'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' Epic Trailer Promises Big Cinematic Action

Heroes and villains join forces to become DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, beginning January 21 on The CW!

Who needs the Justice League when you have DC's Legends of Tomorrow time-traveling to stop the villainous immortal dictator Vandal Savage from conquering the planet. That's the premise behind the Arrow/The Flash spin-off premiering January 21 on the CW. The new trailer is every bit as epic as the description implies. 



"I've seen Men of Steel die and 
Dark Knights fall"
The movie-quality preview introduces us to Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) as he assembles this rag-tag group of heroes and villains to help him travel back in time to fend off Savage from gaining power. The Atom (Brandon Routh), Firestorm (Victor Garber and Franz Drameh), Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee), Hawkman (Falk Hentschel), White Canary (Caity Lotz), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), and Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) rumble through the trailer fighting, flying, shrinking, blasting and flame-throwing.  



Hunter's exposition includes the line, "I've seen Men of Steel die and Dark Knights fall, " which could mean Superman and Batman obviously. If the writers aren't trolling this would be the first time those two have been referenced in the CW universe. However, if they are they could simply play it off as actual knights in armor from medieval times considering Rip is a time traveler. 


Other cool stuff seen in the action-packed trailer is Ray Palmer as the Atom exploding from tiny to regular size while deflecting bullets and beating up the bad guys. Also, we get a look at Firestorm's new suit that reflects the colors of the classic suit from the comics. Hawkgirl and Hawkman are featured heavily with wings fully extended, flying and arguing apparently. Sara Lance as the White Canary fighting side-by-side with a giddy Heat Wave is especially fun. January 21 can't come soon enough.

Check out the trailer and synopsis below.

REVIEW: 'Redneck' #2 by Donny Cates, Lisandro Estherren, and Dee Cunniffe

'Redneck' arrived a month ago redefining the vampire genre by not giving into convention or cliché. In fact, if you've read the first two issues, the vampire angle serves more as subtext than its selling point. It's the perfect approach to this character-driven southern fried drama that simmers with tension and intrigue.

REDNECK #2 STORY: DONNY CATES
ART/COVER: LISANDRO ESTHERREN & DEE CUNNIFFE LETTERER: JOE SABINO
RELEASE DATE: MAY 24
32 PAGES | Full Color | Mature | $3.99
★★★★☆ (4/5)
The Bowman's way of life just got upended and what was once a peaceful and secluded existence is on the verge of war. The vampires of Texas keep to themselves, raise their cattle, drink its blood and sell the meat through their BBQ joint. Seems like a brilliant front to keep them in the shadows while staking out a living. All that is threatened when one of their own is killed after a night on the town. This issues fills in the holes to what might have happened and what the hell is…

PREVIEW: 'Tet' #4 by Paul Allor and Paul Tucker

We've seen Eugene's story. But during his last day's in Vietnam, he finally learns how Ha survived the war. She's always been much stronger than him; and much stronger than he's given her credit for. With all their secrets gone, Ha and Eugene must decide how to move forward.

REVIEW: 'Farmhand' #1 by Rob Guillory and Taylor Wells

The artist of the offbeat and award-winning Chew with John Layman is back with an equally weird and delightful dark new tale. Rob Guillory meshes a conciliatory father-son relationship with a hybrid biomedical-agri farm. 'Farmhand' is a new quirky horror comic that is just irresistible.


FARMHAND #1
Writer: Rob Guillory Artist: Rob Guillory, Taylor Wells Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: July 11, 2018 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★★1/2 (4.5/5)
The tone of the debut issue is literally found from cover to cover. Those hands that Jedidiah Jenkins is watering on the cover are not from the living dead trying to break through the soil but actual farm-raised appendages. Jedidiah found a way to grow body parts like he would crops creating an industry to benefit mankind. He even has a high-tech and interactive farm tour describing his great achievement. It's sufficiently creepy but benevolent in the spirit of Chew.  
You would think Jedidiah had it all but in fact, he's been e…

WONDER WOMAN OF THE DAY: Fitness Model Gia Macool Embodies the Amazon Princess

The closest we'll ever get, probably, to superheroes in real life is through the great work of cosplayers. You see them at every pop culture convention from the very basic to extremely elaborate costume design. However, you don't have to be a cosplayer to enjoy dressing up as your favorite superhero from time to time. Take fitness model and entrepreneur Gia Macool for example. An accomplished fitness competitor and model, Macool is also a big fan of DC Comics' Wonder Woman. She shows her love of the iconic Amazon Princess in her fitness wear, meal prep accessories and even a full blown photo shoot in a Wonder Woman costume. 

For decades comics have featured very muscular superheroes, male and female, epitomizing the human form at its strongest. So when bodybuilders and fitness pros decide to suit up as these costumed heroes, they are the embodiment of those fictional characters in the flesh. Macool looks like she stepped out of the pages of a Wonder Woman comic with a suit …

Nancy’s returned to her hometown of Bayport to sniff out the sender of an ominous letter that may have to do with her mother’s death seven years ago. Re-teaming with her childhood crime-solving team -- Bess, George, and The Hardy Boys -- Nancy is determined to get to the bottom of things.


But she hasn’t even been back in town a day, and someone’s already tried to kill them once. Can they follow the clues in time to stop it from happening again? This modern take on the classic mystery icon continues from KELLY THOMPSON (Hawkeye, Star Wars, Rogue & Gambit) and JENN ST-ONGE (Giant Days, The Misfits)!
