Hawkman Movie Plans Revealed – A Bit Like These Other Popular Movies

Warner Bros. are in the process of hiring writers for a Hawkman movie, but already have their most basic of basic pitches for the film in place. All this just when we’d been asking “When will Hawkman get his movie?”

Here’s the published logline:

Part INDIANA JONES/DA VINCI CODE, part GHOST tentpole about the fictional superhero that appears in D.C. Comic books. He used archaic weaponry and large, artificial wings attached to a harness made of the Nth metal that allows flight. Most incarnations of Hawkman work closely with a partner/romantic interest named Hawkgirl or Hawkwoman in his fight against supervillains. Based on the DC comic.

This has been doing the rounds on tracking boards, from The Tracking Board to It’s On The Grid (with thanks to Badass Digest and The Playlist for sharing their takes).

I’ve done a little digging and a little asking around myself, and it seems that there’s really nothing more to report at this stage. We can tell that Warners aren’t interested in the alien or mystical Hawkmen, so Katar Hol, Zauriel and Fel Andar will be out of the running. Charley Parker’s probably not much of a likelihood either – that would be like getting a Batman movie with Dick Grayson in the suit.

The reference to Ghost pretty much locks in Carter Hall, anyway. Just like the reference to The Da Vinci Code locks in a migraine and mild nausea.
