Television heroes come together in the trailer for DC's Legends of Tomorrow

05.14.2015

The CW has officially stepped up their game and are bringing together a group of heroes in what's sure to be one of the biggest TV events in comic history. Legends of Tomorrow will focus on the time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter as he is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat. The show will feature Victor Garber (The Flash), Brandon Routh (Arrow), Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who), Caity Lotz (Arrow), Ciarra Renee (Pippin), Franz Drameh (EDGE OF TOMORROW), Dominic Purcell (The Flash), and Wentworth Miller (The Flash). Now a trailer is here so you can check out the madness for yourself!

I know there a lot of fans of Arrow and The Flash, so I'm curious if The CW can keep the momentum going when concentrating on a group of characters for an entire series. We know that Netflix's Daredevil was just the beginning of bringing together The Defendors, but it looks like DC fans are fairly pleased with the way CW is running things. With the plethora of movies and shows out there, is there any better time to be a comic fan?

DC's Legends of Tomorrow will hit TV sometime in 2016.

it looks fun. I feel like it is a knock off of MCU. The shrinking part made me laugh.

A superhero TV show about superheroes?! Marvel could learn something from DC for once... Agents of shield? More like agents of bore.

Found the best Caity Lotz video

I came across this on YouTube. If there is any question why she was able to sell Black Canary A MILLION TIMES better than Laurel, here it is. No CGI, no stuntwomen, and no 2nd takes. Just a serious badass.

Everything wrong with the movies the shows aren't doing

Seems like the TV shows are doing almost everything they can to distance themselves from the moody tripe that DC movies are going for (although I really only have Man of Steel to judge.) So hopefully they can continue with the fun, I only stated watching the TV universe after watching the Flash and that got me started on the Arrow, can't wait to see what else is coming.

Not the biggest fan of Arrow or Flash, but I'll check it out. Looks a million times better than that Super Girl shite I watched yesterday.

Wow, Vandal Savage? Didn't see that one coming at all. I think CW really gets a handle on how to make entertaining superheroes series.

I still think it's overkill, but that looks better than I was expecting. CW sure is on a roll.

I haven't watched Arrow and I've seen like 2 episodes of the Flash because I don't get to watch much TV(I'm a dad. What am I gonna do...) but this series I might have to set the DVR for. Honestly looks as decent as any comic book movie of recent times...

Holy shitballs Vandal Savage? Oh count me in without a doubt. I had no idea what to expect from this show, now I know and does it ever look amazing. I love how tied in everything is from Arrow to the Flash universes and now this. The productions values, for a tv budget, look better than I could have ever imagined. Looking forward to this, really really looking forward to this. Also one tidbit, when Rip starts talking about the time travel thing, I could swear there is one scene where we see

You're not imagining things. If you pause the video, you can see clearly it's Cavanaugh in his yellow costume (with the hood pulled back). Looks like he might find a way home afterall.

Honestly...that looked f**king awesome. It's true to say I may not have read all the Legends of Tomorrow news reports with my full attention but I was under the impression that they were only in pre-production stage...but there's a full on trailer? Great times!

Eh, I don't get it...

Is it just like a mini series or are they ending Flash and Arrow shows and just joining them together and adding more people?

I'm not a fan of CW shows so I haven't really seen either (I saw like 3 episodes of Flash before I quit) so I doubt I will like this show.

And a lot of us don't get you - you seem to be content to be utterly negative and miserable about pretty much everything so do us all a favour and do one. If you're not a fan why bother commenting... As for th flash most of the critics agree it's been a great show - perhaps get your head out of your arse for once and do something useful

And we don't get you. You've never seen the Flash or Arrow and wonder why you don't get it? That would be why.

It's like watching a preview for True Detective season 2 and saying "I don't get it, I never watched season 1, so I doubt I'll like this show". Get a grip man!

I'm surprised....

When I first heard of the spinoff (and the character lineup) I thought it was a non-starter. Then I saw the trailer and heard the name "Vandal Savage" and everything changed. One of the toughest DC villains and they are tossing him in this series? Count me in!

I just hope the casting is as good as the concept. The man needs to be a complete badass AND intellectual giant......not to mention a narcissist that would make Magneto seem humble.

Looks just as much fun as Arrow, and The Flash, but I'm bummed how Brandon Routh won't have his own solo show as the ATOM. I don't mind this concept of heroes and villains joining together, but I would have liked to have seen a solo ATOM show.

Considering Atom first appearred in 1961 and Antman in 1962, I'd say no. He's just doing what he was always supposed to do.

Pretty sure your missing my entire point that Marvel has crazy high production values on these characters and yet DC doesn't seem to care and is just doing their own thing on a TV scale.

Marvel has been advertising the hell out of Ant-Man during Flash and Arrow the last couple weeks, no way most of the audience doesn't see this next year and don't think Ant-Man off the bat. I applaud DC not giving a damn and doing their own thing anyway.
