The CW Network is gearing up for what is going to be a big opening with The Flash season 2 and Arrow season 4 coming back in October. The big news though is that they have cast Falk Hentschel as the iconic DC hero, Hawkman, in their upcoming 2016 show, Legends of Tomorrow.
Carter Hall is the Egyptian Prince who is reincarnated throughout time with his very own soulmate Kendra Saunders. Both Kendra and Carter have access to utilise the super powers of the Hawk God Horus. When Carter activates these special abilities, he then becomes Hawkman.
The CW Network have mentioned that like other characters that have been introduced into their ever-expanding television universe, the inception of Carter will come from cross over episodes with The Flash and Arrow.
