Review: Too many capes? Atom, Firestorm & more team up in 'Legends of Tomorrow'

Okay, so Atom, Firestorm, Captain Cold, and company are in a show together. Now what?

Late in Thursday night's premiere of "Legends of Tomorrow," a character wonders if this motley collection of DC Comics heroes and villains have been brought together for a time-traveling adventure less because they're the legends of the new CW drama's title than because they're unimportant enough in the grand scheme of things that they won't be missed in their absence.

Alan Rickman, 'Die Hard,' and the commitment of being a classic movie villain

As Hans in 'Die Hard' and Snape in 'Harry Potter,' Rickman brought joy and absolute commitment

"Galaxy Quest" was far from the most famous Alan Rickman movie, but it may feature his most autobiographical role. As Alexander Dane, a classically trained Shakespearean actor (who's constantly boasting of the five curtain calls he received for playing Richard III) forever typecast as the alien warrior he played on a cult classic TV show, Rickman was riffing not only on Leonard Nimoy's difficult relationship with Mr. Spock from "Star Trek," but also on the strange and wonderful nature of his own career.

(Now I want more props in my office back home!)
