Legends of Tomorrow trailer

The CW announced details of the new show DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and released the first image and trailer. The network’s upfront gave up a few big details about the show — time travel factors in, and Caity Lotz is playing White Canary, among others. There’s info on the villain, an immortal baddie named Vandal Savage, who has been a DC Comics villain for decades, and some pretty goofy/fun stuff once the time travel concepts kick in. It looks kind of like the Legion of Superheroes, only with adventures in our time rather than the 30th century.

Check out the four-minute Legends of Tomorrow trailer and image below to see all the action.

Here is the show’s official synopsis:

“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? DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW stars Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”); Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” “Superman Returns”); Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”); Caity Lotz (“Arrow”); Ciarra Renee (“Pippin”); Franz Drameh (“Edge of Tomorrow”); with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”); and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”). Based on the characters from DC Comics, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”), Marc Guggenheim (“Arrow,” “Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”).
