DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow And Supergirl First Look Trailers
While DC Comics is certainly lagging behind Marvel in the movie department, having yet to begin their plans for their big universe, with regards to TV series they’re knocking it out of the park. Yes Marvel indeed has some really good ones too with Agents of Shield, and I’m dying to watch Daredevil. It’s an awesome time to be alive for geeks like us! DC’s Arrow and The Flash clearly weren’t enough, because we’re also getting an awesome all-star team up with DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Supergirl.
The first trailer for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has just been released, and you can check it out above. CW said in the trailer description:
Time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter must assemble a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat to the planet…and to time itself. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is coming soon to The CW.
The series stars The Atom, who had his origin story in Arrow’s third season, Captain Cold and Heatwave – also known as Micheal Scofield and Lincoln, Black Canary (who is shown to have been revived using the Lazarus Pit in Arrow), FireStorm and Hawkgirl, a first timer for the show. They’ll face off against the immortal super villain Vandal Savage, who has been alive “thousands of years” and commands “the most powerful army the world has ever seen.” They’ll be aided by Rip Hunter from the literal future’s Time Masters, who protect history.
Based on the trailer it looks just as fun as The Flash, and knows very well that it’s a comic book. It looks to be brimming with confidence and personality similarly to The Flash in its first season, which clearly shows how far CW has come with its DC line up. I’m quite keen to give it a try based on the trailer, especially since most of these characters have already been established, and who can disagree with cameos from The Flash and Arrow themselves.
Interestingly Arrow was sporting his usual green in the trailer, which is funny considering how the third season recently concluded. But that’s writing for next week.

Right that’s DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. But what of Supergirl? Here’s the first look trailer, which is a full 6 minutes in length and seems to give away a heck of a lot. Although The Flash also had an equally long preview, and it turned out good! Supergirl’s official description goes like this:
It’s not a bird. It’s not a plane. It’s not a man. It’s Supergirl. In the new drama from the world of DC Comics, Superman’s cousin, Kara Zor-El, embraces her superhuman abilities and becomes the hero she was always meant to be. This Fall on CBS.
Supergirl stars Kara, Supergirl, who as it seems from the trailer wants to stop being ordinary and hiding her powers and instead help people. Her cousin Clark Kent is referenced quite a bit, which is a nice touch, but he isn’t seen in the trailer itself. Advised against it by her friend, and rejected by the military (at first), Supergirl sets out to be the alien them Kryptonites are and do super stuff. The show seems to have a kind of cheesy and light tone, which gives it its own charm and appeal, which is a little different from DC’s other shows.
While I think the preview looks pretty decent and has some potential about it, it’s easy to see why some people would call it girly. I reject that if it’s a criticism however, because them social justice warriors are always complaining about representation and, well, here’s a superhero series trying to appeal to female geeks. Sure it can appeal to guy geeks as well, but my point is that it’s nice to see the range of comic material on offer now, both from DC and Marvel. I’ll leave you to watch the Supergirl trailer and decide for yourself whether it’s something you’ll watch yourself, but remember that target audience is important. The Flash, Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl all have their own tones and styles, even if the first three are absolutely interconnected. And that’s a good thing.
Will Supergirl or DC’s Legends of Tomorrow turn out good? Who knows. But I’m keen nonetheless. Let us know what you think in the comments.
