Black Adam movie may feature Hawkman, Stargirl and Atom Smasher? Yes, please!

March 10th, 2019 by Marc Comments

With word being that Shazam! is a cracking little watch and even possibly an Aquaman-type success for Warners/DC, it’s no surprise that news has come up about the long delayed Black Adam movie.

Over four years after Dwayne Johnson signed on to star as the anti-hero, we were starting to give up hope, but now we have news.

Word is that writer Adam Szytkiel has handed in a script that the top cats at Warners are pretty excited about and   it, like Birds of Prey and Suicide Squad 2, will really expand the DC universe in more exciting directions.

Word is they are currently looking for an actor aged between 30 and 39 to play Carter Hall AKA Hawkman!

On top of this, the studio is looking for an actor and actress aged 20 to 29 to play Atom Smasher and Stargirl as the duo tend to be portrayed as a couple in the comics.

Interestingly, the first Suicide Squad movie was set in Midway City, home of Hawkman and Hawkgirl in the comics… and The Doom Patrol, who are currently the stars over on the DC Universe streaming service.

Black Adam is set to begin filming on March 2020 and we expect more exciting news in the coming weeks and months.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
