The purposed Arrow/The Flash spin-off series has cast Ciara Renée (Law & Order: SVU) as the Kendra Saunders version of Hawkgirl.
Talks surrounding the show, from Arrow creators Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg and Marc Guggenheim, involved bringing in three brand new DC Comics characters never before seen on television. However, since the character has appeared in Smallville and in past animated series including Justice League: The Animated Series, Hawkgirl is not expected to be one of the aforementioned characters.
The character is described as a young woman who is just beginning to learn that she has been repeatedly reincarnated over the centuries. When provoked, her ancient warrior persona manifests itself, along with wings that grow out of her back, earning her the moniker Hawkgirl.
If the spin-off goes forward next season, Renée will join Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Wentworth Miller, Domenic Purcell and Victor Garber, all of whom have already appeared on either Arrow or its equally successful spin-off, The Flash.
Berlanti and Kreisberg, who also co-created The Flash, executive produce the new series alongside Guggenheim and Sarah Schechter for Warner Bros. TV and Berlanti Productions.
