The DC universe is ever-expanding these days and the ranks have swelled even further today with news that The CW have found their Hawkman for the Arrow and The Flash spinoff series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.
Actor Falk Hentschel has signed on to play the DC Comics hero, whose alter-ego Carter Hall is the “latest reincarnation of an Egyptian Prince who is fated to be reborn throughout time along with his soulmate, Kendra Saunders (aka Hawkgirl).”
Hawkman is due to appear in the new seasons of Arrow and The Flash crossover episodes, before he joins DC’s Legends of Tomorrow mid-season when the show debuts. The spinoff will also feature Dr. Martin Stein (Victor Garber), Ray Palmer/The Atom (Brandon Routh), Sara Lance/White Canary (Caity Lotz), Mick Rory/Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) and Leonard Snart/Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller).
Hentschel recently appeared in Wally Pfister’s Transcendence, as well as roles in Knight and Day and White House Down.
