So CW has presented a first look trailer of the Flash/Arrow spin off series, Legends of Tomorrow. As mentioned when the show was initially picked up by CW, the show will feature supporting heroes from both of the popular DC shows.
The official synopsis as revealed by CW follows:
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”).
Most of the trailer shows introductions to the new heroes as well as time traveling rogue, Rip Hunter. Most of the action scenes in the trailer were filmed specifically for this trailer, so there is no say if we will even see the scenes in the pilot or in the show at all. We gathered quite a bit of information in this first look but MANY questions need answer – especially the resurrection of Caity Lotz’ character ‘White Canary’. We understand she is brought back to life but Lazarus’ Pit but as we saw with Thea in Arrow, the pit changes you, so we have to wait and see what’s up with Sara; and does anyone else know shes alive?
Also, Robbie Amell has not signed up for this new series so it is still up in the air who the second counter part of Firestorm is played by, though most sources are indicting this to be Franz Drameh’s secret character.
