The CW has released a new extended trailer for DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow’s midseason premiere, “Raiders Of The Lost Art”. It features a lot more of Rip Hunter’s return, but he’s not quite the Rip Hunter the rest of the Legends remember. The episode airs in the UK on Sky One on 2 February.
The official synopsis reveals: “When Damien Darhk (guest star Neal McDonough) and Malcolm Merlyn (guest star John Barrowman) try to capture Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) in 1967, they create an aberration big enough to draw the attention of the Legends. However, when the team arrives, it discovers that Rip has no memories of his past due to ‘time drift’ and is just a graduate film student. After trying to convince Rip of who he was, they discover that he possesses an incredibly powerful artefact known as the Spear of Destiny, which the Legion of Doom is after. Ray (Bradon Routh) and Nate (Nick Zano) realise that the aberration has also affected them personally making it difficult to help the team. Meanwhile, Rory (Dominic Purcell) asks Stein (Victor Garber) for help and makes him promise to keep it a secret from the team.”
