It looks great, and I'll definitely be watching; it's by the same folks who bring us The Flash and Arrow, and they haven't let us down yet. (Although I'm not keen on Jimmy Olsen being portrayed as personable and self-assured on Supergirl; the other young guy in the trailer acts more like the Jimmy that I'm familiar with.) But I hope that Ray gets to the point where he's no longer coming across as the semi-goofy billionaire who's being a hero because he can afford to. He's too much like Clark Kent, in the Christopher Reeve Superman movies, with money and a genius IQ.

Welcome back, Caity Lotz!

I have to say, even just from those few short clips of her kicking and using the staff.  You can tell the actress is so much better at the physical aspects of staged fighting than the actress that plays Laurel on Arrow

I still don't get why he is called the Atom if he doesn't shrink.

And yes I know the GA Atom didn't shrink but he got the name from being very short. Palmer is not short.

I am unsure how it will work with Stein on the show, but not Ronnie.

I'm curious about when exactly Sarah was put into the Lazarus pit.  I hope they didn't dig her up after she'd been buried for 6 months... :(

And how mad is her father going to be after they hid from him that she was dead for months, only for her to be alive, and for them to hide that too?

OK, now my head is starting to hurt.

 So Rory is a time traveller again...

Yes, that is all I got from that trailer.  I did not squee one bit, and you can't prove otherwise.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

Very cool. I sand corrected.

I didn't see the trailer - just made the assumption from his Flash appearance.

I wonder if he will get any Ant Man jokes like the old SNL sketch from years and years and years ago.

Cold: "Why did you say that?"
 ;D ;D ;D

Do want.

Also, Shayera... I hope her personality will be close to the JLU version of Hawkgirl.

Edit: See if you can find someone familiar at around 1:15 ;)

Man, I had to watch that a couple of times and then pause it to catch who you were talking about...

But then I caught myself wondering if that bit wasn't just reused footage from that  cage match promo they did.

I am looking forward to this, and any comic series that they can get off the ground!  They might not all be stellar, but so far, they have all been entertaining.  The DC folks have apparently taken a page from Marvel's book, and begun tying their story lines together so that the all recognize the existence of the other, and things that go on in one (or the connected movie) have consequences in the rest.

It is a good time to be a comic fan!
What was no more, is now reborn!

It is... so, probably no Reverse Flash on LoT :(
Didn't know about the cage match and just googled and watched it.
In case anyone else hasn't seen the promo so far, click here.

Also, I got thinking... if Hunter's organization is there to protect the timeline, why didn't they go after Thawne when he travelled back in time and pretty much rewrote history?

Thawne didn't rewrite history, he just shifted events forwards. It seems like time is a little flexible and can absorb some adjustments and will stay on course.

He must have some sort of contact with the future though, maybe through Gideon.
Otherwise how he could he tell if his future was changed or not.

It remains to be seen how exactly Gideon works.  It's possible that as a relic of the future, it changes with changes to the timeline based on the present.  Somehow Thawne seems to be protected from this, or he exists regardless?  When Barry lost his powers and there was no record of the Flash in the future newspaper, shouldn't Thawne have ceased to exist since the future timeline was altered?

We can't really do anything other than speculate at this point until we get more information.  Hopefully the writers have thought all this through so that a repeat viewing of Season 1 will all make sense still.
