    Ciara Renee is Hawkgirl!
    What did people think of the trailer? Did you like the small glimpses of her costume we got?

    From what little we saw of her, both the wings and the flying look good.

    I agree. She was one of my fave characters in the JL cartoon so I was glad to see she had a part in this.

    As long as it's better than Smallville's Hawkman, I'm good.

    From the stills and image enhancements on what we've seen...the helmet and outfit look spot on with the comic, it looks wonderful......from what we can see.

    Ciara Renée hasn't tried on her Hawkgirl wings yet.

    I'd imagine that her look is difficult to translate to live-action, especially the wings. So they're probably still fine-tuning the costume. It looked like it was blue and gold in the trailer, the boots definitely looked blue. I guess the big question is, will her wings be real (like they sprout out of her back or something) or will they be part of her costume?

    As for not focusing on her, they seemed to be mostly focusing on the more popular characters in this trailer. Sara, Captain Cold (Heatwave didn't get much to do either), The Atom, and Rory.

    Outside of him getting killed off, what was the issue with him? I thought he was the one JLAer that they really nailed to a tee, costume and all. Plus Michael Shanks is about 1,000 kinds of awesome.

    His costume was on-point, and still looked bad. I remember thinking "WOW, that costume just does not translate well to live-action." His personality and backstory, on the other hand, that was well-done imo.

    Well, I thought what they initially did with his wings did not look right. So, it was better when they made it CGI and that it could fit inside some backpack.

    I thought the helmet could have looked better.

    I wasn't really feeling the chest armor they gave him, specially the glowing emblem (which turned off like he was some robot or something when he died).

    I hope the Hawkgirl costume stays true to the comics. I like Kendra Saunders' backstory. The team has 3 high-flyers of the group so I can see some high-flying action in this series than either Arrow and Flash.

    First of all Ciara Renée is freakin :hrt: MOD. Can we ad her name to the thread title?
    She reminds me a bit of a young(er) Gina Torres, only more:awesome:

    HAWKGIRL! "...A girl with wings and a passed lives complex" :D

    Second:
    They should just call this CW incarnation-

    Ciara Kendra Muñoz Saunders Hol Renée

    What's so freakin trippy in a beautiful kismet sort of way about Ciara Renée being cast, is how close Ciara sounds to Shayera/Shiera. And the word Renée in french means reborn.

    The actresses' name playing Shayera reborn is phonetically and figuratively: Shayera - Reborn!

    :awesome:

    While I don't think it's a casting necessity (Grant Gustin never read a comic in his life), I love to read that she's read comics and watched Justice League and actually knows and is a fan of her character.

    She looks great too.

    Ciara is pronounced Kiera.

    Looking forward to it. Been a long time fan of the Thanagarian couple.

    Considering they didn't do an actual pilot for this, I wonder if they'll put her in a costume right away now that the it's been ordered to series.

    Since Hawkgirl is Kendra Saunders, they should do storylines with her and Roy Harper from the comics.

    Outside of the character title cards and old clips from Flash, I don't remember seeing Heatwave anywhere.

    I must admit I have a particular bias for Ciara. I saw her perform live on Broadway, and it totally blew me away, but I never though I'd see her in a superhero property.
