'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: 'Witchblade' #1 by Caitlin Kittredge, Roberta Ingranata, and Bryan Valenza

The next iteration of Witchblade has arrived and Top Cow has assembled another great creative team to bring the legendary wielder of the powerful artifact to life.


WITCHBLADE #1
Writer: Caitlin Kittredge Artist: Roberta Ingranata, Bryan Valenza Publisher: Image Comics Release Date: December 6, 2017 Cover Price: $3.99
Score: ★★★☆☆ (3/5)
Handed down from one worthy woman warrior to another for ions, the Witchblade gauntlet has chosen its next host in wartime journalist Alex Underwood. She suffers from PTSD and helps battered women find justice. The book opens with her bloodied and dying. The non-linear story jumps around from what led up to her situation, to helping an abused cop's wife, to having visions probably induced by the gauntlet. She rejects the growing power of the Witchblade it but that could kill her. 
The trouble with origin stories like this is the predictability of passing the torch to another chosen one. We know that Alex will eventually take to the Witchblade and use…

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 …
