Ciara Renee and Arthur Darvill cast as Hawkgirl and Rip Hunter in the Arrow/Flash spin-off series

23 minutes ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The CW has added two familiar DC Comics characters to the cast of the upcoming Arrow/Flash spin-off, with Ciara Renee (Law & Order: Svu) set to play Kendra Saunders, a.k.a. Hawkgirl, and Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who) signing on as Rip Hunter.

The character description for Kendra Saunders describes her as “a young woman who is just beginning to learn that she has been repeatedly reincarnated over the centuries. When provoked, her ancient warrior persona manifests itself, along with wings that grow out of her back, earning her the moniker…Hawkgirl.”

Meanwhile, Rip Hunter is described as “a roguish time traveler who hides the strains of being responsible for history itself behind a facade of charm and wit.”

The as-yet-untitled spin-off is being eyed for a midseason premiere, and also features Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Victor Garber (Martin Stein/Firestorm), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), Dominic Purcell »

'Arrow'/'Flash' Spinoff Gets 'Doctor Who' Star as Rip Hunter

4 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The CW Network has added yet another actor to its Arrow / Flash Spinoff cast, bringing aboard Doctor Who star Arthur Darvill to play DC Comics character Rip Hunter. We reported earlier this month that the spinoff will feature three characters from the DC Comics who have never been featured on a TV show before, with Rip Hunter being the second of these mystery roles to be cast. Here's the description of his character, previously known as "The Traveler," from this month's earlier report.

"Described as a "Han Solo-esque rogue who gets by with his charm, this hero hails from the future, and has journeyed back in time on a secret mission. His razor-sharp wit hides the pain of a man who has lived through serious conflict. He also harbors many secrets, always leaving both his teammates and the audience unsure of his true allegiances."

The CW’s ‘The Flash’/’Arrow’ spinoff casts Hawkgirl and Rip Hunter

5 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

While Marvel comics have enjoyed success on the big screen over the years, their counterpart DC Comics has similarly found success on the small screen. The company’s most notable two shows have been Arrow and The Flash, both of which have enjoyed critical and commercial success on The CW. The world that the two shows have created led to the announcement that the channel was developing a new spinoff series that would be set in the same universe. Now the as-yet-untitled series has cast its first two original characters, as the creators have tapped Doctor Who‘s Arthur Darvill to play Rip Hunter and newcomer Ciara Renée to play Hawkgirl.

The duo will be joining a number of already-established characters and castmembers from both shows, as the series has already confirmed the casting of Brandon Routh, Wentworth Miller, Victor Garber, Dominic Purcell, and Caity Lotz in the spinoff. Of the group, »

Doctor Who Star Added To Arrow/The Flash Spinoff As 'Rip Hunter'/'The Traveler'

6 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Rip Hunter has been cast in the untitled Arrow/The Flash spinoff, and The CW has found an actor who is no stranger to time travel. Doctor Who alum Arthur Darvill is in final talks to play The Traveler, a character they describe as "a roguish time traveler who hides the strains of being responsible for history itself behind a facade of charm and wit." We heard that the series would feature a time traveller, but many fans believed that it would be Booster Gold. Hunter led a team of time-travelling heroes when he was first introduced; could the likes of The Atom and Captain Cold be part of that? Darvill is also known for appearing in ITV drama Broadchurch. The actor joins a cast which includes Brandon Routh, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Victor Garber, and Caity Lotz. How do you guys feel about this latest casting addition? »

The CW’s proposed Arrow/Flash spinoff continues to expand its superhero roster, with Doctor Who’s Arthur Darvill as the latest addition, our sister site Deadline reports.

As TVLine correctly predicted (hey, we’re 1-for-2!), Darvill’s character is Rip Hunter, a roguish time traveler who hides the strains of being responsible for history itself behind a facade of charm and wit.

'Arrow'/'Flash' Spinoff Casts 'Pippin' Star as Hawkgirl

7 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Rising star Ciara Renee has signed on to play Kendra Saunders, a.k.a. Hawkgirl in The CW's Arrow/Flash Spinoff. Earlier this month, we reported that the series will introduce three characters from the DC Comics who have never been seen on TV before. One of these characters was known as the "Female Warrior," described as, "a twentysomething Latina who is pretty but unassuming, book smart and socially awkward by day." The character becomes a "fierce warrior" by night, to the extent, "that sometimes she can become a threat to others." Hawkgirl was previously featured on Smallville and in the animated series Justice League, so this character might not be the "Female Warrior" in question. Though it should be noted that the Smallville version of the character was Kenrda's Aunt Shayera Hall.

