The CW’s Next Superhero Adventure: “Legends of Tomorrow” Is Primed For Prime Time

“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.

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.
