VIDEO Legends of Tomorrow trailer - Arrow spin off looks insane

First there was Arrow.

Then there was The Flash.

Now we have Legends of Tomorrow!

This spin-off business is getting a bit ridiculous but Arrow and The Flash are both highly entertaining and if this trailer is anything to go by there's a lot to look forward to in Legends as well. It doesn't hurt that there's a great cast to start off with, including plenty of familiar faces like Brandon Routh, Victor Garber, Caity Lotz and of course Mr Flash himself Grant Gustin. And hey check out Rory from Doctor Who (Arthur Darvill) who is playing a much cooler character here as a time-travelling Rip Hunter. Is he basically a Time Lord?!

The show is all about creating a crossover event to bring a large number of characters together with a new villain in the form of Vandal Savage. In the comics he was originally a cave man who was exposed to the radiation from a meteor and became immortal. He's strong, fast and is a certified genius - and he's also had a lot of time to study every martial art you can think of. Which came in handy when he was particpating in some of the greatest wars known to mankind.

He's a bad dude, basically.

Legends of Tomorrow will air in 2016.
