It was last week when we last checked in with how filming was going on the seventh season of The CW's DC's Legends of Tomorrow. That's when we learned from director Nico Sachse that shooting on the sixth episode was getting underway. Now a little less than a week later, we're checking back in with Sachse to see where things stand with Episode #706 "Deus Ex Latrina" (directed by Sachse, and written by Ray Utarnachitt & Mercedes Valle). And from the looks of the past three Instagram posts, things are getting very, very "woodsy" as our Legends apparently get to spend some quality group time together.
Here's a look at how things are going with the 4th and 5th days of filming on E706, beginning with some forest filming. From there, we get a look at some impressive camera gear as Sachse teases "some big scenes" with all of the Legends that will apparently roll into a night shoot. Finally, Sachse offers a brief video tour of the production "village" as it pans towards the area where filming is taking place. A very cool look behind the scenes that are definitely worth your time & checking out:
With the series set to return on October 13th, here's a look at a Season 7 episode scorecard (with director/writers): "The Bullet Blondes" (Kevin Mock / James Eagan & Ray Utarnachitt), "The Need for Speed" (Alexandra La Roche / Morgan Faust & Marcelina Campos Mayhorn), "WVRDR_ERROR_100 <Oest-of-th3-Gs.gid30n> notFound" (Caity Lotz / Phil Klemmer & Matthew Maala), "Speakeasy Does It" (Kristin Windell / Keto Shimizu & Emily Cheever), and "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Scientist" (Andrew Kasch / Paiman Kalayeh & Mark Bruner).
Earlier this summer at Comic-Con@Home, fans were offered an update on how Season 7 production was rolling along and they learned that Amy Pemberton aka Gideon would be joining the cast in the flesh next season as the Vandal Savage storyline grows. And before you ask- yes, there will be an Ava/Sara wedding this season!!!! Also, the seventh season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow will find our heroes stranded in one set time & place- no time or space travel (think Jon Pertwee's Doctor in Doctor Who). But perhaps the biggest news? That Matt Ryan's Constantine was leaving the Waverider at the end of this season (as we've seen)- but Ryan is staying with the show. Ryan will be playing the character Dr. Gwyn Davies, who is described as a "sort of possible salvation for our team. He is an eccentric gentleman who lives approximately 100 years ago and according to the Legends, he's their only hope."
