World premiere of new trailer for 'Suicide Squad' to debut during 'Dawn Of The Justice League' special

It's a full night of action from DC Comics Tuesday, Jan. 19, as The CW presents two all-new half-hour specials, "DC's Legends Of Tomorrow: Their Time Is Now" (9 p.m.), and "DC Films Presents: Dawn Of The Justice League" (9:30 p.m.), which features the world premiere of the new trailer for the upcoming feature film "Suicide Squad." The specials will premiere following an original episode of "The Flash" (8 p.m.).

"DC's Legends Of Tomorrow: Their Time Is Now" is an in-depth look at the origin stories of the heroes and villains of the new series, "DC'S Legends Of Tomorrow," which premieres Thursday, Jan. 21 (8-9 p.m.). Featuring show clips and interviews from "Legends," "Arrow" and "The Flash" executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg, Phil Klemmer and Wendy Mericle, "Their Time Is Now" introduces viewers to the immortal madman Vandal Savage, the time master Rip Hunter, and the motley band of heroes and rogues he assembles to try to save the future of humanity: Hawkman, Hawkgirl, White Canary, The Atom, Firestorm, Captain Cold and Heat Wave.

"DC Films Presents: Dawn Of The Justice League" invites viewers behind the scenes of the new movies coming out of the DC Films universe, culminating in the world premiere of the all-new trailer for "Suicide Squad," DC's misfit crew of antiheroes forced into saving the world this summer, with director David Ayer. Hosted by filmmaker/writer/lifelong comics fan Kevin Smith, with special guest DC Entertainment's Geoff Johns, the special showcases the landscape of DC's greatest heroes, kicking off with "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," in theaters this March, and with a sneak peek from the upcoming "Wonder Woman" feature film. 

Get a look at never-before-seen footage, and see interviews with such stars as Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill and Gal Gadot, and directors Zack Snyder and Patty Jenkins - just a few of the creative forces behind the much-anticipated film franchise that will bring together the greatest collective of superheroes in the upcoming "Justice League" feature film. And because no superhero could make his or her mark without a truly formidable foe, the special also provides glimpses of DC's most famous supervillains.
