Hawkgirl And Hawkman Are Flying Into The CW


Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg are once again tied to a legen—wait for it—dary comic book TV  series. The duo responsible for “Arrow” and “The Flash”, along with Marc Guggenheim (“Eli Stone,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” “Pan), have been hard at work on the CW’s next hit, “Legends of Tomorrow.”

Production on DC’s “Legends of Tomorrow” officially began this week and to finish off a productive week of filming, DC Entertainment and The CW has released the first official look at Ciara Renée and Falk Hentschel as Hawkgirl and Hawkman!

The two star as Kendra Saunders (Hawkgirl) and Carter Hall (Hawkman), who are soulmates and reincarnations of ancient Egyptian royalty. Don’t fret, the show is more than just a story about two elderly lovebirds (see what we did there?).

The show’s main character is the charming Rip Hunter, played by British actor Arthur Darvill, who travels through time to assemble a team of heroes and villains to fight Vandal Savage (a 6,000 year old immortal who doesn’t look a day over 30) from destroying the world and time itself. In addition to old people and a time-traveling Brit, the show features White Canary (Caity Lotz), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), The Atom (Brandon Routh), and Firestorm (played by Victor Garber).

Renée already made a brief appearance on the season finale of “The Flash,” while Hentschel will make his debut on the network in the crossover episodes of “Arrow” and “The Flash.” 

We’re definitely looking forward to seeing Routh play another superhero (having played Superman in 2006’s “Superman Returns”). “Prison Break” fans will also enjoy seeing Miller and Purcell reunited for another series. All in all, the show in jam packed with good talent and more DC superheroes than we’ve ever seen on a show. 

“Legends of Tomorrow” is scheduled for 15 episodes with a midseason premiere in early 2016.
