We’ve spent the last several weeks on Arrow and The Flash rounding up the characters who will appear on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in January. Way back when on The Flash, we first met Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), while more recently, Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber) found a new partner in Jax (Franz Drameh) to create Firestorm. Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) was resurrected on Arrow, as was Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh, who wasn’t actually dead, just micro-sized for awhile). And finally, leading up to last week’s crossover episodes, we were introduced to Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee) and Carter Hall (Falk Henschel) and their backgrounds, setting everything up for this eventual battle against the immortal Vandal Savage (Casper Crump).
The only member of the Legends we haven’t yet met is the man who will bring them all together: Arthur Darvill’s Rip Hunter. That may have to wait until the show’s premiere in January, but what I can tell you is that while on the set in Vancouver this past October with a group of journalists, I got to see Darvill in his full Rip Hunter ensemble — which he rocked — and also got a tour of his Hunter’s ship, the Waverider, which was stunningly crafted. It’s gonna be good, guys.
As for the poster itself, it’s a marked contrast from the original poster released earlier this year (above). For one, we’re seeing the addition of the full Firestorm, as well as Hawkgirl in full costume (along with Carter Hall, who wasn’t featured in the first poster). Sara Lance’s look has been streamlined a lot, and instead of the group just looking out with uncertainty into the unknown, they seems ready to fight. (Plus, instead of the typical blue-to-orange scheme, this one is embracing the full rainbow spectrum).
Check it out for yourself below. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow premieres Thursday, January 21st on the CW.
