SMALLVILLE Selects Hawkgirl and Deadshot Actors

Smallville is continuing to do what we want the most - more DCU characters. If he ain't gonna fly or wear the suit (which is going to change - please make it so) you have to give me lots of characters within the DCU to wet my appetite. To it's credit, Smallville has interject many characters over the last few years: Green Arrow, Aqualad, Flash, Steel, Doomsday and a few JSU characters. has reported that actors have been cast as notable DC characters Floyd Lawton and Shayera – AKA Deadshot and Hawkgirl

Playing Shayera will be Sahar Biniaz, a beauty pageant contestant who Kryptonsite notes had small roles in three previous Smallville episodes and in Watchmen. It's not clear if we'll see Shayera's Hawkgirl alter-ego in the episode she appears in, "Shield", which is the second of the season. That episode will also feature Michael Shanks reprising his role as Carter Hall, AKA Hawkman. Also still in question is whether Shayera will appear in the present or only in flashbacks. The character was previously referred to in the two-hour "Absolute Justice" episode, which introduced the Justice Society.

"Shield" will also introduce Deadshot, played by Bradley Stryker. Fans of The OC may remember Stryker as the first actor to play Ryan's brother, Trey, in Season 1 (Logan Marshall-Green played Trey in later appearances). Stryker also played a soldier on the first few episodes of Stargate Universe.

Hawkgirl and Deadshot are just two of several new DC characters set to debut in Smallville: Season 10, including Darkseid, Blue Beetle and Booster Gold.

  1. Hawkgirl is Purty. Might have to tune in to a Smallville episode for the first time in a long time.

  2. sarah shahi would have been a better choice for Hawkgirl...closer in age to Michael Shanks
