With how much fun The Flash and Arrow have been this year, it’s almost hard to fathom that there’s a third show set within their universe debuting this season... and now we know when.
The CW announced today that the eagerly awaited DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere on Thursday, January 21, 2016. But if that news alone isn’t enough to excite you, there’s more. They also released a brand new trailer. Check it out!
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is the third live action show set within the Arrow and Flash universe, and features actors and characters spun off from both shows, including Firestorm (Victor Garber and Franz Drameh), White Canary (the former Black Canary, Caity Lotz), the Atom (Brandon Routh), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Heatwave (Dominic Purcell) and Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee). They’ll join new characters such as Hawkman (Falk Hentschel), Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and Vandal Savage (Casper Crump), several of whom will first debut in next week’s Flash/Arrow crossover event.
If that sounds like a lot of character, it is, and for very good reason. While Arrow is this universe’s grounded, street level show and The Flash is its more colorful, super-powered offering, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will be its first team show, offering yet another comic book flavor to the The CW’s substantial shared super hero universe.
