First Look Trailer: “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”

Half a year ago, The CW released a ‘proof of concept’ reel it screened for network exhibitors for “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” its proposed ambitious spin-off of “Arrow” and “The Flash” that would take key characters from both shows along with some new ones and put them in an event series that involves time-travel and all sorts of sci-fi craziness.

Today, the network has officially announced a Thursday 8pm January 21st premiere for the new series and released a three-minute trailer composed of all new and completed footage from some of the sixteen episodes being produced for the network.

The show has been described as having a pesudo-anthology style, with each season being essentially self contained. As a result the series will involve a revolving roster of heroes – allowing any of these characters to die at any point.
