Arrow and The Flash are spinning off a show for the CW network this fall which will combine supporting characters, both heroes and villains, from each show. Producer Greg Berlanti explained that "the new project will also include three major DC Comics characters who have never appeared in a TV series." This immediately raised the antennae of fans all over the world, as speculation increased about who those mystery characters would be.
Another major character was announced today for the still untitled spin-off. Newcomer Ciara Renee has been cast as Kendra Saunders, also known as the winged hero, Hawkgirl. Here is how Deadline describes the role.
