DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is finally coming on Warner TV and will premiere on January 22, 9PM, same day as the US.
I have been waiting for the premiere of Legends of Tomorrow after it was announced last year, following the successful runs of The Flash and Arrow, and I was lucky to score a first-look of the pilot episode earlier today, thanks to the people from Warner TV Philippines for the invitation, especially to Marianne Lee, Vice President – Content, General Entertainment, at Turner International Asia Pacific (Turner).
Unfortunately, I can’t discuss what happened on the first episode and made a promise not to divulge any exciting scenes like how Time Master Rip Hunter convinced eight ‘legends’ to join his hunt against Vandal Savage, the immortal villain set to destroy the world, as we know it. Oops!
Set in 2166, Rip Hunter asked the Time Master Council permission to recruit Firestorm (Jefferson Jackson and Prof. Martin Stein), Sara Lance aka White Canary, malcontents Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold and Mick Rory aka Heat Wave, former ancient couple Kendra Saunders aka Hawkgirl and Carter Hall aka Hawkman, and billionaire inventor Ray Palmer aka The Atom to stop Savage and his diabolical doomsday plan on future Earth.
The pilot toyed on light to dark storyline with witty punchlines and one liners from the ‘superhero’ ensemble.
After watching the first episode, I am now excited to see the next full 15 episodes that will complete the first season of Legends of Tomorrow. Following the footsteps of The Flash and Arrow, the possibility of mid-season break might be around the corner too.
It’s nice to see Caity Loltz reprising her Canary role and this time donning a new white costume designed by Cisco Ramon.
What intrigued me was Vandal Savage’s actor Casper Crump description as a ‘recurring guest star’. Hmmm… are we not going to see a lot of Savage in future episodes? Well, at least there is Chronos.
Okay, enough of this preview. Legends of Tomorrow will be seen every Friday night beginning on January 22 on Warner TV.
You can also catch new episodes from Arrow on Thursday January 21, 9PM; iZombie on Wednesday January 20, 9PM.
Warner TV is available on SKYcable Channel 77, SKYcable HD Channel 197, Cignal HD Channel 119, Destiny Cable (Digital) Channel 77, Destiny Cable (Analog) Channel 80, and Cable Link Channel 30.
PS. Turn up your ear radar for some Star Wars references on the pilot episode.
