Welcome to the Legion!


The Flash/Arrow spinoff has a new cast member. Ciara Renée has been cast as the DC character Kendra Saunders, a.k.a. Hawkgirl, according to Deadline. Renée is a relative newcomer, graduating with a degree in musical theater from Baldwin Wallace University in May 2013. She appeared on Broadway in Big Fish and Pippin, and on television with a guest spot on Law & Order: SVU.

In the series, Saunders is just learning about her frequent reincarnations and the wings that sprout from her back when provoked. Renée joins Brandon Routh (Arrow‘s Ray Palmer/The Atom), Wentworth Miller (The Flash‘s Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell (The Flash‘s Mick Rory/Heat Wave), and Victor Garber and Caity Lotz, though their roles are yet to be named. The spinoff will likely hit midseason next year.
