The CW has announced today that Arrow/The Flash spinoff DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere on Thursday, January 21st at 8/7c.
That’s obviously very exciting news, but even better is the fact that we have our first proper look at the series. While a trailer was released earlier this year, that contained footage which was shot specifically for the promo, not material that’s actually going to end up airing in Legends of Tomorrow itself.
This new preview establishes the direction this series will be taking, as time traveller Rip Hunter assembles a group to stop Vandal Savage from taking over Earth. With that comes some very cool reveals, including an actual superhero costume for Firestorm (it’s about time), and most shockingly of all, references to Batman and Superman. There even appears to be some Kryptonite in the trailer; could we see Supergirl somewhere down the line?

That remains to be seen, but Legends of Tomorrow is looking great so far. It’s clear the network has spent even more money on the series than they do The Flash, and seeing how this one comes together promises to be very exciting indeed.
