RUMOR: Is Warner Considering a Hawkman or Hawkgirl Movie?

I want to preface that this is completely a rumor and is in no way yet confirmed or even close to being a reality yet. But there’s a lot of really thick smoke out there pointing to a certain fire. And a lot of times when there’s smoke…

There have been some whispers being spread around that Warner is eyeing a Hawkman or Hawkgirl movie. Beyond that there’s not much known, but it does raise some interesting possibilities for the post-Snyder era of the DCEU.

Although Hawkman and Hawkgirl were done on The CW’s Arrowverse, the characters have had multiple origins in the comics. While the TV shows went with the Egyptian angle, it’s possible they’d go with the more scifi one for the movies. That could allow it to tie into Green Lantern Corps. Then again, the Egyptian angle could allow them to tie into Shazam and Black Adam.

Once again, this is only a rumor that’s being spread around but there’s enough there to at least put it out there as an interesting possibility that they may be exploring.

Update:

Not long after running this, The Wrap’s Umberto Tweeted:

First Look at Hawkman and Hawkgirl from Legends of Tomorrow

DC Comics has released a photo unveiling the look for Hawkman and Hawkgirl from the upcoming Flash and Arrow spinoff, Legends of Tomorrow.

Instead of being from the planet Thanagar as the characters have been since the Silver Age, the show is actually going with the original 1940s Hawkman where he’s a reincarnated Egyptian prince. While that may be unfamiliar to fans of the character in the recent comics, it’s still true to the original origin and the origin that makes the most sense to do in the Arrow-verse.
