Get ready for some serious DC universe for your plate. The CW has just released a new promo for its “hour of power” featuring a pair of specials taking viewers behind the scenes of DC Entertainment’s upcoming superhero projects. According to the promo, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Their Time Is Now offers a behind the scenes look at The CW’s latest series, a time-traveling “superhero mash-up” spin-off from Arrow and The Flash.
