The secretive upcoming Arrow/Flash spinoff DC’s Legends of Tomorrow debuts in January on The CW, and the network has released a massive, spoiler-heavy full-length trailer for the superhero team-up series. If you thought what we’ve seen before looked nuts, take a gander at the insane sci-fi action going on in this first look trailer.
Beware spoilers in The CW’s trailer for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow via their YouTube page:
The trailer had a piece of just about every popular nerd franchise in recent memory. Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter has a glowing six-shooter that feels right out of Firefly and the time travel elements and heavy sci-fi feel very Doctor Who. We get glimpses of characters from both Arrow and The Flash and Rip’s ship even feels a bit like something out of Guardians of the Galaxy. The trailer also gives us quite a good look at DC villain Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) through his many conquests in time.
I’m totally down for this show, and this trailer shot my excitement through the roof, due to the cast’s chemistry, the sheer insanity of the scope and the high production values (for the most part). We’re in an impressive day and age of storytelling and geekdom, where a show like this is on the airwaves.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow premieres January 21st, exclusively on The CW.
