As TV’s upfronts continue, the CW is doubling down on its DC related program with Legends of Tomorrow, the recently announced show set in the Flash/Arrow-verse. Her’es a look at Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/The Atom, Victor Garber as Martin Stein, Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave, Ciara Renée as Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl, Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, and Caity Lotz as Sara Lance. Many more people with guns, goggles and grins.
It’s not hard to see why they’re sticking with this plan: the CW’s viewership is soaring, with s 12 percent viewership ise especially among the hard to reach demo of younger men, who seem to like this superhero stuff.
While Constantine may have been the sole comic book failure from last year’s bumper crop of shows, this was clearly an outlier.
Update: Here’s the new trailer!
