Trailer Time: Legends of Tomorrow

I have been loving both of DC's TV shows: Arrow and The Flash.

So when they announced they were doing a big team show, I was very excited.

I know that they can't use the BIG guys (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman), and this trailer kind of acknowledges that these aren't the JLA or the Avengers; they aren't the best of the best.

These people are the best they could find for the job.

I think this show has a lot of potential to highlight a good deal of the characters who have been on the margins of the other shows.  And it opens up a whole new dimension of storytelling with the time travel.

I also dig the fact that this team requires to "villains."  Particularly, Captain Cold was always, in my eyes, like Mr. White from Reservoir Dogs:  he is a murder and a criminal, but he does have an unwavering moral code to which he holds.  I think this will make for an interesting dynamic to the team.

  1. I'm looking forward to the show.
    The team-dynamic will be interesting, and the backlog of characters they could draw from to make cameos/add to the team is exciting.
    I hope it doesn't take itself too seriously though. There's lots of potential for it to be quirkier than its counterparts. I think Rip Hunter could work well with the other characters (comic-relief).
