    A Cleopatra 2525 remake!? I am in!!!

    I was hoping for Green Lantern, but this sounds/looks fun. Why hasn't there been speculation about Wonder Woman series/appearance?

    Wow it looks like they have a pretty amped up effects budget!

    Hopefully they can keep it up with all that CGI.

    I still would have preferred they keep Caity Lotz on Arrow (especially given how they bring her back here), but if this show is where she'll be kicking butt now, I'm in.

    I wonder if they have this planned as a midseason so they can better set up the new series and resolve some issues with Arrow and Flash so they have a cleaner slate to begin the new series. For example, I think having white canary being resurrected in Arrow instead of LoT, could resolve some Arrow plot lines, and would allow LoT to get started on their own story arcs.

    maybe Malcolm will say he was protecting all along and he and Thea can be cool again.

    The actress who plays Hawkgirl tweeted that
    she and her co-stars will be appearing in the Flash finale. But I'm hoping that the scene shown in the preview where Flash and Arrow are talking to them doesn't occur in the Flash but we'll see.

    One question I have is, will Rip Hunter also work out on a Salmon Ladder?

    Here's the official trailer. Series premiere is set for Jan. 21, 2016.



    Watching this, and being current on Arrow and Flash -- and also having seen the previews for what's upcoming on those shows -- it is really amazing how much those shows have been co-opted to launch this one. The tail is really wagging the dog here.

    Yes and no. If there were no LoT, Flash and Arrow would still stand up in their own with the extra characters.

    Yes, I'd say they've done a better-than-average job of leveraging the existing show(s) to expand the franchise.

    obviously, they're taking a lesson from what Marvel did, but i wouldn't call it tail wagging the dog. As Tony
    said, each show can stand on its own just fine.

    It's weird that they're using the guy who played Superman in the movie for The Atom. And it's still weird to see the two brothers from Prison Break play Captain Cold and Heatwave.

    Well, A guy who played Superman, in the least-successful Superman movie, a decade ago...
