CW is on a role with upcoming shows. Just one day after their “Supergirl – First Look” video hit YouTube we get our first peek at the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow. Initially hyped as an Arrow/The Flash spin off, the roster has taken a life of it’s own with characters including Arrow, Flash, Hawkgirl, White Canary (formerly Black Canary), Atom, Captain Cold, Heat Wave (half of Firestorm), and Rip Hunter (son of Booster Gold).
Seemingly a television take on Marvel’s “Avengers” at first glance, Legends of Tomorrow has much more in common with Doctor Who given it’s heavy focus on time travel.
The show synopsis is as 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”).”
