The CW is about to launch their third series in their DC TV Universe: “Legends of Tomorrow“. Debuting next month, the series will track a ragtag band of heroes and villains who combine their forces to put a stop to a dangerous threat in the form of the immoral Vandal Savage. Not only that, but they must time travel…jumping back and forth through different periods in history…to accomplish their mission. Sounds like fun, right? If this promo is another to go by, it also looks like fun!
Who are the titular legends? They are The Atom (Brandon Routh), White Canary (Caity Lotz), Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), Hawkman (Falk Hentschel), and Firestorm (Victor Garber & Franz Drameh). The series will also feature Casper Crump as the villainous Vandal Savage, Stephanie Corneliussen as Soviet scientist Valentina Vostok, and an as-yet-uncast Connor Hawke. It wouldn’t be the CWverse without guest roles, so expect to see the likes of Green Arrow (Stephen Amell), The Flash (Grant Gustin), Black Canary (Katie Cassidy), Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), and Dr. Aldus Boardman (Peter Francis James) to pop up as well.
The 16-episode inaugural season of “Legends of Tomorrow” arrives on The CW on Thursday, January 21st at 8pm EST. Rumor has it that it will debut with a 2-hour premiere. Be sure to check out the 2-night crossover event on “The Flash” and “Arrow” next week that sets the series up!
