Jonah Hex will be guest-starring in an upcoming episode of the CW's DC's Legends of Tomorrow, according to Variety. Although the role has yet to be cast, Hex will appear in the show's eleventh episode when the time-traveling team visits the American Wild West.
“Ever since we decided that Legends would involve time travel, we were eager to do a story set in the Old West,” said Marc Guggenheim, one of the show's executive producers. “But if you’re going to do a story set in the DC Universe version of the Old West, you simply must include Jonah Hex in it. We’re thrilled about bringing another well known, beloved DC character to television.”
Originally created in 1972's All-Star Western #10 by John Albano and Tony DeZuniga, Jonah Hex quickly became DC's most iconic western character. In 2010, Josh Brolin starred in a feature film adaptation of the character's origin.
DC's Legends of Tomorrow debuts January 21 on the CW.
