‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Winter Premiere Trailer: Who Reprogrammed Rip Hunter?


DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is flying back into action on the CW on a new night, a new time and with the return of Rip Hunter. A new trailer for the winter premiere, “Raiders of the Lost Art,” reveals what happened to Rip that led him to become a movie director in the 1960s.

Rip, who now believes his name is Phil, was apparently reprogrammed and his mind has been scrambled by the Legion of Doom, the supervillain alliance formed by Damien Darhk, Reverse Flash and Malcolm Merlyn. Phil refuses to believe what the Legends tell him, but an appearance by the Waverider sets him straight. There’s also a trip back to the Revolutionary War and a big meeting and battle between the Legends and the Legion.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns Tuesday, January 24 at 9/8c on the CW, following the winter premiere of The Flash.
