Firstly, if you haven’t seen the trailer for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow yet you need to scroll to the bottom of the page right away and rectify that…
Ok, now that we’ve all seen and, yes, loved, the trailer it’s time to talk about the structure of the team.
Brandon Routh, who plays Ray Palmer/The ATOM and former Superman, has been talking about where he’ll be in the new series which picks up from Arrow and The Flash for a mid-season appearance early next year: “I think Ray will tend to be a little more of a leader of the team, having been a businessman and running Palmertech, being a billionaire, he knows how to bring people together and have them work as a team… he may have more to learn from the rest of them as far as [being a superhero] is concerned. But as far as bringing disparate people, very different people, together, Ray will be the one to really help gel them together as a team.”
We’re really excited to have Ray fronting the team and the new show because, as long-time fans of Routh (seriously, check out his work on Chuck) we reckon he’s got the wit, charm and presence to lead this team where they need to go… what about you?
