Hawkman Coming to The CW?

As we start ramping up anticipation for the new seasons of both Arrow and The Flash, plus the debut of DC's Legends Of Tomorrow, a new rumor making the rounds is that in addition to Hawkgirl bashinh heads and taking names on Legends, Hawkman himself will be popping up on the network as well.  Per Newsarama:

Entertainment Weekly reports that Carter Hall, A.K.A. Hawkman, is coming to Arrow and Flash before he appears in the spin-off DC's Legends Of Tomorrow. 

The report describes Hawkman as “charismatic and wise beyond his years, Hawkman is a natural-born leader with an abundance of charm and confidence—well, that’s because he’s 5,000 years old.” Hawkman will also reportedly retain the memories from his many resurrections, unlike Hawkgirl who will have no memory of her past lives or even Hawkman when the pair meet.

This would not be the first time that Hawkman showed up on The CW, of course, as Michael Shanks portrayed the Winged Wonder a few times back on Smallville.  But it would make a lot of sense to introduce Carter as the story tool for Kendra to begin her journey of remembering all of her past lives -- which was not dissimilar to what was done on Justice League Unlimited, either.

So what do you think?  Will we have both Hawkman and Hawkgirl on the small screens this coming season?
