Trailer Time: DC’s Heroes of Tomorrow Trailer #1 (2015 – The CW) *Plus Series Synopsis*

The CW has been the standard bearer for quality comic book TV shows, first launching Arrow, then this season upping the ante with The Flash.  Next year, they’re spinning a third show out of both previous installments with DC’s Heroes of Tomorrow.  It started with Brandon Routh’s The Atom and the buzz around his run this season on Arrow, but soon we were hearing other heroes and villains in the mix: Hawkgirl, Heatwave, Capt. Cold, and the time-travelling Rip Hunter.  The CW has today released the first trailer and the synopsis for the series, and I’m a little skeptical, but they’ve yet to be anything but stellar.  If DC’s films were run like their TV series, I’d be a whole lot more optimistic about their properties headed to the big screen.  DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere this fall on The 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? 

“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” stars Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”), Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” Superman Returns), Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”), Caity Lotz (“Arrow”), Ciarra Renee (“Pippin”), and Franz Drameh (Edge of Tomorrow), with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”) and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”).

Based on the characters from DC Comics, the new series hails from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Arrow”) serves as executive producer alongside Marc Guggenheim (Eli StonePercy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Warehouse 13″) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” Pan).

Brandon Routh is Cast as The Atom/Ray Palmer and Joins the Cast of Arrow


My favorite Superman movie is Superman Returns.  I’ve never understood the hate for the film, and I think it’s a freaking shame Brandon Routh is the George Lazenby of Supermans (obscure Bond joke check).  I’m excited to see him joining my favorite broadcast show, Arrow, and expanding this wonderful TV DC Universe they’ve been building.  Ray Palmer/The Atom is a very cool character that I’m sure Routh will make his own just as he did Superman….and the Vegan Boyfriend in Scott Pilgrim.  More on the casting below from Coming Soon.
