Today we finally know what the name of the new Arrow/Flash spin-off series will be called, and it has been given a full series commitment, too!
The show has been talked about for months now, and even though it seemed like a slam dunk, it still needed to make it through Pilot Season in order for it to be official.
DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW
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”); 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, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”), Marc Guggenheim (“Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”).
I kind of hope there is a lot of time travel involved, but not Doctor Who level time travel, but just enough jumping around to keep everyone guessing and on their toes. Of course Arthur Darvill playing Rip Hunter will be interesting to see and of course everyone wants to see how Ciarra Renee approaches Hawkgirl. I’m curious as to why we are only seeing half of Firestorm, and hope that gets resolved sooner than later.
