Fans of The Flash and Arrow will be no doubt already aware that The CW are soon debuting yet another DC show. Legends of Tomorrow is a time traveling team up featuring a mixture of heroes and villains that have previously debuted on The Flash and Arrow. The main antagonist of the series has also been prior introduced in the form of Vandal Savage. The villain debuted in the second Arrow/Flash two night crossover event. This episode also served to bring in Hawkman and Hawk girl as the two characters’ back story’s are directly linked to that of Savage. As well as the winged pairing, also on the team will be Captain Cold and Heatwave, The Atom; newly resurrected White Canary and Firestorm. The team will be guided in their time travel exploits by Rip Hunter, played by Arthur Darvill.
The much anticipated premiere comes on 21st of January.
Here is CW’s official synopsis for the episode which comes courtesy of ScreenRant: “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 miniscule 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. Together this unlikely group will attempt to stop one of the most formidable villains of all time, while they must learn how to not only be a team, but heroes as well.”
