Now that filming is underway for DC‘s new Arrow Spin-off series Legends of Tomorrow, the CW must have decided to get ahead of any bystander that might capture pictures of the new costumes on set. This time around we’ve got our first look at Hawkman and Hawkgirl fully costumed sans wings, which I am guessing will be added CGI style in post production. Read on to see the full picture. (more…)
CW’s DC spinoff show Legends of Tomorrow isn’t set to air until 2016, which gives us plenty of time to get acquainted with several of the lesser-known DC characters that will be spotlighted. Among them will be Caity Lotz playing White Canary, and Ciara Renee as Hawkgirl. Both ladies have been dishing out lots of information on the show, and details about their characters’ roles in it.

It’s official: I have absolutely no idea what this new entry into the shared Flash and Arrow DC TV universe is supposed to be. Last month it was announced that the CW was producing a spin-off of the superhero series’ combining characters from both shows: Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) and Martin Stein (Victor Garber) from The Flash, and Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh) and a character TBA (Caity Lotz) from Arrow. It wasn’t too long before Captain Cold’s cohort Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell) was added to the cast with the promise of three more characters to come who have never before been portrayed on TV before, and now we know two: Hawkgirl and Rip Hunter.

DC New 52, it was only nine months ago that this re-boot of the entire DC Universe set the comic book community a buzz. How much would the canon we all grew up with change and would it reduce the integrity of the characters? Well with the constant competition between DC & Marvel, there has been a constant struggle to keep up or make an concept better than the other.
With Marvel’s recent announcement that they plan to wed two gay characters in next month’s issue of Astonishing X-Men, it should be no surprise that DC has an announcement of their own for the LGBT community. The face of LGBT at DC Comics has been Batwoman; the fiery red-head and former soldier kicked out of the Army due to “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”, returns home to don the cape & cowl to fight crimes. But it won’t be enough to compete with Marvel’s big announcement, so what could DC have up its sleeve.
At Kapow Comics Convention in London over the weekend, DC co-publisher Dan DiDio was asked about the possibility of other DC Characters “coming out of the secret lair” due to the reboot. DiDio responded that he
“…was more interested in introducing new LGBT characters to the DC Universe than in rebooting old characters as gay or bisexual.”
But he did let slip that
“…the company’s about to re-introduce a previously straight character who will become “one of our most prominent gay characters” alongside the likes of Batwoman.”
So this clues us into the fact that the reboot of sexual orientation will not be for a prominent character in the DC Universe, i.e: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern and etc. It may come from a character who will be making a reappearance in the universe after many years or one we haven’t seen yet. Among the possible contenders could be: Martian Manhunter, Black Adam, Shazam! (aka Captain Marvel) and Hawkgirl. Of course they could just amp up Poison Ivy being a hardcore plant-lesbian, just sayin’.
Place your bets, and sit tight ’cause DC is keepin’ their lips sealed on the identity of the new LGBT character coming to DC.
