They are both set to appear in December in a crossover event in Arrow and the Flash.

Hawkman looks great! Certainly way better than the one who appeared in Smallville. And the look is very realistic for the world they will be appearing in. But...is it me or does Hawkman's mace look a little too small? It needs to be bigger.

Speaking for myself, I don't really don't get why the casting directors cast Ciara Renée as Hawkgirl. Ethnicity aside, just look at her. She looks terrible as Hawkgirl. She just looks really weird in that helmet. Aside from that, the rest of the outfit looks great on her.



I have no objection at all about the casting other than the Watchmen evocations and the actor being a little too slight in build, though while the costuming is adequate it will be impossible to gauge its full success until we see them in action and the Wings are added - with Hawkman it's all about the Wings.
I love Hawkman. One of the reasons I came to love him was the John Ostrander series' with him, it made me see the potential in the character and ground him into a reality I could appreciate. And while Carter Hall is a different character the fundamentals to Hawkman's appeal is the costume and Wings as they are the first thing you see. Considering the costumes don't appear to carry any harness and are designed as almost full figure I strongly suspect the producers will be going for a pseudo-mystical concept where the wings grow from their backs or appear from nowhere, and that I would be dissapointed with as it alters the concept. I much prefer the idea of a mechanical effect and harness as it is more dramatic and effective than magic organic wings - Hawkman should not be taken for being the X-Men's Warren Worthington...
