The Legends of Tomorrow are an elite team put together by time traveler Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), yup he’s from the DC comics, as are the rest of the team, consisting of White Canary / Sarah Lance (Caty Lotz) from CW’s ‘Arrow,’ The Atom / Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) also from CW’s ‘Arrow,’ Captain Cold / Leonard Snart (Wentworth Miller) from CW’s ‘The Flash,’ Heat Wave / Mic Rory (Dominic Purcell) from CW’s ‘The Flash,’ Hawkgirl / Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renee) also from CW’s ‘The Flash,’ Hawkman / Carter Hall (Falk Hentschel), FIRESTORM / Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) & Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), also from CW’s ‘The Flash.’ Not sure why they need two fire guys and two hawk people. Why not get a Kryptonian, like Powergirl, a speedster, like Impulse, someone to deal with magic, like Dr Fate or Zantanna Zatara, and a Green Lantern, like John Stewart or Jade? Seems like that would be a much more powerful team, you know, if the fate of the world is at stake.
Quote from ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ trailer: “I’ve seen men of steel die..”-Rip Hunter (did he just say he saw the Death of Superman?).
‘Legends of Tomorrow’ premieres on the CW, on Jan 21 2016.
