With the fall premieres on their way, The CW has released an action-packed trailer for the second season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Despite clocking in at less than half a minute, the trailer is full of “blink and miss” moments.  You can watch the trailer yourself and check out our breakdown…

The trailer begins with Rip Hunter saying that replacing the Time Masters is an enormous responsibility. Sara Lance is quick to object by stating that they are not the Time Masters. They don’t have to follow the rules.

Things take off fairly quickly after that. A few rompy shots show Sara in bed with company as Rip Hunter berates her actions of seducing the Queen of France. Sara then defends herself and claims that the Queen of France seduced her.

Next stop on the journey through time appears to be the second World War. Mick Rory, Professor Stein, and Rip Hunter are conspiring to kidnap ladies man Albert Einstein. It is Stein himself that knocks out the genius scientist.

Switching to what appears to be Tudor times, the Firestorm duo enters a tent and ask to entertain a young nobleman. The prompt reply is ‘off with their head’.

Now we get to the juicy stuff. There is a brief flash of the sparks showering the main control rooms before the scene breaks back to WWII. Heatwave is fighting a group of Nazis and he isn’t alone. Stargirl squeezes in a few frames to knock a soldier down.

In what was literally frame-by-frame, a soldier is flipped from a balcony and – most amazingly – Eobard Thawne – the Reverse-Flash – makes an appearance.

It’s fairly tame after that. Some blurred images of Ray, Sara, and Mick fighting in roughly the 1940’s. A few frames of Mick piloting the Waverider and Rip Hunter complaining that nobody ever listens to him rounds it off.
