There are a ton of comic book movies being released in 2016, but the small screen is not wanting for new superhero properties.

The trailer does a good job of highlighting the unique selling point of Legends of Tomorrow; while Arrow and The Flash have been heroes from the outset, many of the characters in Legends don't see themselves that way.

Legends of Tomorrow will premiere on the CW on January 21, 2016 before making its way to UK TV next February.
