For years The Rock teased his involvement with DC Comics, then in 2014, the wrestler turned actor announced that he would play anti-villain Black Adam.
Almost five-years since, the film is still in development and the studio decided to have Black Adam and Shazam standalone origin films, before the two eventually meet down the line. Shazam releases next month, and the social media reactions have been great, now many are wondering where the studio are at with Black Adam.
According to The Hashtag Show, writer Adam Sztykiel (Rampage) handed in the latest draft of the film last month. It’s rumoured that the script includes roles for Carter Hall, a.k.a Hawkman and fellow Justice Society of America members Stargirl and Atom Smasher.
For the role of Hawkman, its said Warner Bros are looking for an actor between the ages of 30-39, they emphasis they need someone believable enough to thrown down with the People’s Champ.
For Stargirl and Atom Smasher they are searching for actors between 20-29 to play the duo, who are lovers in the comic books.
Hawkman origins has ties back to ancient Egypt, depending on which origin story they go with, so things would tie up nicely with Black Adam’s origins.
I like the idea of them introducing these characters, Hawkman would be a welcome addition to the DC Extended Universe (or whatever its being called now). I’m trying decide who would be great in the role, if they’re wanting someone to go toe to toe with The Rock, perhaps Alexander Skarsgård, my personal favourite would be Taylor Kitsch, although he may be too small height wise.
Let us know in the comments below your thoughts on potential additions to Black Adam.
