Supergirl Goes to Superhero School in Trailer for Legion of Super-Heroes
Published 6 months ago
The Legion of Super-Heroes may not have gotten the spotlight like the Teen Titans or Young Justice have over the years, but DC is set to remedy that with a movie coming out in 2023.
Just in, we have a new trailer for The Legion of Super-Heroes, and it features a young Supergirl going to the future for some hero training. Watch this:
Here’s the synopsis:
Welcome to the 31st century and the Legion Academy, where a new generation hones their powers with hopes of joining the Legion of Super-Heroes. Devastated by tragedy, Supergirl struggles to adjust to her new life on Earth. Taking her cousin Superman’s advice, Supergirl leaves their space-time to attend the Academy. There, she quickly makes new friends, as well as a new enemy with old ties: Brainiac 5. But a nefarious plot lurks in the shadows – the mysterious group known as the Dark Circle seeks a powerful weapon held in the Academy’s vault. Find out if the budding heroes can rise to the challenge in this all-new DC Universe Movie!
The last time we got the Legion onscreen, it was back in 2006 with The Legion of Super Heroes which featured a team that had Lightning Lad, Saturn Girl, Bouncing Boy, and Brainiac 5. One unique character in the film was a young Clark Kent, and it’s implied he trains with the Legion first before going to Metropolis to become Superman.
The film looks to be following the series storyline with a character sent from the past to train with Legion, but rather than Superman, we get Supergirl joining the Legion’s ranks.
No specific release date has been set for Legion of Super-Heroes, but you can catch the film when it comes out on digital and Blu-ray sometime in 2023.
