On the CW’s January schedule: ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ and a vampire shuffle

24 Nov 2015 | Author: | No comments yet »

‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ debuts Jan. 21.

The CW’s popular DC Comics series Arrow and The Flash have both been in top form so far this season, but there’s a growing minority of fans who are a bit perturbed that so much of the beginning of both seasons has been devoted to setting up the third strand of Greg Berlanti’s superhero empire on the network: Legends of Tomorrow. Together, they will help Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) save the world from an immortal man, Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) threatening to take over future in the year 2166. Now there’s not much left to set up because the CW has officially announced the show will debut Jan. 21, and has dropped a new full-length trailer for the series. Thursday slot. “The 100” will start its third season at 9 the same night. “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals” move to Fridays, beginning Jan. 29. “Reign” has its winter finale Jan. 22 and will return later in the season, The CW said.

The cast includes Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”), Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” “Superman Returns”), Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”), Caity Lotz (“Arrow”), Ciara Renee (“Pippin”) and Franz Drameh (“Edge of Tomorrow”), with Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller, who both starred in “The Flash” and “Prison Break.” The rest of the nine-person team includes: The Atom/Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), White Canary/Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Hawkman (Falk Hentschel), Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée), and Firestorm—the new team of Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh). It’s a heavy character investment for a second spin-off of Arrow, but putting a bunch of heroes together in a time machine with a specific mission seems to have just the right tone of outright lunacy.
