Kryptonsite.com 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.
