Since news of Aldis Hodge was reportedly in talks to play Hawkman in the coming Black Adam movie, DC Comics and Dwayne The Rock Johnson has confirmed the actor will star as Hawkman.
Hawkman is described as the ‘fiery leader’ of the Justice Society of America. Actor Dwayne Johnson, who is set to play the titular role of Black Adam, also gave a little excerpt of how the casting confirmation call went between him and Aldis. Which of course, is hilarious:
The character Hodge is set to play is Hawkman aka Carter Hall, a winged warrior said to be a reincarnation of an ancient Egyptian prince. Later iterations of Hawkman’s origins places him as Katar Hol, a member of an alien race of winged soldiers native to the planet Thanagar.
More as things develop.
