Dec 21 2009Surely We Need a Hawkman Movie

Amongst all the big-budget superhero adaptations in the last decade, there's one obvious element that's been missing: a winged man in barbarian garb wearing a helmet with a beak and holding a mace. Wait, never mind. It turns out we're doing that. Say Pajiba:

The Hollywood Cog ... tells me that Warner Brothers and DC Comics are developing a big-screen version of Hawkman.

Warners is looking to make Hawkman a tentpole franchise, and describes the movie as part Indiana Jones, part Da Vinci Code and part Ghost ...

So Hawkman--who has various ridiculous histories, including his history as a toy that really annoyed me because the wings barely fucking flapped when you squeezed his legs--is being re-envisioned as an archaeological adventure that offends the Catholic church and helps Demi Moore with her pottery projects? Because that makes perfect sense for a man who flies around with a mace; I'm just making sure I get it.

Lame. (that's; just one word)

i would sooner suffer through a big screen aquaman

and even the crappy lou diamond phillips one made a few years back by the smallville people


aquaman may suck with teeth, but even he is better than hawkman

They had to put something out there to compete with the awesome draw of ant man.

Hawkman actually could work better as a movie than a comic.

No, this is perfect- the Egyptian origin is the best one. I kind of love Hawkman.

Okay, but he's got to be played by Ethan Hawke, with a Mohawk., and he's going to have to be hocking Oxy Clean.

No thanks. Its DC

Harvey Hawkman, Attorney at Law...

Has Colbert signed on yet?

pajiba gets about one story right for every nine they float. at this point i'm thinking their "hollywood insider" is the midnight janitor at one of the studios.

The Hawkman origin story would make a great movie and could easily be made into a Trilogy as well as possibly be key in getting a JL movie going.

All though Hawkman had his best days going solo or fighting along side the JSA making him a JL member again definitely wouldn;t be out of the question as far as comic book movies go.

Dang!... is hollyweird desperate here to make a "tent poll" out of a hero that's usually seen in the background or behind Superman and muttering his concerns about the latest plans from Batman...
