Legends of Tomorrow: New Trailer Illustrates Spinoff's DC Comics Roots

A very fun new trailer for The CW’s Arrow/The Flash offshoot, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, juxtaposes the comic book inspiration for many of its characters with their live-action incarnations, starting with a recap of how both Oliver Queen and Barry Allen came to be the super men they are today.

The trailer then tees up the midseason series and its unlikely team-up of Captain Cold (played by Wentworth Miller), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), Firestorm (Victor Garber and ???), Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee), The Atom (Brandon Routh) and White Canary (Caity Lotz).

Check it the clever new promo below, and keep an eye on TVLine this weekend as we recap Legends of Tomorrow’s San Diego Comic-Con panel and welcome the cast to our interview suite at the Hard Rock Hotel.
