Before the Justice League of the Arrow–Flash universe takes on Vandal Savage in the spinoff DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the immortal DC villain will wreak havoc in the upcoming crossover episodes, “Legends of Today” and “Legends of Yesterday.” The trailer for the former has landed online, showing Team Arrow and Team Flash joining forces with Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée) and Carter Hall/Hawkman (Falk Hentschel).
In a photo released earlier this week, we saw both of the winged Thanagarians (that’s the alien race of Hawkgirl in the comics) chained up by the scarlet speeder and Green Arrow. This fate hasn’t changed, especially for Hawkman. Based on the official plot synopses for the crossover events, it seems the trailer also has footage from “Legends of Yesterday,” as Carter is later seen talking to Kendra at an undisclosed location.
Watch the trailer below.
In addition, a second promo has been making the rounds, though this one doesn’t have too much new footage to show. Instead, it promotes the behind-the-scenes action the crossover will reveal of the fan-viewing party, in addition to commentary from the producers and stars.
Of course, Vandal Savage will return for Legends of Tomorrow, which will see a battle to stop this baddie across time. Hawkgirl and Hawkman will also return, in addition to Firestorm (Franz Drameh and Victor Garber), Atom (Brandon Routh), White Canary (Caity Lotz), Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller). Meanwhile, the Arrow–Flash crossover will debut in two parts: “Legends of Today” will premiere December 1st on The CW at 8 p.m., while “Legends of Yesterday” has the same time slot on December 2nd. Check out the plot descriptions for the hours below.
“Legends of Today”: In its second major crossover event with Arrow, Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) arrives in Central City and sets his sights on Kendra Saunders (guest star Ciara Renée). After Vandal attacks Kendra and Cisco (Carlos Valdes), they turn to Barry (Grant Gustin) for help. Realizing how dangerous Vandal is, Barry takes Kendra to Star City and asks Oliver and team to hide her until he can figure out how to stop Vandal. However, things quickly go from bad to worse when a man with wings AKA Hawkman (guest star Falk Hentschel) shows up and flies off with Kendra. Meanwhile, Harrison (Tom Cavanagh) develops a serum to make Barry run faster and asks Jay (guest star Teddy Sears) to test it out.
“Legends of Yesterday”: Oliver (Stephen Amell) and Barry Allen (guest star Grant Gustin) take Kendra Saunders (guest star Ciara Renée) and Carter Hall (guest star Falk Henstchel) to a remote location to keep them hidden from Vandal Savage (guest star Casper Crump) while they figure out how to defeat him. Malcolm (John Barrowman) arranges a meeting between Vandal, Green Arrow and The Flash that doesn’t go as planned. Meanwhile, Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), Thea (Willa Holland), Diggle (David Ramsey) and Laurel (Katie Cassidy) work with Team Flash to come up with a weapon powerful enough to destroy Vandal Savage.
