Legends Of Tomorrow: Marc Guggenheim On Choosing Arrow for the finale episode

Now, we all know how Legend Of Tomorrow risked with the Arrow in the latest and finale episode of season 5. So, let’s know what the consulting producer and co-developer of the show, Marc Guggenheim has to say about that.

“I think the only two audibles I called in terms of adding in Easter eggs were the joke that’s at Arrow’s expense when Nate describes the Hood show and Zari says it’s dumb.

That was my ad-lib. And when (Dominic Purcell) was being Dhon, as in Khan, I asked him to quote a line from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan directly because I love Wrath of Khan.”

Added Marc in an interview with EW.

Well, it looks to fan that Marc has some issues related to the departed series just because he planned the Arrow storyline for Batman. However, to clear the air, we are here to tell you that it’s nothing true. Marc has no issues, rather, he enjoys co-developing such shows and series with such plots.

He himself has co-developed a series that successfully ran for eight seasons. And it ended in the beginning of this year.
