‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Will Feature a Young George Lucas

Occasionally we reach a point in fandom where it feels like the snake has begun to eat itself. That’s the case with the latest news about the episode of Legends of Tomorrow that will air January 24th. You see, an important part of the episode, apparently, will be about keeping a young George Lucas from quitting film school.

Titled “Raiders of the Lost Art,” it seems that if Lucas never makes Star Wars or Raiders of the Lost Ark, neither Ray nor Nate will be inspired to pursue their respective careers in science or archeology. Lucas will be played by Matt Angel, and, well… this is crazy, right? This is the actual plot of an episode?

I mean, I’m honest to god not sure if I should be excited or frightened by this whole thing. When you go this far, it’ll either end up great or just be the worst thing ever. I honestly don’t think there’s an inbetween on this kind of thing.

I guess we’ll all find out together.
