While his role is under wraps, fans are sure to start speculating over just who Oswalt will play, with one possibility being The Legend – a former comic book writer with an encyclopedic knowledge of superheroes.

Filming is currently under way for the second season, and Kripke recently shared a bloody first-look image from the new episodes.
