'Legends of Tomorrow': Fairy godmother, unicorn, and more magic ensue in DC series' season 4 trailer
Offering a glimpse of the 70s Woodstock style setting, season 4 trailer unleashed a host of magical creatures, sending fans wild with imagination.
It is no secret that DC's 'Legends of Tomorrow' has been shifting gears to take a magical turn, away from the trend set by other superhero shows like 'Arrow' and 'The Flash'. And moving into the fourth season, this shift is certainly going to get even more intense - as apparent from the latest 'Legends' trailer released by The CW.
Offering a glimpse of the 70s Woodstock style setting, the season 4 trailer unleashed a host of magical creatures, sending fans wild with imagination. From confronting a magical unicorn to a tryst with the fairy godmother and ultimately crossing paths with some Salem-style witches in the middle of their rituals, the team of superheroes, including John Constantine, Ava Sharpe, and Nora Darhk are in for one roller coaster of a ride in the upcoming season.
To summarize in the words of Constantine, it's going to get action-packed from here on. "Get ready for the fight that is coming, darkness is rising," announces Matt Ryan's magical hero in the trailer, keeping up with the ominous tone that fans have grown accustomed to.
"What’s great about John in this situation is it’s a bunch of characters where we don’t know how they would interact," said the actor teasing Constantine's part in the upcoming season of 'Legends of Tomorrow'. "So that’s being discovered and created. So that’s a new, kind of wonderful, angle and dynamic for me as an actor playing John. Kind of discovering those things in the moment."
While fans of DC comics are no stranger to this trickster's gimmicks, they, however, might be surprised to see an emotional side to the character. "Wherever John goes, there’s conflict. He brings his bag of tricks, but he also brings his emotional baggage with him. And he’s someone who, as we know, will sacrifice his best friend for the greater good," teased Ryan.
He continued, "So he has his own motives and his own goals. So to bring him into this world, it’s like ‘What happens?’ And that’s the most interesting thing about doing this character in this context."
In addition to the host of new comic book characters, 'Legends of Tomorrow' would also be transporting fans to an entirely different era in season 4. So far, the pictures from the season and the official synopsis have already hinted towards a 70s boho vibe with a sprinkle of magic.
"After the Legends defeated Mallus and wiped the final anachronism from time, they find themselves in unfamiliar territory with the Time Bureau. All that changes when Constantine (Matt Ryan) informs Sara (Caity Lotz) of a new magical threat that leads the team to Woodstock. Constantine thinks he knows how to defeat the new threat, but will need the help of the team and their special klepto talents to help with his spell," according to the synopsis.
