to begin with is Damien Darhk,” Klemmer said. “We’ve come up with a way he can come into our show. He was kind of glib and a lighter version of himself last season. We want to give him some real teeth and a real sinister presence. We want to slowly build out his dark alliance.”
It seems as though this version of Darhk will be closer to his portrayal in Arrow. As such, this tease begs the question of whether the version of Damien Darhk in Legends Season 3 is from a present day timeline.
