Watch the First Full Trailer For DC's Legends of Tomorrow
We know the legends of today are Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, but who are the legends of tomorrow? That's what the CW's next DC Comics television series aims to answer, as the Legends of Tomorrow gears up to join Arrow and The Flash in the networks acclaimed superpowered lineup by releasing its first full-length trailer

In the trailer, we see Casper Crump chewing loads of scenery as Vandal Savage, an immortal who has conquered the world in the future. Swashbuckler Rip Hunter has traveled back in time to the present in an attempt to prevent Savage's rise to power, and he does so by gathering together a group of heroes: Heatwave, Firestorm, and Captain Cold from The Flash, The Atom and White Canary from Arrow, and newcomers from the comics, Hawkman and Hawkgirl, who look like a blast as a dysfunctional couple who are reincarnated Egyptian gods. The group then travels in time back to the 1970s in an attempt to fix the future, where some Back to the Future-like stuff happens (a disappearing wedding band!) that might make the future even worse. There's also a cameo from Arrow, naturally, and we get the scary foreshadowing line: "I've seen men of steel die and dark knights fall." Watch out, Clark and Bruce!

Overall, the trailer is action-packed, and the show looks very expensive. We don't know if we'd say the effects look movie-quality, but they almost look movie-quality. Take a look at the video below and get excited; Legends of Tomorrow premieres January 21 on the CW.
