'DC's Legends of Tomorrow': Ralph Dibny would be perfect for the team, especially after Ray's exit
Ralph's wacky powers and easygoing nature would work perfectly with the Legends' dynamic and we can see him having a lot of fun with the cast
After 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 Episode 8, Ray Palmer / Atom (Brandon Routh) and Nora Darhk (Courtney Ford) have finally stepped off the Waverider, leaving a gaping hole in the team and the hearts of fans. The couple's exit has been quite painful and we are more than a little upset about the whole thing. But now it's time to look to the future.
With Ray gone, there is an open spot on the Legends team and we would like to nominate someone who we think would be perfect for that slot: Hartley Sawyer's Ralph Dibny /Elongated Man from 'The Flash'. Ralph's wacky powers and easygoing nature would work perfectly with the Legends' dynamic and we can see him having a lot of fun with the cast.
Sawyer himself has expressed interest in at least a cameo appearance. On March 18, Sawyer replied to a tweet declaring the start of work on 'Legends of Tomorrow' Season 6's script, writing, "Ralph is ready for a cameo."
'Legends of Tomorrow' features cast members drawn from across multiple Arrowverse shows but right now, the only 'Flash' alum left on the show is Dominic Purcell's Mick Rory / Heat Wave. Ralph could bring a bit more balance to the show and if Natalie Dreyfuss's Sue Dearbon (who we all know is eventually going to marry Ralph and become Sue Dibny) joins him as well, even better.
The cast for 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 includes Routh as Ray Palmer aka Atom, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance aka White Canary, Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Charlie, Tala Ashe as Zari Tarazi, Jes Macallan as Ava Sharpe and Ford as Nora Darhk along with Olivia Swann, Amy Louise Pemberton, Nick Zano, Dominic Purcell, Matt Ryan, Ramona Young, Shayan Sobhian and Adam Tsekhman.
'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Season 5 airs new episodes every Tuesday at 9 pm ET exclusively on The CW.
The first episode after Routh and Ford's exit, Episode 9 'Zari, Not Zari' was initially scheduled to air on March 24 but has since been delayed. The CW has not announced a reason for the delay but it is presumed that it's because of production being halted as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
