In early 2016, The CW’s ambitious superhero slate, which already includes Arrow and The Flash, will get even bigger with Legends of Tomorrow, a new superhero sci-fi adventure that will unite heroes and villains from both previous shows, including some new additions, in a battle against the immortal Vandal Savage (Vandal Savage is going to be on live-action TV; this is an Age of Miracles, friends).
The series kicked off production this week, and while we know many of the major players involved, there are still some question marks for fans. Sure, we’re familiar with The Atom (Brandon Routh), the resurrected White Canary (Caity Lotz) and even Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), but what about the new guys? What about fan-favorite DC Comics characters Hawkman (Falk Hentschel) and Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee)?
Well, we’ll have to wait a while to see them in action, but today The CW finally released a first look at their costumes.
The colors are certainly more muted than the comic-book versions of the characters, but I absolutely love those helmets, and I’m very happy to see that Hawkman gets to keep his mace. Oh, and as for the wings, these versions of the characters just sprout them when necessary, so we’ll see them in action later.
Hawkman and Hawkgirl will make their debut in this season’s still-officially-unscheduled Arrow/The Flash crossover episode before joining the Legends of Tomorrow cast in 2016. What do you think of the costumes?
