The CW has been laying the groundwork for a crossover event that is a spinoff from their Arrow and The Flash series. Now we’ve got our first official look at DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which will have a midseason premiere this fall. The network is coming off of their most-watched season in seven years, and is looking to build off of its two DC titles in an inventive way.
Here’s the first look at DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, followed by an official synopsis of what we should expect later this year:
When heroes alone are not enoughâ€¦ the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat â€” one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known? DCâ€™S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW stars Victor Garber (â€œThe Flash,â€ â€œAliasâ€); Brandon Routh (â€œArrow,â€ â€œSuperman Returnsâ€); Arthur Darvill (â€œDoctor Whoâ€); Caity Lotz (â€œArrowâ€); Ciarra Renee (â€œPippinâ€); Franz Drameh (â€œEdge of Tomorrowâ€); with Dominic Purcell (â€œThe Flash,â€ â€œPrison Breakâ€); and Wentworth Miller (â€œThe Flash,â€ â€œPrison Breakâ€). Based on the characters from DC Comics, DCâ€™S LEGENDS OFTOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (â€œArrow,â€ â€œThe Flash,â€ upcoming â€œPanâ€), Marc Guggenheim (â€œArrow,â€ â€œEli Stone,â€ â€œPercy Jackson: Sea of Monstersâ€), Andrew Kreisberg (â€œArrow,â€ â€œThe Flash,â€ â€œEli Stone,â€ â€œWarehouse 13â€) and Sarah Schechter (â€œArrow,â€ â€œThe Flash,â€ upcoming â€œPanâ€).
