New Legends of Tomorrow Trailer Includes Star Wars Reference
With The Force Awakens being even better than advertised and destroying box office records, it's not surprising that other properties will want to capitalize on Star Wars mania. That includes the CW's upcoming superhero show Legends of Tomorrow, which shoehorns in a surprisingly funny Star Wars reference into its latest trailer. 

The trailer showcases even more action than the first trailer did, which is saying something. It features all eight main members of the team (that's Hawkman, Hawkgirl, The Atom, White Canary, Captain Cold, Heatwave, and two Firestorms, if you're keeping track), describing them as, "8 outcasts, 1 chance to become legends." We get to see White Canary stab and kick a bunch of people, Hawkman and Hawkgirl do a little flying, the Firestorms acting as a comic duo, tons of explosions, and then Captain Cold delivering the soon to be immortal line: "We go out for one lousy drink and you guys somehow manage to pick a fight with Boba Fett!"

While we're sure this is only scratching the surface of what's sure to be a deluge of Star Wars references in the coming months (not that we're complaining), we think it adds to the comic sensibility of what looks like it's going to be a very entertaining show. You can check out the trailer yourself below, and then the show itself when it premieres on January 21.
