DC's Legends of Tomorrow
« on: November 23, 2015, 11:11:18 PM »
The first real trailer for Legends of Tomorrow is out.  Highlights for me: Hawkman and Hawkgirl in flight and Fire storm gets a real costume.

"I've seen Men of Steel die and Dark Knights fall"

Most interesting quote.  Not really that significant, but interesting.

Also, love the Firestorm costume.  The footage also explains why the wings are never visible in the photographs--they fold up and disappear the instant they land.

So far as a shared universe goes, the Arrowverse is so much better integrated than the Marvel Cinematic Universe. To be fair, the DC Cinematic Universe looks like it's going to be terrible. Then again, the DCAU beats all of them.

Yes,but DC movies still manage to screw up the TV shows.Because they will appear in the movies we dont get: Hal Jordan,Ted Kord,Booster Gold,Suicide Squad(in this season),possibly The Question.And now Supergirl got Checkmate.

There are already rumors that season 2 will have a very different cast and story, among them, John Constantine.  I'm definitely would like a see a rotating cast and story myself, so I'd be fine if this were true.

And--there's already talk of canceling the show, before it even premiers.  Apparently, it turned out to be very expensive to make.

You would think that they would figure out a budget before getting the fans all excited about the show.......

Well the first season is a done deal, so that won't change.  It just will probably mean no other seasons.  It sounds like they plan on replacing it with a different spin off though if that happens, so that might be good.

Well, anything with lots of FX, and all of these characters, pretty much, need lots of FX, tends to be expensive.  I can't say I was super excited about this, but I'm sorry for the folks that were excited.

I'm wondering if the guy next to Mordru is Sinestro...

Looks like the group from Superman's 50th Anniversary show.

It is Sinestro. With Giganta next to him.  "SC" is a character they made up for the show. He was a hero called Retired Man, formerly known as the Scarlet Cyclone.

Both specials were corny as sin, with Adam West, Burt Ward and Frank Gorshin suiting up again being the best thing about them.

I've found out, not only is it Sinestro, but it's Charlie Callas as Sinestro, and Howard Morris as Dr. Sivana.

I don't like how Heatwave is a rapist. But I do like how they travel through time and fight.

And Retired Man is noted character actor William Schallert, most well known for being on The Patty Duke Show. He's still alive, at age 93. Jeff Altman was Weather Wizard, and most of the other villains (and a lot of the heroes!) were a bunch of unknowns.

There were two specials, as I said before. One was a roast hosted by Ed McMahon of all people, but I don't exactly recall what the plot of the other one was. Since I haven't seen them since they originally aired and I was either 8 or 9 at the time. But I do seem to recall that the Batmobile was in the non-roast episode.

He asks Firestorm where he got his roofies, a drug used exclusively for date defile. I get that he's a bad guy but that's a bit much if he's supposed to be an unlikely hero and implies too much about him to be good for a joke.

While I can't say for sure what the writer's intention for that line was, the idea that it is used "exclusively" for date defile is complete nonsense.  Not only do are roofies legitimately used for medical use, 50% of forged prescribed use for illegal recreation are roofies and they are also commonly used by thief in some countries to steal from victims without them remembering inconvenient details like who robbed them.

So while defile is one explanation, thieves use them too, and he is a thief so. . .

I really feel like roofies and drugging women are linked together enough in our culture that there wasn't any question what he meant but clearly I was wrong. I hope you guys are right and we don't have a time traveling Cosby on the loose.

The whole "roofie" comment was meant as a joke.  If you think about it, he's asking an old guy, where he got them from.  I though it was kind of funny, but some may have taken it too seriously.  You know, instead of thinking that Heatwave could be a rapist, have you ever though that he was calling the prof a pediphile???  Okay, enough creepy talk.  Back to the show!

Holy Crud!!!!

4 teased upcoming characters, which include Hourman, Sandman, Srgt. Rock, and...

Well, I'll let you read it.  File this under characters I NEVER expected to see in live action (along with King Shark, Firestorm, Gorilla Grodd, etc. )

These four coming to Legends of tomorrow is just shows me how good  Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg  are at running the Arrow-Flash verse. The show is good, but adding all these new characters to the ones introduced over the years in Arrow and Flash is so cool.

Consider this list. Green Arrow, Flash, Black Canary, Speedy, Firestorm, Vibe(non-costume), Mr Terrific(non-costume), Wildcat, Deathstroke, Amanda Waller, Vandal Savage, Merlyn, Ras al Ghul, Hawkman , Hawkgirl, Atom, Captain Cold, Heatwave, Reverse Flash, Jay Garrick. That's an amazing list, and its going to get better and better.

Don't get me wrong. I love Agent carter and Shield. But the Arrowverse just gets better and better each and every week.

In the sixth episode of the series, the titular “Legends” will travel to the year 2046 where they will meet not only a goatee-sporting and one-armed Oliver Queen, but also Old Man Oliver’s son, Connor Hawke.

I watched the better part of an episode, where very disappointingly:

This certainly didn't do much for my enthusiasm. 

Anyway, my reaction was much like this:
http://ourvaluedcustomers.blogspot.com/2016/02/while-discussing-superhero-tv-shows.html

It struck me as far too much like the other DC TV shows, none of which have grabbed me, and all of which have seemed to be far too low in quality for me.  I wasn't really expecting to like it, so it is entirely possible I'm not giving it a fair shake.
