‘Legends of Tomorrow’ unveils new Character Posters
Aside from “Star Wars”, one of the biggest things that fans are looking forward to is the upcoming “Legends of Tomorrow” series that will be airing on the CW in the latter part of January. Viewers and fans of the CW DC superhero television shows have been eagerly waiting for its arrival, and thankfully, several new character posters, and interviews which give fans a new perspective about what to expect have been cropping up. WARNING: This article will contain spoilers for “Legends of Tomorrow”.
First off, the writers of “Legends of Tomorrow” have just recently released a new batch of character posters on their official Twitter account, which has also been released to several entertainment and media publications.
The posters feature one “Legends of Tomorrow” character each, with their costumes and their character logos.
Caity Lotz, who portrays the White Canary or Sara Lance, is shown wearing a white tank top, utility belt, and pants; and is brandishing two expandable batons in her hands. One thing to note with Sara’s costume is that she isn’t wearing the wig that fans got used to seeing her wear while she was on “Arrow”. Her logo, of course, is a canary.
According to an interview that Comic Book Resources had with executive producer Phil Klemmer during New York Comic Con, Sara’s story on the show is all about re-connecting to her own humanity, especially as she was just resurrected by a Lazarus Pit.
Brandon Routh’s Ray Palmer or the Atom, is shown getting ready to punch someone while wearing his ATOM suit. His logo, of course, is Bohr’s Atomic Model.
Arthur Darvill’s Rip Hunter is shown wielding a small pistol, while is logo is an hourglass, which befits the “Legends of Tomorrow” time traveler.
Hawkgirl or Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renee) and Hawkman or Carter Hall (Falk Hentschel) are shown ready for action, with matching hawk heads as logos.
Recently, in an interview on actor and director Kevin Smith’s podcast, “Fat Man on Batman”, show creator and executive producer Andrew Kreisberg revealed that the show was really supposed to center around the century’s long romance between the couple. Later on, this idea was expanded to include other characters which had appeared on both “The Flash” and “Arrow” on “Legends of Tomorrow”.
The character poster for Wentworth Miller’s Leonard Snart or Captain Cold featured him holding his cold gun and had a snowflake as his logo. On the other hand, Dominic Purcell’s Heatwave was shown with his heat gun, with a flame of fire as his logo.
According to Klemmer, Heat Wave’s and Captain Cold’s story will focus more on “their psychopathology”, and said that the friendship between the two is reminiscent of the relationship that iconic characters “Butch and Sundance” had.
Last, but not least, the twin character posters that feature Firestorm show both Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), with the Firestorm Matrix as their logo.
