Hey. Everybody. Stop what you’re doing and watch this trailer for the CW’s newest DC show, Legends of Tomorrow.
We’ve got Ray Palmer and Dr. Stein teaming up with Captain Cold and Heatwave, along with a resurrected Canary, who apparently is taking a page out of Gandalf’s book and changing her name to “White Canary.” But wait, that’s not quite enough, so let’s also throw in newcomer Hawkgirl, played by Ciara Renee and the time traveling adventurer, Rip Hunter, played by Arthur Darvill, who’s no stranger to time travel himself.
Still not convinced? Fine. How about they’re fighting one of DC’s all-time great bad guys, the immortal Vandal Savage, a primordial caveman who came into contact with extraterrestrial materials to become super-intelligent and incapable of dying.
And if that’s STILL not enough — Ray Palmer’s ATOM technology finally shrinks. We’re there! We’ve finally made it!
The show, officially called Legends of Tomorrow, will make a mid-season premiere, no doubt set up by it’s CW sister shows, Arrow and The Flash, and will only run for 13 episodes, most likely following a similar model to ABC/Marvel’s Agent Carter, which was recently renewed for a second season due to its success. As Guggenheim says, “Arrow is all about saving Starling City, Flash is all about saving Central City. This is the first show that we’re doing that’s all about saving the world,” Guggenheim explains.
Here’s a synopsis for the show.
When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known? DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW stars Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”); Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” “Superman Returns”); Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”); Caity Lotz (“Arrow”); Ciarra Renee (“Pippin”); Franz Drameh (“Edge of Tomorrow”); with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”); and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”). Based on the characters from DC Comics, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”), Marc Guggenheim (“Arrow,” “Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”).
