(KBCW) – We only seen glimpses of actress Ciara Renée as Kendra Saunders aka “Hawkgirl” on the trailer for “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.” But now, The CW has revealed a photo of Renée and co-star Falk Hentschel as their characters Hawkgirl and Hawkman.

On DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Hawkgirl and Hawkman are destined to reincarnate through time as winged, helmeted warriors whose powers come from the ancient Egyptian Hawk god, Horus. Together they will fight alongside the Atom (Brandon Routh), Firestorm (Victor Garber & Robbie Amell), White Canary (Caity Lotz), Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) against the immortal Vandal Savage (Casper Crump).
When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat—one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself.
Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known? DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars Victor Garber (The Flash, Alias); Brandon Routh (Arrow, Superman Returns); Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who); Caity Lotz (Arrow); Ciarra Renee (Pippin); Franz Drameh (Edge of Tomorrow); with Dominic Purcell (The Flash, Prison Break); and Wentworth Miller (The Flash, Prison Break).
Based on the characters from DC Comics, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash, upcoming Pan), Marc Guggenheim (Arrow, Eli Stone, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), Andrew Kreisberg (Arrow, The Flash, Eli Stone, Warehouse 13) and Sarah Schechter (Arrow, The Flash, upcoming Pan).
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow premieres on KBCW 44 Cable 12 in January 2016.