Deadline speculates that the previously-confirmed Caity Lotz may play the Female Warrior, since her Arrow character Sara Lance, »

Ciara Renée Will Play Kendra Saunders, aka Hawkgirl, in CW's 'Arrow'/'Flash' Spin-off Series

8 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Ciara Renée primarily a stage actress, who appeared on Broadway in "Pippin" and "Big Fish," while also making a mark in the workshop productions of "Hamilton," "Three Little Pigs," and "Bull Durham," in addition to several regional credits, has been cast in the CW’s proposed "Arrow"/"Flash" spin-off series, playing Kendra Saunders aka Hawkgirl, which is a lead role. Quite a quick climb for the young actress, who only just graduated from University in May 2013, from Baldwin Wallace, with a Musical Theater degree. The spinoff project featuring characters from both "Arrow" and "The Flash" will star Brandon Routh (as Ray/The Atom) and Caity Lotz (formerly Sara/Canary), as well as The Flash‘s Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold) and Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein aka half of Firestorm).  Ciara Renée's Hawkgirl/Kendra Saunders character is...

Arrow/The Flash Spinoff Casts Relative Newcomer As Hawkgirl

8 hours ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Deadline reports that Ciara Renée has been cast as Kenra Saunders/Hawkgirl in the highly anticipated Arrow/The Flash spinoff series. While her name may not be instantly familiar, she's starred in Big Fish and Pippin on Broadway and made her small screen debut last year with an appearance in Law & Order: Svu. The character appeared in Smallville, so this clearly isn't one of the three being introduced who has never been seen in live-action before. According to the official description, "Kendra Saunders is a young woman who is just beginning to learn that she has been repeatedly reincarnated over the centuries. When provoked, her ancient warrior persona manifests itself, along with wings that grow out of her back, earning her the moniker…Hawkgirl." It sounds like they're very much embracing the comic books here then. Renée joins a cast which includes Brandon Routh, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Victor Garber, »

Ciara Renee Joins Arrow-The Flash Spinoff As Hawkgirl

9 hours ago | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The CW’s crossover spinoff series involving key characters from The Flash and Arrow has added a brand new name to its leading roster. Set to join the highly-guarded series is Ciara Renee, whose TV debut came recently on Law and Order: Svu, in the role of Kendra Saunders Aka Hawkgirl.

A relative newcomer to the industry, Renee will be collaborating on the comic book team-up alongside a slew of returning stars from both individual shows. 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), Victor Garber and Caity Lotz are all signed on for appearances. The latter – Caity Lotz – is one of the most intriguing additions to the cast as her character perished on Arrow, therefore making her return all the more mysterious.

Ciara Renee To Play DC's Hawkgirl

11 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Stage actress Ciara Renee has scored a leading role as Kendra Saunders aka Hawkgirl in The CW’s proposed "Arrow"/"The Flash" spinoff series.

The superhero team-up show will blend recurring fan favorite characters from both shows along with three new DC superhero characters never seen on TV. Hawkgirl doesn't seem to quite fit into that latter group though as she has been portrayed on screen in both the animated "Justice League" series and in a guest starring spot on "Smallville".

In the new series, Saunders will be a young woman who is just beginning to learn that she has been repeatedly reincarnated over the centuries. When provoked, her ancient warrior persona manifests itself, along with wings that grow out of her back, earning her the moniker Hawkgirl.

The show is currently slated to begin early next year. Brandon Routh, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Victor Garber and Caity Lotz are »

Trickster To Return For More "Flash"

11 hours ago | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Mark Hamill's turn (and return) as The Trickster on this week's "The Flash" is looking like it probably won't be the only time the actor appears in the series as the flamboyant villain.

Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg tells THR that the hope is Hamill's Trickster will team up with other members of The Rogues. He particularly likes the idea of the Trickster meeting the cool and calculating Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller).

Kriesberg says "What was cool about the Trickster on both series is he was smart. No matter how crazy he was, he was so smart and he thought four steps ahead."

Hamill says he had one condition about reprising the role: "I'm not getting back into the one piece jumpsuit. I'm not getting back into that spandex deal".

Speaking of the series, some new photos from the set of filming on the first season finale have arrived over »

The Flash, Ep. 1.16, “Rogue Time” and the problems with time travel

25 March 2015 6:05 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The Flash, Season 1, Episode 16, “Rogue Time” Written by Brooke Eikmeier & Kai Yu Wu

Directed by John Behring Airs Tuesdays at 8pm Et on the CW - Last week, The Flash took our hero in an unexpected trip through time after running so fast when trying to stop a tidal wave. The question left hanging at the end of the episode was how many of the big events would be undone now that he’s ruptured the time continuum? As many of us expected and feared, the events of “Out of Time” are completely undone: Cisco discovering that Harrison Wells is the Reverse Flash – Dr. Wells killing Cisco – Iris confessing her feelings for Barry, and Barry revealing his secret identity to Iris – are all wiped clean. The result is very disappointing.

As mentioned last week, the concept of traveling into the past becomes a bit murky the second causality rears its head. »
