“I’ve seen Men of Steel die and Dark Knights fall…”
Well THAT doesn’t sound too promising! With the massive appeal of shows like Arrow and The Flash, DC is hoping to ride the wave of success with their next show, “Legends of Tomorrow.” “Legends of Tomorrow” expands off the Arrow and The Flash series and brings eight characters, good guys and bad, into one team.
In the year 2166, the immortal villain Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) is on the verge of his final victory – total chaos and the utter destruction of humanity. As the world crumbles, the Time Master Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) takes matters into his own hands; he travels 150 years into the past to assemble a carefully selected team of heroes and rogues to stop him.
Hunter has chosen what seems like an ill-matched group: billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to minuscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller), known as Captain Cold, and his partner Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), AKA Heat Wave, a pair of career criminals; and Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renée) and Carter Hall (Falk Hentschel) AKA Hawkgirl and Hawkman.
Recently the CW released eight character posters across several websites showing the main players, minus the baddie, Vandal Savage. It will be interesting to see how they incorporate the bad guys into the good guys team.
One of the show developers, Marc Guggenheim, has stated that each season will be looked as it’s own separate movie. This should be an interesting approach and time will tell if it will keep fans hooked.
DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” hits the CW on Thursday, January 21st, 2016. Stay in touch with the series via the following links:
