Legends Of Tomorrow Trailer…The Atom Actually Shrinks This Time

routh-atomSo, the CW has had a lot of success with Arrow and The Flash, so why not use some more characters from their combined universe that Watson already hates as a concept to make a team show?

Legends of Tomorrow is that show, featuring the Atom, a resurrected Sara Lance as the White Canary, Captain Cold and Heat Wave, Firestorm, Hawkgirl, and a Rip Hunter with that smarmy demeanor that makes you just want to pop the guy in the face.  With what looks like a guest appearance at least by the Flash, and Vandal Savage as a bad guy who may have a giant robot, well, it has the potential to be fun.

Oh, and Ray Palmer finally shrinks.

Trailer after the cut.

Will There Be A Justice League TV Series Before A Movie Comes Out?

"Not in the face!  Not in the face!"
“Not in the face! Not in the face!”

The CW has had some success with TV versions of Green Arrow and the Flash on, well, Arrow and The Flash, also known as the shows my wife rolls her eyes at when I say I’m going to sit down and watch one.  Now, this season Arrow introduced Ray Palmer, also known as the Atom, and while he so far is more of an Iron Man than a guy who can shrink, the guy’s gotten a lot of screentime and Brandon Routh has been a welcome and charismatic addition to the series.  Given how The Flash began life as an Arrow spin-off, would it be safe to assume The Atom is next?  Eh, not quite.

Instead, the CW is looking to do a superhero team show, and this leads me to wonder…will it be a version of the Justice League?
