The CW has released a first look at Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée) and Hawkman (Falk Hentschel) from their upcoming show Legends of Tomorrow, which follows a ragtag team of meta humans who travel through time thwarting the immortal Vandal Savage from conquering the Earth. Check it out.
Kendra Saunders and Carter Hall are reincarnations of Ancient Egyptian royalty; fated to be born, fall in love, and die throughout all time. They have access to the powers of the hawk god Horus, which gives them the ability to grow wings, and have donned the identities of Hawkman and Hawkgirl to use their abilities.
