DC's Legends of Tomorrow (CW)

    When heroes alone are not enough… 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 – 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?
    As previously reported, the show stars Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heatwave), Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein/half of Firestorm), Caity Lotz, (Sara Lance/Canary on "Arrow," though the character died at the start of this current season) and franchise newcomers Ciara Renee (Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl), Franz Drameh (Jay Jackson) and Arthur Darvill (Rip Hunter)
    The spinoff was ordered sight unseen — and has yet to film a pilot. The CW is expected to unveil a special trailer shot specifically for the upfronts.

    Going from the plot could Vandal Savage be the immortal threat? Being ordered for a full season without a pilot is very good news

    I assume time travel will be used to bring
    Caity Lotz
    back?

    That's what I'm assuming. Maybe
    she is taken from sometime before she joined Arrow and is still a cold blooded assassin and once the series ends she is returned to the past with her memory erased

    Also some of the cast will be appearing in the Flash season finale

    If we're going with time travel and Rip Hunter, we had better get Booster Gold.

    Upfronts are next Thursday and there supposedly will be a 3 minute teaser.

    Victor Garber (Martin Stein) said in a recent interview, "Yeah, I think it's going to be a very fun ride. I really honestly can't tell you much about it except it is completely new and it will involve a lot of interesting people. No. We haven't filmed any of it yet - but, it is going straight to series. We start filming in August and it will be on in January. Yes, it will be on the CW." This could mean that the show will be something like Agent Carter and run mid season giving Flash and Arrow a break.

    A tight 13-16 episode season is always great to see... hopefully they keep it lean and mean with no filler. Works really well for The 100.

    Wouldn't surprise me if a few of the CW shows move to the 13-16 episode format next season, like The 100 and iZombie did this season, as their schedule is getting fairly jam-packed (the downside to being one of the few US networks producing quality programmes)...

    I'd like to see this, Arrow, The Flash, Supernatural, The 100 and iZombie all get 16 episodes a piece which will allow for better quality storylines and eliminate all those tedious breaks...

    Yeah a 16 episode season for Arrow and Flash would be better. Have the first 8 episodes until December and then have Legends start in January with the other 2 shows taking a 2 month break. One thing though, would it not be better having all 3 shows on the one night instead of 2?

    Wouldn't be possible to have them on the same night, even if it would be ideal. The CW only has 2 hours Monday - Friday, between 8-10pm... The way US Network TV works is really weird, it's not like say Channel 4 over here, where there's new original programming almost constantly.

    The CW only has 10 hours a week to put these shows on, because it doesn't even have the weekends like the other networks do. And then because Arrow and The Flash are two of the best rated shows on the network they put them on separate nights to boost the ratings for whatever show is following them.

    This will be great.

    Never realised that, just checked the CW tv schedule and you're right about the 2 hours everyday. It will be interesting to see what show they will pair this up with

    Wow how did I miss the thread :o


    Is Caity Lotz defo playing Sarah Lance/Canary V1 again


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,123 ✭✭✭ GodlessM


    I know he isn't announced, but I'd bet money that Roy shows up in this. In several of his scenes with Thea this week, the Atom theme music was playing over them, which I'm guessing will be the theme for this show (similar to how the Flash theme played when Barry first showed up in Arrow).


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,912 ✭✭✭ EoinMcLovin


    When his departure was announced I think they mentioned that he will pop up in Flash and legends of tomorrow.

    I wonder is this going to be set in alternate reality/parallel universe or the future hence the title name.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,912 ✭✭✭ EoinMcLovin

    I think it going to be primarily set in the present but some characters (Sara) are from a different time period. Characters from Flash and Arrow will appear and there will be some time travel.

    Also it has been confirmed that Caity Lotz is playing White Canary and the show will launch in January or February.

    So is that Rip, Hawkgirl, Stein, Canary, ATOM, Cold and Heatwave? Strange having half of Firestorm and a white canary. Maybe before she got the black outfit

    The trailer that will be released later on today will reveal the White Canary's connection to Sara lance. And that could be a Martin Stein from before he became FireStorm or he gets replaced with Jason Rusch

    I hate time travel. It's such a lazy story telling device. There have been a few instances in shows of it working.....occasionally its done well but most of the time it just becomes a complete mess.

    I'll give it a chance though.

    It's been confirmed that vandal savage is the big bad and sara is back via Lazarus pit and also includes Hawkgirl flying and The Atom shrinking

    *Please note that there is a spoiler in relation to the Arrow Season 3 finale in the first video





  • Registered Users Posts: 55,467 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    That first look gives away Ray's cliffhanger in the Arrow season finale.

    I will put a note in the post about spoilers in relation to Arrow Season finale

    THAT LOOKS AMAZING. Can't believe we're finally getting the real Atom!


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,123 ✭✭✭ GodlessM


    I'd bet that Damian Darhk is the one who brought Sara back.

    Going from what happened at the end of the Arrow finale
    I'd guess that Malcolm (new Ra'As Al Ghul) revives her to appease Nyssa

    with regards the last few comments
    didnt they say you could only resurrect someone for so long sarah could be decomposing by now.

    She was dead for several months so she probably wouldn't have decomposed as much but was probably in the pit for a much longer time than Thea, who was in for only a few minutes after being dead for at least a day. There will probably be serious repercussions for being in the pit for so long which could affect her personality

    but didn't they say in arrow at one point that someone could only be saved for a relatively small period after there death

    Unless
    Rip Hunter takes her body right after being buried and brings it to the present where Malcolm allows him to use the pit to revive her
