The second DC Comics spin-offs from the CW‘s successful Arrow is coming to television and we’ve got a new trailer to prove it. Producer Greg Berlanti is once again expanding the CW’s superhero lineup with Legends of Tomorrow, the first of the CW’s lineup to feature a superhero team that includes Victor Garber and Franz Drameh as Firestorm, Caity Lotz as White Canary, Brandon Routh as the Atom, Wentworth Miller as Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Heatwave, Ciara Renee as Hawkgirl, Falk Hentschel as Hawkman, and Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter. Check it out after the jump.Here’s the tweet from DC Comics announcing the new trailer:

So let’s take a look:
It’s an interesting set-up. The team is relatively new at the whole superhero game, and two of them are really super criminals, which should lead to some interesting scenes between them and those of the heroes that are very earnest in their hero-ing… I’m look at you Atom. Next they move through time so we’ll get some fun looks at the past and future as the team tracks down Vandal Savage.
Let’s not forget the whole building a team out of strong-willed individuals that Rip Hunter will face, along with knowing what happens to each of them in the future. That has to be tempting… the opportunity to tell someone something, or perhaps have something slip that might change the timeline. I think we’ll see some of that in the pilot it looks like. Did you notice the wedding ring disappear off his hand?
Legends of Tomorrow hits the small screen on Thursdays, starting January 21st, 2016.
