New Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Movie In The Works

First Look at CW's 'DC Legends of Tomorrow'

We break down the cast, and discuss its big differences to a certain Marvel team.

Story by Matt Cummings

Now that CW's Arrow and The Flash have released their finales, it's time to look at another superhero series debuting on the network next Fall. And just like Warner Bros' movie adaptation of the team up Suicide Squad, this one's got a lot of familiar faces. Titled DC's Legends of Tomorrow, the series brings together a collection of heroes from Arrow and The Flash, some of which were introduced this season. The Atom (Brandon Routh), FIRESTORM (Robbie Amell), Hawkgirl (Kendra Saunders), White Canary (Kaity Lotz), and villain Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller). Scientist Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber) looks to be the team's version of Professor X, leading the way backstage and serving as the team's morals/conscience.

The announcement was made this week at the Upfront media event in Los Angeles by showing the trailer below, and has already been a subject on our last Inside the Bucket podcast,. Check it out, and then scroll down to learn our thoughts:


Unlike the Supergirl trailer which landed with a thud on the Internet, Legends of Tomorrow has received a good response from critics and nerds alike. On the outside however, it would appear CW and Producer Greg Berlanti were borrowing liberally from the team make-up of Marvel's The Avengers. A guy in a red suit who can fly? An archer with issues? A hot female assassin? While it might look like someone should be filing a Cease and Desist order to CW, there are several unique differences that should be mentioned.

First, the tech billionaire The Atom can both fly and shrink, merging two Marvel characters (Iron Man and Ant-man) into one person. Second, Hawkgirl and the resurrected White Canary represent the only team with two women on it, while a character like Firestorm can only be seen currently in movie form (Fantastic Four). Forming this team gets DC's product out long before Marvel/Netflix's The Defenders doesn't arrive until they've released both Luke Cage and aka Jessica Jones. This will give CW plenty of time to flesh out this team's quirks, no doubt resulting in a couple of hopefully epic throwdowns.

CW has hit paydirt with its superhero lineup, with Arrow and The Flash as two heroes who've appeared on each other's shows this season, mixing up secondary characters and giving everyone a moment to establish their quirkiness. Each were renewed for next season, which gives Legends a chance to further mix in the team-up concept to stretch to three series. Both retain their current positions on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, respectively.

What say you, Sandwich-ers? Do you like the preview, and what stories would you like to see CW tell to expand this DC universe ever further?
