The CW is dedicating a whole night to Warner Bros’ catalog of upcoming DC comic book adaptations, with a brand new “Suicide Squad” trailer set to debut during the two-hour block of programming.
“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Their Time Is Now” will give an in-depth look at the network’s “Arrow”-“The Flash” spinoff series, while “DC Films Presents: Dawn of the Justice League” will preview “Batman v Superman” and other upcoming films on the slate.
The “Legends of Tomorrow” special, airing first, will introduce viewers to the immortal madman Vandal Savage (played by Capser Crump), the time master Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), and the motley band of heroes and rogues he assembles to try to save the future of humanity: Hawkman (Falk Hentschel), Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee), White Canary (Caity Lotz), The Atom (Brandon Routh), Firestorm (Victor Garbor and Franz Drameh), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), and Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell).
“Dawn of the Justice League” will preview the upcoming DC comic book adaptation films coming out starting next year, featuring interviews with directors Zack Snyder (“Batman v Superman,” “Justice League”) and Patty Jenkins (“Wonder Woman”) and stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot.
The two DC specials will air Tuesday, Jan. 19 starting at 8 p.m. on The CW.
