UPDATE 6/22/15 11:50 AM: The CW has officially refuted Spoiler TV's article, reaching out to CBR News to state the report that Hawkgirl may get her own solo series is "not true."

Hawkgirl 0509f

Original story: Maybe The CW should consider changing their name to DC-TV.

According to a report by SpoilerTV, The CW is in the early stages of developing a series focused on the solo adventures of Hawkgirl, starring Ciara Renée.

Renée made her onscreen debut as Kendra Saunders during the season finale of "The Flash," and is slated to play the winged warrior as part of the ensemble on this fall's "Flash"/"Arrow" spinoff "Legends of Tomorrow," alongside Brandon Routh's the Atom, Caity Lotz's "White" Canary and Arthur Darvill's Rip Hunter.

Should The CW opt to take the development forward, it is reported, they are likely to forgo the pilot process and order the project straight to series.

There is no indication yet whether or not a potential "Hawkgirl" TV show would serve as prequel to the events of "Legends of Tomorrow," be set after it, or run concurrently.
