It looks like the upcoming Dwayne Johnson DC Comics Superhero, Black Adam, has cast its Hawkman.
Jaume Collet-Serra is directing the comic book movie, which will also feature Noah Centineo as Atom Smasher. The two heroes along with Doctor Fate and Cyclone (the latter have not been cast yet) will make up the superhero team known as the Justice Society that will be tasked with reining in Black Adam’s anti-hero antics.
Though Hodge was most recently in the remake of The Invisible Man, he also appeared as MC Ren in Straight Outta Compton, the “Black Museum” episode of Black Mirror, Friday Night Lights, and Supernatural; he’ll soon be seenin the upcoming Regina Kingmovie One Night In Miami. He’s a powerful, charasmatic actor you’ve seen around for a long time but now, finally, is getting his due.
Black Adam is currently scheduled for release in December 2021 but there’s probably a chance that moves back. Either way, things are heating up again on the DC universe.
