The Black Adam movie has found its Hawkman in Aldis Hodge!

Hodge most recently starred in The Invisible Man and won acclaim for his upcoming performance as Jim Brown in Oscar winner Regina King's directorial debut, One Night in Miami. He will now join the upcoming DC movie alongside Dwayne Johnson as the titular anti-hero and Noah Centineo as the superhero Atom Smasher. Jaume Collet-Serra (Jungle CruiseThe Shallows) will direct based on Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani's latest draft of the script from a previous draft by Adam Sztykiel (Rampage).

Hawkman aka Carter Hall, member of the Justice Society of America, is part of the pair of lovers from Ancient Egypt destined to constantly be reincarnated throughout time and space. He has been a regular presence in DC Comics since his debut in 1940 and has apppeared in DC's animated and live-action series with his last appearance being in DC's Legends of Tomorrow (portrayed by Falk Hentschel) in 2016 but the character has never really made it into a live-action feature, until now.

During the DC FanDome virtual event in August, Johnson teased that Hawkman would make his movie debut in Black Adam as part of the Justice Society, along with Centineo's Atom Smasher, and Doctor Fate and Cyclone, roles that have yet to be cast.

Black Adam is scheduled to open in cinemas December 23, 2021.
