The CW has released a brand new trailer, officially giving us a glimpse of the heroes and villains who will makeup the cast of their latest DC comics-based show to join the TV network. Legends of Tomorrow looks to further extend the already wildly successful Arrow and Flash TV series universe by bringing together some familiar faces from both shows – and adding a few new ones.
Time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter must assemble a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat to the planet…and to time itself. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is coming soon to The CW.
This trailer confirms all the speculation since the initial announcement of the series that Caty Lotz will be reprising her role as Sarah Lance (debuting as White Canary), even though her character was killed off in the season three premiere of Arrow. Just how they plan to reconcile that little detail remains unknown, but it is likely they will stick to the dead-reviving reality that has already been established in the Arrow universe (cough Lazarus Pits cough).
Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/ATOM), Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein/Half of Firestorm), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), and Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heatwave) round out the cast of familiar faces, with the additions of Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter and Ciara Renee as Hawkgirl.
Legends of Tomorrow travels to our DC television universe on The CW this fall.
