HAWKMAN AND HAWKGIRL FROM THE FORTHCOMING CW TV SERIES [LEGENDS OF TOMORROW]

Been busy as hell, but I've got a new update today with several pics!
The CW just released this onset pic recently, as they've started filming the new TV series titled Legends of Tomorrow [which will be a spin-off from the Flash and Arrow TV series baaed on DC Comics characters].
This spin-off will feature a team of time-traveling heroes & villains, who are called The Legends of Tomorrow; and the team members will be The Atom, White Canary,  Rip Hunter [the guy from the future who guides the team], Jay Jackson, Heat Wave and Captain Cold. But the other two members of the team are HawkMan  and HawkWoman.... I mean Hawkgirl.
Word is, for the forthcoming 2016 TV series, both of the "Hawk" comic characters get their powers from some ancient Egyptian magic tied to reincarnations from Horus, an Egyptian god.... but I dunno exactly how they hide and sprout their wings on-call; but hey, its super-hero TV, so anything is possible. You can compare the pic from the TV series to the classic comic images below.


When I first saw the picture from the set, I said to myself: "This looks like some cosplay fans at San Diego Comic Con, putting their own spin on the classics."
The "bad-ass brown-leather look" is certainly different from the cartoony "green, yellow and red" hues that these characters have been known to sport in the comics and cartoons.

In the Justice League cartoons [2001 - 2004], Hawkgirl [aka Ms. Shiera] is an alien from the planet Thanagar, and she is tied to an army of winged alien warriors... so clearly, the new TV series is taking the liberty of introducing its own history for the characters. 
Plus in the year 2011, within the DC Comics alternate Earth 2, I believe Hawkgirl is either black or hispanic, which is fine with me... and that Hawkgirl uses guns, instead of a club / spiky baseball bat.

And BTW, there is another DC Comics character dating back to their Silver Age [1950s], who is called HawkWoman, [aka Ms. Shayera]... no, no, she is totally different from Hawkgirl, and she is married to Hawkman.... and they have some bald winged hawk babies, right?
LOL - Clearly things often get really complicated in the jumbled timelines of DC Comics.
 
So will the forthcoming time-traveling TV series Legend of Tomorrow be any good when it debuts early next year? I dunno, we'll just have to wait and see...
