DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Gets A Premiere Date

Warner Brothers impressed Hall H attendees last year with a panel specifically geared toward its various DC television adaptations, and are expected to do so again this year when they take the stage on Saturday night from 8:00 to 11:00. Arrow, The Flash, Gotham, and Supergirl are all expected to be featured, and we hope to learn more about two other upcoming projects, Legends of Tomorrow and Blackbirds (the Teen Titans series in development at TNT) as well. Both series are still in early stages of development and aren't expected to arrive until 2016, but some information on their development would be a welcome addition to an already exciting panel.

Love ’em of hate ’em, you’d have to admit that The CW’s DC superhero TV shows have done an excellent job of cross-promoting their characters with Arrow and The Flash, and next year they’ll be adding a whole new series to the mix: DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow.

We’ve known that the show was set for an early 2016 premiere for a while, but now, thanks to a recent interview with Warner Bros. president of television Peter Roth, it appears that we have an exact air date.

Greg [Berlanti] is currently shepherding the highest rated number one and two series of the year, with a third series, Legends of Tomorrow, that we have very high hopes for, on Jan. 21.

So, there you have it, folks, January 21st is when the show will finally be with us. And given what we’ve seen so far from it, we can hardly wait.

For those unfamiliar with the series, DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow will feature characters from both The Flash and Arrow, while introducing some new faces into the mix as well. The story will follow a time traveler named Rip Hunter, who sets out to bring together a group of disparate superheroes (and villains) together in the hope that they’ll be able to defeat the greater threat of the evil Vandal Savage.

Tell us, are you looking forward to the next installment of the CW’s expanding small-screen DC universe? And do you think there’s more to come? Let us know in the comments section below.
