According to EW, the 30-year-old German actor has been cast as Carter Hall – aka Hawkman – for the upcoming DC show on The CW.
He will first appear on the crossover episodes of Arrow and The Flash.
The mag describes his character as “the latest reincarnation of an Egyptian Prince who is fated to reincarnate throughout time along with his soulmate, Kendra Saunders (Ciara Renee). Like Kendra, Carter can access the powers of the Hawk God, Horus, transforming him into the winged warrior known as Hawkman.”
Arrow will be staying in the 8PM Wednesday time slot for the upcoming 2015-2016 season on the network, just before Supernatural.
