'DC Legends Of Tomorrow' spoilers: Falk Hentschel playing Hawkman, will make guest appearance in The Flash and Arrow before becoming LoT series regular


The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow has found its Hawkman and finally cast Falk Hentschel.

Hentschel will play Carter Hall, also known as Hawkman, according to a BitBag report.

The character is expected to be a major part of the show as he will serve to connect Legends of Tomorrow to other DC franchises produced by the network like Arrow and The Flash.

Based on a report by The Hollywood Reporter, Hawkman will be making guest appearances on the two shows before he becomes a permanent part of Legends of Tomorrow.

In an interview, showrunner Phil Klemmer said that Legends’ incarnation of Hawkman will already be 5,000 years old, after being reincarnated multiple. The main difference between his character and his counterpart Hawkgirl will be his ability to retain the memories he had of his previous lives while the latter could not.

Another cast member who also has previous connections to Arrow and The Flash is Brandon Routh who plays Ray Palmers aka The Atom. It can be recalled that Palmers appeared in multiple episodes of Arrow and guested on The Flash last season.

Based on the BitBag report, the plot will revolve around the character of Rip Hunter, played by Arthur Darvill, a time traveler who seeks to save his timeline by going back in time to form a band of superheroes and supervillains to stop an apocalyptic event that will destroy the world at the hands of the immortal Vandal Savage.

According to the show’s IMDB page, also set to star in the series are Victor Garber as Dr. Martin Stein, Caity Lotz as Hawkgirl, Casper Crump as Vandal Savage, and Franz Drameh as Jay Jackson. The show will also reunite Prison Break co-stars Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller who will play Heat Wave and Captain Cold, respectively.
