Things are progressing on the untitled series from The CW that’s feelign more and more like it’s going to be a bridging/mid-season kind of series between The Flash and Arrow when they take their breaks as the team-up show now has more actors and characters added to it. The latest round of additions brings us Ciara Renee as Kendra Saunders, one of several Hawkgirl characters out there. The character has appeared on TV before in Smallville, one of the more exciting episodes of the series, so it’s not one of the never before on TV characters we’ve been promised. One who is though is that of Rip Hunter, who has had Arthur Darvill cast in the role. Darvill’s got some solid credits to him, appearing on Broadchurch at the moment, though he’s more well known for his role as Rory on Doctor Who. This brings a bit more of that franchise into these, since John Barrowman is in Arrow as well as Alex Kingston, who played Jack Harkness and River Song in that world.
The official description of the character is, “Kendra 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.”
The official description of the character is, “a roguish time traveler who hides the strains of being responsible for history itself behind a facade of charm and wit.”
The series will star randon Routh, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Victor Garber, Caity Lotz, Ciara Renee and Arthur Darvill.
