Watch: ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ Trailer Shows Time-Traveling Team in Action

The CW has released the first full trailer for midseason superhero spinoff “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” showing the ragtag bunch of heroes — and antiheroes — traveling through time to defeat immortal villain Vandal Savage (Casper Crump).

The series stars a number of characters who have previously been introduced on The CW’s “Arrow” and “The Flash” including Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee); Ray Palmer/the Atom (Brandon Routh); Sara Lance/White Canary (Caity Lotz); both halves of Firestorm, Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jay Jackson (Franz Drameh); Mick Rory/Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell); and Leonard Snart/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), along with newcomers Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and Carter Hall/Hawkman (Falk Hentschel).

The new footage visits London in 2166, and sends the group back to 1975 in pursuit of Savage. There’s also plenty of squabbling between the team members, as reincarnated lovers Hawkman and Hawkgirl come to blows, along with some obvious friction between criminals Heatwave and Captain Cold and the rest of the Legends. “Arrow’s” Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) and Laurel Lance (Katie Cassidy) also make an appearance in the footage.

“I’ve seen Men of Steel die and Dark Knights fall,” Rip ominously warns in the promo, name-checking two of the DC universe’s most memorable heroes. “Your entire 21st century world will suffer.”

Ahead of the “Legends of Tomorrow” premiere, “Arrow” and “The Flash” will air a two-night crossover event beginning Dec. 1, designed to set up the new spinoff by introducing Vandal Savage and the mythology of Hawkman and Hawkgirl. Watch the trailer for the crossover below.

“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” will premiere Thursday, January 21 at 8 p.m. before the season three premiere of “The 100.”
