In quite an unexpected turn of events, DC's Legends Of Tomorrow managed to silence its critics last year by returning with a brilliant second outing. The fun, action-packed time-traveling show received acclaim during Season 2, with some even believing that it had become the best of The CW's Arrowverse shows.
In a quest to find the Spear of Destiny, the Legends capped off their amazing season by defeating the Reverse Flash and saving reality itself. And while that season finale left us with many questions, almost all of them revolved around the cliffhanger (which saw the Legends literally break time).
However, with the show's return almost upon us, The CW has released a brand new trailer for Season 3. And be warned, it looks even crazier than the previous two. Check it out below:
While Legends' San Diego Comic-Con sneak peek gave us a glimpse of what to expect from the upcoming season, this trailer wastes no time delving into some of the biggest shocks. But it still manages to maintain the fun vibe that makes the show so great.
Brave New World
Picking up where Season 2 left off, the new trailer focuses on the team's reaction to the new timeline they have landed in, and highlights some of the biggest changes. Among the time aberrations, we see Julius Caesar turning up in Aruba while Romans party at Arubacon 2017.
From Dragonballs and P.T. Barnum to Dinosaurs and King Arthur, it's clear that historical figures are showing up in times and places that they shouldn't exist in. So we should expect to see the same off-the-wall type of humorous interactions between the past and future that the #TV show is renowned for.
Ironically, in Season 1 the Legends had a reputation for being misfits that always ended up making things worse. But by the end of Season 2, they proved themselves as reliable time-traveling #superheroes. However, their mistake in the Season 2 finale will undoubtedly set all their hard work back as they are now faced with a completely new timeline, full of aberrations.
Does The Trailer Introduce One Of Season 3's Main Threats?
The trailer closes on a rather humorous note as the Legends find themselves outnumbered and seemingly arrested by a gun-sporting faction. As Sara aptly points out, it's an awkward confrontation, and it leaves us wondering if these unknown assailants are one of the season's new threats?
While we do know that both The Flash's Gorilla Grodd and former Big Bad Damien Darhk will be part of a mystical legion, we're not sure which entity is the actual Big Bad this season. And the reason for that is because the Legends will also face opposition from Rip Hunter's newly-created Time Bureau.
The Bureau won't take too kindly to the heroes' time-traveling escapades, and it certainly looks like this group of people in the trailer aren't fans either. Could the Bureau arrest the Legends for messing up the timeline? After all, you can rest assured that a team of agents devoted to protecting time won't take too kindly to the Legends' rewriting of history.
As expected, it looks like we're in for one wild ride with Season 3 of Legends Of Tomorrow. The new trailer gives us a glimpse of what we can expect to see in this unpredictable timeline. From time aberrations to the debut of the Time Bureau, it's clear that the Legends will have their work cut out for them. But the question is: can they restore the timeline, or is the damage permanent? Time will most certainly tell.
Legends Of Tomorrow returns to The CW on Tuesday, October 10.
