The Flash and Arrow spinoff series Legends Of Tomorrow is quite an eagerly awaited project by fans as well as viewers of the current DC shows on air. The whole crossover treatment to establish the larger DC TV Universe is sure to benefit the upcoming superhero team-up series in a big way. But will the show manage to successfully forge an identity of its own?
Legends showrunner Phil Klemmer had earlier stated that the show will be "closer to The Flash" in terms of its overall tone and feel, and now in his recent interview, Klemmer emphasised on some of the show's light hearted and comedic moments, courtesy the ensemble cast.
"We just sort of found when you combine this eclectic group of heroes and villains, and you put them in the thrilling and preposterous conceit of being on a time-travelling spaceship, the tone kind of has to match the amplification of the characters and the tone," Klemmer told Entertainment Weekly.
"Our show, it's funny to me. The only way to leaven a team trying to save the world and an immortal bad guy who destroys it is by having really funny character moments. You can't put these eight guys in a room without cracking jokes, you know."
From whatever the cast members and producers have shared about Legends so far, it is pretty clear that the show will not have the dark undertones associated with Arrow. Well, going by the success of CW's Flash, it seems like the more sensible route. Legends Of Tomorrow is slated to premiere early 2016.
