Filming is now under way on the upcoming Arrow and The Flash spinoff, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The series will unite heroes and villains from both shows as well as introducing a fair few other fan-favourite characters along the way. That includes Hawkman and Hawkgirl.
Above is Ciara Renée as Kendra Saunders and Falk Hentschel as her soulmate Carter Hall in the first official image of the two characters. With powers derived from the ancient Egyptian hawk god, Horus, Kendra and Carter are destined to reincarnate through time as winged, helmeted warriors. They both look surprisingly close to their comic book counterparts!
On DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Hawkgirl and Hawkman will fight alongside the Atom, Firestorm, White Canary, Captain Cold and Heat Wave against the immortal Vandal Savage.
However, they will first be making an appearance in this year’s Arrow/The Flash crossover episode which is expected to set up the events of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. There are currently no big screen plans for either Hawkman or Hawkgirl (that we know of anyway), so it makes sense that The CW will give them the spotlight in this highly anticipated series.
Whether or not that will lead to them getting their own show down the line is unclear.
