Legends of Tomorrow's Hawkman and Hawkgirl Revealed!
Hawkman and Hawkgirl have officially arrived with the first pictures of the DC Comics heroes from CW's Legends of Tomorrow.
They're the ill-fated lovers with powers derived from Ancient Egyptian Gods, and they just so happen to have the power of flight; Hawkman and Hawkgirl are definitely two of DC Comics wackier heroes, and CW's Legends of Tomorrow appears to have fully embraced their unique style judging from this first image of the characters from the show.
Played by Falk Hentschel and Ciara Renée, Hawkman and Hawkgirl will join CW's newest superhero collective in attempting to stop the immortal supervillain Vandal Savage from destroying...well, everything. Leading this quest is the time-travelling Rip Hunter who is joined by an eclectic team of DC Heroes and villains including Firestorm, The Atom, White Canary, Heat Wave, and Captain Cold.
One thing that is particularly noticeable about these costumes is that they continue CW's fascination with overly 'leathered' heroes. While the alternative to leather-fied costumes isn't great (no more spandex!), it is starting to feel that CW's DC Comics shows are being influenced by some kind of Leather-lobby. Just look at Diggle's new duds! That being said, those helmets are pretty sweet and we can't wait to see the pair with their wings extended!
You'll be able to see Carter and Kendra in special crossover episodes with Arrow and The Flash before Legends of Tomorrow premieres early next year.
