There has been a lot of speculation over the last few months about the mysterious Arrow/Flash spinoff series, with one of the biggest mysteries being the title. With the CW announcing its very limited lineup of new pickups for next season, we finally learned officially that the title would be called Legends of Tomorrow and that it has scored a straight to series order without even a pilot.
Showing absolute faith in the team behind both Arrow and The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow has been picked up for the upcoming season. This special teamup series was given its first official synopsis alongside the pickup as well:
When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?
DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW stars Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”); Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” “Superman Returns”); Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”); Caity Lotz (“Arrow”); Ciarra Renee (“Pippin”); Franz Drameh (“Edge of Tomorrow”); with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”); and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”). Based on the characters from DC Comics, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”), Marc Guggenheim (“Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13″) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”).
The only question is when in fact it will be aired, with the original speculation being it would be no earlier than January, but some are still saying a fall airdate is possible.
