In this new promotional trailer for CW’s forthcoming, DC-centric series, Legends of Tomorrow, Rip Hunter and the gang head for 1975, the world of Joni Mitchell, Cher, the Osmonds, Studio 54 and of course, T. Rex, hence the song, “Bang a Gong (Get it On)” playing in the background. Is it truly a soundtrack piece, or is it blaring from the speakers of Rip Hunter’s time traveling tugboat? I would think the latter since Rip Hunter’s vehicle is layered in posters representing his favorite bands like Yes, David Bowie, The Captain and Tennille and Freddy Fender.
So, Rip Hunter convinced Atom, Heatwave, Captain Cold, the Hawks, Team Firestorm and White Canary to travel back to 1975 for….something. Probably a very interesting mission which will be further expounded when the series debuts January 21st. Could it be to acquire Bo Derek’s autograph? How about….catching a performance of Ziggy Stardust in full ‘Spiders from Mars’ regalia? Hmmm. Not sure what else they could be…WAIT! Diana Ross! That’s the connection!
