A First Look trailer for the CW’s latest comic book property show has been released.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will star Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer, Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Caity Lotz as the newly resurrected Sara Lance, now the White Canary, and many more, including former Doctor Who companion Arthur Darvill.
Darvill plays Rip Hunter, a time traveller tasked with protecting the future from an immortal warlord. To do this he assembles a ragtag band of heroes and villains, some old, a few new. The show will also feature crossovers from Barry Allen/The Flash, Oliver Queen/Arrow and what looks like the Reverse Flash as well.
This is a fun trailer, and has a tone closer to The Flash than to Arrow, but more confident. It sounds like a superhero version of Seven Samurai, or if you want to be cynical, another Avengers rip-off.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will be broadcast during the 2016 mid-season.
Watch the trailer below.
