We only just got our first proper look at The CW’s Arrow/The Flash spinoff show, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow this morning — but now you can see them in action, as Barry Allen and Oliver Queen bring together an unlikely group of heroes to deal with a legendary villain.
The trailer uses a lot of footage from Arrow and The Flash to set up the premise of Oliver and Barry seeking out a new hero to take on the immortal DC supervillain Vandal Savage, but there’s some new glimpses of characters in action — Hawkgirl’s wings as she takes flight, and seeming confirmation that Caity Lotz’s White Canary is in fact a Lazarus-Pit-resurrected version of Sara Lance.
But even among the explosions and superpowered hijinks, it’s Doctor Who’s Arthur Darvill, playing time-travelling member of the Time Masters Rip Hunter, who gets the best line:
Rip Hunter. I’m from East London... oh, and THE FUTURE.
Note also that Darvill is wearing a version of the Tenth Doctor’s coat:
Oh, this is going to be a lot of fun — and a whole heap of comic book craziness.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrows will début on The CW next year.
