Goodbye, Victor Garber!
It has been announced that Victor Garber who plays Martin Stein and half of Firestorm on CW’s Legends Of Tomorrow will be leaving the show during its third season which began last week. Garber joined the Arrowverse during The Flash’s first season and his role continued to his role as a series regular on Legends. During his time on the show, he’s played a voice of wisdom for many of the Arrowverse’s characters. Firestorm started as Stein and Ronnie Raymond (Robbie Amell) until his death where Jefferson Jackson (Franz Drameh) took over. Garber is reportedly leaving the show to return to Broadway in the show Hello Dolly.
Garber has been one of the hearts of Arrowverse for four years and we can’t say that we aren’t heartbroken to see him go. Martin Stein has mentored so many of our favorite characters during his time on the different shows and we are very worried to see how they handle his departure. Some reports have speculated that they will kill off his character because Jefferson will always need the other half of Firestorm there but we are very deeply hoping that isn’t the case. Garber can always return after his show or at least from time to time. Garber won’t be the first character to depart the show as its star Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) has left multiple times in the shows few seasons and he always finds a way back. Here’s to hoping!
Martin Stein's finest moment on Legends Of Tomorrow
Garber acted as a comic relief, the moral compass and a man with a beautiful singing voice from when the show called for it, hence Broadway’s desire to take him from us. What do you think of the character’s news? How do you think they’ll handle the departure and what are your hopes for a return? Sound off while we continue to mourn his loss and enjoy every second we have left with Martin Stein until he disappears.
