The CW's DC world gets bigger in new, comic-inspired Legends of Tomorrow trailer

In case it wasn’t made clear enough, The CW wants everyone to know just how connected its ambitious DC universe has become. 

The network dropped a new trailer for the upcoming team-up series Legends of Tomorrow, which will bring together characters from both The Flash and Arrow to create a third series in the burgeoning lineup. Ever since Arrow launched three years ago, The CW has never been afraid to let these shows lean on their comic heritage — and that’s never been more apparent than in the latest trailer.

Though light on new footage, the trailer does an excellent job of catching up would-be viewers on the state of the Arrow-verse, kicking off with Arrow’s story before introducing The Flash (all in a gorgeous, comic-infused presentation). But about halfway through is where it gets really fun, as we officially meet the roster of new heroes (and antiheroes) set to headline Legends of Tomorrow. If you needed a refresher on the team — or their comic looks — this is a perfect place to start.

Check out the new trailer below and let us know what you think:
