‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ Trailer, Premiere Date

The Legends of Tomorrow trailer shows Londoner from the future Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) heading back in time to recruit a team of “Legends” from the DC Universe to stop the immortal Vandal Savage (Casper Crump), whose power has gotten out of control.

Among the legends Rip collects are Ray Palmer/The Atom (Brandon Routh), Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee), Hawkman (Falk Hentschel), Firestorm’s Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jax (Franz Drameh) and White Canary (Caity Lotz).

Rip also picks up baddies Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell).

While the Legends of Tomorrow is a new show, many of its actors have played their parts in other CW superhero shows: Routh, who had a long arc on Arrow, also appeared as The Atom on The Flash. Crump has channeled his DC villain in an episode in both Arrow and The Flash. Purcell and Miller have appeared as their hot-and-cold duo in multiple The Flash episodes, as did Garber as Stein. Sanders and Drameh both appeared in The Flash as well, while Lotz was in Arrow.

Incidentally, Legends of Tomorrow actors Miller and Purcell are also teaming up for a Prison Break reboot event series that will air on Fox sometime in 2016.

Legends of Tomorrow premieres on The CW Jan. 21.
