Fans hoping to see the DC Universe’s legendary winged, wayward lovers brought to live-action life will soon get their chance on The CW’s upcoming DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. It has been announced by DC Comics that actor Falk Hentschel (Transcendence, Reckless) will be taking on the role of Carter Hall, otherwise known as Hawkman, on the eagerly awaited new series, which also stars Ciara Renée as Hawkgirl.

On DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Carter Hall is the latest reincarnation of an Egyptian Prince who is fated to reincarnate throughout time along with his soulmate, Kendra Saunders. Like Kendra, Carter can access the powers of the Hawk God, Horus, transforming him into the winged warrior known as “Hawkman.”

Along with starring opposite Cam Gigandet in the CBS series Reckless and with Johnny Depp in the film Transcendence, Hentschel’s appeared in the Channing Tatum action flick White House Down, with Tom Cruise in Knight and Day and on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., among other TV and movie appearances.

It’s also been revealed that Hentschel will first appear as Hawkman in next season’s crossover episodes of Arrow and The Flash before continuing the role on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, similar to the technique used to introduce Barry Allen into what’s now become the Arrow/Flash universe.

While her older sister Lois may still be hunting down stories in Metropolis, it appears that Lucy Lane is heading for National City.

As revealed by DC Comics, Jenna Dewan-Tatum (Witches of East End) has been cast in the recurring role of the younger Ms. Lane on CBS’s upcoming Supergirl. Described as brash, funny and as beautiful as her older sister Lois Lane, Lucy is strong, smart and successful in her own right. She's got a history with Jimmy Olsen (Mehcad Brooks) and she's come to town to right a previous wrong. She’ll first appear in the third episode of the show.

While not as well known as her sister, Lucy Lane was first introduced back in the Silver Age, where she worked as both a flight attendant and an air traffic coordinator. She also initially served as a sometimes love interest for Jimmy Olsen, so her “history” on the show with Brooks’ Olsen isn’t all that surprising. However, she’s probably best known to DC Comics fans as the most recent iteration of Superwoman. In pre-New 52 storylines, Lucy obtained powers similar to a Kryptonian by wearing a mysterious suit. Whether we’ll ever see this take place on Supergirl, however, remains to be seen.

While it’s been a while since we’ve seen Lucy Lane outside of comics, this isn’t her first time on the small screen. She’s previously shown up on Superman: The Animated Series, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and Smallville.
