The CW has unveiled the very first promo pic, an official synopsis, a video featurette, a first poster and the first trailer for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, also revealing in one fell swoop the identity of Caity Lotz's (Arrow) costumed character and the big bad villain of the new series.

The upcoming 13-episodes superhero TV series is set to premiere as part of the network’s midseason lineup (which is a bit of a surprise, but they appear to be going down the same route as Marvel’s Agent Carter event series). The show will star Arrow and Flash alums Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/Atom, Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart/Captain Cold, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory/Heat Wave, Ciara Renee as Kendra/Hawkgirl, Victor Garber as Professor Martin Stein and Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter. So, who is Caity Lotz playing, then? She’ll be playing ... White Canary, while the other half of Firestorm's identity is being kept under wraps.

Lotz’s return had been shrouded in mystery ever since it was announced she was coming back for the Arrow/The Flash spinoff. She played Sara Lance/Canary on Arrow until she was murdered under Malcolm Merlyn's (John Barrowman) orders. In the wake of her death, the Canary mantle was taken up by her sister, Laurel (Katie Cassidy) on the series. From the trailer, we can see that Sara gets reborn thanks to the Lazarus Pit, and that the villain our Legends will face off against is Vandal Savage. In the comic books, Vandal Savage is an immortal villain and one of DC’s biggest bads, who first appeared in the pages of Green Lantern.
