Just hours after the season finale of Arrow, the show's second spin-off series DC's Legends of Tomorrow has been officially unveiled.
The CW has released the first promotional image for DC's Legends of Tomorrow showing off the full team, along with a series synopsis which confirms past reports and reveals just who Caity Lotz will be playing in the 2016 mid-season show after her character, Sara Lance (a.k.a. Black Canary), was killed on Arrow by Malcolm Merlyn. First, the promotional image:
Lotz will be taking on the superhero identity of White Canary. There's been no word yet on the exact nature of the transition or how her character came back from the dead.
Here is the full synopsis of DC's Legends of Tomorrow from the CW:
When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?

Based on the characters from DC Comics, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”), Marc Guggenheim (“Arrow,” “Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” upcoming “Pan”).
