UPDATE: It has now been confirmed that Hodge will be playing Hawkman and was confirmed by Hodge and Dwayne Johnson. Original story follows.

It appears that Warner Bros. may have found the actor take on Hawkman, and it’s Aldis Hodge.

According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Aldis Hodge (Straight Outta Compton, The Invisible Man) is in talks to play Carter Hall opposite Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam.

The Justice Society is slated to play a large role in the Black Adam film, and Hawkman will be joined by Atom Smasher (Noah Centineo), Doctor Fate, and Cyclone. Should Hodge’s casting go through that will leave us with just two more members of the team to cast.

Black Adam is slated to begin filming in early 2021, and it still has a release date set for the same year. We are expecting that to change due to the delays.
