The CW are seriously upping their comic book television show output and, after the success of the hit series Arrow and The Flash, we are next going to get the much-anticipated series Legends of Tomorrow. Actor Brandon Routh plays the role of Ray Palmer aka Atom in Legends of Tomorrow, which Arthur Darvill plays Rip Hunter, with the two stars teasing what to expect from the show.
The Legends of Tomorrow team were chatting to Entertainment Weekly, when Routh explained to them, "Everybody is working within a new group, so everybody is a 'fish out of water'. Working with these new relationships, it's a challenge - but it's fun to watch." We hope you are not wrong there.
Darvill added, "He doesn't want to necessarily be a leader but he's got a job to do," the former Doctor Who star admitted, "Some bad stuff has happened in his past and everyone else's future and he's recruited these people to sort that out. I don't think he wants to get into personal relationships with everyone. He expects it to last one episode, but it takes a lot longer than that. He has to actually form relationships with these people."
As well as seeing Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer aka Atom, and Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, Legends of Tomorrow will also feature Victor Garber as Dr. Martin Stein aka Firestorm, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance aka White Canary, Ciara Renee as Kendra Saunders aka Hawkgirl, and Falk Hentschel as Carter Hall aka Hawkman. Legends of Tomorrow is set to premiere on The CW early in 2016.
