DC Entertainment/Warner Brothers has been mining its second teir heroes in hopes of finding their next character to franchise into feature films, and while I would have liked to have seen The Flash first (with Niel Patrick Harris of course) it seems the feelers are out on Hawkman!
After multiple appearances on Smallville, Hawkman, seems to have warmed up DC Entertainment Execs for his own film, which would pair him up with the Green Lantern as another character outside the “Big 3″ (Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman) to get a feature film adaptation. It seems that Warner Bros is moving forward on development of a Hawkman movie, with the project being out to writers right now.
Still a bit early to say “it’s happening” but with treatments being brought forward there is potential that a script may land on the desk with a smile and fit nicely in the updated more realistic DC Superhero Films.
Of course, they wouldn’t even have considered this if it wasn’t for the success of Batman Begins and the subsequent creation of Warner Brothers’ DC Entertainment studio.
Now any superhero sounds stupid when you say their powers out loud with a sarcastic snark, but if handled well any character has the potential to be a great movie.
I did find this funny timing considering this video that’s been making the rounds recently.
So if they do a serious Hawkman… who do you get to play the Thangorian Winged Warrior?
I’d like to see someone like Matthew Fox or Brian Austen Green.
