The upcoming spin-off of ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash’ has lined up some legendary directing talent for its first season. The director of ‘The Howling,’ ‘Gremlins’ and ‘The Burbs,’ Joe Dante will direct the eighth episode of ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ titled ‘Night of the Hawk.’ This news was relieved by the show’s executive producer Marc Guggenheim in a tweet.
The episode is written by Sarah Nicole Jones & Cortney Norris and based on the title we can assume focuses on Hawkman played by Falk Hentschel and Hawkgirl played by Ciara Renée who were introduced in the Arrow/Flash crossover episodes which also introduced ‘Legends’ main villain, Vandal Savage. Though Joe Dante is mainly known for his amazing films, he also has a lot of great work on television. On top of his episode of ‘Masters of Horror’ he’s worked on shows like ‘Hawaii Five-0’ and ‘Witches of East End.’
‘DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow’ premiers January 21, 2016. Dante’s episode will likely air in March.
