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.

    Points to their editors. That was a skillfully crafted piece of promo material. I bet it killed with the Comic Con crowd.

  3. Isn’t Rip Hunter like known for being a liar, though? I’m almost sure that’s a thing.

    That was awesome! I wish Legends was airing in the fall because it looks great!

  5. Bill says:

    Looks really cool

    This uses only footage that has been released up to now. It is a combination of: Arrow footage (first minute), Flash footage (second minute), Flash villain footage and non costume hawkgirl looking at the wormhole in the final Flash episode (20 seconds), Heroes of Tomorrow footage (last 40 seconds). It is only an editing job to reuse what has been released already to make it into a package to introduce a new show. Very creative.

    VERY excited for this.

    Dang, that looks GOOD. I don’t care if it *is* re-used footage! They re-used it very cleverly, and the interspersed comics shots were great.
