Aldis Hodge to Play Hawkman in DC Films’ ‘Black Adam’
Aldis Hodge will soar as the DC Comics superhero Hawkman in the New Line production of “Black Adam,” Variety has confirmed.

The actor — who most recently starred in “The Invisible Man” and won acclaim for his upcoming performance as Jim Brown in “One Night in Miami” — is in negotiations to join the film, starring Dwayne Johnson as the titular anti-hero, and Noah Centineo as the superhero Atom Smasher. Jaume Collet-Serra will direct; Rory Haines and Sohrab Noshirvani (“Informer”) wrote the latest draft of the script, from a previous draft by Adam Sztykiel (“Rampage”).

Johnson is also producing with Dany Garcia and Hiram Garcia through their Seven Bucks Productions, and Beau Flynn is producing through FlynnPictureCo.

With his massive wings, hawk-like helmet and magic mace, Hawkman has been a regular — if convoluted — presence in DC Comics since his debut in 1940, but the character has never really made it into a live-action feature.
