- A fictionalized version of George Lucas appears in the "Raiders of the Lost Art" episode of Legends of Tomorrow where he is played by actor Matt Angel. In the episode, a young George Lucas from the year 1967 comes to acquire the Spear of Destiny. However, an incident frightens him to the point that he quits film school and thus never becomes a famous movie director. As a result, two of the Legends lose their special talents as they were never inspired to pursue their respective careers since Lucas never made Star Wars or Indiana Jones.
