A Hawkman film?

12.21.2009

The greats in comics have been translated to film: BATMAN, SUPERMAN, SPIDER-MAN, IRON MAN, HAWKMAN...wait...what?!

Call this a rumor, call it whatever you want, the guys over at Pajiba.com found out from their amazing inside source that HAWKMAN is coming. Warner Brothers and DC are developing a big screen version of the reincarnation of prince, Khufu.

It seems that they are looking to do something in the direction of Kenneth Branagh's THOR. But with HAWKMAN? He is a charter member of the Justice League, but that doesn't really matter. If you were going to pick a rotating member of the Justice League, it'd be best to go with a character like Green Arrow. At some point there's going to be a movie with Green Arrow by David Goyer called SUPER MAX, but that's taking forever. Hell, HAWKMAN might be here before that film.

Here's the best I can offer when it comes to a explanation of HAWKMAN, please excuse me if I butcher it: Carter Hall was an archeologist who was the reincarnation of Egyptian prince, Khufu. There was this strange metal that he discovered that allowed him to fly. He's held his spot with the Justice League on and off, had a verbal tiff with Green Arrow, and was eventually booted for the new birdman, Katar Hol. The preferred weapons are the ones he finds from museums and later got replaced with HAWKGIRL.

Again, Warner Brothers has not confirmed this so the source may be blowing smoke up our ass. Either way it is sort of funny. Don't let his manliness in that photo confuse you.

Extra Tidbit: If I want to watch something about a man bird, I'll go with Harvey Birdman.

Although to mainstream media Hawkman is kind of obscure, he is an interesting character and one of the heroes that took my interest into reading DC comics (along with Green Lantern and Aquaman), so I'd love for there to a movie.

I mean if Marvel can bring out 'Man-Thing' then why not 'Hawkman' for DC?

I can see this film being played out across multiple era's from ancient egypt to perhaps moden day, following the various incarnations of Carter.

People should check out next seasons

People should check out next seasons 2-hour Smallville tv movie which will feature Hawkman, as played by Michael Shanks (Stargate SG-1's Daniel Jackson), as well as some other JSA team members, such as Doctor Fate, Stargirl and Green Lantern.

Also, if the movie goes ahead, bring on Shadow Thief as the villain!

Hawkman

This is more appealing to me than a Green Lantern film.

Give hime a Hawkgirl and maybe I'm in

The only thing remotely original about the comic is that he had his wife as a sidekick, a good strong female character, which was particularly rare at that time.

Excellent!

Personally, I think this is a great idea. While he is not incredibly well known, he's certainly on par in terms of popularity with Green Arrow, Daredevil, Elektra, Ghost Rider, and Thor.

It depends, however, if they go with the Ancient Egypt origin, or the Thangar origin. Personally, I love ancient Egypt, and think using that story would certainly be more interesting. It would provide the audience with a more familiar story, and visually, I think would be much more fruitful.

(and to the guy below, I'd much rather see a Hawkman film than a He-Man movie).

They are running out of interesting characters. When is Slapstick getting his own movie?

Uhh As far as I know, Hawkman was a member of the JSA, or Justice Society of America, who were the old school heroes of the 40's, the heroes that inspire Kal-El/Superman/Clark Kent.

So, yeah, Don't ever remember him being an important member of the JLA, or the Justice League of America, which are the current gen of heroes who looked up to the JSA, the old school heroes from the 40's, who included Hawkman...

Just look out for the 2 hour Smallville movie "Absolute Justice" written by

Just look out for the 2 hour Smallville movie "Absolute Justice" written by Geoff Johns which is coming in January. It features for the first time a live action JSA, including Hawkman, Sandman, Dr Fate, and Star Girl...

Interesting

With the right cast and the direction this might work, we need to see more DC heroes coming to the big screen

How?

How do you get paid to write if you can't even proofread what you've written before you post it? Re-read your last paragraph. Warner Bros. is singular so it should be Warner Bros. has and not have. And don't let his manliness in that photo confuseD you? Shit. Why not write in crayon with backward letters thrown in?

OMG! You sound like a grammar Nazi! People make mistakes. Stop trolling around looking for mistakes to cry about. "Why not" just tell everyone how jealous you are of the writers on this site, because that's what it sounds like. Then...STFU!

My problem here is not that you're trying to correct her as a writer, but you came off as condescending. Snarky little comments like your crayon comment makes me shake my head at the fanboy world.
