Is a Hawkman Movie to Follow Green Lantern?
Posted by GoreMaster Special Effects on December 24, 2009
Are Warner brothers and DC planning a Hawkman movie after Green Lantern? According to Pajiba, the winged hero is next in DC’s line of Justice League heroes to get his own movie. Apparently, Warners is describing the project as “part Indiana Jones, part Da Vinci Code, and part Ghost,” which is a confusing trio to use in describing another movie. Does this mean Hawkman will be deciphering ancient codes to find an archeological treasure while speaking though Whoopi Goldberg?
DC and Warners have long wanted to develop a Justice League movie, though they may be trying to launch individual movies first, like Marvel has done with their Avengers characters. Producer Dan Lin, who was at one point working on the Justice League movie, told Collider that a plan from DC will be announced early next year.
“[Justice League’s] on-hold right now as DC sorts out its strategy but as you’ve talked to Allen Horn and Jeff Robinoff it seems like they’re building to Justice League instead of going with the team movie first and doing individual movies after that… they’re unveiling their DC strategy in January so you’ll hear more about that and they’ll speak about that in the new year.”
Lin says that the only other adaptation he is working on is a Suicide Squad adaptation, which he described as “Dirty Dozen set in the world of supervillains,” while he was unsure if a Wonder Woman movie will get made. Lin wasn’t asked about a possible Hawkman movie, though it was his opinion that DC and Warners wanted to follow Marvel’s example.
“I don’t know for sure, but as a fan it feels like that’s what they’re doing as I watch their movies being laid out.”
