Two new promos for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow have been released, focusing on Carter Hall, aka Hawkman, and Kendra Saunders, aka Hawkgirl.

The short videos were released by The CW’s official Legends of Tomorrow Twitter account and introduce us to the characters Hawkman, played by Falk Hentschel, and Hawkgirl, played by Ciara René. Whereas Kendra Saunders was introduced a little earlier on The Flash, Carter Hall made his first appearance during the epic The Flash/Arrow crossover event that took place in early December.

Carter Hall is the reincarnation of the ancient Egyptian prince Khufu, who is reincarnated every time he dies. He also happens to be the soulmate of Kendra Saunders (Ciara René), aka Chay-Ara, aka Hawkgirl, who was an Egyptian priestess. Both are the mortal ennemies of the series' villain, Vandal Savage (Caster Crump).

Not only do we get to meet the immortal prince, savior, warrior, hero and Legend (that’s what the video tells us) and the former barista/immortal warrior princess (nope, not that one), but also there’s new footage in there, so dig in!


When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere on The CW on Jan. 21.
