When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is a spin-off from equally successful TV series Arrow and The Flash, and further expands the “Arrowverse.”
Having seen the future, rogue Time Master Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a group of heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only puts the planet at stake, but all of time itself. For this seemingly impossible mission Rip brings together a ragtag team of divergent talents, which includes Sara Lance (White Canary), Jefferson Jax Jackson, Dr. Martin Stein (FireStorm), Ray Palmer (Atom), Hawkgirl, Captain Cold and Heat Wave.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow completes HOOQ’s catalogue of DC shows which includes The Flash, Arrow, Gotham and Supergirl (also a HOOQ exclusive). All the latest seasons of these DC shows are also now available on HOOQ.
Also debuting this month is Lucifer, a fantasy police procedural comedy-drama series. The story revolves around Lord of Hell, Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis), who abandons his throne to retire in L.A. where he owns Lux, an upscale nightclub. The charming, charismatic and devilishly handsome, Lucifer is enjoying his retirement, indulging in wine, women and song until a former “client” is brutally murdered outside Lux. Lucifer becomes involved with the LAPD when he takes it upon himself to assist Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German) in finding the one responsible so that he can “punish them”. Lucifer is now available exclusively on HOOQ.
