The CW offered a first look at their “The Flash”/”Arrow” spinoff, “Legends of Tomorrow,” with a trailer that shows new and returning heroes in action, including the debuting Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee), the newly renamed White Canary (Caity Lotz) and the Atom (Brandon Routh), who finally unveils his long-awaited shrinking technology.
Scheduled to premiere as part of the network’s midseason lineup, the eagerly anticipated “Arrow”/”The Flash” spinoff also stars Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave, Victor Garber as Professor Martin Stein (one-half of Firestorm) and Arthur Darvill as time-traveler Rip Hunter. Stephen Amell and Grant Gustin briefly appear as Arrow and the Flash in the trailer as well.
Here’s the official synopsis for “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”:
When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?
