DC Television: DC's Legends of Tomorrow first trailer!


Some Legends Are Told

The curtain has been raised for the mysterious third show of the Flarrowverse. The new show, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, centers around some of the biggest heroes(and villains in the case of Captain Cold and Heatwave) the other two shows have ever had. They are teaming up so they can face one of the biggest threats of their world- VANDAL SAVAGE! Enough of my incessant rambling, lets take a look at the trailer!

This show has already impressed me greatly due to a few things. 
The first is the actual team itself. They look like it's going to be a fun team to go time traveling with. The ditzy Ray Palmer teaming up with the more serious and critical Dr. Stein, the justice fueled White Canary having to team up with the criminal Captain Cold. After seeing one of their battle sequences against Vandal Savage's army, I became a bit relived it didn't just focus on one hero saving everyone else, but the team collective.
Another thing I enjoyed is just the explanation of WHY this team had to be formed. Oliver admitting that neither he or Barry could handle doing alone was a big step into explaining why they needed a team. In a way you can put this into any superhero team. Why need the Justice League if you have Superman and Batman, or in the case of Marvel, Why have the Avengers if you have The Hulk and Iron Man? No universe can just rely on a "World's Finest" Duo. There are other heroes that are just as good. This show can prove that.
I do just have one concern with the show so far, and hopefully they will find a way to work it out. We have some pretty big characters and actors on this team. I fear that some are going to get the limelight more than others most weeks. I hope they can find a pretty perfect balance for all the characters, including Jay Jackson who wasn't in the trailer.
In the end, I thought it was a nice intro to the show, and I can't wait to watch!

So what did all of you think of the trailer? Leave a comment below, and i'll seeya next time

  1. My theory is Jay will become the new second half of Firestorm. If you look at the clips of Firestorm in that, you can tell its definitely not Ronnie.

    1. That'd be cool, I just don't know why Ronnie was ditched so fast.

    2. Well i think that would make sense as Ronnie and Caitlin are gonna get married in the flash finale...im more curious as to how they are going to remove the firestorm matrix bond between them

  2. Probably to kill of Ronnie to give katelyn a motive to become killer frost

    1. That's the worst part. The writers of Flash have done such a good job that I really don't want anything bad to happen to Caitin Snow or have her become Killer Frost

    2. yeah, i thought that. but it sucks because then we don't have her getting much face time in the trailer. they could have at least had her on the ground fighting or a shot of her dropping someone in the water... haha!

  5. I'm SO excited!!! Glad to see Sarah back as The White Canary!!! And Wentworth Miller is welcome on my screen ANYTIME!

    Rip Hunter has already impressed me and I haven't seen an episode of Dr. Who since 1983!

    1. i hear you regarding wentworth. never watched arrow so i'm clueless about the white canary. rip hunter surprised me. i'm not a big fan of time traveler stories and was never a fan of rip (or, for that matter, booster gold once booster started doing the time travel stuff). this team up, though, esp. with the villains, could work. i really want to see this version of atom, too.
