DC's Legends of Tomorrow Fight Confederate Zombies in New Clip

If you can't beat them, join them the old saying goes, and if AMC's "The Walking Dead" can turn zombie killing into ratings gold, then it's probably high time "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" crew tackled the undead themselves.

Fortunately, that's exactly what they are due to do in tonight's installment, traveling back to 1863 to take on zombies in confederate uniforms in an episode titled "Abominations." The CW has just released a clip of our heroes engaging these monsters in hand-to-hand combat via their official YouTube channel.

As you might expect, there is a lot less gore on The CW, but that doesn't mean we don't get some effective knife action from Sara (Caity Lotz), and also Mick (Dominic Purcell) using a rock to crush the head of one particularly speedy shambler.

But what we don't know is what is animating this corpses in the first place, and what is making them so fast -- but viewers of the show won't have to wait for long.

Airing Thursdays at 8 pm ET/PT on The CW, "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" stars Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, Brandon Routh as the Atom, Victor Garber and Franz Drameh as Firestorm, Caity Lotz as White Canary, Maisie Richardson-Seller as Vixen, Dominic Purcell as Heatwave and Nick Zano as Citizen Steel.
