Broadway actor Ciara Renée has been cast in the untitled Arrow / Flash spinoff as Kendra Saunders, known to fans as Hawkgirl.
This incarnation of Hawkgirl will be a reimagining of the character. The description of the character goes as follows:
In the new series, Saunders is 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.
It was reported that three DC characters that have never been seen on television would be introduced on the spinoff, and seeing that Hawkgirl has appeared on Cartoon Network's Justice League and Justice League Unlimited, it seems that any character has the potential to join the series as long as they haven't appeared on live action television.
Shayera Hall, a different version of Hawkgirl, appeared recently on The CW's Smallville in a very limited role, with beauty queen Sahar Biniaz portraying the character. Despite the character appearing on the show, she was never seen in her Hawkgirl attire.
Ciara Renée will star alongside Brandon Routh, Victor Garber, Caity Lotz, Dominic Purcell, and Wentworth Miller. The untitled spinoff is expected to air midseason in 2016 on The CW.
