Aldis Hodge is in talks to play Hawkman in DC’s Black Adam with Dwayne Johnson

Dwayne Johnson will finally get to play Black Adam after a few years of getting the project off the ground. The anti-hero usually goes up against Shazam, but for the new film it looks like he will be battling some members of the Justice Society of America – Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), Hawkman, Doctor Fate and Cyclone. The latter two have yet to be cast.

However, it seems that Aldis Hodge (Leverage, The Invisible Man, One Night In Miami) is in talks to take flight as Hawkman.

Several incarnations of Hawkman have appeared in DC Comics, all of them characterized by the use of archaic weaponry and by large, artificial wings, attached to a harness made from the special Nth metal that allows flight. Hawkman is most often depicted as human archaeologist Carter Hall—the modern-day reincarnation of an ancient Egyptian prince named Khufu—or as alien police officer Katar Hol from the planet Thanagar.

I imagine they will be sticking with the Egyptian prince side of things to tie the character with the origin of Black Adam.

I still think Hodge would have made a better John Stewart / Green Lantern rather than Hawkman. Either way, Hodge is a fantastic actor and he will be excellent in the role.

Black Adam is due to begin production in late winter or spring of 2021 according to THR. Jaume Collet-Serra (The Shallows, Non-Stop, Jungle Cruise) is directing the new Warner Bros. DC movie.

How do you feel about Hodge playing Hawkman?
