The CW has released its first promo for the “Arrow”-“Flash” crossover coming in December that will introduce the superhero team from “Legends of Tomorrow,” the DC Comics show launching in midseason.

In the first look, Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) toasts his superhero friends. “It’s really great to see everyone. I wish it wasn’t just the dark times that brought us together.”

Meanwhile, Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) informs them that the man they’re looking for is Vandal Savage (Casper Crump), of whom Hawkman (Falk Hentschel) warns, “You’re not gonna get rid of him.”

“Watch us,” vows Barry Allen (Grant Gustin).

The trailer also teases Hawkman and Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee) worrying about their newfound allies. “Everyone in there is willing to die to protect us. You don’t think that’s a little bit insane?” she asks, to which Hawkman replies, “I think that’s what makes them all humans.”

The “Arrow”-“Flash” two-night crossover event kicks off Tuesday, Dec. 1 on The CW.
