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:

#Repost @therock: THIS IS HAWKMAN 🦅 A pleasure to welcome @aldis_hodge to BLACK ADAM. HAWKMAN is a critical leading role for our movie, as he is the fiery leader of the JSA (Justice Society of America) and one of the most beloved and legendary characters in the DC UNIVERSE. I called Aldis personally as I wanted to surprise him that he got the role and it wound up being one of the greatest conversations I’ve ever had. Aldis: Hello? DJ: Hello, I’d like to speak to Aldis. Aldis: Who is this? DJ: This is Dwayne Johnson. * long pause Aldis: Whoever this is stop playing on my phone. DJ: This is Dwayne, is this Aldis? * longer pause Aldis: This s&#% ain’t funny, I said stop playing on my f%^*!#% phone. DJ: Aldis, this is DJ. I just called to say thank you so much for sending in your audition – it was great and I really appreciate the efforts you made. Just wanted to say thanks and best of luck in all you do. And one more thing — welcome to Black Adam. * longest pause Aldis: I’m sorry you’ll have to hold on for a one second. * he puts the phone down and walks away and all I hear is inaudible yells 😂 Aldis: DJAYYYY OHHHHH S#%*!!!!!! * Im laughing my ass off by now. DJ: You ok? You’re gonna crush this role! We went on to have an awesome conversation full of gratitude, love and motivation. Can’t wait to work with this very talented brother. The perfect HAWKMAN. Let’s get to work. #aldishodge #jsa #hawkman 🦅 #blackadam⚡️

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.
