Once Again, Hawkman is Coming to a Live Action DC Show Before Batman, Wonder Woman or Superman
We all know that Hawkgirl is going to be one of the stars of the upcoming Legends of Tomorrow show. Well apparently, DC Comics and The CW are also going to bring her paramour, Hawkman, into the universe with her! Actor Falk Hentschel has been cast as Hawkman, to appear on Arrow and The Flash!
How insane is this? Believe you me, I’m all in favor of expanding The CWverse. But Hawkman? For reals? They’re gonna try to make Hawkman work?!
Remember when he appeared on Smallville?
Hawkman is an inherently silly character. And why couldn’t Hawkgirl stand on her own? Why does she need Hawkman to show up too? I suppose that’s just nit-picking. I’m gonna love seeing both of them when they appear! (Also in random Hawkman news, I totally bought a Hawkman LEGO mini-fig at Boston Comic-Con this weekend! Woot!).
Also, once again, a live action DC TV show (universe) gets Hawkman before it gets Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman, just like in Smallville. This is a pretty backwards way of thinking.
This also means my hopes of adding the Wonder Twins to The CWverse just got a lot brighter!
